20w pregnant - natural pregnancy at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, July 22, 2010 | 0 comments

I am 45 years old and I am 20 weeks pregnant from a natural pregnancy. I was surprised by this pregnancy since I had failed IVFs, IUIs and numerous miscarriages from natural pregnancies.

After all of my misfortune trying to conceive with my own eggs, I did a donor egg cycle and became pregnant. I have a beautiful baby close to a year old from my donor cycle. My baby is the joy of my life and could not be more my own. I resisted donor egg for so long and it turned out to be the greatest gift that I have ever received.

When I became pregnant naturally I was terrified and certain that I would miscarry yet again. I had a CVS done and was shocked when it came back normal. I will be keeping everything crossed until this baby is born even though it is looking good.

I will be 46 years old when I deliver. This new baby that is on the way is another gift and one that I am still quite in shock about receiving!

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.
