I am 45, having my 4th child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, December 21, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 45, having my 4th child... I was 35 when I had my 3rd child... During my 3rd pregnancy I tried out at 5 months for women’s professional baseball & made it. Three months after the baby I was in spring training. I now just finished a season in the men’s baseball league in September, and I'm due in June.

Baby is fine 2x above a normal baby's arm & leg length, very active and healthy. Of course I'm 5'-11". Right now I'm coaching Fast pitch softball helping out with my son's baseball and practicing (only) baseball... Just finished coaching kids basketball, and I have to be in shape by November for the Women’s baseball World Series. Plus organizing girls baseball and I work 40 hours a week.

Whew I feel great! And healthy... No problems. The key is stay active, healthy, don't smoke... Social drink now & then, and plenty of exercise... Drink a lot of water. You're only as old as you let yourself be!

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.
