    In that article one of the women they mention as making a good choice looks like she said she used IVF and felt lucky that her eggs were still viable.

    Marcia Cross, the actress, is one of the few celebrities to acknowledge, last year in a USA Today article, that older women may use donor eggs, “which doesn’t make the baby any less beautiful or perfect. One’s own eggs only last so long, and sometimes at 43 or 44 you can have your own baby, but statistically it’s very difficult and expensive. You don’t want to wait that long.” In a People cover story published after her twin girls were born, Cross was described as having “beat the odds” of conceiving via I.V.F. at age 44 using her own eggs.

    I didn't keep looking at the other women in the article. At least one other went to a fertility clinic.

    The American Academy of Reproductive Medicine would agree — by their estimate, at age 41, 29% of women are infertile.

    I am in a generation that was told to wait to have kids till after college and after you have a job and after you.... And I know too many women who waited and ended up regretting their decision.

    Like most things, a balance is likely wise.

    However, if you are over 45, the chances of conceiving with your own eggs is very unlikely.

    I think it's a good idea to have kids before 40. People can always adopt, too, if they want children that badly at a later age.

    There is also the option of cryogenically freezing eggs.

    I was thinking this too. Store them from the younger years for when you're ready, but I think there's still a shelf life that needs to be taken into account.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Uhh- yes and no. I've heard of women who become depressed if they hit the magic number 40 without having a kid. Although, it doesn’t seem to hit them as hard if they are married or recently divorced. I think it’s more of a matter of being lonely then a sudden drastic increased desire for children.

    A lot of woman who have never had kids view the child/parent bond to be the same as a best-friend/best friend-bond.

    I wonder why, because that's inaccurate. Loving a child is more like platonically being in love. It's like falling in love with someone, without any adult physical element. As an aunt, I would kill anyone who messed with my favorite nephew. The feelings I have toward him are the closest thing I've ever experienced to parent-child love, and I assume that if I had actually given birth to him the feeling would be even more intense. My range of comparison includes the fact that I have been pregnant before (late term miscarriage) and have experienced the intense, inexplicable emotional sense of loss of losing a pregnancy at sixteen weeks and observing other women, including my two sisters who have children.
