Anyone near 40 TTC?

So if we decided to TTC again in a couple of years, I'll end up being 40 when I give birth or when I get pg if it takes awhile. Anyone else near 40? Concerns about getting pg or giving birth since the risks are higher?

I'll be 38 in October. I know a lady that was pregnant and aborted the baby because it would have some defects. She's 39 I think?
I have no concerns. When I get pregnant it will be a blessing

Jumping in...

I know it's not quite what you asked, but positive story wise, my mom got pregnant (with a tilted uterus and PCOS), and gave birth to me at 39 without issue.

I've had all 3 of my babies at "advanced maternal age." Everyone is different. The most important thing is that you are in good health. Talk with your dr.

My mom had me at 38 and had no issues. I also had a friend have a baby at 40 with no issues.
