66 yo Female used IVF to get pregnant will be the oldest female to give birth in Great Britain.
Do I have thoughts on this? Um yes. Do I have an opinion on whether or not this is okay? Uh huh. But know what? There's not a damn thing I can do about it.
I HATE stories like this. They raise my blood pressure. And the people who comment on them in the forums and comments. Yikes! God love them, but they are stupid and many don't have a clue.
To me it cheapens fertility treatments and warps the public's perception about them. People think it's just so easy. There's not some freaken fertility drive-thru where you pull up and order IVF off the menu!!!! Can't tell you how many times I've gotten the "just do in vitro" phrase thrown my direction. Yeah, I'll get right on that. How about this afternoon? Stupid people.
I want to slap people who say they'd love to have triplets or multiple births. You do realize you're saying that you hope your children are premature, right? Who wishes for that?
And all the comments about "she should adopt when there are so many deserving children out there in the world." Go to hell! You don't adopt as a service to humanity. You adopt to build a family. Contrary to popular belief, there's not an adoption drive thru either. You don't just say to yourself, "I think I will adopt today, get on a plane, and come home with a baby."
Since my blood pressure is up already, I might as well tell you, we have our home inspection today. And I can tell you from experience that buying a house and the hoops you jump through is NOTHING compared completing a home study, the bureaucratic bullshit involved in finalizing an adoption, or even ONE round, ONE of fertility drugs.
Oh, and yes I used the word bullshit this morning. Blame it on the fact that I'm probably going to be on the rag at the beach this week. And I wasn't even supposed to get my period this month. Cuz that's the other thing people don't realize...You can have eggs, you can have follicles, you can force ovulation, and have the little dudes sitting and waiting, and still not get pregnant.
Good. The sooner we buy a house, the sooner we can have our home study done and adopt again. Cuz adoption is sooo much easier than getting pregnant. If you didn't get the sarcasm there, you belong in a forum with all the rest of the stupid people. I'm getting the hell off this fertility drug roller coaster.
Just in case you were wondering, you will not see me in a news story pregnant at 66.
