I think my cut off age will be 34. If I dont have kids by then its not happening. My reasoning for this is that there are complications that can happen the older you are having a kid and I dont want to take the chance. Also I dont want to be an old parent and for my kids friends to think I’m the grandparent lol

I’ll begin at 25ish and my cut off will be 29/30. I want to have 3 kids so they’ll all be pretty little together.

I would say 35-38. I would have originally have said 35 but considering I will be 29 when we get married, and I want at least a year of wedded bliss alone with Fiance, I think 35-38 is good.

I think my absolutle cut-off would be 35 but ideally we won’t even take that long.  I plan to start at ~27 and have 3 kids.

The baby making equipment will be retired at 37. No exceptions. We talked about this before we even got engaged and I made sure he was ok with a vasectomy so we don’t have an oops.

Nearly every single patient on my caseload (learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, etc) has a mother who is 40 or older. I know thats not how it always is, but its a risk I’m just not willing to take.

Ideally 32.  I’d like to be 50 when my last graduates from HS.  At the latest, 35. We only want two, and we want them close together.  I’ll be 30 when we start TTC next fall.

yeah, I’m thinking 35, but I’ll probably be done before that. My cutoff for adoption would probably be 40.

I’d love to be done by 30,  but doesn’t look possible since I’m creeping towards 27.  So, I think we absolutely have to get started trying before 30, and throwing in the towel at 35.

I want to begin at 28 (holy sh$t… that’s 3 years from now!) and stop by 40-42. We want two and there to be some separation in years.

35, but we’re not going to start trying until I’m 30 so I could see myself having kids at 36/37 depending on circumstances.
