Hi everyone. So glad I found this board. I'm 41 and a mom of 5, ranging from ages 4 to 21. Got a big surprise yesterday when I realized I was kind of late, and had that feeling I've had at least 5 times now. So took a test, and wow, I'm pregnant. Not planning it, even preventing it, and here I am. I'm worried what people will think, what my kids will think, and how I'm going to take care of a sixth kid. It's especially surprising because to get pregnant with my 5th child 5 years ago, I went through a year of infertility treatments and finally had her via IVF!
Crazy, and I'm still in shock, plus worried about all the stats I've been reading about women over 40 and pregnancy.
So hi everyone, and maybe someday soon I'll actually believe I'm pregnant.
