pregnant and confused

I'm 40 and last week I found out I was pregnant.  Very unexpected.  I have 3 sons already ages22, 20 and 10. My fiancé is not exactly supportive.  I'm very scared and feel very alone.  I don't think my older children will be too please. Any advice would be appreciated.

Im 34 almost 35 pregnant with my guy of 8 years who is 59! Who has 3 adult childern from prevuous marriage ages 19, 26, and 30!!! And i have a 10 yr old son from a previous relationship! He not to thrilled nor still has told any one in his family! But i know he will be different onces its a reality! Im 26 weeks and showing! Im scared though how he will be if his kids shut him out because if this! I thought long and hard on my choice to keep this pregnancy! I just asked myself is this something im strong enough to do on my own and i decided it is!!! My choice! Yes it hurts not having the support but i made the choice as if I was in this alone! So i was not as crushed and heart broken when I did not get the support and happiness from him during my pregnancy!

I really understand your circumstances. I am 36 with 2 children ages 22 and 16. We just got our first grandchild in Jan and in Dec I found out I was 13 weeks. Now at 26 weeks our kids are super excited about the baby coming esp since its a boy and we have girls already. I dont think reality set in for my husband either until the 20 wk scan when we found out its a boy now he's excited too

Thank you ladies for sharing. I'm praying that things will turn around but either I'm keeping my little one.
