I’m 44y & baby girl due in August

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, February 20, 2007 | 0 comments

Last Christmas I was rushed into casualty with pains in my side, and was told that I probably have a UTI. They asked me to bring a urine sample first thing following morning. After a few hours the Lab rang me at work telling me that I am pregnant! Well, Shocked isn’t the word! I’ve had my family of three boys age 20,18 and 16. I went home in a daze, my family was totally in shock. We sat in silence almost over dinner.

Anyway we started to get used to the idea. I had a CVS test done the results came back. Baby normal and it's a GIRL. I’m 19 weeks pregnant now, and suffering spotting and a little brown blood which is due to a low lying placenta. My family and I are now very happy and excited over this little miracle!! If it can happen to me, it can happen to any of you. I’m 44 years old and baby girl due August 2004.

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.
