47 and pregnant naturally

What are the chances of carrying baby to term? I've taken two tests and both were positive. I'm not sure how far along I am because periods have been irregular for the last three months. I thought it was menopause. I have five children, the youngest is fifteen and I have had two miscarriages before six weeks.
