This will be my first baby - at 45 years old.

I was five days late, and thought it was the onset of menopause. I was pretty upset about it.

I had an old pregnancy test, and got two lines on the results.

Well, I didn't have the instructions, so I wasn't sure if I was pregnant.

Found another test... it was positive, but expired.

Then I bought two more tests, they were both positive.

I have a doctor appointment on the sixth of next month, as I'm high risk.

I am concerned because I had a miscarriage when I was 40 years old, at 10 weeks.

I was just going to make an appointment for fertility testing, so I was pretty surprised when the tests came up positive.

I just can't bear thinking about another miscarriage.

My boyfriend isn't thrilled that I'm pregnant either.

I am trying to be positive, but I've only told my sister so far.

I told everyone last time, and it was really hard when I had the miscarriage.

I'm praying and hoping for the best.

I think this is my last chance.

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.
