    Hi Jodie, I'm only 29 so don't know how I'd feel but look at Caprice she's just got pregnant for the first time at 41 and Halle berry is pregnant and she's 46 so I just think its all about how you feel. Plenty of woman are still having babies at your age and older. Good luck xxx

    I think it's personal for everyone....I would stop at 35, just because that is my cutoff....plus I have a strong family history of VERY early menopause (in mid to late thirties) and cervical cancer history...so I guess I figure I'll either go through menopause and not be able to get pregnant and I have a fear of getting pregnant and having a cancer diagnosis at the same time.....perhaps I'm just paranoid though...

    I have many friends that have conceived in their late thirties or early forties and I think it is a personal choice for everyone, I'd say keep trying until YOU feel like it's time to quit, don't let anyone dictate that choice!

    I was 36 when I fell pregnant, now I have an 8 month old and I'm 37! We would like more children so we will try again.

    My mum had me when she was 39!! So try as long as you feel you want to.

    Age is just a number.
    Like the others have said its all a personal choice.
    I'm nearly 34 and hubby nearly 38 and we're ttc our first and we defo want more than 1.
    I'm never want to give up my dream if being a Mummy, for some it just takes longer than other.

    Keep your chin up sweetie xx

    Agree as above - it's all about how you feel rather than a number.

    Had my LO at 41 and at 43 am TTC No.2

    Yes I appreciate that 'things' maybe slower now so I try no to get too hung up on TTC!!

    When I had my last MC the consultant had a good look at my ovaries during a scan and declared they were like the ovaries of a 20 year old!!!

    So I do have some hope!!
