Title says it all really. I guess it depends how many children you already have, if any, but what is the oldest age you think you would still consider having a child?

Me personally? I'd like to be around 60 when they are about 16 so 40ish?

Apprently less than 5% people die before 80...... so as long as I didn;t have to physically run after them perhaps.

However there are health implication for pregnancy


35 I think

Oh crap. Just realised thats only 7 years from now!

45 in that case grin

Personally, I don't have an upper limit. But my body is going to impose one on me at some point.

I think if you're capable of getting pregnant (naturally) then you're not too old.
