  • I say if your body will let you and you feel like you can handle it emotionally and physically then why not? Now when I heard about some of these women who decide to become mothers again in their 60s.. I cant help but then "Are you freaking crazy?!?".. but to each their own =)

  • As long as you and your baby can come out of the pregnancy healthy and your risks for birth defects aren't through the roof, then I would say it's up to you to decide. If I were considering pregnancy at 45 I would see a genetic counselor first to talk about the risk of birth defects in my specific case.
