I'm a 40 yr old divorced mother of 5. Recently have been dating an incredible man and we went on a trip together (enough said). I have not missed my period but I'm 100% sure I'm pregnant and no idea how to tell my family. I know I sound like a teenager but I'm seriously stressed.

I wouldnt worry about what they have to say or what they think. Id make sure you are first before saying anything. Good luck!

Don't worry! I'm not saying a word until I'm showing. I have every symptom you can imagine and even a couple I didn't realize could be so I know for sure I am. I want to be happy because I LOVE my children. Just knowing how disappointed my teenagers and my parents are going to be is keeping me in knots!

Take a test first before you tell anyone.

I would not worry about it, until you see the double lines! Well, I *WOULD* worry about it, in the way that I would get myself on birth control or fixed before I had sex, again, if I did not want more babies or babies at this time.

I agree take a test before you spill the beans
