I'm almost 46, due in May

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, December 22, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm almost 46 and due May 10th. I had my last baby when I was 24, he's 21 years old and my first baby is 26! I had all the regular blood tests and ultrasound testing, but had already decided to forgo the amnio, no matter what the results of my other tests.

According to my doctors, everything is just fine. I am termed high risk, but have had no problems beyond the morning sickness. So for me, being high risk means I get to see the baby more often since I have an ultrasound every 4/-6 weeks to check on his growth.

I can't say I'm not nervous or anxious sometimes, but mostly I am trying to enjoy this. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and God never gives us more than we can handle.

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.
