    My eldest is 8 and my youngest is 5 so it's been a while. Menopause happens late, around mid 50's in my mum's side, so I'm hoping I have enough left for just one more babe

    Default Leaving it too late

    Peak age for child rearing is 24 but I don't know many 24 yr olds who are ready for a baby.

    Funny how the world works but I guess we were built many years ago when life expectancy was much lower and you married young.

    I just hope to have all my kids before 36 if I'm that lucky.

When people decide to have kids has nothing to do with when their body is at its peak for conception, carrying and child birth.
    I'm 32 so they better put me in the geriaric mum's ward!

    Lucky clementine. At the age of 35 you ARE classed as a geriatric pregnancy...
    You have 3 years to go.

    Well with the new developments where they cut a bit of your ovary out and I think freeze and place back later on, you just may be having kids at 50 easy peasy
