I'm having a baby at 47

I'm having a baby at 47
At 47, Luisa Dillner has four children she adores – the eldest is 21 years old.

And now she's pregnant with a fifth child, the last thing she expected at her time of life.

First of all, my belt becomes tight.

My low-carb diet has been working a treat, so I am surprised and disappointed.

I recap how much I've eaten over the past week. Then I start going off alcohol.

In a big way, because alcohol now has an unpleasant, metallic taste.

My partner notices, as I can't help noticing, that I haven't had a period for a while.

Sweetly he puts an arm round me. "Maybe you're having an early menopause," he muses.  
"Don't worry, you'll be all right."

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.
