Chiropractor's wife, 47, pregnant on an oops!

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, January 25, 2008 | 0 comments

By the way, my Chiropractor's wife is 47 and her daughter is 2.5. She got pregnant on an oops, and was totally shocked. So it DOES happen!!!


There is a group on Yahoo of older moms/pregnancy after 45. There are moms on there getting pregnant over 45. I haven't been on there long, but there is a 46 year old mom with a 1 and 3 year old, and she got pregnant naturally both times. So it does happen.


Cheryl Lindsey-Selhoff of Gentle Spirit magazine fame had her youngest when she was 46, and I believe Caren is at least 44.


If it would help any - I will be just weeks away from my 48th birthday when I have this little one. She will be my 6th baby and only 2 of my other children were born in my 30's. Everyone else was born in my 40's.

Before this one, my 2 1/2 year old daughter was born when I was 45. These last 2 babies were complete shockers. I had given up and only BD [baby danced - had s*x] when I felt ovulation pain.


I am 46, starting my 9th week, and all is going well so far. This is my "first" pregnancy.........I conceived with Clomid/IUI [intrauterine insemination] , and I will be 47 when this baby is born.

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.
