Hi

We are TTC #3 and I am 37.  We have a DS and a DD already.

Am I too old/too late to be thinking about it?

I don't think you are too old at all, we have plenty of moms on the boards that are TTC into their 40s.  That's not to say that it might not take longer this time around, but that doesn't also mean that you'll have issues either.  How old are your other children?

6 and 2 1/2!

I feel like it will need to be this year if at all!  I'm worried about all the things that could go wrong now!

I know the doctors bring up a lot of fears, but you have good history with TTC! My mom had me when she was 36 and my sister had a baby at 40 :)

I don't think you are old by any means at 37.

No way! Consult with your OB, get the proper eval and keep up with your folic acid/prenatals! Think positive! :) Good luck.
