Hi there I would love to get peoples thoughts or advice on trying for a baby at the age of 38. I have 2 beautiful children age 18months & 14 years! I would just love to have one more little darling but obviously I am worrying about my age.
my mum had my sister when she was 33 and my brother when a few years later. i dont mean to scare you but she had really bad pregnancies.she ended up in hospital with my brother because of her thyroid and really bad morning sickness. i dont really remember much else.
on a brighter note our neighbour has just had another kid at 37 and she had a really good pregnancy.
anyway good luck with what you chose.
So many women these days are having babies at an older age. A friend of mine who just turned 40 had a baby earlier this year. She had no problems whatsoever during her pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Of course, the risks do increase with age but I say if you feel you are physically and emotionally ready for another baby then go for it!!
I am 37 and have 3 children aged 17,13 and a baby of 8months. I logged on to get some infomation on age gaps between babies because we would love another one.I am not the least bit worried about my age I think having another baby will just bring more love and happiness to our family.The doctors were really great with my last pregnancy so health wise I feel that we will be fine.
My mother had my sisiter when she was 40yrs.. I'm 27yrs n my sister is 8yrs...
My mother didn't have any problems while carrying but when she was in labour she really had a hard time. Having given birth to 4children,the 5th was the hardest for her.. But then again she was 40. Your 38 so i think u stil have time to have another one, goodluck
