32 is my magical childbearing age. I can feel it in my
Why 32? Because like mother, like daughter.
No, my mom didn’t have me when she was 32. She had me when she was 27, just before turning 28.
But my parents had been trying to get pregnant for about a year before I was conceived. Ask any couple who’s been trying to conceive for a year. I bet they’ll tell you it was the longest year of their life.
But the strongest driving force behind the age of 32 is the knowledge that my mom began menopause around age 37.
I’m almost 31. 37 is just around the corner.
And although the prospect of a cramp-free existence is exhilirating, the idea of not being able to have a child terrifies me.
So 32 is my age. At 32, married or not, I’ll be putting my savings towards the turkey baster method. Or I’ll just become a turbo-slut until I’m pregnant.
I haven’t decided which route to take yet. I’m leaning towards the disease-free-turkey-baster route.
