We just got married in April and I’m 32 (33 next week) so we’re going to start TTC before the end of the year.  If I had a time machine I would have been married a year or two earlier and started TTC around 31 instead of 33…

Haha I’ve had baby fever since I was like 15! Obviously I knew I was wayyy too young, but I matured a lot faster than my peers and I’ve always wanted to settle down.. So ideally, I would love to start having kids by the time I’m around 25; Fiance and I want two children and I want to have them pretty close in age, so I’d like to be done around 28.. I’ve always wanted to be a young mother, and I would have them sooner if I could, but we have decided to wait until the active duty portion of his Army contract is up, because both of us want him to be here for absolutely everything when it comes to our kids.. So, if he’s out in two and a half years like he’s supposed to be, we’ll probably start around 25/26 (we’re both 21), but if he reenlists, that might get pushed back farther Undecided

I have NO baby fever now (and never had had any). I don’t know if that will change after the wedding. Right now, we’ve talked about starting TTC about 1 year after the wedding – which, right now I don’t feel ready for at all! LOL, I’m 28 now, so I’ve got plenty of time, but FH is 44, so we do need to get moving. I always figured I would wait until well into my 30’s to have kids.

I may want to have a baby a little younger than the rest of you ladies on here. But I’m 20 now, and want to have a baby by 23-24. I want to finish college & start my career, but not be too old when I have a baby. My mom got married by 15, had my brother my 17 & me by 19. I by no means did ANY of that (& my moms crazy for getting married that young, heck she’s crazy PERIOD.) but I just have a fixation as well with having a baby in my young 20’s!!

Soon! I’m 26 now – so I guess, 27 or 28. I wouldn’t mind having children in my 30’s but not my first children in my 30’s

My mom had me when she was in her early 40’s and I definitely DO NOT want to have kids then- they come out stupid, my mom likes to tell me.

I am an only child so I’d like to have a big family. Lastly, I’d like to be on the younger side (I guess because of my mom; she could never relate to my problems, fashion, etc.). I am turning 25 and ideally I’d like to be 28 for the first one, and have the next one maybe 2 or 3 years later. I’d like to stop by 35. But we are about to be unemployed, and we are going to have to start at entry level again in America, so I don’t think we’ll be ready in 3 years. It is a good thing I’m a youngish bride!

I would like to have our our first around 28 and our last child by 33 so they’ll be finished with high school around the time we turn 50. 🙂

When I was in middle school and high school I thought 25.

When I was in college I thought 27.

I didn’t get married until I was 28 though and want to be married a year so we’ll start trying soon, maybe eek a wee one in before 30 but more than likely if things work at 30. I think it’s a good age for us, we’ve traveled a bunch as a couple, I’ve gotten to finish grad school and have a bit of time to figure out what I want to do career wise and we’ll have enjoyed a happy year as a married couple.

Since we want to have a couple kids though I don’t want to wait too long, though we’ve talked about adoption as well once we get the parenting thing down.

I always thought that I’d have kids by 30 that didn’t happen.  I didn’t meet My husband until 34 and didn’t marry until 36. I’ll be at least 37.

I’d like to have our first before I turn 30…I’m 27 now so that gives us some time.  For us, it’s more about a list of stuff we want to accomplish/do before we start trying (pay off debt, buy a new house, take an amazing trip to Europe) instead of worrying about a specific age though.

In general, I think about 27/28 is a good age to start, then kid 2 @ 30.  However, for me, 30 was/is the right age, bc I needed to get married first!  Plus, I just finished my weekend masters in December.  Under the circumstances, we are hoping to have kid #2 at 32/33.

I used to want my first kid around 28 and second around 31.  I will have my first at 33 and I wasn’t actually ready at all until we started trying a few months after my 32nd birthday, a year after we got married.  Until then my desire for kids always felt distant – my life was so full of work, friends, travel and my family that I wasn’t ready yet to give it all up, I was still enjoying my indulgent, selfish life 🙂  I am happy it finally kicked in though because I didn’t want to have kids too late both, in large part to avoid the issues with getting pregnant and having a healthy baby later but also because my parents were young (25/27 when they had us) and I like having younger parents!

I would like to be preggo at least by 30.  I will be 29 one month after our wedding.  Fiance is 10 years older than me so we would like to have children as soon as possible.
