hi im turning 35 a virgin, no bf should i panic now? is artificial insemination a good option for me at this time?

Panic is rarely a good plan,

Panic is rarely a good plan, but I hear your concern. You are getting older and without a partner, you would like to have a child. You do have options.

One of the best resources I can recommend is the Choice Moms - an organization dedicated to the needs and concerns of women becoming single moms by choice. You'll find stories and resources from many other women facing similar struggles.

In fact, in a recent newsletter from ChoiceMoms.org, here is a list of incerdible resources you'll find.

Audio: with more than 28,000 downloads, the Choice Chat podcast is a great tool for hearing from experts and fellow moms; this post will lead you to all of them, including our newest entries -- finding a doula (expert Stefanie Antunes of Discover Birth), and dealing with jealousy and judgment (expert therapist Andrea Braverman).

Profiles: when single parenting is hardest (Kim's story), on the verge of delivery (humor from Cathi), what I've learned as a new Choice Mom (humor from Denise)

Waiting: avoiding pre-eclampsia; saving money while preparing for a healthy pregnancy

Becoming: how to cloth diaper your baby; Week 10 report of being a new mom; newborn baby boot camp tips; coping with the exhaustion

Donor conception: meeting half-siblings

Adoption: coping with the adoption wait

Q&A: is this the right doula for me?

Resources: apply for an adoption grant today (especially LGBT)

Money: get yourself out of debt; watch this if you've ignored life insurance

Health: making a commitment to your own healthy future

News: Florida finally overturns gay adoption ban, blogging day for black single motherhood

Books: "Single Mother in Charge: How to successfully pursue happiness," by Sandy Chalkoun

Regional guides: a new support group is forming in Minneapolis

Discussion board: our hot topics

Best wishes!
