I just found out I am pregnant at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, March 29, 2010 | 1 comments

I had used Fertile Thoughts about 4 years ago as my DH and I were trying to have a child. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. But my husband and I started trying to have our own child about 8 years ago.

After 6 years and 6 miscarriages, I couldn’t handle the emotional roller coaster any longer and we gave up trying to have a child. I finally got to the acceptance that we weren’t going to have any more children after 2 years.

I just turned 45 two weeks ago and I just found out that I am pregnant last week. I am extremely nervous as we typically lose the baby around 6 to 8 weeks. I have already been to the RE and have started preventative measures to hold on to this one.

My first beta was 343 and the second was 676. So, those numbers sound pretty good for my 33rd day. But I am understandably skeptical that this will work. The odds are not in our favour because of my age and history.

Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. We aren’t ready to share the news with any family or friends until we get some more positive news. Thanks!

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.

    are you using progesterone ? I know someone who was prone to miscarriages and used it and it helped - ask your doctor
