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.

    What a coincidence! I am aso 45 years old and pregnant. My children are 16, 18 and 21 too! I'm 25 weeks along now, did you get pregnant naturally?

  2. Congrats on your pregnancy! What do your kids think of the coming baby?

    Was your pregnancy a surprise, or were you trying to get pregnant?

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
