I am 47, pregnant

Thank you, thank you, thank you… Inspiration received…

I am 47, pregnant, 16 and 17 year old daughters are thrilled, but a bit nervous for me…

The father wants no part of this, he just told me and I have been reeling for a few days… but your story touched me, offers hope and stability… Thank you.
One of my best friends just told me she is 13 weeks pregnant with her ninth child. She is 45, and will be 46 when the baby is born. Her youngest is 6! She thought she was "done!" - Tammy

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.

    It doesn't matter if the father isn't interested, he has a LEGAL RIGHT to support his child. Get a good lawyer.

    He should feel grateful.

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
