We been thinking about having another baby. It will be our second baby. I have one boy that is 4yrs soon to be 5yrs old. I had my first baby at 39 and every year that passes I regret not having another sibling for my son to share his life with as he grows older. I know the dangers of carrying and having a high risk pregnancy. Are these thoughts crazy at my age? Because I started so late barring children I don't want to miss the opportunity of another miracle baby coming to this world.

If you are in good health, and have discussed the risks with your doctor and he has given you the green light. Go for it.

Just listen to your doctor's advice and take care of yourself. Many women are choosing to have a child later in life, and many do so without complications.
