How Old is Too Old to Get Pregnant?
Is there a specific age before which you should be looking to get pregnant? What has been your personal experience with pregnancy beyond 35?
You can get pregnant as long as you ovulate. However, as you age there are many risk factors associated for the mother and the baby. There are many congenital defects associated with having a baby after 35 years of age. Many wait but it increases the risk. For example, a baby may be born with down syndrome. These types of diseases are associated with increased maternal age.
I'm in my mid-40's, and I know I don't have the energy to chase around a toddler.
I did meet a woman in her mid-50's who already had two grown children. She married a younger man who wanted children, so they paid a small fortune to allow her to conceive. I haven't seen her in over ten years, but I sometimes wonder how the child is doing.
By way of egg donation one can be pregnant at any age. 65 years anyone?
I wont recommend to get pregnant beyond 35, unless the case is very specific. It is so because you will have a healthy and smart kid if you deliver in and around the age of 30. There are lots of complications seen generally with the mother and the baby when conceived at a much later age.

I am 38 with a 7yr old son and married to the same supportive man. He has always wanted a second baby but I wasn't too sure. I am beginning to feel that time is running out for me. When will I be too old!
