I am 45 & 18 w pregnant with my 4th

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, July 25, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 45 and 18 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. My others are 8, 13 and 16 years old. I have just finished up all of the major testing (amnio, etc) and everything is fine and normal.

This baby is very much a surprise and health issues all around are the biggest worry. I thought I was in pretty good shape but I have been knocked for a loop, although I am starting to feel a little better.

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.
