Well, I think if you both are happy about the choice, then go for it. Just remember, there is a greater chance you won't conceive naturally, and there is also greater risk of complications or birth defects/abnormalities and you should be prepared for both of these possibilities.

Yes you should consider it. It is such a blessing and whether you have a girl or a boy , he or she will bring your whe family even closer together. I had my 3rd child after 40 with a healtthy pregnancy, you just will be more tired it is so worth it. Good luck.

We have been together for nearly four years and he is amazing with my two kids. He said he would love a baby but theres no pressure ..if it happens I know he would be so happy but he said he considers my kids his own. I love being at home but my kids are both at secondary school. My age plays abig part in my long thinking. Just dont know what to do.
