An acquaintance just delivered her son at 48

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, January 27, 2007 | 1 comments

My best friend just emailed me a picture of an acquaintance of hers, just delivered her son at 48 -got pregnant at 48, so she may be 49 by now. I emailed her and am hoping for a response, so keep on going. I am newly 49 and not quitting.

Also read posts that stated women getting pregnant in Honduras up to 60 years old, and my acupuncture just told me of cases into their 70's!!! Yikes, that is too much but you get my drift.

She believes it is Tai Chi and QiGong and diet changes for the Chinese, and I am waiting for feedback on the Hondurans, as I know the hubby of the gal who said this. He is from Honduras. Do not give up!!

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 48, no kids and 4 miscarriages. Just found out I am pregnant (naturallly)!!!!

    Unfortunately, I thought I was beginning menopause so I didn't even think my missed period could be due to pregnancy. Worse, I went in for a long overdue mammogram last Monday. Standing with my tender-feeling breast sandwiched in the machine, the tech asked the routine question: "could you be pregant?" "No," I said and the xray went off and suddenly I thought "Well, I could be pregnant....." Went home and did a pregnancy test and sure enuf....

    So here I've been holiday drinking like a fish and just had a mammo. Could it be any worse?

    Except I'm pregnant! THere is no containing the wonderment or joy. I know I have a very long road to hoe, but I also have a deep sense that this is out of my hands and I'm going to try really hard this time not to worry--which really does accomplish NOTHING.

    The thought of my sweet husband's baby growing inside me is beyond joy!!!

    Thoughts from anyone on maintaining composure or the whole testing thing?
