Many women are having children later in life, and many are doing so because they chose to establish themselves financially, and otherwise. I waited for similar reasons, so I see no problem with it. If you are healthy, and still producing eggs, check with your ob/gyn. He or she can tell you if you would be at any major risk. Good Luck!!!! I wish the best for you!
Just an afterthought....I was classified as a "high risk" so if they tell ypu that, don't let it scare you. Both of my children were healthy and fine....both full term.
Yes and no some people come out of it with a healthy child and being the same but i you have a child when your over 40 there is a MUCH bigger risk of miscarriage and birth defects not to mention the pregnancy is very hard and in rare cases can be life threatening to the mother Hope this helped :D
