Having babies over 40...

I had my first baby at 39 and I'm contemplating baby 2. I have no other children and I want my son to have someone when he gets older and we're gone. We would start trying when my LO is 10 months if we decide to try. I'd be 41 at next babies birth. And just to put it out there my first pregnancy was very easy-I know I got lucky.

  • Do you have an actual question?  Or ....

  • Ok. I'm just wondering what people think and their experiences. I didn't think I had to ask a question...thought I could have a discussion.

    You don't. But you have to admit--this is a weird statement to start a new thread about. Especially when none of us understand what we're supposed to do with it. Tell you you got lucky? We don't know if you even had a question. We're just confused, man.

  • Thank you.

    FYI, there is an entire board for moms over 35. They might be a better source for you. We have a few, but not a ton over 40.

    I'll post there.

  • Good luck, friend!

  • I don't have experience with having a baby over 40 but I have been thinking of this too. I'm turning 36 next month and thinking about a 2nd child. Part of me wants to say we are one and done because I will be almost 40 before the 2nd child. But then I think it's important for LO to have a sibling. I think DH though is happy with only one child. I agree with PP maybe try the over 35 board. There is a pregnant over 35 board and the women there were really nice and may have a better perspective.

  • I love that you think this is snark. And by the way none of us are "kids having kids"

    Complaining about one board on another, doesn't go over very well.

    Oh gosh I haven't even looked.

    OP, your original post had nothing to do with babies born in O14, and you didn't even mention that you have a baby born in O14 until asked. Your first post sounded like you just randomly found this board via Google and asked a bunch of strangers a question, and we had no idea why you chose to ask us that question.

  • I believe you can now go up to 42 weeks gestation.

    We are so excited to grow our family!
