    Plan on it around 30 or 31. I’m 27 now. We aren’t married yet and I’d like a year or two being married first. I also don’t want to rush into it… I am definitely not ready yet. He is a lot older than me and has wanted kids for years, but wasn’t able to have kids in his first marriage. So I have to consider that I don’t want him to be a really old dad or else I might wait a tad longer. But then again, I don’t want to be too old myself.. birth defects go up, it’s harder to get your body back, etc. There’s pros and cons to any age, I think. Also gives me more time to get used to the idea. I am pretty sure I want kids, I just need some more time to grow up still haha. I don’t want to be old and alone, though.. that is definitely a factor.

    I already have a child from a previous marriage and my ex husband and myself were 18 at the time of my sons birth(we were high school sweethearts). But for our first child together with my Fiance and myself we plan to start trying within a few months of getting married so hopefully I will give birth about a year after the wedding which would make me 24 at the time of birth and he would be 28 or 29 depending on the time of year the baby is born, at least that is what we are hoping for.

    I’m 25 and DH is 26 and we’ve been married for 2 years.  We plan to TTC about 2 years or so from now.  So I’d be 27 possibly 28 by the time we’d have a baby in our arms.

    I’m 24 and he’s 30. We are near our birthdays so by the time we get married next fall he will be 32 and I will be two weeks shy of my 26th birthday. I’m thinking I’d like to wait a year or two before TTC.

    We’re 29 and 31 and we’ve been married for 2 years and together for 9.  We’re still waiting at least another year.  We are totally not in a hurry.

    I was 18 when DS was born. not ideal, but whatever. The awesome part is that when he is finishing college I will only be 40 years old!!!! My kid will be grown and I’ll be young enough and with a high enough income to live it up right!

    I wanted to be 25 when I had my first baby, but I was already 25 when I started dating my husband so obviously that didn’t happen. I got married at 27 and had a baby at 28 (she was born 12 days before our first anniversary). I’d like to have a second baby by 30 but I don’t think that’s going to happen. We’ll see though.

    I’m 27 and he’s 32. He’s all about the kids already, but I’m not quite ready yet. I want to finish the CPA exam and get licensed first because I know if I get pregnant now, I’ll never do it. I’ve started the process (1 test down, 3 to go, woooo!) and I’m probably about a year or two away from being done. So we’ll probably start trying when I’m 29-30 and he’s 34-35.

    I was 17 with our LO (NOT PLANNED) and I was 20 with #2 (planned) 

    I know I was REALLY young (and I admit not ready) But I did grow up and do what I needed to do!

    We are 30 and 34…. will be 31 and 35 when we get married.  Unsure on when we will TTC, but somewhere between immediately and two years after the wedding.  Smile
