I am 44 & nearly 8 weeks

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, November 15, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 44 and at nearly 8 weeks. Lost one at about this point not too long ago but didn't know it until about 12 weeks into it, with ultrasound (after spotting).

Had one "normal pregnancy" after the D&C and quickly pregnant again with nothing but Nature helping us. We just decided to let Nature do her thing. Even with the first loss that was still Nature's decision. It made it easier, in some ways, to cope.

I have an 18 year old college daughter, 16 year old son, 16 year old step daughter, and 14 year old step son. My husband and I decided it would be nice to have another child if we could. I am not sure what will happen this time around. Of course we both hope and pray that we will see our due date of 10/6, and be holding our healthy child.

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.
