Why take the change and put your unborn baby at risk. Why not rather adopt?
Why do you want a child at 52 ????
Do you really think you are being fair to the child? You won't be able to see him or her attend the matric dance as you will be 70 years plus and in a home.?????
And what about their 21st, wedding etc. etc.
Don't have a child at 52 years old, PLEASE MAN.
I had my first AND ONLY child last year at 42 and cannot believe anyone would want to have a baby at 52. I feel guilty all the time when I think what my child will miss out on when he is older and not have his parents around and also that he will be alone in the world at a young age.
I agree with Badger. I am in my 40s and my parents are in the 70s. They are becoming more and more difficult by the day. The financial aspect is another subject. Having a child at 52 is very selfish. Please look after the child you already have.
Ek's 'n laatlam en my ouers in hul 80's, ek het geen verhouding met hulle nie, want die ouderdoms gaping is so groot en het niks in gemeen nie. dis net onregverdig teen oor die kind om so besluit te neem.
Please don't ask opinion of such an important decision over a website from complete strangers who know nothing about you or your circumstances. This is a very personal decision and you must make this decision. If God gives you the ability to have a baby at this age it is a blessing. Ignore negativers.
I agree with Dianne it's your decision to make. God bless.
