I am 41 and my fiance is 43 and he has no kids. I am having mixed feelings about having another child. My son is 12 and I would be starting over from scratch. What are your thoughts? I have heard that women over 40 can have trouble with pregnancy. Can I get some advice from mothers over 40 having kids? Thank you

It all depends on nature, genetics and your health. There are increased chances of issues like twins, Downs Syndrome and of course infertility. I am all for moms over 40 going for it, just do your research, get a physical exam and take care of yourself! Congratulations on your engagement!
