Baby born October, I will be 49 in May

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, June 11, 2008 | 0 comments

Hi Everyone - I haven't posted often here, but wanted to pop in and announce that our newest little son, Carter Clifton was born on October 17 (I was due October 19) weighing 8 lbs 7 oz., 22 inches long and perfectly healthy. He's a super baby - so calm and easy.

We have four others - aged 21 (boy), 16 (boy), 14 (girl), and 5 (girl). I will be 49 in May. The first three are from my previous marriage, our 5-year-old daughter is from this marriage. She was conceived after three consecutive early miscarriages. We have been trying ever since she was born (when I was 43) for one more.

This baby was conceived naturally. I did have an amnio [amniocentesis], and it was all clear. Labour was induced because he was showing some stress at term. Turns out the cord was around his neck. Labour was (relatively) easy, I did have an epidural. A week later, and I feel like a million bucks.

You CAN do it, ladies! Hang in there! Best of luck to all - Carol

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.
