I am 44 and pregnant with our first baby. My husband is 47.

I was pregnant before, but miscarried at week 9 due to a blighted ovum.

Less than 2 months later God smiled on us and we are pregnant again... which is a miracle, considering it took us a year and a half to conceive the first time.

I am now at 10 weeks and saw the baby on ultrasound today. I am happy to report that he or she is progressing nicely, and has a good strong heartbeat.

My husband already has a 19 year old daughter from his first marriage so he is kind of hoping for a boy, although we will feel blessed and thankful whatever the sex of the baby.

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.
