I got pregnant at 43

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, December 02, 2006 | 1 comments

I am currently 14 weeks pregnant. I got pregnant at 43 years 5 months, so it can certainly happen!

By the way, I was not on any meds or any interventions - all natural.

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.

    I’m so happy to hear you say you’re pregnant. Bless you. You’re giving me hope and I thank you. I am 43 1/2 and have been trying for 6 months with no success. I have a 3 y/o and so badly want to have another. Unfortunately you hear so many discouraging statistics and feel like it is impossible.

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
