I’m 47 & found out I’m pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, November 27, 2006 | 0 comments

I’m 47 and found out I’m pregnant at only 5 weeks... I have different emotions, and many thoughts of downs and miscarrying. My 2 daughters are 26 and 22. Just the thought of starting over is scary.

I didn’t think I could get pregnant after all these years. I sometimes see it as a gift from God, and I hope everything go okay .


I am 47, will be 48 at the time of the birth in September. I too am a grandmother of three. Ages 6.5.2. It should be interesting to say the least !!


My Grandmother on my Father's side had my youngest Aunt when she was 48


My grandmother had her last child at 47 years and 7 months.


A friend of mine has a friend that is pregnant at 46. She and her husband have been TTC #1 for 10 years. She has had 15 miscarriages and one terminated pregnancy due to Down's syndrome. Her current pregnancy’s genetic testing came out good. My friend said that it was a natural pregnancy. She said that her friend many years ago had done all fertility drugs and stopped.

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.
