Mom had her last when she was 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, June 21, 2008 | 0 comments

There are seven children in my family - Brigette, 27, Myself, 24, Dustin, 21, Gretchen, 17, Nathaniel, 15, Olivia, 11, and Zachary, 5.

Mom had her last when she was 45. According to her, it was her best and easiest pregnancy. Zachary was a full 1 1/2 pounds larger than the rest of us were (weighing in at 10 lbs. 4 oz.), and so her delivery was a bit more difficult than the others due to his size, but she sprung back from it faster than her few previous deliveries.

She also gained the least amount of weight, and felt the best she ever had. My mom is very disciplined in eating good, exercising, and taking care of herself. She is especially conscientious about such things while pregnant. I think this has helped to contribute her healthy pregnancy with Zachary.

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.
