Currently 7m pregnant, natural conception at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, April 19, 2007 | 1 comments

I am 47 years old, my partner is 45, and I am currently 7 months pregnant from natural conception. I will be almost 48 when baby is born.

I have had at least 6 miscarriage starting from age 45, in the last 18 months all early ones but this one has stuck. I am having a little boy, I hope this gives encouragement to those trying to conceive.

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.

    Hi there
    I too am 47. I had 3 miscarriages around age 45. This one is the first one to take. It happened naturally and quite unexpectedly. I am due the end of September. How is it going for you?

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!)
