I am 43. I recently took a pregancy test. "Positive"! I have very mixed feelings right now. I will be going to the doctors of course to confirm. I haven't told my husband yet. Neither one of us wanted anymore kids. Between the two of us we have six kids, four grandkids. We were making our plans for when the 16 year old graduates. Now, a change in plans. Just really torn and confused.

Awe, it is confusing and completely changes everything but you have survived six kids! Lol you can do it mama! I hope he will be excited when you tell him because it's just one more in your family to love, I bet your kids will be excited too. And your grand children will have a little buddy to play with too :)
In all seriousness though I hope you have a happy pregnancy if you decide to keep it and it comes out healthy :) (because chances of health risks are increased) but everyones different. This is so exciting! I'm sure there's tons of older couples that have had babies or even started a family in their late 30's-40's. I think you'll be fine, do what you think is right.
