How cool that this thread came back to life?? I'm 42 and have an almost 17 year old and a 2 year old, and am due to have number 3 in July. Dreading announcing this to my eldest, he is a typical teenage boy and he's made his feelings fairly clear about what an inconvenience Miss 2 is! we really did try to get pregnant though - we tried our last Ivf egg last month, so I can't even pretend it was an accident!
Well, you will probably all think Im crazy! LOL
Im 45 currently 9 weeks pregnant with #4. The others are 26, 23 and 19 (way past teenagers). I also have 2 grandsons 5 and 2!
Havent told any of them yet and not sure how to or how they will take it? I plan on using my youngest as an excuse cause He went away to college in another state for 6 months and my husband and I both had horrible empty nest symptoms! I thought we were going to go insane without a child in the house and I ended up pregnant about the time my son was due back! So we will blame it on him for leaving us with an empty nest!
It will be awhile before we tell them. Im being very cautious because of my age and want to make sure everythings ok before we tell anyone!
Ive got an 18 and 17 (will be 19 and 18 by time baby arrives), 11, 9, 7 and 6 year old, this is baby number 7. We only found out today, so haven't told the kids (will wait till after first scan), but know they'll be over the moon, my eldest two and my youngest especially 😁. Xx
I don't, my oldest is 11, but just wanted to say hugs. I am 37 also. I don't feel we are THAT old lol. My 11 year old doesn't know yet but she loves babies and wants us to have more. We told her we were done. Baby 4 is a surprise. My 11 year old is sassy sometimes, and if your teen tries to sap your joy then she needs a talkin to from mom I suppose! Hopefully, she will get on board.
