      No matter how young anybody feels you can be "elderly" in many circumstances at surprisingly young ages.
      What the hell is this? A lot of women do quite well at older ages. I suspect that this might be from some misunderstanding of statistics on pregnancies. And, of course, there is the Biblical backup here...

        It's a medical term that is still used but "advanced maternal age" seems to be the more with it terminology:

          I know of no advice not to get pregnant over 35. None; your statement says Don't. Which is utter junk and does not belong here at all. It implies very strong advice not to get pregnant after that date, and that cited article, without stating what the risks actually are, is somewhere close to useless. And it does not say Don't.

          A lot of times, you see a 10% increase in risk, which sounds bad, but then realize if it means going from 1 chance in 10,000 to 1.1 chance in 10,000, that the risk increase is so small that it is minimal - and it probably is not actually statistically significant because of the data that it is based on (not controlling for either observation bias or confounding factors).

            Meanwhile....a good explanation on why the heat was so horrible...

            Convection happens when the skin is hotter than the air. Then the gradient is “skin to air”, heat is lost. Trouble is, once the air temp gets to 35ish, the gradient is reversed, so you gain heat from the air. In Doha tonight, at 32C, there’s minimal cooling capacity.
