I am 40 and I am trying.  My Ob/Gyn knows and has given me a prescription for Clomid to help.  I have been trying for 6 years.

Nope, if you are healthy i dont see why it would be too old

I hope not, otherwise my DH & I are sunk!  It really depends on your general health, how consistent your monthly cycle is & if you are still ovulating.  Also if you have already had children previously or not.  There are alot of factors to consider.  What is your situation?

IMO...yes. I'm not you though. Not to mention all the health factors. How do you think your future child will feel about the it?
My parents were always about 20 yrs older than the other kids parents. Mine were always so out of touch with how to raise children. They always used the "well in my day...".
My dad was born in 1939 and my mom was born in 1941.

As long as the dr is okay with it, then go for it :)

These days, having older parents is not uncommon. Lots of people my age (late 30's) have newborn-toddler aged children. My dd will have plenty of classmates who are my age, or even older, when she graduates from high school.
