Late arrivals well worth waiting for

Image: 40 something mum Alison Darlow with her daughter 18 month old BethDawn Morris, 44, from Ilkley, says she was very surprised to find herself pregnant at 42.

I was gobsmacked, she says. I didn't meet my partner, who's quite a bit younger than me until I was 41 and it really didn't occur to me that I could become pregnant. I thought I was going in to the menopause.

I think I have more patience, and I also appreciate and make quality time to spend with my daughter, says Dawn.

I loved my job as a registered nurse before I had Lilly and didn't think twice about working overtime. Since having Lilly, although I enjoy my two days at work, at the back of my mind I'm wondering if I'm missing an important milestone in Lilly's life.

I no longer do overtime. As soon as my shift is over I'm off like a shot I can't wait to see Lilly and hear what sort of day she's had.

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.
