i just turned 35 and my DH is going to be 48. this is our second marriage and we each have a child from previous marriage.
we would like to try have one together but all our relatives tell us we're too old and we shouldnt bother.
esp Dh's sister who is a nurse and she's dead against us trying.
i mean who knows if i can even get pg again but are the risks really too high?

Anon 12:16... so you're saying it's "inappropriate" to have a baby after 40? What's so inappropriate about it?
& Anon 12:23... that is the most idiotic statement I think I've ever read on Cafe mom!!! You should just stop talking & move along, your ignorance is showing!
I had baby #3 at 41 & baby #4 at 42 and both of them are perfect! If you want another one, I say go for it! I'm 44, my husband is 46 and we have a 24, 18, 3 and 2 yr old & we're having a blast with our little ones! And believe it or not, we manage to play with our children just fine...

By the way, I think nature tells us when we're too old. It's called menopause.
