My niece had a baby at the age of 36. My friend had invetro at the age of 43. A friend's daughter had two children, one at 33 and the other at 35.
All moms/babies had normal pregnancies/births without any complications whatsoever.
Women typically go through menopause when they are in their late 40 into their fifth decade. That is when their bodies stop their reproductive capabilities. If a woman can get pregnant in her third and fourth decade of life, then nature allows that to happen because it is a viable occurrence. If women were never meant to get pregnant after the age of 30, then their bodies would not conceive a child. At least, that is how I see it.
Sure, there may be risk factors. But, as far as I am concerned, every pregnancy is a risk, regardless of your age. I was a healthy 22 year old and had a miscarriage. Although it was devastating to loose a child, I realized the fetus knew it was not a viable pregnancy and self aborted, leaving my body whole so I could try again. I got pregnant again at 27 and had another baby at 29 years of age. My first was 8 lbs and 4 oz, the second was 8lbs and 12 oz. So, you see, our bodies are an amazing thing. Trust yourself, trust your body.
One of my sons is your age now. All I can say is savor every moment you have with your child(ren) because from here on out, life speeds up and before you know it, they will be having children of their own.
