want to have a baby at age 48?
Meg Asked: want to have a baby at age 48?
I t has taken me seemingly forever to find the manof my dreams. am I too old to have a baby? do women my age have healthy babies?
Im sorry it took you so long but 48 is WAY too old you will be dead before your child hits college or you wont ever see grandkids grow up. I say 35 is the mark
My wife is 40 and pregnant with our first baby, she's healthy. But maybe 48 might be a little old, I guess its still possible though…
It is possible but the older you are the more of a chance you could have a child with disability's like Downs syndromehttp://www.babycenter.com/0_age-and-fert
Talk to your ob about this, i've heard that women over 45 have a risky pregnancies and that there chances of having a child with down syndrome is high, but my sister in law said her mother had a baby at 46 and was healthy so i'm not sure lol, but talk to your dr only one to know what risk there is.
You have an increased likelihood of a baby with Downs Syndrome. And it won't be easy. You'll probably need a sperm donor, or IVF
Hey if you are physically able and financially able I say go for it. I know a lady whose 44 and just had twins.
