I will deliver this baby 2w before my 48th birthday

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, July 21, 2007 | 2 comments

I am 47 1/2 now and will deliver this baby 2 weeks before my 48th birthday. So I guess nothing is impossible. My husband and I lie in bed each night, stunned that after 20 months of seriously TTC, we backed off - and then I got pregnant.

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.

  1. I'm 48 and feeling very sick the last few days, very fatique, nause, and headache. My husband and I have been counting the days till his son is on his own. So we are not wanting a baby right now. not sure how I feel about being pregnacy.

  2. The sewing lady - what an unexpected surprise! To find yourself pregnant, just when you thought your child-rearing days were over.

    I hope you find comfort and peace in the coming days.
