My reasons for pregnancy later in life.

Having babies when you are older is not always due to fertility issues. For some women it is planned and for some it is just how it happens.
For me it was not planned. I never thought I would be the age I am and having babies. It was not fertility issues or career that got in my way, it was not being able to find someone I wanted to marry and have kids with.
What were your reasons for having later life babies for those Moms that did?

      I am 37 now, and will be 37 when the baby is born. I was 35 when my son was born.

      Not SO late in life then :-). Not making a value judgment either way, but I have many colleagues at work who started having kids at age 35...I think it's much more common now, for many reasons, including the ones you've noted.

      Stay at home wife and Mom. I have an older step son that is an amazing young man. My husband and myself have a little boy and newborn girl. Balancing life isn't always easy but it's always worth it :-)
