You really need to consult your doctor about this. The older you are the riskier the pregnancy is.

I have a friend who was pregnant with her one and only son when she was 44. Her son is now in 4th grade, reading at an 8th grade level. He is involved in many sports and is in the gifted program. So, no, the age does not effect every child, however, there is a greater risk at that age. I agree with the pp, talk with your doctor about your concerns.
