I will be 44 when baby arrives

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, December 20, 2007 | 0 comments

I am 21 weeks with my 4th child, and will be 44 when he arrives in Sept. My daughter was born when I was 42, and she was a healthy 9 lb 4 ozs. My first son was born when I was 30, and the second son at 32.

All 3 are very healthy, and am quite sure the next one will be too. (He's already measuring like he will outweigh the girl!) I didn’t have an amnio with the little girl, and chose not to this time either because all blood work and ultrasounds showed everything was normal, so the High-Risk specialist says there is no need to see him again and I can continue with my regular OB.

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.
