Just to add a different perspective, I live in Hong Kong (I'm from the UK though) and here the age women have their first baby is much later than many other places - 35 is considered normal and 40/40+ no one would bat an eyelid at. I however did surprise people when I had my DS at 29 and will likely surprise people again by having another at 31...I'm practically considered a teenage parent!

This thread makes me feel so much better about TTC at 40+! I just turned 42 and will be trying for #3 in a couple of months if dh doesn't get cold feet. I had my first at 36 and my second at 39, just a few months before my 40th birthday.

Also remember all that " research " re maternal age was completed in the 1940s when the life expectancy for a women was in her early 60s ! Alot of it is antiquated !! Now we have better medical care , better nutrition ect .....

Thanks ladies. The negativity surrounding TTC at 40+ really gets to me sometimes, especially from the medical community.
