I will be 46 when I am 4m pregnant

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

I am 45 years old and pregnant. I went to get my cholesterol checked and had not had a proper period, so my doctor suggested a pregnancy test. My doctor rang me to tell me the news at 07.30 in the morning.

I have a baby through egg donation who is 9 months old, and I had been infertile for years. I will be 46 years old when I am 4 months pregnant. My husband and I had had sex twice in the six months prior. I never thought it would happen, and we were not trying.

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.
