I am 41 (almost 42) and 5 weeks pregnant. I have a 4 year-old boy. This pregnancy was planned. I worry of miscarriage at this age, so I am planning to stop working in a couple of weeks, because my job is very stressful.
Maybe you can take a break and try to relax.
Just got a BFP and I think I'm about 5 weeks as well. Waiting to see if it sticks. I had my DD at 41. As you can see from my signature, we tried hard for a sibling, but decided to give up finally. Then, out of the blue, Total surprise! I've never had a natural BFP ever. Just some slight cramping and fatigue right now.
I'm 40, entering second trimester with my 3rd baby. I'm also single (ugh), I have 3 dependent a already, 2 kids and my mother lives with me and I support us all financially. The father lives a state away, we see each other maybe once a week for an hour, he is very busy working 80 hrs a week. I hate that my mother lives with me because she is all up in my business, bosses my kids around, is not happy unless I'm handing her money and has rearranged/redone my entire house in a bad way, much more clutter than I want to live in, but she likes clutter. Obviously I work full time and will have to go back to work as soon as possible after the baby arrives. I can't afford prenatal care and the father hasn't offered any money for that. I contracted bacterial vaginosis the first time we had sex and it reoccurs despite treatment. (I never had any STD /STI prior to him, I was married and faithful for 14 yrs prior.) my current kids are 6 & 8, there father lives in the other side of the USA. I have no family around me, none even close, so it's me, my kids and mother and this baby on the way. I'm planning to skip most prenatal care and have an unassisted home birth. I birthed my second unassisted with no problems. I guess the biggie is having this baby at 40, being single, money, wishing I have lived my whole life differently. The babies father says he will be financially responsible, but he is a penny pincher and expects kids to have no more than 3 or 4 sets of clothes. A baby can poop that up in less than a day. My life is totally not what I would wish on anyone, but I'm sure many have it worse.
