I am 44 & pregnant with my 3rd

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, December 21, 2006 | 0 comments

I am 44. I have two kids - 5 and 3. I tried to conceive for nearly 10 years but could not - the doctors never found the reason. Using Momma Kath's herbs, I had 3 pregnancies in 3 years (I lost the one in the middle at 18 weeks). The only thing I was doing differently during those three years was taking Momma Kath's herbs and even though I was 38-40 at the time, my fertility was the highest that it had ever been.

Then - two weeks ago - my charts (I do paper and Fertility Friend) both showed an ovulation surge. My husband and I both laughed. I was sure it was a mistake, but we had BD [baby danced - sex] the night before the ovulation, without expecting it. Surprisingly, my temps stayed up.

This morning I woke up (12 dpo [days past ovulation]), and gagged twice while trying to brush my teeth. Then I threw up my vitamins. I went to CVS [store] and bought a pregnancy test. I know it isn't very sensitive, but I don't like shadow lines and question marks, so I avoid the sensitive tests.

Well - it was definitely, completely, unequivocally positive.

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.
