Not alone in wanting a child at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, March 21, 2010 | 1 comments

You are not alone in wanting a child at 45! I am 44 years old. Will be 45 in December.

I just today got a positive pregnancy test. We were trying for a little over a year, and I thought the factory was shutting down...

I had my last child (my 5th) at 42.

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.

  1. So reassuring to read this! I also had my last child at 42 (three weeks before my 43rd birthday)and very much want to give him a litle brother or sister.

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!)
