I Wonder

A friend of mine just turned 48 today. And she has a 5 year old and a 2 year old. I didn't know about DE when she had her first child. But now I do.

I just can't imagine a 46 year old having a baby using her own eggs. However, I'm not out to her. I might float a question to her and see if she nibbles. it would be nice to have someone I really know to talk about these things.

How are you doing? I am keeping up with folks but I miss being here.

I'm coming back soon though. We have some DE humor I can only share here. And DE Daddy is tired at laughing at my same old jokes.

Anybody randomly run into someone who used DE and you didn't know it at the time?

I would hazard a guess that she used DE, but I wouldn't ask the question unless she was my best friend. And even then I might not ask. We used DE and we are completely private about it. It's no one's business and I would never answer that question truthfully if my mother asked. But at 46, I'm pretty sure she did.

I might buy one of those kids, but two? I doubt it.

I ran into someone whose mom had an oops pregnancy at 45 after having 5 kids in her 20's and 30's. I believe it can happen, it just doesn't happen often.

Yeah, I know of someone who DEFINITELY 100% did NOT do IVF and got pregnant at 41 and 45 and had 2 healthy children. But is it common? Heck no.

It might be nice to meet someone IRL who had done DE. It might freak me out a little at first.

Had an aunt who had a daughter at 45 over 20 years ago. It is rare.

I will be going through IVF with a DE in Dec. (i'm 43) Why not drop a hint to that mom. I so wish i could talk to my family about it but I won't till I am at least in the second trimester.
