Mush Brained Ramblings

Mush Brained RamblingsI had been told I'd never have children, I'd had two miscarriages and was 47 years old when something that never happens happened. I became pregnant through IVF, the first time.

I was told by so many people that due to my age the pregnancy was unlikely to succeed ... and I found writing about all the hard times, my fears, my joys and my frustrations helped ... that's how the blog came to be.

The pregnancy nearly didn't succeed even right at the end when The Spaniard (as my small unborn person was known as the IVF happened in Spain) stopped moving inside me, then my heart started to misbehave and we both had to be constantly monitored. In early January we proved all the doubters wrong and my beautiful Hope was born ...

Mush Brained Ramblings - The meanderings of a geriatric first time mother who, at 47, become a crazy pregnant person but is now blissfully and besottedly entranced with her baby daughter. Ramblings range from margaritas to traveling with baby paraphernalia and breast feeding.

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.
