Hi. My DH and I are going to try this summer for a baby. He will be 40 in August and I will be 34 in September. My in-laws are in town and my MIL, while so so sweet, is eager for a granddaughter but is telling me she read that more and more problems with pregnancies occur when the father is 40 or over?
Is there much truth to this or is this a scare tactic for mothers to have very risky tests done during pregnancy?
I'm kinda freaked out about this. Help.
I was 41 & my husband was 42 when we had baby #3, 12 mos later we had baby #4 and they are both perfect. The risks increase with the age of the mother, not so much the father. (unless he's like 70 or something like that.)
