Getting Pregnant? Time Is Running Out
Breakfast in Bed – Mary Cassat
“I’m thirty-three, my career is good, I love my freedom. Do I want a baby?
“He says he wants to have a baby but spends his weekends training for marathons. He says he’ll be home at the end of the current work project but there is always another. Will I raise the baby alone? I’m thirty-eight and we are running out of time.”
“I pressured my last boyfriend to “get on track;” move in, get married, get pregnant. I don’t want to do that again.”
“Should I adopt a baby without a partner?”
“My own childhood was difficult. I’m afraid I’ll pass my baggage on to my baby.
“Am I sure about this? Do I really want a child? Suppose I never have a child. Am I a failure?”
