My yoga instructor is 7m pregnant at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, May 04, 2007 | 0 comments

My yoga instructor is 7 months pregnant and - she is 46 years old! She said it wasn't planned, she said "we didn't even have that much sex." WOW!!!


When I talked to one of the nurses in the office I mentioned I wanted to have a progesterone test because I'm so 'old' and she you're not old, not around here anyway. The 53 year old with twins we had last year we'd consider old.


Much to my astonishment I found out last Friday that I am 7 1/2 weeks pregnant. I'm 46, and I'll be 47 in October. The baby is due November 21. I'm thrilled, as this is my first pregnancy, and I didn't think I'd ever be able to get pregnant. But I'm also scared, because I've had no morning sickness, and I've read that could be a bad sign that the baby is not firmly attached in the uterus and I may miscarry.

I wondered whether you folks might know whether morning sickness might be less common in older first-time mothers like me? I have a lot of fears about this pregnancy. It is a miracle, though. There's no doubt about that. Just being able to get pregnant at 46, that is!


My grand mother had her last child at age 52. My grandfather was a stud!


I know several women who got pregnant naturally around age 45. If you have trouble conceiving, you can get in vitro.

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.
