I'm posting in this thread as I feel you girls would be the best to advise me on this question.
I have 4 children and am turning 40 this year. I would love a 5th, but would like to wait a year and a half for both physical reasons and so I can have a baby without any demanding toddlers around. If we are lucky enough to conceive another, I would be close to 42 when it is born.
With all my other babies, I had the standard blood test/nuchal scan and came back with excellent results (at 38 the dr likened my results to that of an 18 yo)
But I am aware that being pregnant at 38 and at 41/42 are quite different.
Did you have further testing, or were you happy with the nuchal scan results, if they were very good?
It would be nice to know how to deal with this issue before I get pregnant and the preg hormones mes my emotions around.
Thanks so much
