Found out that I am pregnant at 42. I have a 19,15,6, and 4 year old. All girls . I am so scared to tell them that expecting again. My husband does not even want to tell his mom. I am now nine weeks. What do I do?

Well, you are not going to hide it forever. I suggest waiting till you are out of the first trimester, and own up. Also, if this was unplanned, and unwanted, please start using birth control.

Why are you scared to tell them? Being pregnant at 42 is not the end of the world and having 5 kids is not the end of the world. There are people that get pregnant even later then 42 yrs and people that have bigger families then 5 kids. I don't know you or your situation, so it is hard to advise you what to do. All I can say is if you feel you can't parent another child (for whatever reason) then look into adoption. If it is shock you feel right now and just need time to adjust to the idea.....allow yourself that time and then look at the positives. Then start working out the details. If you tell people in a joyous, blessing type of manner then often times the response is that.
