" you r going through menopause,.. u r still young... no more babies for you.. just relax and enjoy  " .. i did not tell him was my b'day that day so not to make him feel bad.. but what do i say to this ? what  a luck i have ... i get these news .. on my b'day.. what a b/day present.. am i supposed to be happy ? comfortable ? life sucks... and yet i dont understand how some women way older get pregnant ? how does that happen ?? thanks K.

Do you know women only have a certain amount of eggs and once they are gone, they are gone?   Many of the older women i have seen have recieved fertility treatments in order to become pregnant.  Do you have any actual children or did they all die in utero?  I think anyone would be sad that the child bearing stage is over.

Not sure...maybe adopt or foster? You would be real special to help out in some kids life. Sorry ma!

Thanks.. no i am not int'd in adopting, if god want me to have a kid he has power to do so, if not, i am not going to adopt , i am afraid i may not be as naturally real mother as i am supposed to if if the child is not mine. k

I am 38 and postmenopausal. I went into menopause 2 years ago. I was so sad when I first found out. Cried for weeks. I mean we were done having kids , but that was our choice. To have it ripped away without asking was hard. But I am so blessed for what I do have. I am sorry sweetie hang in there I understand 100%.
