Married 25y, out of the blue turns up pregnant at 47

When I was expecting my 4 year old, there was a 47 year old woman going to the same perinatalist that I was.

Her story: Married 25 years and in all that time never got pregnant, assumed infertility, one day ... bang, out of the blue - turns up pregnant. Total shock to her and her husband.

She delivered at 36 weeks, and although the pregnancy was bedrested due to placenta previa, mother and baby were just fine.

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.
