I wouldn't say it's wrong, but my mum started again when she was 44 after already having 5 children. There is 20 years between me and my little sister. She doesnt spend anytime with her grandchildren because she has her own to look after. I think it would have been nice to have her as a grandmother now because her grandchildren are missing out

My father had me when he was 45 and I have to say that this huge generational gap wasn't easy to handle, especially as a teenager!

My husband's dad was 47 when my btother in law was born and 48 when my husband was born. They are 15-20 years younger than their three older siblings so tsmhey didnt have much of a relationship with them growing up. Hubby did have a great relationship with his dad but unfortunately his dad passed away when my husband was 15 due to a heart condition with too many blood thinners causing an aneurysm. My husband loves his dad and misses him very much still. Not saying that you shouldnt do it but If it is something you want to do make sure you are healthy enough to carry a baby and chase them, and care for them properly etc. and have support of family and friends because it wont be easy. Be sure to include your children so that they can have a relationship with the new child wothout feeling resentment. good luck in whatever you decide

I wouldn't say it's wrong, but I personally would be done having kids by that age especially if I already have grandchildren. Since I'm 35 now and this is my second pregnancy, I really would like to have one more before I turn 38. If not I def wouldn't want anymore after 40.  That's just me..
