At a recent birthday celebration, a dyke friend sat under the air conditioning. I was concerned that she would get too cold. The change, she said. Jeez, she isn't that old, I thought. Apparently she is.
It connected back to something I was thinking about the other day, something from my early teen years when older women seemed to be dropping out babies out like there was no tomorrow.
I forget who told me, but it was explained to me that they were change of life babies. I may have subsequently thought about change of life babies and quickly concluded that as women age, they become less fertile and worry less about becoming pregnant, perhaps give up contraception, but at the point when they are going through menopause, for a short period, they become very fertile.
I have never bothered to check that my specularation has any basis for fact?
Oh, I am getting a bit excited. Shall I hear some 'news' from some of my girl blog mates in the future?
Ah, just learned from our weekly television guide, the phrase is 'mature age pregnancy'.
