Never expected to get pregnant at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, May 18, 2008 | 0 comments

I never expected to get pregnant at 45. It was a gift from God and the last precious child my dear husband left me..

I don't regret having him one bit. To me he was a miracle, especially after not having another child for 19 years, because my youngest daughter was 19..

But the God Lord had other plans, and I am so happy for having him.


I'm almost done with the baby blanket for my crazy cousin Donna who (at 45 years of age!) had her 4th baby boy yesterday. Stevie Ray is his name, and he weighed in at a whopping 12 lbs 8 oz.

I am a second generation mother. You know what that means? I raised the first generation, (didn't learn anything) then had a baby at 45. I know nothing according to teenage energy leech.


I had triplets at 44 by C-section, ugh! Arthritis in my hips, and thoroughly exhausted!

They are awesome, though!


I know several other families which have done the same thing -- one of my mom's friends just had a baby at 45 with her new husband (she has two kids who were in their late teens at the time).

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.
