  • Yes you can. I would speak to a OB GYN that specializes in high risk pregnancy

  • You can but why would you want to? There's so much at risk with having a child that late in life. Like LostSoul said, please talk to your OB/GYN 1st.

  • It's possible, but your risk of having a baby with a genetic abnormality is about one in ten. That might be fine with you, but be sure you know what you might be getting into

  • THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR RESPONCE I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. I WILL TALK TO MY OB/GYN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. THE REASON I WANT ANOTHER BABY IS BECAUSE I FOUND MY SOUL MATE AND HE IS 32 AND WE REALLY WANT A BABY.

  • I had my Daughter at 44. She was a "surprise"! Make sure to see your OBGYN first though so they can put you on the right track. GL!

  • Yes, but the older you are the more difficult the pregnancy. You'd also have a greater risk of a down's syndrome child.

  • I would really think carefully about it because the older you are, especially in the 40s, the higher the chances of your child being born with a birth defect/condition, such as Down's syndrome. You'd also need to think about how you will be able to care for the child when you get older and will have less energy, strength, and any financial impact it will have. I would suggest thinking about adoption instead. There are so many children who need families and you can even skip the baby period (if you want to) and enjoy having older kids who can take care of themselves for the most part.
