They’re helping each other navigate life and their genuine friendship and love are a breath of fresh air to watch.
While watching tonight’s episode, I could totally relate to Chenoa.
I think pregnant women are beautiful I just never wanted to be one of them and somehow I knew that at a very early age.
God spared me that heartache and for that I’m thankful.
I’m reading the book Otherhood by Melanie Notkin where she talks about her journey as a single woman desiring marriage and children. She’s forty and is looking for a baby daddy, not a husband, unlike Melanie who says, “Often, a woman’s involuntary childlessness, such as mine, is misinterpreted as having come about by choice.
If you’re a woman of a certain age who wants to have children yet there’s no husband or prospect in sight, maybe…just maybe you’re not supposed to have children or like Chenoa, you can’t have children and God is trying to spare you that additional heartache. Have you ever been made to feel less than because you don’t want children? Is something wrong with a woman if she doesn’t want to have children? I was pregnant out of wedlock at the age of 19 and I’m not regretful of that, could it have waited?
Remember, just because you want to have children, doesn’t mean you can have children. Yes, without a doubt and I encourage others when I encounter them in a desperate frenzy to have kids to do so however, my son is the greatest treasure but on that same note I feel God intended for me to have that child.
I want nothing to do with it and cringe at the thought of it!
In addition, I’ve suffered from severe endometriosis for many years.Have a great week Yvonne and never feel bad about being sure of what you want! So many women want to have children yet never check to see if they can. Her husband seems to want his own child created with his own seed and Chenoa doesn’t want children. I don’t know if you saw my blog post about it before it premiered. It’s on Oprah’s network and these women have real deal life issues that professional, strong, empowered women battle everyday. And when I was faced with cancer on the eve of starting a new family with my husband, I was crushed.I’ve never seen or heard of such high levels of infertility. I wonder how much of this was discussed while dating. I tweeted about it the night it first aired and Chenoa Maxwell favorited it. Thankfully God cured me and blessed me with a child. They’re real friends not four women thrown together to act like friends.In fact, I’ve always envisioned motherhood as part of the romantic wholeness of marriage and family and in my mind, it still is inseparable from love.Without one, I haven’t had a chance at the other.” Otherhood is a term used to describe single women of a certain age who want marriage and motherhood yet are approaching the end of their fertility. If I really love my husband the way I say I do, I have to leave him because he is meant to be a father. It’s being called the new modern Sex In The City and I totally get it.
