We adopted Brian when I was 40, had Julia when I was 41, then had Kira when I was 44.
Turning 40 seems to have stopped my fertility problems!!
As far as my pregnancys went: my 1st trimesters were not pleasant, with lots of morning sickness. But after that it was fine. I worked full time for the 1st-- teaching math, so I was on my feet at the board all day. I've got to admit that the 2nd was a lot easier physically, since I was a SAHM by then and took it easier. (But then again, my dad was in hospice for that pregnancy, and died 2 weeks before Kira was born, so there was a whole different stress level there.)
I don't know: extraordinary considerations aside, I think it goes the way it goes (at least once you actually become pregnant) . I'm not sure that age... or at least 40... has as much to do with how you feel as your general health, weight, and things of that nature.
