 I say when menopause starts but that is cause that is what I feel God has planned. But I am sure others will disagree and that is fine!

I am 35, full time job, married for 20 years, have a college and high school student, and all I get is "arent you worried about all the complications?"

I think much over 50 is to old. Because when that child is 18, you are gonna be near 70 years old! They need an active parent in their life to play with them!

I think it is a personal choice. I am 37 and will be having my fourth in August. My kids are 8, 5, and 23 months.

Did you have any complications after the age of 30?

I don't guess there is a right age to say is too old to be pregnant. I am worried about the complications that could come with later birth so I probably won't be having many if any after I'm 30yrs old but alot of older women have had perfectly healthy babies :o)

I had my first at 33.  No real complications other than having to have a c section which I don't think was related to age at all.  Now I'll be 36 with number two.  I had low progesteronethis time around and had to go on supplements but again I don't think it's age related.  Certainly worth it.  bottom line is I have one normal healthy child and hopefully another on the way.  I think being older and longing for something for so long makes me a better parent.  GL and screw what they all say!
