I am 41 and will be turning 42 in April and my partner and I are thinking of getting pregnant. He is the desperate one but I am just too scared even though I want a baby.

I can understand being scared to become pregnant after 40, but it really doesn't matter when you get pregnant as complications can happen at any age and anytime.. Just thought I would share my experiences...
I had my first son at 21 text book he spent 4 days in the NICU. So when he was 9 months old and I was just 22 we found out we were expecting baby # 2 we were excited, then on 9-6-08 we found out our little one had Gastroschisis, { inside were outside belly} cystic hydroma { which is a early sign of a chromosome issues} and on Feb 27th 2009 at 32 weeks pregnant I got chicken pox and went in to early labor, we got it stopped and she came the end of march. She was 3lbs 8ozs and perfect in every way to me, She spent 6 weeks in the NICU.. I always knew I wanted another child, After many conversation with my husband and us deciding we would take a leap of faith, Last year we had our 3rd baby, no complications other then my gallbladder acting up and him laying on the tube from my kidney which started to shut it down, but all worked out.. Sorry I truly hope this helps you....
I live by the saying: " we are never handed more then we can handle" This is the truest statement I have ever heard in my life.. Have faith...
Hope this is helpful... Best Wishes and Take Care...

Thanks Gena. We are both ready but my reason for been scare is because of my age, and thinking about the many
complications of getting pregnant after 40.

What are you scared about? Just make sure that both of you are 100% sure you want a child.
