Pregnant with 1st at 44

Photo credit: loserladyI'm 44 on September 6th and found out last Wednesday that I'm pregnant with my first baby. Baby is due May 3/07 according to internet.

First Doctor's appointment is on September 20th. I'm a little afraid due to all the statistics, but I believe God gave us this blessing and I'm going to stay positive.

I was glad to find a place for my age to post where God is glorified. Hubby and I got married last year. He has a 19 year old daughter having her first baby in December!

This is my first marriage and first pregnancy.

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.
