I got pregnant 3rd time but it will be due after I turn 40. Partner is only just turning 35.... He is from a culture where people have babies young. Will I be ostracised?

I feel young, I don't look old, but.. yeah I'm 39. I have a 3 year old and a 18 month old and was trying to get preggers but then I was 39 and 3 months and was so upset, I am waking up in sweat about turning 40. And Turning 40 and pregnant. I also am not a manager of a big company or anything... I am afraid to tell my mother who was 21 when she had me and thinks it's a disgrace all these old parents... Will my kids hate me in 5 or ten years when their friend's parents are young??

So many older parents nowadays. Bring your children up to not judge based on race, religion, clout, age etc and they won’t hate you.

I have 2 teens trust me, your kids will find plenty of reasons to hate you anyway. Live your life, as a 40 year old you are entering the I don’t give a shit what others think of me stage - embrace it.

It's your personal issue, if you don't care then it doesn't matter what anyone thinks

Um no your kids might hate you if you are mean and nasty to them They won't care your age! Who cares if your 39 and 364 days or 40 years old it's just another day over! U need to get over it
