I am a pregnant 45y old

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, June 03, 2007 | 0 comments

I am a PREGNANT 45 year old with a 14-month-old son. Our second son due in February. I married for the first time at 43. My husband is two years younger than me and this is his first marriage as well.

My OB says he uses me as an example for older women who want to have children. My parents also married in their 40's and my mom had me, her only child, at 43.

My husband and I feel we have a better chance at a successful marriage and at being good parents since we've already had the freedom to do anything we wanted and have no resentment over our new responsibilities. We've also had the opportunity to become more financially stable.


I am 50 with a six year old and twins who are 3. I waited a long time, but it's well worth it. Sure there are days when I wish I didn’t have to this or that, but then I look at the blessings God gave me, and am very thankful.

My husband is a big help, and that in itself is wonderful of course being 20 years younger helps too. We’ve been married 10 years - Demi Moore has nothing on me.


I'm 49 with premature grey hair, a four year old active son and 23 year old and 21 year old children in college. Sometimes it's fun to get the senior discount and the free sucker at the bank on the same day!


I am 49 and have two sons -- 4 and 6 years old. I am a stay at home mom, and absolutely love it! I am very involved with their school.


I'm a certified labour doula (professional labour assistant, or as some like to call me "professional birth coach."). I don't believe in "too old to have kids." I've assisted mothers aged 16 to 45, and can tell you their labours were no more difficult than those older or younger.

Each family has been unique (I’ve assisted about 20), and each mother completely different. Older parents do have some advantages over younger: more likely to be financially stable, more life experience, more time to gain education on parenting topics, more confidence in their abilities.

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.
