anyone have any views on this?

doesn't sit well with me I'm afraid!


JanH Tue 03-May-05 12:43:58

Nope, me neither, it's mad and they shouldn't be given this treatment.

"conceived naturally"

well they do say love is blind, bless her

i dont really know if i believe it or not actually

I'm usually very tolerant, live and let live and all that, but this is wrong.

Can you imagine being 70 and running after a 3 year old.

No thank you

FLUM Tue 03-May-05 12:50:52

mmmm, me neither, bit selfish knowingly having baby and knowing that as soon as they are adult they will end up looking after you or else will already be without a mother.

hope they are rich, give the kid a chance at least

It wasn't IVF, it was water from her well . Of course.

biglips Tue 03-May-05 12:51:17

OMG. it getting worse and worse about these ald pensioners have a baba.. i cant imagine my nan having a baba. no!no!no!.. i dont agree with it at all as not fair on child as she is getting on as nearly 70!!!

Rather her than me!

one has to question the doctors surely?

expatinscotland Tue 03-May-05 14:28:38

She was 67 and still ovulating viable eggs? Whoa.

JoolsToo Tue 03-May-05 14:30:07

can't believe it I'm afraid!

cellogirl Tue 03-May-05 16:15:36

I cant belive you lot are doubting the power of the magic wishing well. Cynics.

ewww, basically.

Blu Tue 03-May-05 16:22:09

Ok, I'm certainly not advocating 67, well water or not, but what do you think is the limit?

Within the span of natural childbearing age?

Rachee Tue 03-May-05 16:23:06

i am sorry , but a temination would be sensible or adoption. This child will not have a mother at 20 !! Can you imagine, i couldn't be without mine and i am in my 30's.
Put it up for adoption, give it a chance for a long time family....

lunavix Tue 03-May-05 16:27:21

I don't think you should be a parent in your 60s. Dads or mums.
Tbh I think in your 50s is dependent on how active you are.

gosh my MIL is 69 now and she reads me the obituries every time I ring her

SenoraPostrophe Tue 03-May-05 16:33:54

I think it depends on lifestyle too.

I must say she doesn't look like a woman who has a couple of grand spare or IVF.

SenoraPostrophe Tue 03-May-05 16:34:31

lots of people don't have a mother at 20 though.

Rachee Tue 03-May-05 16:45:16

i know that, truely, and i don't mean to be cruel, .... my mother lost her mother before 20 and i have had to grow up with a mother that doesn't truely understand some of the parenting things..... like when to let go, how to develope the relationship to adults, etc.

So , i stand by what i say, a child (if possible) needs to have a mother. It is best.

FLUM Tue 03-May-05 16:47:38

in all fairness she is probably starting menopause and thinks she is pregnant. perhaps having a bit of an elderly moment too. my mum is 60 and gets them all the time.

hana Tue 03-May-05 17:42:18

she isnt - false signs (story updated)

It's a phantom according to this.

Awww. Sad now! Poor old stick!
