A client was 49 & got pregnant unexpectedly

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, December 03, 2006 | 0 comments

My acupuncturist just told me last week that she has a client who just had a baby at the same time as her mom, who was 49 and got pregnant unexpectedly! And, all was fine with mom and baby! Good luck!


By the way, when I gave birth in July, it was a month before my 44th birthday, so don't let your age get you down.


Pregnant at 44 - I have just done a pregnancy test and it is positive. I'm still in shock. My FSH level was 13, 2 months ago so I really thought that I had come to the end of the road.


I have a client whose mother got pregnant at 47 and delivered a healthy baby girl at the age of 48. I was in the party store several months ago buying birthday supplies and saw the women with my own eyes. She was "beaming" about her beautiful baby girl. She told me to never, ever, give up hope. And I'm not.


I have a friend who after having 4 girls during her 30's, found herself pregnant again at the ripe age of 47. She has a 3 year old boy now who is totally normal except for being spoiled rotten by all the girls.

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.
