I am 46 years old - my pregnancy was confirmed on December 18th.

God willing, I will be 47 years old when this little miracle arrives at the end of August.

I'm really excited and nervous at the same time, just trying to be really grounded and realistic.

I'll go for the first ultrasound on January 3rd.

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.

  1. I had my first (and only) baby at 47. All went well, and my son is now a beautiful six-year-old. Good luck and enjoy the pregnancy!
