Default Nearing the end

I may be getting near the end of my TTC journey. I turn 38 in a few weeks, and although I know many women have kids in their older years, I don't know if I want to. I am just tired of this journey and just about ready to stop. Not ready yet, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can see myself being happy with what I have.

Just thinking out loud right now. No need to respond.

It is funny how birthdays make us think about all this stuff. Instead of just having a birthday, the first thought that goes into my head is "well another year gone".

There is nothing I know you want more than to add to your family. I only hope you get that!

All to often many people think it is giving up, or just giving in that makes us come to our decision to stop trying. Knowing so many great women who have come to that decision, I know it has nothing to do with giving up. You will know in your heart when this part of your life is ready to be closed. Till then I will support you and keep cheering you on that you get that positive!

Oh and no.. 38 is not old.

Thinking of you.

Amy, you are not old but if you come to a decision that gives you some peace well that is good. No one can take away the yearning for a child. Heck I'm 35 this year and have nothing to show for it. First I said 30 and now I'm saying 35 and that's it! but I know it will be 40 before I give up.

Amy, Whatever you decide we will support you, but don't give up because you feel like you are too old. My friend has just had #5 at 42 and she is no less of a Mum because of her age. Infact her life experience makes her a better Mum.

Sometimes I think I will only give up when I've gone through the menopause!
