  • No you aren't too old.
    They will label you as "advanced maternal age" with no regard for your state of health as if you should be signing up for your first walker; so be prepared to have them try to scare you. Don't listen. Do your research and don't succumb to a thousand unnecessary tests just because they say so.

    If you have a pre-existing medical condition -- do pay extra attention. But if you are healthy and eat well and get exercise, you are just as likely to have a good labor and birth as someone who is 25.

  • i don't think you're too old at all. but if you aren't married you need to choose the partner wisely. i was told that while a woman's eggs never go bad, the older a man gets the more the likelihood of his sperm being bad. meaning he can give the baby birth defects such as down syndome etc. so men over a certain age shouldnt reproduce any longer because the chances of having a healthy baby are numbered. and they need to think about that before they breed.

  • What:? You're barely old enough to have any kids in the first place! **grin**

    39 isn't even a worry. Heck, my grandmother was giving birth as late as age 41!

  • If you still have a monthly you can still have a baby.
