Rosie Pang has always been a determined woman, overcoming difficulties at every turn. Raised by an alcoholic and gambling mother, she ended up sad and unhappy marriage at just 19 years old.

After her first marriage ended in 2005, following an incident of domestic violence, Birmingham-born Rosie enrolled in university with the dream of becoming a teacher.

During the time she raised 5 children kids and work part-time on weekends to keep up with mortgage payments.

At the time of her graduation in 2008, Rosie didn’t even have enough money to attend her own ceremony. However, the university recognized her dedication by honoring her with the First Primary Student of the Year award, sending her £50.

In the years following the divorce, Rosie decided to move on with her personal life, starting a relationship with a man who was “desperate” to have children with her. Sadly, there are challenges ahead.

Talking to Mirror, “I attended an IVF clinic with him and was told I only produced five eggs and my odds of conception were very low because 80 per cent of those eggs wouldn’t be good enough,” Rosie said. .

Meanwhile, Rosie also checked her fallopian tubes, and the doctors discovered that one was blocked. Although they were able to unlock there and then, there is still more heartache in the store.

Rosie continued: “We broke up because I couldn’t conceive and I didn’t want to do IVF because it was expensive and there was no guarantee. I already had five healthy children and didn’t want to go through it all. At that time, I was able to have a baby for him, but it didn’t work out.”

In the summer of 2017, Rosie rekindled her romance with a new partner, and – the following year – startled people with some shocking news.

Rosie – who didn’t feel the need for contraception for more than 5 years at this point – discovered herself pregnant in April 2018. She is 44 years old, and understandably the news comes as a bit of a surprise.

Recalling the moment of the news, Rosie said: “That morning, I wasn’t feeling well and had a headache so my daughter suggested I go for a perimenopause test and that’s when I found out. I couldn’t believe it. ok tell my kids WhatsApp and no one believes me!! Part of me thinks I can do this, but another part thinks ‘I’m too old’. I’m 44 years old! “

Rosie chooses not to tell anyone at work about her pregnancy, and continued her teaching as usual. However, after hitting the 9-week mark, she had morning sickness and dizziness, so she felt the need to confide in a colleague.

At this point, Rosie still doesn’t know what to do, wondering if she should or can even continue the pregnancy or have to terminate it. Her youngest son is about to turn 16 and she’s not sure she can take care of a small child again.

However, after she and her daughter saw a healthy fetus on an ultrasound, they both “cried and decided to proceed with the pregnancy”.

Rosie explains: “The midwives and doctors were both wonderful and really supportive as I am a geriatric mom. I hid in the corner while going to hospital appointments because of all the other moms. both are very young and I feel embarrassed but the midwives are really” lovely. My kids even threw me a surprise baby party and I cried because I’ve never had a surprise party before.”

Thankfully, it turned out to be the “easiest pregnancy” Rosie has ever had, with the busy mother commenting that, this time around, at least she “doesn’t have to take care of the little one and can go home to relax.” relax after work.”

She continued: “I enjoy watching my body change and feeling her move. I have something to look forward to – a miracle baby. My daughter has left her master’s degree at Oxford. early to help me. She drove me everywhere in the final stages and was present at the birth.”

Rosie said: “I’ve had five kids at 29 and I’ve coped, but one kid at 45 is tough. Even so, my kids are amazing. The only stigma that I get called tough if I’m with Leah and her sisters but I tend to joke.In the end, I gave birth to my first child at 20, then 21, 24, 26 and 29. I lost a child at the age of 22”.

Reflecting on her unexpected life turn, Rosie – who recently completed a master’s degree in education – says she “wouldn’t change anything”, and feels “so lucky” to have be a mother to young Leah.

Despite being called ‘the bad guy’ a lot, Rosie doesn’t mind one bit, believing that having Leah in her life will help her stay young.

She added: “I also think when I think I’m not stressed about anything and it just happens very naturally and having a positive mind is the key. I don’t have any plans right now because of life. life is very unpredictable.”
