Reneeh63's profile proudly indicates she has no children, pets, or plants. I pretty much assumed that when I read her flaming post. I don't know why she would troll the Parenting board.

Because I'm pretty knowledgeable about physiology and "perimenopause" caught my eye. But when I saw the timing of the bragging was so disconnected from the fact it seemed unwarranted. <shrug> It's just a fact of life at this point...to be happy is great...more than that is what Facebook is for.

My sister's ex-husband's grandma had his dad at age 50! And that was almost 70 years ago.....(I think there's a connection to that and long life as she lived to 101!)

OP mama

Glad you were able to have the child you wanted, better late than never :-).
I just saw a story about fact that older mothers (who conceive after 40) live longer lives (90!) than women who bear children earlier and esp. longer than women who never had children. I am the last type, no kids, but that was a decision I never regretted.

Honestly, I don't think they're as low as people think. Some women get pregnant at the drop of a hat (figuratively, haha), even in their 40's.
