I got pregnant again – this time at 44

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

One miscarriage, several rounds of Clomid, and another plea to heaven later, I got pregnant again – this time at 44.

Everybody including my reproductive endocrinologist was shocked since fewer than one percent of all women between the ages of 40 to 44 have babies.

When the “amnio” revealed a girl, I was ecstatic. Not only had I defied the damning statistics, I lucked out on the gender.

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.
