I know of two "change of life babies"

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 20, 2009 | 2 comments

I know of two people who were "change of life babies", my mother is one of them. She was the unexpected last of 9 children.

The other is the youngest of only 3, but there are 25 years between her and her siblings. When I first met their family at church I thought that her sister was her mother, and her mother her grandmother!

My mother is in her mid-50's and is barely going through menopause, I'm sure it was possible for her to get pregnant when she was 50.

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.
