A new mom of twins & 50ish

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, March 18, 2008 | 0 comments

I am a new mom of twins and 50ish - anyone with younger babies here?


I think a lot of women after having the Novasure procedure done also think, incorrectly, that they won't need birth control anymore.

My doctor did two of us the day she did mine, and told me a few months later when I went in for a check up that the other woman was pregnant, at the age of 47. I guess she figured she was covered.


I just found out a gal I know, haven't seen for years, is prego at 46. So far everything is great! She's about 15 weeks. Surprise for them, but sure gave me hope! - Samantha


Hi all, I just joined your site because I do not know anyone else personally in my shoes! I am 43, well almost 44.

I just found out that I am five weeks pregnant. I have two children 14 and 12. I am engaged to be married. I want to be excited, but this wasn't exactly what we had planned. I am worried about the possible complications.

Also my fiance is 14 years older than I am. He is concerned about his age and taking care of the baby/us. I have very mixed emotions.


I am also 43, and will give birth about 2 weeks before my 44th. My fiance is 50, and also concerned about having a child at his age. He is a little afraid of being able to keep up, but I think he is really starting to warm up to the idea and starting to get over his fear.

I am 16 weeks pregnant, and have had my moments of apprehension, but honestly I think I am at an age where I am settled and centred enough to do the what’s best for my child. I also know that I can provide all the things I want for my child as well as doing the traveling that we want to do.

We will just have another little person to take with us. We may not be doing what the 20 something mothers and fathers will be doing with their kids, but I think being older we have a lot more to offer a child financially, spiritually, and emotionally. I know it seems like we may be getting too old for this, but I think we are mature enough to offer our children much more than younger mothers and fathers.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
