Friend was 45 when she gave birth to #6

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, August 24, 2008 | 0 comments

Another mom I cared for, who is a friend of mine, was 45 when she gave birth to number six also. She had a number of miscarriages prior to her last pregnancy, with no history of earlier miscarriages.

Her husband had had a vasectomy which had been reversed as they decided they wanted one more baby! The miscarriages began occurring after the reversal, and it took about 3 years before she was able to conceive and carry to term.

She felt pretty tired and run down in the last pregnancy, and mostly scared of losing the baby, but the birth and postpartum was uncomplicated.

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.
