I will turn 47 2 1/2 months after delivery

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, February 25, 2006 | 0 comments

I gave up all treatments because of my chemical pg 1 year earlier on my 45th birthday, and then now at 46, I will turn 47 2 1/2 months after delivery, I will never know why it happened this way and I am not that different from most of you, I have said this many times too - I was not on any special diet, didn't exercise that much, I drank coffee every day, etc.


I have had a 2 successful pregnancies over 40, Katie at 41, Joshua at 43! I just had a 3 month miscarriage, ob-gyn said no reason not to try again so I am!! I’m 45, hubby is 47 in Sept.


I am a Labour & Delivery nurse, and yesterday there was a patient that was 50 years old. She delivered a healthy baby girl in the wee hours this morning. I called work this morning to find out how she did. No donor egg. It was her own!!!


I have said this many times but will say it again -- in my community, women are having babies into their late 40's and they do not do DE -- no woman who is having her 11th child and who is living paycheque to paycheque is going to be doing DE, right? Can we agree on this???
You need to be aware that it IS POSSIBLE for women in their late 40's and early 50's to conceive spontaneously. This is a medical fact -- if it were really SO bizarre, these women would all get into the Guinness Book of World Records, right? The truth is that it is not impossible and not only that, it is apparently not all that rare either.


My Grandmother had my mom at 45, and her sister at 46, and first cousin also had child at 46.

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.
