I am pregnant right now - I will turn 44 next month

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 30, 2007 | 0 comments

I am pregnant right now - yeah!!! I did have a scare last week but scan showed baby at 6 weeks 3 days with a heartbeat of 171. I go again Friday for a follow-up scan to make sure "viability" as they put it (I thought I was a week further but she says I probably ovulated late?). After 4 losses this year I am so hoping.

I know I will get lots of comments due to my age as I did with my last son at 42 - I will turn 44 next month. Even the doctor at my clinic keeps telling me how much greater risk, etc, etc, etc, I am at my "mature" age. So, I am just taking it day to day and so grateful for another opportunity.

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.
