I am 44 & have another due March

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, November 23, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 44 and have a 19, 18, 2 year old, and another due March 2007. I know I am a better mom now than I was in my 20's, because I am a better woman and have a better life than I did in my 20's.

My 2nd marriage is more stable, but my hubby is 56, and our 2 year old was his first, and boy howdy was he scared. He has taken to fatherhood like a duck to water though.


Last night, on the Discovery Health Channel, they had a lady on Special Delivery that was 47 years old, hadn't had a period in 2 years, had never been pregnant, never had morning sickness or any of the other pregnancy symptoms.

She had just found out in August that she was pregnant. Just goes to show you that miracles happen on a daily basis.


This Father's Day will be extra special for the Mozeley family.

Mark Mozeley, 47, and his 27-year-old son Gary do everything together. They build docks and piers on Lake Norman for the South Iredell family business, Mozeley Construction. After work they hang out, cook out and enjoy spending time with each other's families.

In October, Gary's wife Kristina, 26, gave birth to their first child, Austin.

Then, the family grew a little more last week as Mark's wife Beverly, 44, gave birth to little Hannah at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center.

Gary, meet your new sister. Austin, meet your Aunt Hannah. She's 10 days old.


I am 43, going on 44, and am 3 months pregnant with my second child, (my first was born in 84 and passed away in 2002)

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.
