Had our 3rd girl last week at 51

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, July 23, 2008 | 0 comments

I am 51 and my husband is 51. We just had our third girl last week with a fairly short labor, and she is beautiful and healthy.

Our other two children are age 19 and 23, so this is like starting out all over. This baby was an initial surprise, but we were blessed with a healthy pregnancy.

I did decide to do the amnio to ease any worry, and was surprised that it wasn't painful either. Elise Marie is a blessing, and her sisters are thrilled. Fresh papaya helps with the indigestion.


Just passing through, and saw your post. I am pregnant with my 9th and am 45 years old. How many children do you have? I have 8.

How is this pregnancy for you? Are you finding it hard to stay awake? Well, hope all is going well. Glad for this site.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
