I am pregnant with another son at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, April 06, 2007 | 0 comments

I have had 2 pregnancies after the magic age of "35". I had one at 40 and am pregnant with another son at 45. Both were easy pregnancies (so far). My delivery with my son was extremely easy. Good Luck and think positively.


I know of a woman posting on who is happily pregnant at 45. You have to think what is best for you.... if you are going to regret not having a 4th child when you can no longer have babies then go for it!


My mum had me at 45. Back in my mum’s day, women had kids till they couldn’t anymore, It is just natural.


My sister’s friend was kinda in the same predicament - had two teenagers and thought she was going through menopause - found out when she went to the doctors that she was five months pregnant!


I did a pregnancy test this week, and it said I was expecting. I'm I in shock. I am 45 and my husband 49. We have four boys now and never dreamed I would be having a baby now. In fact I thought I was going through menopause. Our oldest is 22 and youngest is 12. I am scared to death. We were just saying that our boys are old enough now, that we can enjoy going out together again.

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.
