Her oldest patient was 48

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, June 20, 2008 | 0 comments

My doctor was very nice, and didn't give me the "you know it will never happen at your age" speech - I pretty much said that for her. Told her we still didn't know, but I knew this was the last year to think about it.

Her oldest patient was 48 - thought she was in menopause... but she had had several kids years earlier, etc. etc. (found out that when I asked her that a couple years back)


I am 47 years, and found out on 5/6/07 that I am seven weeks pregnant naturally .. My husband is 50 years old, and I am a mother of four, ages of 23 to 5 years old. We are blessed.

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.
