As long as you go into it with your eyes open I see
No problem, just remember your body isn't what it used to be the risks in general are higher, as long as you have realistic expectations I say go for it as I don't feel it is too old but you don't have years on your side,

Ask your doctor and if God wants you to have a baby in your 40's, that baby will come. There is a site for women who are in their 40's having babies. I would pray and research it. If you are already pregnant...Congratulations. It is in God's Will.

my mother was in her early 40s when she got pregnant with my youngest brother hes 3.5 and shes never regreted it. though at that age there is a higher risk of certain illnesses that the doctor tested my mother for me but didnt even cross his mind to test me for but my mother was wanting to terminate it if there was something too serious was detected that she wouldnt have done with me 20 years earlier.

While it's a bit riskier, having a baby at 40 is not a "bad" thing. As long as you're under a doctor's care, and know that you could love your child even if there were a VERY SLIGHT chance of a disability, it is a blessing. And again, the chances are slim. Plenty of women wait until their late 30's or 40's to even start, and then find they have a harder time getting pregnant. So if you're over 40 and pregnant, congratulations!
