Happy Monday from The Telegraph!

I thought I'd share this article about fertility in your 40s, since encouragement for AMA ladies (especially we over-40s) can be a bit thin on the ground.  There's nothing earth-shattering in here, but it's nice to read good news every now and then!

You might not want to read the comments, though.  I have no idea why certain men take such absolute glee in the idea of uppity feminists getting their comeuppance via infertility (actually, scratch that--I guess it's kind of obvious), but just--UGH!

ETA: I just noticed this article is from May, not from today.  Happy Monday all the same.

  • Good read, thanks. I guess I can't see the comments from the ignorant folk thankfully :)
  • Thanks for sharing!
  • "The average age for a British woman to have her first child is 30, and 35 for university-educated women."

    Well, I would totally fit in better in Britain... I am definitely not "average" among my college friends.
