I am 48 & full-term with a healthy boy

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, February 07, 2006 | 0 comments

I am 48 and now full-term with what should be a healthy boy, I just have to see him with my own eyes. I don't have long. I felt very fit in this pregnancy, people tell me I look better so I am afraid of losing all these hormones! I would try to be optimistic. I am not sure if I was foolish but deep down I felt this baby was meant to be.


I'm 46 and 8 weeks pg. I go for an ultrasound on the 24th. I have a 5 yr. old girl and a 54 yr. old hubby. I didn't think I could get pg at this age but the miracle happened. My dh has a 35 yr. old son and 3 grandchildren.


I'll be 45 a few weeks after my baby is born. Of course I was a late bloomer and didn't even think about having children, until I got married at age 39. I've had two since I turned 40 and am expecting a third in April.


I will be 45 when this baby is born. My son is 19 and in second year of college. This was really a surprise. After all it's been 20 years and I believed he would be an only child. I am finally getting over the shock...I told my mother a couple of days ago and she reminded me that I announced this pregnancy just like I did 20 years ago! It's hard telling WHY now in our 40s but there has to be some goodness associated with it.


I am 45 years old and recently found out I am pregnant. I have 4 children: sons ages 26, 25, 23 from my first marriage and a girl 5 from my second. We have been trying unsuccessfully to have another for 4 years using ART and donor eggs with two miscarriages, had a myomectomy to remove fibroids. Then out of the blue I missed my period, thought I was starting menopause but took a test to rule out preg and came out pos!

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
