I would be terrified over 40, but I worry too much during pregnancy.  I know lots of healthy babies born to moms over 35 and 40.

I am a green, natural-birthing, co-sleeping, non-CIO, baby-wearing, cloth-diapering, extended-breastfeeding, non-spanking, delayed-vaccinating, early toilet-teaching, Irish Catholic mama of advanced maternal age to my extended rear-facing Italian bambino. You don't have to agree, but that's me. Nice to meet you.

I told my DH that I would like to be done when I am 35.  SO that gives us about 4 years for me to have 2 more.  LOL

I would prefer not to go past 35, but if I do, so be it. My mom had my sister at 36 and my brother at 38. She was definitely a little more tired with those pregnancies.

I had Liam at 30 and Molly at 31 and I am DONE. I honestly think that I would not mind having another one at say, 34 or 35 but my husband 45 and he is really against having any more at his age.
