    I’m 25 and Darling Husband is 33. We plan on TTC next year. Our goals were to get married, buy a house, then TTC. We already got married and we will start the house buying process next April. We don’t feel ready for some things and for others we do. It really is cliche but I dont think anything can prepare you to ever be FULLY ready for such a huge and new responsibility. To us the most basic foundation of being “ready” is financial security, stability, and health insurance. We have all of those things but amongst those things, owning our own is important because we don’t want to keep moving around when rent prices change. All in all my biggest concerns are body changes and being off work whereas Darling Husband is most concerned with the lack of sleep. It all depends on what you want MOST.

    Lolol “half way to 30” sounds more like 15 than 29! I think you’ll be much better off than a 15 y/o! 

    Girl relax. You have lots of time. My boss and his wife got pregnant when they were both 40 – that was 10 years ago. You have tons of time to ride motorcyles and whatnot 🙂 Enjoy what life brings you now, and when you’re ready, life will be there!
