Default The age thing

For me I'd been thinking about IVF For a long time, but did not really feel myself sliding toward a decision point until the occasioin of my 35th birthday. Lots' of questions seemed to jump up on that milestone occasion. They say the "big" birthdays with zeros at the end are the ones that bring big changes, well that may be true for men, but I don't think for women. For me it was 25 and now 35. I think 35 was a hurdle because it made me realize as far as the family thing is concerned, it was really now or never. Also, I wanted to have a family and still be young enough that I might be grandmother while I still remembered it.

The thing about having children is that no one is ever ready. That's why it suddenly happens it's the best way for it to happen. No timing issues to think about or to second guess. When you have trouble getting pregnant and start to consider treatment, then you start planning, and believe me when I say this is a thought process that has no good answer, at least in my case. God, things would be so much easier if you just got pregnant and then changed everything to accommodate that.

In our case, ivf was somthing that we did not pay attention to until we needed it. but these days seems more folks are taking planned approaches to managing their lives, career and even families. I think that's a good thing.

I visited a doctor in NY who told me my cancer treatments in 07 probably left me infertile. We talked about IVF but there are too many questions to think about that yet. We need to see if any of my eggs survived and also try to determine the worthiness of my uterus. I may need to consider donor egg, or even a surrogate.
