I was 47 when doctor said I was pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, June 08, 2008 | 1 comments

I found this site today, and I've been having a ball finding all the boards that are in sync with my life! I was 47 when the doctor told me that the "change" I thought I was going thru was in reality... pregnancy!

I'm now 60 years young, and I have a bright, beautiful, sassy teen under foot. I definitely take all things more in stride than I did with my previous children (the eldest is 33.)

In addition, I now have my 2 toddler grandkids living here. I feel like I'm in a revolving door, and can't get out!


I'm Susan, and new to chatting online but I just wanted to share something about being a mom over 40 - It is fabulous except that I myself was getting self conscious about looking older - my kids are 5 and 8 and I'm 49

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.

    Is It Natural For Pregnant Women To Have Anemia During Pregnancy?

    Why do most women have an anemia? Most of the mothers are affected with iron deficiency anemia due to excessive loss of blood during giving birth, menstruation and other factors like miscarriage, bleeding from the stomach, or having cancer or a parasite like hookworm. Menstrual bleeding and giving birth may reduce the iron stored in the body.
