It's a very vulnerable place to start. 12 days ago, my bf told me he'd decided he didn't want any more children (He has one by his first marriage.) 7-1/2 years ago, my then-husband told me he didn't want any children. 14 years ago, I made the decision to abort a baby because we had a condom failure and no reliable financial support.

Now I'm 37 and freaked.  I've NEVER actually had sex with the intention of getting pregnant, even once, although I've been working on getting to that point for 12 years.  What options do people consider when nothing seems to be going right?

I can tell you it's partially biological. I'm adopted at birth and I have never been genetically related to anyone I know. I don't know what it means. I want to.

Other than that, I just planned to have a family. You know, people that wouldn't leave. Someone to do right by.

I can completely understand that.
