I hope you have discussed the "pro's and con's" of getting pregnant at your age with an obstetrician. You are at much higher risk for complications plus if you do conceive, the baby is at much higher risk for things like Down's Syndrome. People in Hollywood may have babies at late ages but they also have a great deal of money for personal physicians to be at their beck and call and they are very closely monitored. I am not saying you cannot have a baby at 41, it can happen, but you will be considered a high risk pregnancy. As Kaismama says, you just need to be as healthy as possible. Ask your Dr about any supplements, like folic acid that may be needed. As far as diet, just a well balanced healthy diet of at least 1200 calories is good.
