I plan on being a mom well into my late 30s 🙂

I just have too much I want to do and see before I want kids, and I’m perfectly happy waiting until then. Plus, my husband and I also want to adopt kids because of some health issues I have, and we will need time to save up the money, as it can get costly.

I wanted to wait to have my first till I was 28 lol but FI recently told me he wants to be done having babies by the time he is 30. I am two years younger than him so I guess we will have our first when I am 26 and he is 28 and our last when I am 28 and he is 30. I am 23 now so thats only 3 years away! Yikes.

I used to think 29, but now that i’m 27 and I am not sure I’ll be ready by then. My mother had me in her early 20s, but I know that if she could have waited a few years she happily would have. I was a woops right after my parents got married. 😛

My more realistic age is 30 or 31 or 32, but dammit, I feel like I’ll never be ready by then. And logically I’d rather have children younger for my body. :-X Can someone just deliver a 4 year old to me that is my biological kid please?

FI and I want to be at least pregnant before we turn 30! We are both 27 now!

I’m almost 33 and hope to be 35 with the first child, 37 with the second (final) child. 🙂

30’s I think.

However, maybe at 29 we’ll start wanting kids. I have no idea! I don’t think you can put timelines on stuff like this.

Our goal is to be done having kids by the time we are 32.  The idea is that when we are 50, all the kids will be 18 or older and out of the house (at least they better be).  We are 25 now, but aren’t engaged yet, so looks like we’ll be squeezing as many kids in as possible in a relatively short period of time.  I can’t imagine we’ll start having them for at least 2 years or more.

Personally, I think 30-40 is ideal. Too much younger, and I think you miss out on a lot of your youth. Too much older, and you risk missing out on your children’s adulthood.

I’ll be 36-37 when we start trying for #1 and 39-41 for #2.

When is our preference or when is medically correct? lol 

I’m currently 26, and I’d ideally like to be married for a year or two first… If it happens in that first year, I’ll be happy too. If i was married younger I’d have the same plan. Whenever it happens, I’m ready. FI is 31. I don’t want HIM to start his family at 35+ either… and neither does he.

Medically speaking, I’m already missing out my “best” years… lol

I think my ideal range is 28-32, which is incidentally when my mom had kids. I need a few more years to live through my 20s.

I would love to be pregnant by 34 but we’ll see how that goes!

I always said I wanted to have my first kid when I’m 30.  Considering I’ll have just turned 29 when we get married next month, I guess we have some baby making work to get started on 😉

I always wanted to have my first kid before I was 30, so that I didn’t feel like I would be too old when (s)he is growing up. We’ll see how life actually plays out though.
