I am a very happy and single 35 year old woman looking to have her first baby. I have never had a preg scare or close call and really chose to wait until I was working full time and established as living on my own. However, it feels like that's all biting me in the arse now. I can't afford fertility treatments or adoption cost on my own and refuse to hook up with someone I won't like a few month's from now just so we can afford to have a child.
My brother has 3 boys which oddly enough were all born on my mum's birthday, a great gift for a grandma that I could never top. (Unless I had a girl) Anyway, my question is I have started to build up some resentment as I watch others around me who are too young and lazy, not educated enough and just plain irresponsible becoming parents. How do you deal? I feel like I am being punished for being to responsible and picky about my choice in men when I was younger. How on Gods great earth is it possible for a 15 year old to have a child and not I?
