Safety of getting pregnant after 32 years old

My fiancee' and I want to have a baby of our own really soon. I would like to know the risks of being pregnant at my age. I am a mother of three (3) boys already and I'm 32 years-old. None of my sons biologically are my fiancees' children but he took on the role of being there for them. But there's something that's missing for the both of us and that's to have a child of our own to show our love for one another. So my question is, what are the risks and advantages of getting and being pregnant ate my age?
