Will turn 46 within weeks of baby’s birth

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, February 20, 2009 | 0 comments

I am pregnant at 45 - will turn 46 within weeks of the baby’s birth if all goes as planned. We definitely did not plan to have any more children. (I have 4, 21 year old twin boys from 1st marriage, 8 and almost 6 year old girls with my forever husband)

My husband had a vasectomy but never went back to be sure the sperm count was really zero... it was not.

Turns out at 45, I am now 23 weeks pregnant with my 48 year old husband who will turn the everlasting 49 within a month of the baby boy's birth. Took a long time to get used to the idea of another child, but now we are looking forward to him.

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.
