As long as you're sure it's a baby you want and not just the babylust from having the older ones get older, I think a wide age gap can be great fun. It definitely has its disadvantages though so think it through.

I finally approached my 40th birthday and realized, it's now or never. It took me a year to get pregnant, but I have never been happier.
My only concern in your situation is that your husband obviously doesn't share this desire. At least not yet. Unless he comes around wholeheartedly, you will probably either not have that child or have a good likelihood of becoming a single parent down the road some.
