She is now 47, TTC with baby #4

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, September 26, 2008 | 0 comments

My sister had her first child at 41, her third child easily at age 45 without ANY PROBLEM. Her doctor told her...she can "keep going" if she wants.

She plans to have to have three more and "will keep going".... into her fifties. She is now at age 47, TTC [trying to conceive] with baby number 4. - Kathy


Believe me, we're out here! I'm 47, and am having my first. I'm about 4 weeks along right now, and am excited and worried at the same time. I'm just trying to take care of myself and relax!

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.
