Greetings friends! Yes, this has become one of those lame blogs with no updates! I am so sorry!
IVF with donor eggs is on hold for now...maybe forever...who knows!
Right now I am focusing on homeschooling my oldest child for this school year. She is an "outside the box" kinda gal and needs a place to learn that is fun and engaging and at her pace!
Nothing has changed in my heart...I still want to pursue a pregnancy with age 40 looming in the near future! It's not too late for my own eggs but seems like a bad way to spend the money since there would be such an increased risk for birth defects and a lesser chance of conception. The clock is ticking...and rather loudly. Not only is it ticking for my eggs but also for pursuing motherhood in general...there are days I just can't imagine having a baby/toddler/preschooler around again. I want it but can I handle it? Would love to hear back from some of you fabulous 40-somethings....how *is* parenting a baby in your 40's?
I will check in with all of you now and then and I send warm wishes for success and happiness!
