My doctor considers anyone over 35 high risk but said that really doesn't mean much. As long as you're healthy, there shouldn't be any problems with a pregnancy. I had DS at 38 and DD at 40. The chances of you having a baby with problems goes up slightly but not enough to really worry about. If you are pregnant, your doctor will do plenty of testing to make sure everything is okay.

If your pregnancy tests are negative then more than likely you aren't pregnant. If you thik the tests are wrong, you can ask for a blood test.
