Please try not to judge. I'm 37 and have a 7 month old baby and a 2.6 year old. I love my children. I would want more-- if I were 25. I have a physical condition that causes me a lot of pain, fatigue and strife. I am just devastated. I'm exhausted and can barely handle the kids I've got. I am against abortion but now I find myself in this awful position. I was on a very low dose birth control that has evidently failed. I just missed my period. What would you do? Please don't suggest adoption because if I'm going to carry a child I wouldn't give it up. I'm just so depressed. Please help.

UPDATE!!!! Aunt Flo showed up!! I would have put money on being pregs. All I can say is THANK GOD!! Now it's time for permanent bcp!!

 I am 37 also. And like you feel too old and tired at this point for raising anymore kids. I have my tubes tied, but if I ended up pregnant I would probably have an abortion. I am just so done with babies at this point.

 And adoption would never be an option for me either.

 You just ruled out the only 2 options other than having and keeping your baby.  I wish I knew the right thing to say.  I hope you start to feel better soon.  Good luck.

If you dont want to be, then get an abortion. Women have choices!!

Arrange to have your tubes tied after this baby.

Don't stress until you are sure.  My moms periods started getting irregular at about 35. She would be regular and then out of the blue she would miss a period.  This went on for years.  Now she hardly ever has one. Menopause happens at different ages.
