My 44y friend was carrying a precious 1m old baby

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, February 07, 2007 | 0 comments

I just had a similar experience. I ran into an old friend this past weekend at an outdoor jazz concert (we can do that in late October in Florida). Anyway, my friend was carrying a bundle all wrapped up -- a precious one-month old baby.

She laughed and said one weekend she and her husband had a weekend fling when they were momentarily reunited (they aren't separated marriage-wise, but job-wise -- they work in different states right now; it's this economy, you know) and her baby girl was the result.

She said for awhile she thought she was approaching menopause and then figured out she was pregnant. She's about my age - 44. She was doing nothing to conceive. It wasn't even on her radar.

Sometimes (perhaps all the time) it's about luck. - Jennifer

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.
