Response to NY Mag Article on Mom's over 50


Well, Ladies, I have to say that reading this and seeing the picture of a woman who I agree looks to be 60+ pregnat caused a "no" reflex in me. I'm now in my mid-40's, and couldn't start trying until after 40. Not becaue I didn't want to, but because the situation wasn't right. I will say that my whole thing has been to have this wrapped up by 45 - in whatever way I have to go.

I hope I don't cause a rucus, but I have to say at some point this does become selfish. That's my opinion. I have to think about the child/children that result from this. It just doesn't seem right and quite frankly IMHO gives a bad face to the new technology available to us.

Anyhow, I probably just shouldn't have written anything, but my reaction was just so strong. If I don't end up with a baby by 45, then I'll adopt an or foster to adopt an older child. That's just how strongly I feel. It will be sad, but life is sometimes sad.
