    Wow I feel old.  I’m currently 27 and just last night told Fiance that I  don’t even want to think about kids until at least 30.  then we can talk.

    The “average” age for women to be TTC now is 32.

    I’m hoping to be pregnant by end of year. I’ll be 29. Sometimes that’s just the way it works out. I’m not worried at all.

    I’m not pregnant yet, but I’m hoping to start TTC next year.

    EDIT: Guess I should probably include that I just turned 23.

    Now days, I’ve heard several women having their first child between the ages of 30-34. I am definitely going to wait until I’m 30 to have kids… IF I have kids 🙂 Then again, you do hear a lot of women who have trouble becoming pregnant. It’s a hard process but worth it if you feel you need to wait. And who knows, even if you start now you may have the same type of difficulties. Goodluck! 🙂

    I didn’t vote because I haven’t had a baby and don’t intend to, but I do want to assure you that it’s pretty normal to wait until 29 or later.  Of all the dozens of women I know, only four have had or are planning to have kids before age 30.

    We’re waiting until we’re married to start a family and I’ll be 34 a month after the wedding.  It’s not a big deal.  It was important for both of us to have as much fun as possible being childless because we have seen a lot of friends have children too young and then feel trapped.

    We are not going to start TTC until I am 29 1/2 (haha) – basically around our one year anniversary. We are planning on two for sure, hopefully three. I have 6 really close girlfriends from college, and most of us are waiting until our 30’s. I think it’s a great age to have kids – you’re established, have money, got the partying stuff out of the way – I say don’t be paranoid and go for your masters!
