Hello to all!
I have been a fan of iVillage for a long time and happy that I finally got around to actually registering this evening (yey for me). I have read the different posts here and sometimes find solace in some of the stories and support I have read. I suppose it made me feel like I am not alone in my on-going quest for my first child at 43. My husband and I have been trying for about 4 years now and I must admit I am starting to feel "old" (lack of a better word). I remember waking up on my last b-day (nov. 2008) I am 43 years old... WOW! where did time go? I apologize if I sound rather down, I suppose I am...
Mother's day is almost here again and it's getting harder and harder to exist within the same breathing space as everyone else with children during this time along with all the holidays. To continue with my quest or to abandon my long time dream of motherhood, it is a quandary to me. I feel so incomplete in my life and frustrated that I am powerless to set back time.
My heart hurts so badly but I am glad I was able to vent... thank you
