No it's not. Now a days you see more women having babies later in life, mid to late 30's & early 40's. My sister in law had her 1st at age 40 & her 2nd at age 42. I am 34 & we are trying for a baby right now, too. I want 2 kids about 2 years apart, so depending on when we finally get pregnant the 1st time, I too could end up having the 2nd baby in my 40's. I have has 4 miscarriages, so I don't know how long it will be before I have the 1st baby.
The doctors tend to watch you a little more carefully when you are pregnant in your 40's, but it's deffinantly not too late.

It depends on the state of health you're in at the time, but many people recommend not having children too far into your 30s, because of decreased fertility and a greater chance of certain health effects occurring (one I'm familiar with is Autism Spectrum Disorders).
It's really never too late to have a baby, as long as you're still physically able to and emotionally prepared for it. So menopause means it's not possible anymore ):
