I know there's an increased risk of miscarriage.

Increased risk of Down Syndrome.

Increased risk of gestational diabetes or high blood pressure.

Increased chance of multiples.

They say it may be harder to get pregnant. (not been an issue for me)


I think it's a case by case basis.. I've heard women having babies in their 40's and being perfectly fine and healthy and then people having babies in their 20's having a slew of issues.. Your chances increase tremendously when you're over 40 and after 35 your risks increase so much.. I had my first at 34 and my second at 36.. no problems with the pregnancy
