I'm 44 and getting married to a 35 year old. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is, but that's not the point ;-)
I have a ten year old daughter and they get along great. But he's always wanted his own children as well. I never wanted just one child, but the ex didn't want any more. So I want to have another child with my fiancée.
I know the medical stuff/concerns of having a baby late in life. I want to hear about the experiences of other women who've had children in there mid to late 40's. Was conception natural or with assistance? How did you handle the concern for birth defects? Was the pregnancy harder then previous?
