I'm 41 and will be 42 when I deliver my 3rd son which was not Planned... one time w/out condom. My others are ages 17 and 10 so I fully understand your worries and concerns. I work for the Government 7:30-4:30 and come straight home and take a nap every day. Extremely tired and tired of peeing all the time. Lol  Due in Sept and I can't wait til it's over. Everyone says I'm nice except baby's father. Lol Tubes are getting tied after this since I'm still fertile Myrtle. Lol

Hi, dear! I'm smiling you say this is too old. I will share my story so that you could see another side of the question. I'm 40 yo. I took me long time to find the right man and create a family with him. My previous relations were a disaster. We broke up and finally I found myself single, childless and a complete wreck. I had unsuccessful tries ttc for 13 months with no result. Now together with my dh we decided to have a baby through any option. We applied for help in Ukrainian fertility clinic. Tests showed nothing but a low amh. dx - unexplained infertility. I'm finally due to start injections as soon as my period starts. I also believe I have needle phobia so can't take it easy anyway. I have a huge need to say that we're struggling to have a baby at 40 yo. I always keep saying to ladies you're blessed to be prego. You are going to have kids you're meant to. This is a true miracle which happens to a woman and one should be thankful for it.
I'm happy for you and you LO. Let your tiny pea develop into a healthy beautiful baby.  Get rid of pessimistic thoughts and enjoy your pregnancy! All the best to both of you xx
