I will be 45 when this baby is born

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! - Mary


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'm 46 and 8 weeks pregnant. I go for an ultrasound on the 24th. I have a 5 year old girl and a 54 year old hubby. I didn't think I could get pregnant at this age but the miracle happened. My husband has a 35 year old son and 3 grandchildren. He's not too thrilled about another baby. - Rhonda


I'm also 45 and 7 weeks pregnant - I have to wait until Friday for my ultrasound


My husband and I (age 44) are looking forward to our first baby (for both of us) Nov. 2005! We got married in '03, second marriage for both of us. We wanted to try to have a baby right away. I unfortunately had a miscarriage at age 42 which was difficult. But we were encouraged by my doctor, family, and friends to keep trying. We are very happy for our upcoming bundle of joy but we are waiting to announce the news in May when I'm further along.

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.
