I am 44 years old with unplanned pregnancy - I just found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant... something not planned.

I am worried because, as it was the holidays, I spent quite a few nights drinking alcohol - and basically not taking care of myself.

I have a bad habit of drinking wine just about every other night, and worried that my behaviour may have already affected the developing fetus.

Of course, I have cleaned up my act the last couple weeks.

In addition, I am plain worried about having a healthy child.

Currently I am extremely tired, with headaches and some slight spotting of blood.

Who out there was/is in a similar situation?

I plan on going ahead with the pregnancy, but am not 100% convinced that this is what I should be doing.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
