I was pregnant at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, October 17, 2008 | 0 comments

When I first learned I was pregnant at age 45, I knew intellectually know that I should love and cherish this little life growing inside of me.

My daughter is now 5 years old (and I'm 51!). She's starting Kindergarten this fall. I feel a little bit like "Peter Pan"... Only I'm the Mommy who never grew up!

I get to relive all the fun things you get to do with little kids - things like going to the swimming pool, the zoo, the science museum, visiting MacDonald's with friends etc. In the process, I've realized that I'm NOT growing older.

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.
