I know if we didn't have any kids, everyone would say 40 isn't too old. But when you already have 7 or 8, it changes things. We aren't planning anymore right away but would still like at least 1 more. Is 40 too old to be trying for more? At what age is it too old?

"Too old" to me is after menopause. The ladies that are 70 and getting IVF are crazy! 40 is not old. To some people 40 sounds old for a woman, but they don't even bat an eye if a man is 40 or even older and has young children. In the end it is your personal decision
I have a friend who had her 9th baby at 42, another friend who had her 11th baby somewhere in her early 40's. AND I know at least one woman who just had her third and is "done" because she thinks 30 is too old.

We always swore we wanted to be done by the time we were 30. So, we had 3, which was the number we agreed on before getting married, by the time we were 24 (almost 25). For a while, we thought that was good. We decided to have "just one more" at 34 and now we're having another at 36. Like others, I think it's all relative and a personal decision. For me, we had a bit of a scare with this one, which I'm pretty sure has to do with our age, and I don't think I can handle that stress of worrying again.
