      most of the people I know who had babies at 40 or 41 were shocked as they were not trying to get pregnant
      the surprise babies were several years after their last child

      a couple of the parents were quite upset as their "freedom" was within inches and it was now gone
      one neighbor even told me it was the worst year of his life (real nice considering he wasn't the one giving birth)

        some couples reach a certain age and it's been years since the last child and they probably become careless
        as they think pregnancy wouldn't happen at this age but it can and does

        I am an older parent but am not the only one at kid's school
        am surprised how many parents have grown kids (in their 20's) but also an elementary school kid
