Doubted I'd be blessed at 45, she just smiled

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, February 26, 2008 | 0 comments

My OB [obstetrician] at my last annual visit, asked me what I was using for birth control. I answered "old eggs". She laughed, and said "well, I hope you won't mind if you get a surprise".

I told her that I doubted that I would be blessed again at 45 years old, and she just smiled.

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.
