I'm the only one excited

Hi. Looks like I haven't visited these forums since 2012!! I joined because I am excited to find myself pregnant with my 6th at 39 but am not ready for others to know,
My oldest is 18 and my youngest 5. I had a baby every 3 years in between them (just seems to be how my body works). But have stayed mostly single the last 5 years so no baby after the 5 year old. I was starting to get ok with the idea that I would have no more babies of my own.
Then I met my "soul mate" for lack of a better term and he has no kids and really wanted one. Of course he didn't have to ask me twice...I was hoping to wait a few more months but once we decided we wanted a baby we got very careless.Of course I thought at my age it would probably be hard to get pregnant anyways.
Unfortunately he and I are the only ones who will be happy about this. My kids have told me for years they don't want another sibling :( (My 8 year olds behavior is hard on everyone.) My sister has suffered from infertility and is jealous that I have so many and stated in a conversation after I found out "If you have another one I will lose it"
So I guess my selfishness is hurting people all around but I still want to celebrate this new life so I hope you will celebrate with me. My guess date is 1/21 which means I will likely give birth in early February and I am planning my second UC.

Awww, mama! I think maybe we share a due date! Your kids will be happy once the baby is a super fun toddler. My husband has a son from his first marriage and he was THE BIGGEST BRAT after Felix (my 22 month old) was born. It was so hard and is very challenging but well worth it for my husband and me. I will celebrate the crap out of you! I LOVE pregnant ladies. :) I also fell in love with my previous due date club and a few of us are even hitting the beach and meeting in person this summer! It's like a first date with an internet boyfriend. LOL. Did you have good prior births? How did you meet your soul mate??
Thanks! I loved my due date club with my last one although we never met in person. Funny enough my soul mate was first my internet boyfriend:laugh: I love everything about pregnancy and birth for myself and others. I loved watching the meant to scare us videos of birth they showed us in highschool..lol.
My first 4 were born in the hospital only because I thought that was my only option. When my 4ths birth plan was ruined just because the OB that showed up felt insulted by it I vowed no more hospital births unless medically necessary and had my 5th unassisted at home. And if all goes well that is the plan for this one. Amazingly when I mentioned it to my boyfriend he didn't bat an eyelash.
