I am 45y & this is my second baby into my 40's

I am 45 yrs. old and this is my second baby into my 40's. At 15 weeks I went for an amnio when the doctor ruptured my membranes. For the next 5 months I would stay in bed.

Of course ruptured membranes means you will most likely loose the pregnancy or if pregnancy survives baby will not due to undeveloped lungs from too much pressure due to low fluid.

I had severe low fluid the entire pregnancy. At 23 weeks until 35 weeks when he was born I was hospitalised and managed. He was born at 35.1 weeks by elective c-section - perfectly healthy.

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.
