Fertility does decrease after 40, so you may not fall pregnant. Also there is an increased risk of having a baby with Down syndrome at your age. You would have to decide whether you wish to take this risk.

I had my youngest at 41 and encountered no problems, except bp. Go ahead if you are healthy, but expect a few extra tests like an amnio. good luck
