Help! Newly pg at 42 with a 3 and a 7 year old. Want to be happy but freaking out.

My husband and I have always been on the fence about a third child. We recently came to the conclusion that we would have a third if we were younger and richer, but our family just seems complete now. My business is finally picking up, my youngest is out of diapers, and I actually have more time to myself.

I had a miscarriage a year and a half ago, and felt really sad afterwards, so I never started birth control afterwards figuring at my age it probably wouldn't happen, but I'd let fate take over.

Now that I've found myself pregnant again I feel panicked. So many risks at my age. How will I ever afford to work? I know that a part of me wants this, but I just can't see it right now. My husband and I agree that termination is not an option, unless there are significant birth defects.

Anyone with positive stories to share? Not only feeling scared and freaked out, also a bit stupid. Oy. I try to trust that whatever happens is meant to be.
