just wanted to say, I had my last child at 40,  yes it’s more risky to you and the baby but you can do it! Try not to take all the negative statistics about conceiving to heart. Good luck!

@luvmyDwight:  

 

I think that’s a fine age to have another child IF that’s what YOU want.   Women are doing it every day.  For myself, I couldn’t have another baby even if it was medically possible.  I love my little nieces and nephews but OMG, when they come to visit….by the time the visit is over, I’m happy to see them go.  LOL.   I don’t mean that in a bad way. They’re great kids but I love my quiet.  I love MY TIME.  I love not having to do for little ones every day, hour by hour.  I couldn’t do it again for anything….not at this age.

 

My man doesn’t have any children of his own either.  However, he and I met when my son was 12 months old and he has taken care of him his entire life.  He’s 10 now.  He even calls him Dad.  He doesn’t see his bio dad very much (4 days a month), but he knows that he’s a lucky boy to have 2 dads that love him very much.  I used to worry about my man wanting bio children, that’s one reason that we never married in the past 8 years.  I was afraid.  But, 8 years later of being a wonderful dad and a beautiful engagement ring for me, I’m convinced that he knows what he wants.  

 

I say, if you’re up for it!  DO IT!

I’m not TTC or 40, but I’m a teacher, and I’ve had three students who were “suprises” to their mothers, who were between 38-40 when they were born! These women all had other kids earlier, so these students’ brothers and sisters were already in high school/college/career.
