Annie is pregnant at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, January 19, 2008 | 0 comments

I am responding to the message from Annie, who is now pregnant at age 47. I found out last week that I am about 7 weeks pregnant at age 46, and soon to be 47 in February.

I can't begin to go through the emotions that my husband and I as well as my 10 year old son share about this. I am excited and happy, but my husband just how coming around. - Theresa


I'm 52, and am pregnant with twins via IVF [in vitro fertilization]. We are very excited, and are due March 12. Good luck to you!! - Susan


All I want to say is congratulations! Your great shape and health will probably be in your favour. I'm about 22 weeks now. And will be 46 when the baby is born. BEST of luck to you....I'm so happy for you. - Suzanne


We conceived reasonably easily, and have two healthy noisy girls. Never tried to get pregnant earlier but we had to reverse a vasectomy which took a while.

Grace was born when I was 42, and I was 45 at Isabella’s birth. I had one very early miscarriage between, and had all the tests to confirm they were indeed perfect babies.

Good luck! My husband just turned 50 and I am 46. - Cathy


Hey -- let me tell you, my brother in law's mother had him -- her last child at 52!! And it is not as unusual these days for us older moms to start having our babies, or our last child in our 40's. Good luck to you, and go with your heart. - Kim

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.
