I am on the verge - will be 40 when the baby is born. This is my second and 80% of the days I feel like crap! I can't help but wonder if it's my age because w/ my first I worked a lot, worked out, had a full and busy life. My life is still full and busy but not as much. But as another said here, while 40 is technically considered high risk, it's not like your uterus suddenly says, "hey, we're 40, let's make this hard!" I too live in NY so maybe it's geographical-cultural thing but 3 of my 4 SILs had babies after 40 and they are all healthy beautiful moms and kids.
My biggest bone of contention is that I'll be 8 months pregnant for my 40th birthday - bummer!!! I've been waiting years to have my big surprise birthday party and to reach 2 long term goals - get a hard core girly-girly Harley and run a marathon to celebrate turning 40. Alternative plan - make 41 the new 40. I'll celebrate it a year late. No big deal, I'm usually late for most things!
