    I had my first child at 29 and my Darling Husband and I are TTC now for another one.   I’m 32 now and he is 42.    I think that 29 was perfect for me, I had my degrees and my house and just got a permanent contract at work.

    I voted “31-35,” although we’ll be fostering or adopting (health issues mean having a kid, in the off-chance I could conceive and carry to term, very unwise). We want to have a chunk of our student loans paid off and own a house before we move forward with the kid thing.

    We’re both 25 and we have NO desire to have a kid right now. I’ve always said I’d wait till I’m 35 but Fiance feels like 30 is a better age so I think we’ll probably go with that. I anticpiate having some issues conceiving so we’ll probably start the “prep work” around 28.

    It’s so crazy to see all of these people my age with kids. Two of my closest friends have children already and it’s just not something that I want right now. I love the freedom of doing what I want to do, when I want to do it and I’m not ready to give that up yet.

    I’m about to turn 25 and Darling Husband is about to turn 28 and we plan on waiting about 3-4 years to have kids. I am shocked by how many people my age or younger that are having kids!

    I voted 22-25, because I was ‘ready’ to have kids since I was about 24. But, when we were 24, we were not financially stable. Now we are 27, so Darling Husband and I are planning to TTC next year.

    Fiance and I agreed we will start TTC in 3 years. I will be 25 and he will be 24. I would like to start as soon as we get married, but he’s really not ready for children yet. My mother was 26 when she had me.

    We’re both 26. We’re not ready now. We’ll do it………. when we’re ready? I kind of think that somewhere around 29-31 would be ideal but who knows. My brother and his wife are TTC so who knows… maybe once they have a baby we’ll get baby fever? Or we’ll get so scared we swear off kids all together? Could go either way ๐Ÿ™‚
