8m pregnant with her 2nd & she is 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, April 16, 2008 | 0 comments

This past Sunday, while shopping at WalMart, I ran into a girl whom I also went to high school with. She was 8 months pregnant with her second baby, and she is 47....

We chatted a few minutes, and I found that she had a son who was 5 years old, and was due in 4 weeks with this one.

There is hope everywhere.... I think we all need to hear the good more so than the bad that society and the medical profession tends to throw at us.


Yes I was the same age, 44 when conceived, and 45 when my second
arrived. Other than some blood pressure problems, a uneventful reasonably natural birth and pregnancy.

Now we are actively preventing a reoccurrence. We consider ourselves to be very lucky people for it to happen so easily..

My mom was 43 when she became pregnant with my youngest brother, of course she was already beginning menopause, she had not had her period for several months, so when she got pregnant she didn’t even know it.


I'm 46, and expecting my fourth child on May 2nd. I conceived with no
medical intervention
although I did miscarry immediately prior to
conceiving this child.

My c-section is scheduled for 5 weeks from today. I'm ready. It's been a fairly easy pregnancy but I'm ready for it to be over. My back is starting to ache a bit.

I turned 46 a couple of weeks ago, so I guess if an occasionally achy
back is the only complaint I've got, then I'm doing OK.

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.
