I am having these same thoughts and urges. I am 48 met someone 15 yrs younger than me. Would love to give him a child but those risks are scarey! I also am a nurse and have 2 grown children. He has none and wants one of his own!!

Hi jeanniek, I am going through the same thing you were going through a few years ago, have 4 daughters 30.29.25. 14 next year I am getting married, my fiancé says that when we get married he wants me to have a baby. I really want to have one but all the things you said have been coming to my mind. Did you go through with it and if so how is it going.

Felt great reading this. Am going to turn 42 in a few days. i am trying for pregnancy for last 2yrs...just had an IVF and thought the doctor didnt find any thing wrong with me, i am terrified that i left it too long...also this guilt as i picked up the courage to go for motherhood so late.

I am also 47.  I have never had a child or been pregnant.  I was married young, divorced and never met the right person.  I would be considering a donor at this point and raising this child alone if I were to follow thru.  That adds to the stress if considering pregnancy at my age but I have always wanted a child. I say go for it if this is what you want.

I am also wanting to get pregnant again at the age of 48 I have four grown children all boys all healthy.  I am no way going to pretend that its not going to be hard because I fully understand the risk but reguardless I have decided to do this even though my sister's and friends think I have lost my mind that is okay I am currently taking vitamins I have changed my eating habits . I have also ordered a few bottles of fertility pills to help me concieve. but I think its should be up to us that have decided to get pregnant at our ages  Good luck to all you ladies over 45 plus

Age is one of the important factors of infertility and pregnancy complications. Women with age 40+ also affect the success of IVF. You can consider the option of surrogacy.
