My younger sibling is 8-10 years away from kids, if they have any at all. DH only has one brother, and even if we hustled, their youngest would still likely be a couple of years older than our theoretical kid. Cousins are so much fun, and it makes me sad to think of my kids missing out on that, so enjoy it!

I was 24 when we started trying, he was 30. We conceived when we were 24/31 but had a miscarriage. Conceived  again when we were 24/31 and our baby was born when we were 25/31. No regrets!

 I was 22 when I started TTC and I am happy I did. I had zero problem getting pregnant but despite my young age  had difficulties maintaining pregnancy. After 2 losses I got pregnant with my daughter and had her right before I turned 24. I am pregnant again and will have this baby at 25, I wouldn’t change a thing because who knows what age would have done to my already challenging situation. I have to take medication with both pregnancies.

Both 29, which is on the early side in our area. It’s been good, but when LO wakes up at 5am for the millionth time, I sometimes think about how nice it may have been to wait another year 😝

I am 30 quickly approaching 31 and my husband 31 quickly approaching 32. We just started TTC. And oddly… I still feel too young to start a family.

For MY life… 26 would have been a big hell to the no. 

It is your life and my opinion for myself and others’ opinions shouldn’t matter what you do…
