I know the longer you wait, the more risky it is, but my mom had my brother and I in her mid-30s, and we’re both fine. 🙂

I hope it’s not too long – I’m turning 31 this weekend and won’t be TTC until after our November wedding! 🙂

But seriously. I do think that, all things being equal, you’re fine. I know many women who conceived, even multiple times, in their 30s. But if you’re really concerned, you could visit with your GYN and get her input. Congrats on grad school – enjoy this time!

As long as you don’t have any conditions that would make it harder for you to conceive (PCOS, being really overweight) you should be totally fine to wait until you are 30.  Most of my friends who are 30 haven’t had their first yet!  Many of them are just now getting married.

@ladyfingers: I agree! You should go talk to your doctor about it. He/she may be able to give you tips, run tests, things like that.

Talk to your physician, not us!

(Generally I say no, unless you have fertility issues in your background.  But it’s really what feels best to you.  I’m 32, not planning on trying until I’m at least 33.)

I think its different for everybody, some people conceive right away without even really trying and then for others can take several months of even years, so its hard to know which category you would fall into without trying

I am 31 and due in March with our first.  My only advise is don’t try until you are ready.  I could take a while to get pregant, or you could be like us and it takes two months 😉  Plan a trip or something fun and enjoy married life and school!

Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome… if you don’t know what it is it’s unlikely you have it : )  I don’t have it so I don’t know for sure but I think most people are diagnosed by the time they are 28.

30 is fine, just don’t wait until 35, that’s when your risks increase.

I’m 31 now, and will be 32 when Timbit is born. There is no way I COULD have gotten pregnant before now because I was just 29 when we got engaged. 

Just talk to your doctor, but you shouldn’t have to worry until you’re waiting to be 35 or even 40 (both of which are still possibilities which doctors permission).

I went to law school at 27 and got married a week before my 30th birthday.  We are not TTC yet, but we are hoping to in the next few months.  I think if I had to go back and ot it again, I think I would have focused more on preparing my body for a baby.  Eating really nutritious foods, working out more, getting on a good regimen of supplements and vitamins, etc.  I also think I should have stayed off BC and used some alternate means because waiting for your body to readjust sucks.  Think about it as 2 years to get your body into prime fighting shape and make it a great place for your baby to spend 10 months!
