  • Why would you be worried about her? Can you be more specific please.

  • I'm not sure what you're asking... Are you worried there's something wrong with her? Because if she doesn't give any indication of that, neither your age nor the fact that she was early (and I'm assuming she was checked out by the doctors too) should be any reason to worry.

  • worried about what? i'm sure you would have known if she had downs syndrome....and being a month early is not as big of a deal as if she was only 27 weeks gestation or something like that. is there something in her development that makes you worry?

  • Did the doctor have concerns? I'm sure they did all of the appropriate testing at the hospital, so unless the doctor had concerns, Relax and enjoy your child.

  • um, based solely on that fact - no

    Are there other factors that play a part into your concerns?

  • I don't think it is your age that matters, all the women in my family had children at later ages. My Mom was 30 when she had me, and 46 when she had my youngest sister. We were all healthy.
    But if your daughter was born a month early hopefully she is Ok.

  • Worried about what? That you were 41 when you had her or she was 1 month premature?   I heard, the older you are the more health problems you baby COULD have. Not WILL have.
