Hands on Belly - Stock Photo Credit: bikindemI am 44 now, was 43 when I found out I was pregnant and I am due in 7 weeks. Things are good, and have had no problems.

Funny thing is I had horrible pregnancy with my last three, placenta previa, preclampsia. Nothing this time, he is small, but all my kids were.

I was like you, the doctors freaked me out. I had my ultrasounds, and did what they told me. I did not get a amnio, and things are great.

I am 32 weeks now, and have a very active baby. Don’t worry, they say bad things but they told me the chances of Down Syndrome was 1-10. Well, my test came back 1-1000, I have eggs of a 33 year old.

Look at all the women now that have babies that are older and are fine.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Hannah's Hope: Seeking God's Heart in the Midst of Infertility, Miscarriage, and Adoption Loss, by Jennifer Saake. Published: NavPress (February 1, 2014)-Hannah's Hope: Seeking God's Heart in the Midst of Infertility, Miscarriage, and Adoption Loss
by Jennifer Saake
-- Hannah's heart beat with a mother's love long before she was blessed with a child.

Through the years of waiting and longing, her gentle heart was nearly crushed under the weight of grief.

You can meet Hannah in the pages of 1 Samuel, chapters 1 and 2.

The Bible says she was "barren," and we know she suffered heartache, anguish, and grief because of her empty arms. Perhaps you do too.  

Hannah's Hope is for all who long for a child yet to be conceived, grieve for a baby too soon passed from the womb, or have lived through the no-man's-land of failed adoption.

It is intended as a guide to assist you in making wise decisions as you struggle through your grief. And by the end of the journey, God may surprise you by the ways He uses to answer your heart's cry.

Compassionately written by a woman who knows well these painful struggles, Hannah's Hope will direct you to the Source of strength, whose name is "the God of all comfort."

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.
