I'm 44 & have a 7m old son

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, November 07, 2007 | 0 comments

Just decided I'd give you some positives. I'm 44 and have a 7 month old son, a 3 year old son, a 4 year old son and a 6 year old daughter.

I also was pregnant 3 additional times (between the birth of the 3 year old and my most recent addition) but lost them due to miscarriage (all flukes, at different stages of development).

All children were conceived on the first or second attempt; all pregnancies were easy without complication; all births also without complication.

The risks are so overstated. Yes they exist and yes they are greater than at a younger age, but the increase is not dramatic and the odds are still very much in your favour of having a baby that is happy, healthy and wise!

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.
