44 and Pregnant

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I think it's finally sinking in. I have four children ages 16g, 19b, 20b, and 26 b. This was a total surprise. First time my partner and I decided to be 'intimate' yes, we wanted to wait, and bam. I am approaching 6 weeks. Ultrasound tomorrow.

Abortion is not an option for me personally. I just feel so old. I own my own business (a tea house) and was making plans for my finally childless future lol. I guess I am destined to be a mom.

My fiancé has 5 kids, I have 4. That makes ten together including new baby.

I realize the miscarriage rate it higher among older moms, but I can't allow myself to go there. We have told all of our kids, except his youngest. They are all so supportive.

Feels so strange starting over again. I think I may be the oldest mom to be here.
