I'm thinking of having a baby even though my youngest is only going to be a year old. I'm just afraid if I wait any longer it will be more difficult to have a baby. They say that once you reach a certain age it becomes harder to concieve. Which is why teenagers are so damn fertile. lol
Anyway, just asking. I'm really seeking approval even though I'm gonna go for it anyway. Just wanna know what everyone's experience is with having a baby after 30. I just want to have our third and be done with having kids.

I think the challenge begins after 35 but for some people, it is never a struggle! Medically speaking though, the chances go down a bit after your 20's. I found this info for you....
At age 30, 75% will get pregnant within one year, and 91% within four years.
At age 35, 66% will get pregnant within one year, and 84% within four years.
At age 40, 44% will get pregnant within one year, and 64% within four years.
But I am about to be 32 and TTC #2 so I am not worried about any statistics, lol! Best wishes doll!!

I have cousins and even my mom, who had babies after their 30's. Babies are fine and they didn't take them too long to get pregnant. GL

I got preggers at 36 the first month we tried, and again at 38... but that took 3 months b/c my cycle had changed by two days so my timing was off. So, for me I'd have to say no... it's not harder. But everyone is different!!
