My cousin had her 4th--unplanned--at 48

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, June 03, 2008 | 0 comments

I miscarried about a year and a half ago and just found out I'm pregnant (at 43 and 3 months).

My cousin by marriage just had her 4th child -- unplanned -- at 48. He's very healthy.

And the mother of a dear friend of mine had her 7th at 49, also unplanned and very healthy (now 20-something! and a grad of UC Berkeley).

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.
