My husband is 35 and I just turned 40. What are our chances of having a healthy baby?

Hey, I'm not a doctor. Play fair!. I know that it will take you longer to get pregnant - you probably should use BBT to optimize your chances. I know that "old eggs" can have more problems, but we do have tests that can be performed in utero to determine whether it is advisable to carry on. FYI, I am a 66 year old engineer (retired) and this is turning into a full time hobby, but I feel as though I am contributing. My English brother at the age of 57 impregnated a 40 year old Latvian a couple of years ago, and the baby is just a darling, Give it all you'eve got. It's what makes old age worth living!

A woman I know was your age when she gave birth to twins in 2000. Both of the babies were healthy and are now happy 4-year-olds. I also noticed having kids tends to be good for the parents, too. I swear the mother looked 20 years younger after she gave birth. Just know that that age, multiple eggs may be released, which may result in multiple birth. To quote my doctor, "You're biological clock is ticking and trying to make a final attempt to reach midnight." A little strange sounding, but it makes sense if you think about it.
