I’m 47 & found out I’m pregnant at 5 weeks

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, January 08, 2007 | 0 comments

I’m 47 and found out I’m pregnant at only 5 weeks... I have different emotions, and many thoughts of Downs and miscarrying.. My 2 daughters are 26 and 22.. Just the thought of starting over is scary. I didn’t think I could get pregnant after all these years.. I sometimes see it as a gift from God and I hope everything go okay .


I wish for you the lovely experience I have had with my pregnancy. I am just 9 days away from my due date and am thrilled that I have this gift at this stage of my life. - Mama at 45


Connie Thompson met her husband when she was 41 and he was 43. They knew they wanted to be parents as soon as possible, and had their first child six weeks before Connie turned 45.


As long as I still have eggs, old or not, there's a chance of a baby...My mom was 45 for her last and I plan to follow suit..


I am not making this up, because I had dinner with this friend in person last Saturday night.

She is 44, was on the pill... and is 4 months pregnant with a boy.

Let's remember that fertility finds its ways sometimes. I was stoked to hear her story, because you JUST NEVER KNOW when it might happen to you. Her doctor told her the odds against what happened to her are astronomical -- but it still happened.

It's comforting to me, and I hope to someone else out there who's losing hope.

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.
