OMG Unplanned Preg At 46

Re Greta - September 10

I think shes doing the right thing. Shes old and she knows shes old. Why keep a child who will be resented and looked at as the child that prevented her and her huby from realizing their dreams? A child at 46 is inconvenient for her so let her give life and then allow someone else to raise. In other cultures having a child as an older woman isnt looked at as strange at all..only in western society is having a child over the age of 40 looked at as strange and awkward.

Take it as a blessing and really take the time to enjoy a baby again. What a wonderful part of life and it goes by way too quickly. I say, "savor it"

I don't understand why so many of you are against her giving her baby up. Greta has a right to consider herself . Why is it wrong for her to give her baby to someone who isn't able to have a child?

Hello Greta, I am single and 34 and think what you are doing is wonderful and very thoughtful for the baby and your family. Are you going to do an open adoption? Please let us know how you are doing. Also, if you haven't picked a family yet and would consider a single mother, please let me know. I am single but looking to adopt. If your agency allows this and you'd be willing to share your agency's info so I could be put in for consideration that would be great. Thanks and good luck to you!

Wow. It's unbelievable that you are so selfish. omg - maybe someone should give you up. Poor child will wonder why he or she was not worth the love to you - selfish, ego driven. Then we all die - and your selfish needs didn't matter anymore...but the child lives on. Hopefully much happier than it would have been with you two.

Hello all, not sure if I should start a new post or if this is the best place for this. I can see Greta's stress. I just turned 46 last week. I have six children from ages 20 to 2. My husband and I have been married 21 years. In my early 30's we had pregnancy issues and I miscarried 13 times between my 16 year old and 8 year old. We had our first three 20, 18 and 16 easily without troubles. Then 13 miscarries and finally were lucky and got our 8 year old. Several miscarriages again but then success and our now 5 year old. At 43 without any issues along came number 6, he's two now. I am in complete shock and soooo stressed, had been on vacation and not paying any attention to cycles. Took a pregnancy test today and it is positive! Best guess is I'm probably about 6 weeks pregnant. Feeling very stressed. Six is a lot and I though I was done and finally moving forward to being able to do more than take care of babies. I am very worried about the risks involved based on my advanced maternal age. They make it sound impossible, but obviously it isn't! For those of you trying to conceive, believe me it is NOT impossible. After the issues in my 30's I cannot believe at 46 I am pregnant. Greta if you are still out there would love to hear how things turned out for you. :) If there is anyone out there close to as old as me, would love to hear your story. To all of your TTC, good luck and lots of baby dust.

Hi Greta.

I hope you and your unborn child are doing well.  Your decision to find a loving family for your baby is courageous.  If you have not found a family, I hope that you will consider my husband and me.  We have completed our adoption home study and are working with a highly experienced adoption agency.  My husband and I are financially stable, highly educated, and extremely excited to bring another child into our family.  We have two sons and they will be amazing big brothers.  We would love to get to know you and your family and give your more information about our family.  Please respond if you would like to get to know us better.  Peace, health and love to you and your family!
