I applaud women women who have the bravery to take this challenge on. Me and my wife struggled with infertility in our mid 20's - early 30's. And the growing trend as i look up and down my FB friends list, alot of my gal pals just never got married, some have never had children, now they in their late 30's, and they have to hear the clock ticking. There was a time when i had a harsher viewpoint of older parents. I was bias, with having a mom who was 36, and a father 43 when i was born. People always though my father was my grandfather, and fast forward years later... he's gone, never saw me married, never saw my children which i know he woulda LOVED!!! And i also think, with all the medical problems i've had in life, because i was the offspring of older parents, i can't but help to think that if they were 10 years younger, i wouldn't of had these issues.

Sp that's a few things you have to keep in mind when this comes up in life. If your health would to turn a 180 in about 20-25 years, how that affect your child when you are not their for their wedding? My wife is in the same exact boat with her parents. Her mom got a chance to see us wed, never saw our first child. That still bothers my wife, and it's been 10 years.
