DD was unplanned and if I hadn't had her then I'm not sure I would have actively ttc at all. I certainly wouldn't have felt motivated enough to go through any of the suggestions mentioned (although as it turns out I did go it alone with her due to relationship breaking down when I was pg). I would have just embraced the child free lifestyle I think.

I am definitely not a journalist.
I wish I was. I might be on more money
No, I am wondering - don't know really. I'm coming to the end of my 30s. I want to be a parent so much but the odds seem stacked high against me - single, and might for all I know need fertility treatment anyway in account of my age.
I went to an adoption open evening but it just upset me, and made me feel bad.
So am grateful for your responses. Definitely not a media request.

What's wrong if they are a journalist?
- going it alone (if you hadn't met someone): Before I had DD, possibly. If I knew what I know now, how hard it is to be a parent, then no.
- IVF: It's a bit too expensive for me to consider, if money was not an object, then I would.
- adoption: Yes. However I think before I can fully decide if adoption is right, my DH and I plan to try fostering first to see if it's right for us.
- surrogacy: I have considered being a surrogate, but not having someone else be a surrogate for me.
