I'm 48, & just found out I am pregnant again

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, November 22, 2006 | 0 comments

I'm 48, and just found out I am pregnant again (natural conception--total surprise). You sound as though you are like me -- I refuse all invasive testing and unnecessary procedures, and my doctors, thank God, are fully supportive. I guess they figure by now I'm an old pro, and they pretty much leave me alone!

A 62-year-old woman gave birth Friday to a healthy 6-pound, 9-ounce baby boy, becoming one of the oldest women in the world to successfully bear a child. The newborn is the 12th child of Janise Wulf, who's also a grandmother of 20 and great-grandmother of three.


Wulf said Friday that she considers her late-in-life pregnancy a groundbreaking act for older women. "Age is a number. You're as old as you feel," she said. "Every time you revolutionize something or you do something different, there's going to be naysayers."

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
