I am 45 & 8 weeks pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, October 28, 2011 | 1 comments

I am 45 and eight weeks pregnant. We were pretty stunned as I had just had liposuction two weeks before we found out I was pregnant.

I wanted to get rid of the last of the belly fat from my previous pregnancy. My daughter is 2 1/2. I had her one month before my 43rd birthday.

Before my daughter was conceived we were told by a Stanford Hospital fertility expert, Dr. Lynn Westfall, that our chances were not good because of my age and inability to conceive all throughout my thirties.

We were going to try everything, but before we started any of the treatments I ended pregnant with my daughter!

We can't even believe that I am accidentally pregnant again at 45. We're hoping everything works out.

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.
