An unplanned pregnancy at 47By anonymous on 27/11/2012
I am 47 soon to be 48 and I have found out that I am pregnant.
I have other children already and they are all at school. This was not a planned event and it has happened at a point in my life when I have really been feeling that life has been moving on and the kids are getting independent.
I don't want a baby, I can't bear the idea of being pregnant againI am really worried that if we go ahead with the baby that I will resent it.
I am worried about my age and the possibilities of abnormalities. I am 7 weeks and we know there is a heart beat. I am praying for a miscarriage and feel so guilty.
I have recently been through a period of depression and had only just come out of that. I want to terminate the pregnancy, but I am terrified as to what that will be like and how I will feel afterwards. I know no one can give me answer, only I can make the choice. However I would like to tell other woman my age , don't assume that you can't get pregnant at 47.
