First, I would like to say that I am so thankful to have found this board. It is so nice to see so many diverse ladies who share a common bond, and who are able to get support, encouragement, and advice.
Quick intro: I am 37, never married, no kids, and hope to have at least one, hopefully without too much medical intervention. I have been with SO for 2.5 years–we knew each other as kids, and then reconnected, had a LDR, and finally found ourselves in the same city. Some of his greatest attributes–he is warm, smart, takes such good care of me, loves my family, makes me laugh constantly, is committed, and is just an all around good man. That we share a history is just icing on the cake.
I have considered myself “waiting” for about a year and a half, when we decided to move to the same city. We picked out my ring about 6 months ago, and so I am just hanging out, being as patient as possible, which you ladies know is VERY challenging. It would not be a big deal, really, if I were not already past the magical age of 35, when they consider you to be a high risk for having fertility issues and/or complications. So I do worry about this quite a bit, but don’t really talk about it with my SO, for fear of freaking him out. Do any other Bees worry about children? If so, any suggestions on dealing with the waiting, knowing that starting a family may be difficult or impossible as the clock continues to wind down? Thanks for the support, and I love this board!
