    I will turn 43 next month and have a 3 yr old little boy. He will turn 4 in October. Hy husband works p/t and is collecting WC benefits. Not much either... I was just laid off from my job of 5 years yesterday! Completely unexpected. I had a rough night last night as I have never been laid off before and have never collected unemployment benefits. But first time for everything I guess. My periods started to get a bit erratic the beginning of the year. I have always been like clockwork. My mother started going through menopause in her early 40's. I am on day 35 and no period. I haven't taken a test as I'm thinking it could be stress, my age etc... But this is the longest I have ever gone between cycles. I got my period twice in March, which has never happened. Then in April it was a regular cycle. My breasts are very sore. I am going to wait another 4 to 5 days and see if it arrives. But if I am pregnant I'm going to freak out. Financially we are not ready for a baby. But on the other hand I would love to have another child. Especially for my son. I'm torn. But first things first. Need to find out. Glad to have others to discuss older parenting!!
