I want to let you know that in no way do I consider 35 old! I fear I may have offended and that was far from my intention.
I feel old, simply because I feel that I'm being told (by various sources) that I am past the point of being able to have children. Having TTC for so many years now, considering stopping, and the idea that the "baby making" phase of my life will soon be over is what makes me feel old. I know there are plenty of women in their 40s TTC and I think that's wonderful. I wish I felt that door was open to me. I've actually been lurking over on TTC Over 35, hoping it won't be too cheesy to introduce myself on my 35th birthday. =-)
So really, it's just a personal thing, based on my Mother's experience. I know the chances are slim, very slim, that I'd go through what she went through, but I am afraid. (I'm going to post on that in a minute)
Please do not think I feel you or any of us are too old to TTC - I don't think that at all, its just the feeling I have for myself because of so much difficulty and disappointment. Please forgive me if I offended you in any way!
