Right time to have a baby?

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, September 06, 2017 | 0 comments

Image: Kayte Nunn with her daughters Josephine, 18 months and Charlotte, 7In an ideal world I would have had children younger, but that's just not the way it worked out. I definitely wasn't ready to be a mother in my twenties.

I met my husband, Andy, when I was 35 and we had our first baby when I was 37 years old, so we really didn't waste much time once we knew it was the way our relationship was heading.

We weren't married when we had our first daughter because we realized having a baby was something we needed to do sooner rather than later. I was very lucky that I had no trouble falling pregnant at that age.

We weren't in a position to have another baby straight away, and by the time I fell pregnant with my second daughter I was 43 years old. I was six weeks shy of my 44th birthday when she was born.

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.
