I'm #7, arriving when mom was 55

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, July 25, 2009 | 1 comments

I can't relate to being an over 50 mom, but I'm the daughter of an over 50 mom. I'm #7, arriving when my mom was 55, and her second menopause baby!

Most of our nieces and nephews were older than us, except two were born within 8 months of me! My sisters said what was weird was being pregnant when Mom was, and she didn't go crazy over the grandkids as much as their in-laws did.

I was so lucky to have her for 40 years after my birth, my older kids loved her sooo much.

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.

    This story couldn't have been found at a bettr time. I am 55 and just found out I am pregnant for the 5th time (Totally by surprise) My oldest son is 26 and my youngest is 17 and wasn't sure if it could work until I read this poignant story. Now I know it can. Thank you for sharing. It has given me renewed hope in what I thought was going to be an impossible task!

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
