    Dude I totally have that already except with popsicles.
    not just any popsicles... Hyppo popsicles they are fresh-made daily
    with real fruit and other add-ins like cilantro, avacado, gin, sangria or chipotle peppers.

    I feel like I currently have baby fever - BADLY!

    I've always had very strong maternal instincts, I am a primary school teacher so I have built my career around being with children.

    But recently it's gotten even worse...all I can think about is being pregnant, babies, and everything baby-related! Even though my husband and I aren't actively trying, every time I get my period my heart sinks a little. After 9 years with my husband and 1.5 years of marriage it just feels like the next step would be to start a little family and to bring another little soul into the world to care and nurture! It's seriously ALL I ever think about, all day every day! Ridiculous!

    On the other hand though, I feel like numerically, my age, is way too young to have a child.

    Not really. Best years to bear children safely and healthily is in your 20s - so you are actually coming to the end of that "sweet spot" age.

    FWIW, this is the sort of rubbish (no offense, Dave) that makes women feel like "old maids" by the time they're 29 or 30, which is utter and complete nonsense. Please don't feed into it. A woman's body knows when it's time to stop making babies; it's called menopause. A healthy woman in her 30's and even her 40's is totally able to have a healthy baby.

    Very true! But after the age of 35 any pregnancy is automatically labelled as high risk... Regardless of health!

    Do we assume it's true because we're told it's true, or do we use our own brains to come to that conclusion? The medical community uses an over-abundance of caution in just about every aspect.

    Most medical caution is based of statistics. So while it may be overly cautious to tag every pregnancy over 35 as high risk, statistics show that more pregnancy and birth issues happen to women over 35, generally.

    Indeed. the incidence of miscarriages and birth defects take a noticible increase at age 35 and continues to rise.

    While what inkachu wrote is true;

    "A healthy woman in her 30's and even her 40's is totally able to have a healthy baby;"

    statistics say it is increasingly difficult the later in life.

    Able - yes. But as likely as in her late teens and 20s? no.
