I am 37 years old and am newly married for the first time, my husband is 58 and has a 23 year old daughter. I am quite desparate to have a baby as I lost my parents at a young age and am seeking a family unit, I stopped taking the pill in May '14 with consent from my husband. I'm still having serious worries about our ages and abnormalities that can happen to the baby due to our health (high blood pressure and diabetes). Am I being selfish knowing that our child may have to endure losing one of us at a young age!?!
Your thoughts and feelings would be very much appreciated.
