debating on getting pregnant at 44, any advice?

I personally wouldn't,I just look at it as I would be at least 64 years old when my daughter is 20,I wouldn't be young and energetic enough to run around after them and roll around on the grass outside when they want to play with them etc,I dont think me personally would have the energy or patients at 44 to have a little baby,also I don't think I'd like the idea of thinking that I wouldn't be able to do a lot and help out when my child has a baby because if they had a child at say 30 you would be at least 74,at that age I'm sure I'd just want to sit back and relax because I wouldn't have a ton of energy!

But if you know you could do it and you want to absolutely go for it,as your the only one that knows what your capable of! Good luck and I didn't mean any disrespect at all by my message! It's just that opinion.if you do have a baby I respect you very much.

Best wishes! Xx

Hi Sherrena,
If you think you can cope & you can give the child all the love & support it will need. GO FOR IT.

Like you I spent months with the same question in my head.

I was 43 November 18th . found out I was pregnant on November 27th after having my coil removed on October 8th.
People are living healthy & longer now. I have 21 & 19yr old daughters & I maynot always have the energy for this 1 that I had for them but I will certainly have more patience, experience & knowledge of the world to impart on this 1.

All the best whatever you decide.
