Great photos seeing all these baby photos makes me very clucky, but at 46 and with a 4 year old and a 1 year old I think I will try and control the urge..

Just wish I had started this baby making earlier and had known my husband earlier... - Cathy (46) daughters 4 years & 18 months

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.

    I gave birth to my third daughter at the age of 45 on April 10, 2009. She is perfectly healthy, and my doctors also thought that I was going through menopause. I found out Christmas day that I was almost 6 months pregnant. I also have a 7 year old and a 9 year old daughter.

    Thank you for sharing your story,Kathy...I need to hear positive stories like these now that I just found out I'm abt. 6 weeks pregnant at 44!I have 2 boys,aged 17 and 9, and this pregnancy is a total surprise! Although I hear both positive and negative comments from friends and family abt. having a baby at this age, the negatives kind of bring me down.Hearing stories like yours make me feel better. Thanks!Carina
