Not too old, but rather old. Not a reason not to do so, but a reason to think about all aspects of such a decision.
There are two aspects - the risk to mother and developing child increase as the mother's age goes above 30, especially over 35 ; and the other part is that as one becomes older and more set in one's way oflife, the sheer amount of additional work and sleep loss caused by having an infant and then a child, is often more than people expect, and may be hard to cope with.
