Just over 16 weeks at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, September 11, 2008 | 0 comments

Just joining in myself at 44 and just over 16 weeks. I know I am not eating as well as I could be, nor exercising as much as I should. This looks like a great site to give me some structure and motivation.

I just told my family recently (except my sister who has known for a while). They are all happy for us (my first, my husband's third) - I am sure a bit worried - but so far all looks good.

Have not yet told the rest of the world - am hoping to get the all clear from my amnio [amniocentesis] within the next few days and then I'll start telling people.

Good luck and healthy pregnancies to all of you. - Lisa


I'm 44, about 6 weeks pregnant. I also have a daughter 23 years old, a son 22 years old, from my former marriage. I also have a daughter 6 years old, my little angel in heaven, and a son 4 years old.

I'm waiting for my first prenatal visit on APRIL 5TH. I'm going to ask for an ultrasound as soon as possible! I know I'll be high risk, as I was with my son.

As far as the special test go, I refused the amino [amniocentesis]. I think it's too risky! I also would like to wish everyone good luck! My due date is 11-11-06

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.
