Gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, June 25, 2008 | 0 comments

Then in March of 2005 I found out I was pregnant again, and gave birth on 12 Dec 2005 to a gorgeous baby boy. So don't give up hope! I am 44.

I also think it is sooo great to see all you moms starting over again. A lot of our friends think we were crazy for having another at our age, but we think of it as a blessing. Everything happens for a reason.


I'm expecting my third child at 46 also! My children are 13 and 16. I'm scared too, excited, all of that. I think if we make it to 12 weeks we are "out of the woods" for the most part?

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.
