My daughter doesn't even know yet..I don't want to steal her happiness..It was already pretty hard when we found out. I was a lot more understanding then my husband...a lot more!!!Our goal was for her to go to college and finish her schooling. She can still do it but it will definitely be hard however, we are a good support system.. As soon as I get my husband over the hurdle of our baby girl, then this happens to us.. AT 40

I also am a mother of 5. I will be 43 next month. I just found out that I am pregnant. I am not even sure how far along I am as I quit tracking MY LMP other than to notice that it comes and goes. Mine are 22,18,13,11,8. we are thinking though that I am around 12 weeks at least.I see the Dr. for an ultrasound on july 20th so will know more then. Things always work out so just have a little faith and trust and know that there are others going though similar situations with you. Congratulations on the new addition to your family.

Well,Well,Well...My daughter has found out about 2wks ago. She didn't even talk to her dad and I for a week. She's trying to come around now. She thinks we took her shine away. Of course dad had some words to stay..when you're 18 barely finished school, no college in the future, and mom and dad have to support you because of no job..sweetie there is no shine. We love her and will of course stick by her but we have to let her know being the only girl out of 4boyz we really had high hopes for her after high school.
