having a baby in your late thirties

my partner and I are serously discussing having another child. we both have one each from previous relationships. he is 39, i am 37. Has anyone been in the same situation? words of wisdom to offer?

my mom was 39 when she had me. when i was younger it felt weird having a mom that was so much older than anyone else's. as i grew up i also realized she was so much wiser than anyone else's too. and that was a whole different generation...39 back then wasn't the same as 39 now. you're still young...i say go for it. you will probably be warned by the medical community as your risks go up after 35, but you are hardly the first to have a child at that age. best of luck :)
