hottpink :  gee thanks for the advice on this 4 year old thread.  Something tells me you will be like this lady- http://www.scarymommy.com/sanctimommy-with-one-2-week-old-child-cant-understand-whats-so-hard-about-parenting/ 

Hey guess what.  I eat high fructose corn syrup and I conceived both of my children after having sex one time (each). And I drank like a fish sometimes before the first.  NO REGRETS!!%#$#  GTFO.  Eating high fructose corn syrup does not cause infertility just like “relaxing” does not cure infertility.  Now of course, it is generally good advice to stay active, prepare your own foods, and try to de-stress (for everyone, not just women trying to conceive).  But you need to take a step back here lady.

GrannyPantiesRock :  I didn’t revive this post, but thanks for catching that its old. I usually notice those things…but clearly didn’t today. 

Either way, the topic is still very relevant and there are always bees looking for advice on this issue…so it’s not the worst zombie post I’ve seen lol.

I had my first at 29 and now at 30. For me those were good ages because I was well done all my schooling. Also, I was ‘mature’ enough.Now that I am 39, they are old enough where I have a lot of my independence back and they could travel with me, do all sorts of things which I am still young enough to experience with them.

On the other hand, my girlfriend had her kids super young and she is my age and they are basically grown and she completely has her life back. In conclusion, I think you will make it work no matter what you decide.

kes18 :  I didn’t even notice the high fructose corn syrup comment LOL.  Too funny!!!   

IF ONLY our infertility would be cured by not eating high fructose corn syrup!

hottpink :  LMAO. thanks for the laugh.  I wouldn’t have as much of a problem if you presented your ideas/opinions in a better way instead of being a sanctimommy (or whatever, since you haven’t given birth yet).

hottpink :  Don’t you DARE talk about another person’s child like you just did. I don’t care if you think its safe to say such things because “internet”. You do not speak about innocent children so grossly. Seriously, you do need to GTFO.

My mom’s friend, who is 48 years old, just had a perfectly healthy baby. Every woman is different and unique. Obviously if you want to mimimze your risks of health problems for the baby and infertility, then start younger. But I don’t think you need to worry so much if you’re starting in your early 30’s.

I’ll be 6 months shy of 30 when I get married, and I have absolutely no fears of waiting until my early 30s to try for a baby.  If anything, I’d feel too young!  I want to be more settled in the direction of my career, and I have some personal journies I have yet to enjoy – like buying a motorcycle.  

Don’t worry, unless you have a special limitation, your fertility in your early 30s is not a problem (so says my doctor).  Plus with modern medicine and women being more prevalent in the workplace, people are living years older and having babies later than my parent’s generation, so having babies in your 30s is the new having babies in your 20s!

I’m 37 and had my first a few month ago (going to be an “old mom” like in my 50s when my kid is in high school, lol) and I had zero problems getting pregnant and a super easy pregnancy.  In fact, I’ll probably ave another at 39 or (gasp!) 40.  Had I met my husband sooner in life (I was 33) perhaps I would have started slightly earlier but it’s kind of the norm where I live to have kids in your 30s.  I think it has way more to do with where you are in life than exactly how old you are – pros for me are that I’m financially stable and settled in my career and don’t feel like I’m misisng out on anything due to baby (got all the staying out late, partying with friends, etc out of my system before my son was born).
