Delighted at falling pregnant after 22 yearsAs Paula Lackie strokes her swollen tummy she admits she is counting the days until the arrival of her unborn baby.

In her 20's, tests revealed she could never fall pregnant naturally.

Rather than giving up on her dream of becoming a mum, Paula and her then husband adopted two children they adore.

For most of the next two decades she admits she secretly hoped doctors had got her diagnosis wrong, only to be left shattered each month when she failed to conceive.

And only after finally giving up hope of ever falling pregnant naturally did she discover she was expecting.

Paula, 43, of Haddington, East Lothian, said: “At first I thought I must be starting the menopause."

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.
