I am 45, just found out I am pregnant with my 5th

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, January 11, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 45 and just found out 2 days ago that I am pregnant with my fifth child!! I am shocked and kind of nervous. Has anyone else had a baby at this age? My hubby and I truly think that this is a miracle and all the kids are so, so, excited. I had my first child at 31, and my youngest is 4.


I had my last baby at age 38. However, my friend had a baby at 46 and everything was fine.


I am going to be 45 in November, I have a three month old baby boy who is perfectly healthy. Odds are that everything will be fine.


We just found out tonight we're pregnant [at 44y]! We have one miracle little girl who's is 2 3/4! (I only count, because I can't wait to see the end to the terrible twos!). (Miracle because after 2 failed IVF cycles I was told my eggs were too old!).

I have always prayed that she wouldn't be an only child since I love my siblings. I know it is very early (I'm probably barely 5 weeks), but after peeing on 2 HPTs (one was a store brand and of course I didn't trust the positive) I know it's real.


I have just found out I am probably 2 months [pregnant] and still have to tell hubbie I am 44, he is coming up on 50.

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.
