Single and wanting to have a baby

I am 27, years old. I am wanting to have a baby, but I don't have a boyfriend and I'm not married. I want to have a baby more than anything. I want to give my love. I have a good job and I'm feel that I am ready. I have been looking into sperm banks and different things like that. Will someone give me some kind of advise....Please?

Re: Single and wanting to have a baby

Whoa you have a strong heart!! My hubby almost adopted at about that age. He didn't think he would get married, had a good job and a kind heart. I think it is great you are considering this..I don't know much about it. But, I just wanted to wish you good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif">

Re: Single and wanting to have a baby

Hi,

Just a thought, do you have a really close guy friend who you do not want to be romantically involved with ? You and him could always "do the wild thing" with promises for him not to be involved if he does not want to be. I was just thinking it might be a lot easier, and less "embarressing" then making a withdrawal at a sperm bank <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Thank you so much. Not a lot of people understand. I really appreciate what you said. It makes me feel alot better about it when someone agrees with what I'm saying and how I feel. Thanks again

Yes I do have a close guy friend. That subject is really complicated. He is seperated and has 3 kids already and made a huge mistake and just had another child. I know how he is about kids and he would want to take responsiblity for everything and I don't want him to have to do that, especially since his life is already complicated.

Re: Single and wanting to have a baby

I have a daughter who is almost 8 years old and since she was about 3 I have been dying to have another. I was a single mom till she was 4. But even after I got married I could hardly wait, but money was definately an issue. I have literally driven my husband crazy. But what i found to help with that urge to have something to love and take care of, and give you that unconditional love, was a pet. Yes a pet. Yes I already had one kid, but they grow up, it's just not the same as having a little sweet baby. I got a cat and she really helped alot, almost 2 years. But you know how cats can be, so I was just about to get a small dog, when we quit using b/c, and I found out I was pregnant.

Maybe a loving pet will help you get by a little longer before you make that big step toward an actual baby, and give you some more time to try and find mister right.

But if you do choose to go with a sperm bank, just remember that a baby at 28 years old doesn't rule out mister right, as by that age, alot women already have kids, and men are used to dating women who already have kids. Just be sure that who ever you date is willing to accept being a father towards your child if you stay together. He won't be just marrying you, but your baby too.

Good Luck!
