I had my baby 2 days after my 45th birthday

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, June 14, 2008 | 0 comments

I miscarried early-on, at the age of 43, and had similar mixed feelings. I convinced myself that it was probably best that I lost the baby, since I already had two older children from my previous marriage.

But I knew I would probably never be pregnant again, and that made me feel disappointed and sad (although I was also partially relieved, thinking I was too old to go through it all again, etc.).

Then... I got pregnant again (not trying, just not NOT trying), and had a healthy little baby boy two days after my 45th birthday. Christopher is 2-1/2 now, and little (unborn) "Emily" is beautiful in my dreams.

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.
