Feel free to chime in even if your baby isn't here yet!

How do you feel having a baby in your 40s?

Hmmm, sounds like a silly study-- doesn't having a baby at any age increase the demands on your life?

But, to answer your question and the positive tone of your post, for me, motherhood at age 43 is completely awesome! Granted, I'm a first time mom so have nothing to compare it to, but I was in no way ready for this at any previous time in my life. Now I'm happier than I've ever been and I think a very good mom to my baby boy. I've also turned into one of those bragging moms who used to get on my nerves, so I'm attaching a recent pic of my pride and joy.

If you are trying to combine motherhood with a career, I believe it is much easier if you have children in your 40’s.
