I am 45 & expecting a boy

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, January 22, 2007 | 1 comments

I am also 45 and have a 20 year old daughter and a 4 year old son and am also expecting a boy on 10/28. I don't quite know if I thought this was menopause, but I was clearly in denial. I have had a really great pregnancy, aside from the usual last month stuff. I am at the point where I want it to end now...

Last night my son, my husband, and myself put the crib together and the bedding on. It made it very real. Me and my husband looked at each other and said "in a few weeks we are having another baby in this house!!" It is sometimes surreal.

I am 46 and have 3 daughters 23, 22, 19 and I have one little boy 15 months, with my second marriage and have another baby on the way 5 weeks pregnant and I feel great. Our little boy keeps me on my feet, but it’s worth it.

I am a nervous wreck. I just found out that I am pregnant. I am 46 years old and did not plan this. My husband had a vasectomy over 13 years ago. I have kids that are about to go to college. I thought I was free. I was planning to travel.

I found myself pregnant at 45. I have a 20 year old daughter in college. I was so upset that when I went for the ultrasound, I wouldn't even look at it. They were all delighted except me. My husband is 10 years younger, so he is excited. I am slowly coming around. I guess this is God's plan, although I'll be going to this one’s high school graduation in a wheelchair. Oh well!

I had the same surprise, I'm 47!, I also have two other children. We are all so excited now and let me tell you, these feelings only grow stronger each day I feel this little boy inside me. A gift? You bet! This child has changed the lives of many and for the better.

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.
