I am 47, 8m pregnant with my 3rd child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, February 16, 2008 | 0 comments

I am currently 47 and 8 months pregnant with my third child. I had my first baby at 40, and the second at 44.

I feel no different physically than I did when I was 30 and so far, this has been my easiest pregnancy with no problems whatsoever.

I am sick and tired of judgemental people who feel they have a right to declare the "proper" age to have children.

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.
