Too scared to test!

We have two amazing children (3 & 2) and recently decided to not have anymore... My period is now 5 days late.

I feel I will be disappointed but also relieved if I'm not pregnant. What is having 3 children under 5 like? Will I cope?

When shall I test to be sure it's accurate?

Well if you are already five days late you can test now can't you?

Are your periods regular?

Three under five is doable - don't forgot how much each child will have moved on in the 8 to 9 months of your pregnancy. So however dependent they are now, they will be that bit more independent by the time the new baby arrives.

(Speaking as someone who had 4 under 5)

Are you sure you've counted correctly remembers similar panic over miscount

I've counted correctly I hope (I'm a Maths teacher!)

Still no period, negative pregnancy test number 2 today... Never happened to me before. Getting worried there is something wrong with me now sad
