(((HUGS))) I'm so sorry that you are so stressed about your pregnancy (congratulations, btw). Just give yourself some time, it is a shock with all that you are going through, so you need some time to adjust. It helps to talk about it, we'll be here for you.

I hear ya! I'm the one that posted "scared to death" and am pregnant at 40 with three older kids. It has helped me so much to have others in similar situations to talk to. Keep in touch. We can go through this together.

Thank you! I think I'm going nuts for real... Now my husband left me on Friday and have not heard from him at all! I don't even know what to think I guess if he left is because god wanted that way right? Here I am pregnant with my 5th child and after 17 years I'm going to be a single mom :-( I feel lost and very sad and I don't have an idea what to do next but thank u for listening I really appreciate the support!

I'm sorry that your husband left, it's sad that he hasn't been in contact with because I'm assuming that means he hasn't been in contact with your kids either :( Maybe this baby will give you something positive to look forward to?
