    Wahoo on getting a timeline!

    I’m not waiting anymore, but I voted that waiting WAS hard for me, but it was just as much about my “biological” clock as it was about my parents being around for my children.  They are older (nearly 70), not in the best of health, and I just turned 30 last week.  So yeah, I wanted things to happen sooner than later, but mostly because I really want them to be involved in my childrens’ lives. πŸ™‚

    I’m 24 and my guy is 30. Ironically, it’s his biological clock that is ticking.;)

    we’re both in our late 20s, i have a son in grade school but ive had some recent fertility issues, my Fiance has no kids so its important for me to have more in a reasonable amount of time in the future, but im not exactly in a rush either. we’re still young enough that we can try we’re both ready.

    @claireos: I’m in the exact same situation – in fact, I’m also 24 and my SO is also 30. Lol I have to say that thank goodness that it’s his biological clock that ‘s ticking or else I’d be waiting for a much longer period of time. Haha what can I say? I’m impatient Embarassed

    My biological clock isn’t ticking, because SO & I are still in our very early twenties and don’t want kids for another 7+ years.  However, if this was ten years in the future I’m sure I’d be hearing “tick tock tick tock”.

    we’re both in our early 20’s, so there’s not really any rush in terms of our biological clocks, but because i’m the oldest child and he’s the youngest, our parents ended up being a decade apart in age. i’m a bit worried that if he were to wait too long to have kids, his parents might not have the chance of knowing them. they’re both in great shape at the moment, and SO is young so he still has some time to think about all that. plus, i don’t think his parents have ever pestered him about grandkids.

    so really, there’s no rush. i just get impatient sometimes.

    @claireos: I’m in the same situation. I’m 24 and SO is 33. He’s the one with the clock ticking! I worry more about his clock than mine!

    That’s great news.  Before I was engaged I felt the same way.  Always calulating if I get married this date and then I can become pregnant this date.  I used to drive myself crazy.  Now I know the real dates I have peace of mind.  I’m getting married at 32 and hopefully will have my first child at 33.
