Sooooo, I'm 43 and have 2 children ages 11 and 12. My husband got a vasectomy 8 weeks after my youngest was born. I love my little family and was perfectly satisfied with the great life we have. I've been feeling like garbage lately and haven't been able to shake it. Took a pregnancy test yesterday and what do you know...BFP. Well, crap. Not possible right???? Took another one this morning- still pregnant. I don't want to complain because I know so many women would kill for a positive test at any age. But I can't help doing age calculations. When this kid is 10, I'll be 53. When this kid is 20, I'll be 63!!!!! Diapers. Potty training. Learning to read. Not happy. I know I'll get there but I'm so sad right now.
Re: Not happy but I will get there
It was awesome having an older big brother looking out for me, (I can only wonder how our family might have looked if all her kids survived.) I do sometimes wish I had a sibling closer in age, but I also had an amazing BFF who was like a sister to me instead.
Life can be unpredictable at times, but I'm glad you're starting to come around after the initial shock has worn off. My dad was *much* older as I was growing up, and he was the best dad I could have hoped for! Try not to let the age thing psych you out - there are lots of strengths that older parents bring to the table, too! ❤️❤️❤️
