UPDATE: I am not sure how my husband is going to react to my news
I went for my 6 month gyno checkup yesterday. I am 43 1/2 and he is 49. We have 4 kids our youngest is 16 and our others are 18,21 23. We are not planning anymore kids. I am on birth control and of course very close to the change of life. So imagine my surprise when the doctor informed me I was pregnant. I told her she was mistaken I am on BC. She said have you forgotten to taken any, started any new medication, been put on antibiotics recently? I said yes about 3 months ago I was given antibiotics for a uti. She said antibiotics can mess with the accuracy of birth control pills and given she thinks i am about 8-10 weeks she would guess that is what happened. I told her I was scared and she said that a lot of woman are having kids older and older in life but that I may need to be monitored a bit closer is all. My husband will be shocked. But of course we will keep this child. Its ours. I just I cant help but think I will be in my mid 50s before he is out of elementry school. Plus his brothers and sisters are 17-24years older than him/her.....any ideas on how to tell my husband without giving him his first coronary event? Is my doctor correct, are woman having children older and older now? Like my age? Just really nervous right now. I cant believe I am having a baby again.
UPDATE: I told my husband last night after making him his favorite dinner. He was shocked at first but than really excited. We just have to convert a room to a baby room and buy all new baby stuff. Now we have to tell our kiddos ;) After telling him I feel better about the situation.
Went to doctor because she wanted to do a transvaginal sonogram to see how things were going. There was no heartbeat and the baby had stopped growing at 8 weeks. My HCG levels are dropping. She said its only a matter of time before I pass the baby and fully miscarriage. She said she could do it there or we could just wait for it to happen naturally. I told her i would wait for it to happen. I am sad but I have my children. I guess god did not think it was meant to be. I am content waiting for my grandchildren now.
