I am now 18w pregnant at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, June 06, 2007 | 0 comments

Just to let you know I am now 18 weeks pregnant. I have lots of aches and pains, but not surprising as I had a few back problems before I got pregnant. Plus I am HUGE, next scan is 20 weeks on the 12th.

Keep all fingers crossed for me. I need all the luck I can get at my age (47). This is my miracle baby, my last try. I am really trying my best to keep myself well and healthy. Baby dust to all.

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.
