I will be 45 & I am 9w pregnant with baby #13

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, January 15, 2007 | 0 comments

I will be 45 on March 21 and I am 9 weeks pregnant with baby #13. Of those 13 pregnancies, I have had 3 miscarriages. Since I was 35, I have had 6 pregnancies and 3 healthy baby boys. My last baby was born two months before my 42nd birthday.


My own sister gave birth to beautiful twins when she was 42 and she was/is obese (over 350 pounds) has diabetes and asthma. All these high risks were against her and she still had a relatively normal pregnancy and healthy twins! I also know of another women who had her son when she was 44. You can do it too!


I was speaking with my doctor who's wife had their first of three children starting at age 41. She apparently had 2 miscarriages before that.


I have had 2 successful pregnancies in my 40's (1 at 40, 1 at 43) and 4 miscarriages (including one 5 months ago). Turned 48 last weekend and still trying though odds are small. Dr says I can still get pregnant and I'd love to have 1 more. So, who knows?


I will be 45 in less than 2 weeks. I am 11 weeks pregnant. Heard good strong heartbeat today! I rented a fetal doppler from and I can listen to my baby's heartbeat anytime I want!

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.
