My MIL had her last baby at 41yo. He is 24yo now, and she is still active mom :-) Not too late at all.

Its past the age *I*am comfortable with but certainly not too old for many. My kids are 5 years and 11 months apart. My brother and I are 11 years apart.

 I think if your healthy and able to care for the child and provide a loving and caring home go for it !

I was told by someone misinformed that 30 was too old......  I do not see 37 too old as long as you are aware of the risks that come along with age.  I only have one biological child but the age difference between her and her next oldest half sibling is 12 years.  The brother she is closest to is 20 years older than her.

To old for me yes Im 33 pregnant with my last baby my body is tired Many women are getting pregnant that are older than that and are having beautiful healthy babies so if that's what you want go for it. My first 2 children are 19 months apart the new baby will be 10 years younger than the oldest and 8 years older than my youngest. :-)

Cafe mom has a trying to conceive group no age requirement

Good luck.

My daughters are 7 years apart, I had them at 21 & 28. I'm not almost 31 & hope for 1 more.

I say if your healthy enough to carry a child then go for it. Discuss the pros & cons with your SO/Dr. I had a little girl in my preschool class a few years ago & her mom had her at 40.
