You friends may not mind it but the idea of having a 10 year old at the age of 50 does not fill me with maternal joy."I didn't suggest YOU should have a baby at 40 - as I said that I was referring to an earlier post making it out as if 40 yrs olds are all infertile. And personally it does fill me with maternal joy. I am pushing 40 & feel just fine with that idea. My health is great & I am in the best shape of my life...so I feel I can keep up with what I have going on just fine & if we add more to it, then awesome. I haven't always felt maazing while pregnant, but my health is good - so despite feeling tired & sick & achy I have no issues with blood pressure or diabetes or anything else. In fact, the causes for my miscarriages are related to Dh, so my risk for that doesn't even go up significantly.
Quoting The Master:" Ok I get it fair enough ... no more babies. Because my financial situation is not going to be changing faster than the time I have. "
Quoting Red Bottom:" Maybe no more D&Ds for you either, since you pout every time someone applies reason to your question. ... [snip!] ... it's a wasted effort. If you can't afford your children, you don't have them. Sounds easy to understand. Apparently it's not."
Quoting The Master:" I'm not pouting I'm agreeing with you ... wth?"
Quoting Red Bottom:" sounded like sarcasm. "
Quoting The Master:" Yeah because I'm sitting here in tears because of my sarcasm."
Quoting Red Bottom:" Case in point. "Look whatever ... I get where you're coming from OK. I just wanted another baby before I leaped into the world of permanent birth control via chemotherapy ok ... That's all. It was a nice dream, glad you can sit there and say things like 'case in point' while I'm breaking down.
