I'm nearly 50 & pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, May 30, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm nearly 50 (in September) and I had a Mirena IUD fitted 3 years ago to help control heavy bleeding - it worked brilliantly. However it doesn't seem to have been quite so good as a contraceptive, because I'm pregnant. Almost unbelievable, really.


One of my coworkers came into my office rather upset and confided in me that his wife, who was 45, had just found out that she was pregnant BY ACCIDENT. They had not planned on having another.


I had my daughter (my one and only) when I was 44. I was so happy to be pregnant, I didn't care what anyone else thought. Now that I'm 46, [I'm] thinking about another.


Hi Cat, Just popped in to show the "application" for membership I just received/approved today for 40PlusMoms: " I am 47 and am a parent of a 4-year-old and twin 5-month-olds. I would like to be in touch with other " older" moms of young children." Enjoying your blog... Take care ;) Debbie


My grandmother had 3 babies in her 40's. Had her last one at 45.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
