I am 46 & found myself pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, October 31, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 46 and found myself pregnant late September. I had years of infertility, one ovary and now an adopted 17 year old and an 8 year old conceived via AI [Artificial Insemination].

I had very mixed feelings. I saw my OB/gyn who said I had a 50% chance of a miscarriage and odds of birth defects very high. Still, I secretly became excited, and resolved that one way or another I would work it out.

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.
