I had an easy pregnancy & healthy baby at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, March 11, 2007 | 0 comments

In my late thirties, I was chronically ill. I was desperate to improve my health. I tried many avenues, but it was the ancient secrets of Chinese herbalism that gently and powerfully brought me back to health. The results were amazing. I regained my mental and physical energy.

Next, I lost 60 pounds, after having been overweight for many years. And I got pregnant and had an easy pregnancy and healthy baby at age 44, when the doctors had told me my eggs and I were both too old.


I just want to say don’t give up on your dreams. There are a lot of ladies that have babies after the age of 45. I am 44, and pregnant right now myself. This is my second baby after the age of 40. I was talking to my OB/gyn, and he told me so far his oldest pregnant lady is 48 and doing fine, as well as the baby. I wish you lots of luck, and praying you get that little one.


Do not give up. I have a 17 year old son, and now I'm pregnant with my egg 7 months and at the age of 46.


Hi, was out surfing tonight and came across your thread. I had my last child @ 45 and TTC now.. Pray about it. I believe that women are more resilient than ever.


"Thank you, Dr. Berger and all of your staff, for giving us the opportunity to have a reversal child together. For all of those out there who have doubts about conceiving after 40, it can be done. I was almost 43 years old when we had the reversal done and 44 years at the time of Parker's birth." Jane and David S.

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.
