    Without taking the test, no one can say whether it's your menopause coming or a pregnancy. If you are pregnant, you need to see the doctor as soon as possible because the risk of complications goes up with age. Not to say you can't have a perfectly fine pregnancy, but always good to see a doctor.

    Make an appointment with your doc and s/he can do checks of your hormone levels and let you know what's going on.

    Best of luck to you.
