fun to see women here! i'm wondering, why are we having babies later? maybe most of us already have children.
|Take one grad student who wants to finish degree before having kids. Add in infertility and IVF. Suddenly, I'm 35 with my first - who decides she wants to nurse until 3.5 - meaning holding off on more ART until then. And - here I am|
If I were a quiverfull, I'd have no children at all. I'm having children late in life because it took me that long to decide that taking fertility drugs to get pregnant was ok -- both times! I kept hoping diet, herbs, weight loss, etc would allow me to concieve, but my PCOS had other plans. We got married almost 12 years ago, and never used birth control, but it took quite a bit of medication to get me ovulating. I conceived ds on fertility injections, and this time we had to resort to IVF, which I never thought I'd do but my desire for another baby was too strong. I didn't even think we had all that great chances (at my age the statistic is 20% with your own eggs), but it did work. I consider it a miracle even though lots of medications and treatments were involved, just because the stats were so against me.
