Having a baby after you turn 35 years old? Does age really matter?

If your doctor causing pressure or doing more than just informing you, then I would switch doctors. Your doctor shouldn't be pushing you to have kids when you're not ready, and a good doctor would know better. Of course, your doc should still give you all the facts and info, but not in a way that makes you feel bad.

I'm 37 and we are expecting our first child May 7, 2010. I had fibroid surgery in May 2009 and became pregnant the first month we tried. Just found out we are having a girl. No complications and feeling good.

However my dearest friend waited until she was 34 before she started her family and at 38 she had her second Feb 09. She had her career and she is such a different mom than what I was. She is confident and strong in her approach to parenting while I felt overwhelmed all the time. I always seem to struggle and she seems to have it all under control.... So yes health maybe a concern because of age however I think older parents are stronger parents. My 2 cents.... Best of luck to each and everyone of you ladies, becoming a parent is the most amazing thing you can ever do in life.... It is an amazing love.

Pre-natal health is important ... and of course doctors suggest testing if you are 35+ and don't get a BFP after 6-months of trying.
