Any moms that had babies after 40?

I haven't started my period yet and am a little worried, but not enough to test. It hasn't been a week yet.

  • I just had my first at 40 (I turned 40 4 weeks before he was born), I would go ahead and test as soon as you can and if you're still late (and it's negative) go see your GYN.

  • Well my mom's periods started getting messed up around 39yrs old because she was starting menopause...but you can still get pregnant DURING menopause, it's just unlikely. I'd say you should talk to your OB either way...just to make sure things are working alright down there =) Good luck!
