I am 44y & due in October

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 44 years old with nearly 19 year old college daughter, 17 year old (next month) son, 16 year old step daughter, 14 year old step son, and an October 4th due date for baby. I work full time and will have to continue to do so after the baby is born.

I don't personally know anyone with a baby right now. I am hunting for local mid-life parenting groups in order to meet others in our shoes. I am almost at 12 weeks and about to go to a big appointment in Boston to analyze for risk factors.


I was so glad to find this site, I am so sick of hearing (what are you thinking) and (have you lost your mind) by people, thinking I am to old to be having a baby.

My name is Bobbi. I am 44 from Elkhart, Indiana, I have been married for 24 1/2 years. and I have 6 kids. Jason 28, Heather 23, Timothy 21, Bryson 12, William 10, Gunnar 8 and I am now 8 weeks pregnant due Nov, 18th, 2006.

My husband and I are so excited about this baby, and all we get from our (so called) friends and co workers are how crazy we are. Thank you so much for this site it has made me feel better like I'm not a freak or something.


I was 47 when the doctor told me that the "change" I thought I was going thru was in reality... pregnancy! I'm now 60 years young, and I have a bright, beautiful, sassy teen under foot. I definitely take all things more in stride than I did with my previous children ( the eldest is 33.)


I am 47, I have a daughter 3, and a son 5. Very challenging to say the least. I sometimes feel I don't have the energy to keep up with them, but I do try.


Arlene Phillips ( judge on BBC reality shows Strictly Come Dancing and Strictly Dance Fever) has been trying to shift the pounds for decades. After years of yo-yoing in her 20s, her weight ballooned after she unexpectedly became pregnant at 48 with her second daughter Abi, now 15. She struggled to get back in shape.

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.
