Delivering next week at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, April 03, 2007 | 0 comments

Delivering next week age 44: I have a 20 year old and a 17 year old. It's been a long time since I've had children. I had my tubes tied and did IVF [In Vitro Fertilization]. I was able to conceive with my own egg, however the last attempt I only had 4 eggs transferred at day three with ICSI [Intracytoplasmic sperm injection] that took.

Update: I had a bleeding episode on Monday morning and has to go to the emergency room and had a c-section Monday. Alyna weighed 3 lbs 11 oz at birth and currently weighs 3lbs 6 ozs. She is beautiful.

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.
