I'm 44 & nearly 9 weeks along

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, February 27, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm 44 and nearly 9 weeks along. Having some spotting today which is way too scary having had a miscarriage 18 months ago at 11.5 weeks. The spotting seems to have quit and my first ultrasound is scheduled in 3 days.


I am 46 & just found out I am pregnant with my third. My previous are only 5 & 7 years old. This was a surprise, but we are happy about it. I am also terrified about the higher risks involved -- but I am thinking positively and praying for a healthy baby and delivery.


I am 44 years old, and 28 weeks pregnant with our first child. My husband decided that the small risk of miscarriage associated with Amnio was a risk we whould not take. The ultrasound and blood test are showing that everything looks normal.


At 45, I am 16 weeks pregnant with my 3rd, and very scared after reading about all the new inventions of abnormalities. We just listened to the heartbeat which was normal, I go for an amnio next week, which I am not too thrilled about. I have had some mild spotting over the last month. Just praying that all will be well.


I am 45, and recently found out that I am pregnant with a third child. I have two daughters, 13 and 11 and was planning to go back to work. I am completely shocked by this pregnancy because after trying for a third after my second daughter for three years, I was told that I was most likely infertile. My husband and I have had unprotected sex for the last ten years with no pregnancies.

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.
