Just can't believe found all these different stories of people who have ended up finding themselves childless and coping in so many different ways. Hugs to all! I'm 44 and ended up having a miscarriage when I was 34 at 12 weeks, I never got pregnant again despite being with the same husband and not taking any contraceptive. We never quite manage to sort through enough of our own hang ups to get to the point of really decided to look into Fertility treatment and frankly it wasn't something I was going to push before I felt a 100% "yes lets do it" coming from both of us within our relationship. So I am, now 10 years on, having lived through 6 years of physical pain when I was around friends with children and never really told any of them, followed by 2 years of morning that it just wasn't ever going to happen. The last 2 years I've found I have thankfully and generally got to a place of acceptance, the hormones have long calmed down so I don't feel the pain any more and through a couple of friends who have only recently had children I seem to have a second chance to vicariously enjoy being around my friends and their children, something that was never pleasance through my 30's. So why post now? Well I suddenly find myself just simply bored! bored, bored, bored, with being around people with children. It feels like simply hanging around a world that brought nothing much for me but pain and loneliness and now I'm 44 I feel like life is for living, I'm not getting any younger and clearly I have a different life to live than one of motherhood and grandchildren. However, I want to be a good friend to my friends and be there for them, but I also just feel like the last 10 years of my life has been on hold and for what - NOTHING! This is all not helped with Christmas which always involves us dancing around all the other family groups who do have children often literally driving the length and breadth of the country. So I've got to a point where I don't want my life to revolve around other people's family units, it's time for me to build a vibrant and meaningful childless life. Any ideas how to do this while still being their for my friends who do have children?
