I am 45, and mom to 1y old Katie

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, May 03, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 45, and mom to Katie, who will be 1 year old next Thursday. I expect that she will keep me young!


My daughter is going to be a year old, I am 45, and my husband is 56.


My name is Christie. I am new to this group. I married late in life (39, two months shy of 40). I am 45 years young and just gave birth to our son six weeks ago (yes, my eggs and my husband's sperm...LOL).

We have a daughter who is 3 1/2, gave birth to her at age 41 (two months shy of 42). I have found that groups like these are wonderful to be a part of especially in ttc at an older age. I joined a couple of groups before I even had children..... Wasn't sure at the time if we would even be able to have children (due to age, etc.).

So for all of you out there TTC... It is possible, over 40, even at age 45! Hang
in there!


It is true, that there are more and more ladies delivering babies close to
50, even my daughter's paediatrician said so. He told me not to worry so
much, I'm only 41!


We had our CVS test yesterday and have to wait 2 weeks for results, so I'm trying not to obsess. But the nurse was very comforting about the age-related factors I'm worried about, and even called me "young," saying they see many 45-50 year old moms now. So cheers to all of us!

And to everyone in the fertility chase, let me just say how much I wanted to call the pessimistic fertility docs I saw in the city we lived in before -- we were led to believe we'd never be pregnant (at least not without IVF), and now here I am COMPLETELY surprised, watching this being move around on the ultrasound screen! It's still unreal. You just never know what life has in store.

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.
