  • do you think people should stop trying? Do u think 34 is to old? or okay? I will be 35 in March and this does worry me and i dont know why i keep thinking about it?? The risks to of conceiving at 35. Greater chance of twins and well my last pg was a twin but 1 baby didnt develope and really im not sure about a twin thing so late in life.Well just wanted to hear others thoughts on it and to get this board rolling a bit.LOL

  • God, I hope not. I'm expecting my first at almost 38. My doctor is not at all worried, and from the data I've read, minuscule risks become only very slightly higher after age 35. The biggest problem is it's harder to conceive, because fertility drops pretty dramatically at age 37, and gets a lot worse at 40.

  • Hi... I'm new, but wanted to pop in on this question. I would say that you are never too old. As long as you long to have a baby and docs can assure that you and the baby will not be at a huge risk... I say keep trying. I know women from other boards who were successful past 40. So, NO WAY is 34 too old. Each person is different and age is only a number... it's about how old you want to act and feel!

  • Look at the chick who had the babies several months ago, she was 58!! FIFTY EIGHT!!!!! So, it's all in how you feel and how your health is. If you're very concerned you should talk with your doctor about it. Let him/her know your thoughts on this and they'll discuss the risks, or lack of with you. I personally don't think 34/35 too old by any means.
