I’m 47 & found out that I'm pregnant

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

I’m happy to see that I’m not the only women here over 45... I’m 47 and found out that I'm pregnant... It’s still a shock to me and I’m now hoping its not a mistake.. I had 3 pregnancy tests and they all read the same. I’m scared about having a miscarriage since I had one 3 years ago on New Years’ Eve.

I had my last baby a month before I turned 44. He was conceived after about 2-3 months TTC. Definitely important to know when you are fertile and take advantage of these times. I am sort of TTC at present and am 44, but as I have had 5 children I won't be too upset if I don't get another baby so will just enjoy being contraceptive free.

I am 46 years old and just found out I'm pregnant. One minute I'm happy and the next I'm scared. Is there anyone about my age out there who is in the same situation? - Lynn


I too am 46 and found myself pregnant late Sept. I had years of infertility, one ovary and now an adopted 17 year old and an 8 year old conceived via AI. I had very mixed feelings. I saw my OB who said I had a 50% chance of a miscarriage and odds of birth defects very high. Still, I secretly became excited and resolved that one way or another I would work it out.


Hi, I am turning 45 in 2 weeks and am due Jan 8,2006. I too was rather surprised to find myself pregnant, but excited as well. To say I was worried, would be not strong enough and had all the tests one can have. I am pleased to say that all is well and all signs are showing that my husband and I are about to deliver a healthy baby girl.

Go fourth and enjoy this, but be prepared for anything. Good luck and God Bless!!

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.
