Had my 10th baby at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, August 23, 2010 | 1 comments

I had my 10th baby at age 45. When my husband was called up for the war, I delivered at an army hospital. They tested me for everything and I never had soooo many papers to fill out saying I was informed about all the things that could go wrong.

I am happy with all my children and my last baby is a fine healthy girl. Having this baby made me healthier, because some new little person now depended on me. After the birth, I lost weight and feel years younger.

You'll never know unless you're open to the new experience what life will bring you. Don't let anyone scare you because you're older and wiser than you were 20 years ago.

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.

    Your story is inspirational. I am 45, and I am 10 weeks along. I have one daughter who was delivered by c section when I was 33. I am very afraid! I had an ultrasound and heard the heart beat at 6 weeks. Reality set in. I have a c section scheduled for the last week of March. THanks for your positive post. I am undecided on the testing. My husband and I are pro-life.

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!)
