I am a 46y Mom with an 8m boy

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, February 01, 2008 | 0 comments

Hi - I am a 46 year old Mom. I have two older kids - a 27 year old daughter, a 22 year old son, and an 8 month old boy.


Heard some great news at the OB [obstetrician] today! They just had a 46 year old give birth to a healthy baby with her own eggs - a new office record! Impressive huh?


I also don't think you're too old to have a baby. My friend got pregnant at almost 44 (naturally), and now has a beautiful 2 year old.


I am 43 years old, and just found out I am pregnant. Yikes. I am a single mom of two kids (8 and 9). I went through a very nasty divorce a two years ago, but I live with my wonderful boyfriend now.

He has never had children and is excited about the prospect of a baby. Me, I am not so sure.


And on a personal level, I know for a fact that my great grandmother had my grandfather when she was 43, back in the day when IVF [in vitro fertilization]wasn't done (and even if it was, she wouldn't have had the money to pay for it).

And as I stated on a different thread, my friend conceived her child naturally and gave birth when she was just shy of 44.

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.
