this has been on my mind.

I'm 36 going to be 37 next year in January was thinking about having my last baby.

do all of you think 36 is getting old?

I feel young no health problems either I'm 5/5 120 pounds and I eat healthy.

let me know your honest answers do you think a women at 36 is old

It's a personal decision... for me, I knew for certain I'd never want a baby once I was past 40.

I think if you are healthy, it's fine. It's something everyone has to decide for themselves, not about what society thinks.

Biologically and statistically, I would say 36 is too old.

35-37 I'd say but not me! I'd foster parent.

 You're only too old when you pass menopause.

My mom was 42 when she had me.

I think it depends on the woman, honestly. Physical condition, where she is in life, what she wants, etc.

For me personally, I am 29 and I have two kids. If I have another, I won't be older than about 32 or 33. All of the crap that women 35 and older have to deal with while pregnant scares me...I mean, automatically high risk just for being 35? No thanks.

However, my aunt had her first baby at 40 and her second at 42. So my opinion is if you're healthy and want another baby, go for it. It's just not something I would do.

36 is not too old. In my circle, mid to late 30's was normal. I was 40 when my first was born.
