I’ve always heard that mid 30’s is when things can get complicated. I’m 31 now and really hope to be able to have a couple babies before things get too difficult.

When I was younger I always imagined being married and having kids before I turned 30. I’m a little late in the game but not giving up yet

I always thought I would have children until I went through menopause.  But my Fiance was fixed before we met and I already had kids so I stopped TTC at 28.  Now I’m going through pre-mature menopause so even if we decided to TTC again chances are not that good that I would be able to.

Thank you for the Biology 101~~~ That make me feel so much more comfortable about my plan.  so really, if I start TTC at 35 or 36, my chance is less than 2% not like crazy % that women been telling me… I’m so relief.  

Now that I undersstand the mom factor, what about the father factor?  I’m 32 now and my Fiance is turning 39 this March.  …….so by the time we TTC (assume we finally come to a conclusion we want a kid) at 35, he will be in his 40s.  Should I factor that?

I’m 31 with no kids. 

In an ideal world I would have liked to have started having them at 26 or 27 and finish up by 31-32.    So that’s not happening.

I figure I’ll push it to 35 and if it doesn’t happen….I’m not going to force it to happen.

I would really like to be done by 32, but understand that DH could die when I’m 30, and I could get re-married and want more kids when I’m 38 or 40!

So I’m too far away from that age to say for sure.

@Aquaria:  I just turned 40 and will continue to try for a while longer. My gyno is on board and said everything is good. I think it’s easyto say what age a person thinks they’d stop trying … and then you hit that age with no success. Perspectives change sometimes. 🙂

I would like to be done by 35. DH and I are both 28 right now and will start TTC this summer. We want 3 kids and would like to have them fairly close together so we will see what happens!

@Aquaria:  I’m interested in the responses as I’m 36 and will be at least 37 before even trying for kids. My mom was 41 when she had me and I was my parents first and only child.  Now one of my friend’s is a year younger than me and she decided several years ago that she was too old for kids. I talked to my BFF about it as she’s the same age as me and a doctor.  She had her second child last year at 35. She says to stay healthy, take care of yourself and go for it.  Life is full of risks.

I have never wanted to have kids past 30. I had my first at 20, second at 22, Divorced at almost 24. Now i’m getting married again and i’ll be almost 27. FH and I want two kids together, but I don’t think he wants to get pregnant instantly. Which means i’m going to end up having my last around 31ish.

If I had trouble getting pregnant my entire life would be a different story and my feelings on this subject would surely be different as well.

I’d want to stop by 35. I’m 25 now, so if I play my cards right, I’ll have about 7.5 years to TTC post wedding. Hoping for at least one, no more than two.

I gave my Fiance a very specific window as to when I am willing to try. I dont want to be younger than 31 and my last year of trying will be 35. If I haven’t got pregnant by then we will just adopt. There are so many kids out there that need a good home. Really I would be happy with just adopting to begin with by Fiance really wants to try to have at least one of our own.

@TraumaQueen:
