Twins Strolling - Stock Photo credit: jzlomekI am 44 and due in March (twins) These are our first.

I think I am older and wiser and more ready than I've ever been! We declined all the tests because no matter the outcome we will keep them.

We are just so happy, I try not to let other people's comments bother me, most people are very supportive and happy for us.

So far the pregnancy has been going great with no problems! Think positive and stay healthy.

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.
