45 in May & pregnant with my 1st

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, April 27, 2008 | 0 comments

I'm going to be 45 in May, and I'm pregnant with my first, with my own eggs.

So far so good, I'm almost out of the first trimester with no problems. It's definitely possible.

Even though the stats are low, they are not zero, which means that women our age are having children. -Yoi


I’m posting this in encouragement to myself and others over 40 still TTC [trying to conceive] ....

Here in Sweden, a much loved TV personality Tina Leijonberg is 15 weeks pregnant with her second child. She is 45 and her boyfriend is 31. She previously has a daughter who is 9.

And one of our well-known TV anchors at Channel 4, Anna Lindmarker, had her third child, a son, when she was 45.

Other Swedish celebrity moms who had their children late are : Annika Falkengren, the CEO for one of Sweden's largest banks SEB, who had her first child, a daughter, at 42.

Marita Ulvskog, top politician within the Social-democratic party, who had a son at 43 and Malou von Sivers, TV-journalist, who had her third child, a daughter, when she was 43. -- Ellen, 42 (43 this summer...) from Sweden


I'm not saying you are not in, but I'm definitely saying you are NOT out of the game.

Sheesh, my cousin, just last year turned up pregnant at 45, delivered a healthy baby boy at 46....


I feel the same way because I, too, am pregnant at a old age of 53


I am 45, turning 46 on April 28th, and am approximately 8 weeks pregnant. We'll see if this one 'sticks'.

I thought I was already swinging into menopause, and was not keeping track of my periods. I have no idea when the first day of my last period was, and am hesitating to go to the lab to get the beta tests done.

I am going to wait a few more weeks to see what happens with my 'old eggs' status - as the specialists have been telling me - my only options were egg donor or adoption, but I've gotten pregnant 3 times since then.

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.
