Found out I’m pregnant at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, April 14, 2008 | 0 comments

I had 2 miscarriages, only the last one was On New Year's Eve. Ya. what a way to break open a new year.

Anyway I was 45 on that one, well I was so depressed, and tried to get it out of my head on having another baby.

Well, years go by, and I found out that I’m pregnant at 47? Scared and hoping I don’t lose this one.

No insurance yet, I have a year to get some, and I’m feeling some light ackyness in the lower abdomen, close to the bikini line. Is this normal?

I’m told I’m about a little over 5 weeks.

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.
