How Old Is Too Old To Have A Baby???

When I was growing up, I always wanted a big family, at least four kids, three boys and one girl. I had all kinds of plans to have all my kids before the age 35, especially since they claim it gets harder to conceive after that age. Last year, I turned 30 and still have yet to even have my first child, but I’m not too concerned just yet because I’ve only been married for almost 5 years and there are some things I want to accomplish first before having children.

First of all, I want to shed some much needed pounds that I have been trying to shake for years. My doctors told me that I would need to lose weight in order to conceive anyway. Something about ovulating more, blah, blah, blah. Also, I want to do some traveling and go to some foreign countries, get my career off the ground and a number of other things on my bucket list.

Seems like every where I turn, someone is getting pregnant and they are over 30, some even 35 and 40 and are  having healthy babies, so I started wondering how old is too old to have a baby? Nowadays women are having babies at a much older age. Nia Long gave birth a couple months ago at age 40,  Halle Berry had her daughter at 41, Angelina Jolie is pregnant again with twins and the list goes on. Not to mention one of my church members just gave birth last October to her 8th child at age 48.

Gabrielle Union recently sat down for an interview with Essence about motherhood. At age 39, she said she finally think she’s ready, but within the next five years which would put her at around 45. Even Tameka “Tiny” Harris was talking about  having another baby at 37 on her reality show. So, how old is too old to have kids?

What are you thoughts? Is there an age limit to having children???

    • Thanks Tami! That’s so true! I know so many people always asking me “when you gone have a baby?” because I’m the oldest and both my younger sisters have kids. I would love to have kids but then again I feel like GOD knows exactly what He’s doing and I have so many other things to accomplish so I’m thankful I don’t have them right now! Thanks again 🙂 xoxo
