At 48 I'm pregnant for the 1st time

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, July 29, 2008 | 1 comments

At 48 I am pregnant for the first time, without fertility treatments. I had 2 donor implants that didn't work when I was 46 and 47, and stopped all treatments earlier this year.

Got pregnant on my honeymoon, isn't that perfect? It's the first marriage for both of us..

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.
