@skipatroller7:  You are super close to TTC. I am not as young as most of you ladies (currently 28) and cannot wait until we actually start trying in the next year or so. If we conceive in our first month of trying I will still be 29 when baby is born otherwise 30! Good luck!

I’ll be 25 when we start TTC, and 26 by the time a LO would arrive. To me, that feels ANCIENT. I always figured I would have kids around age 22 or 23! My parents were older when they had me, and they were always “too tired” or “too old” to do things with me (like running around, swimming, playing sports, or even playing sitting on the floor). I want to have the energy to do things like that with my kids! 

Waiting is KILLING ME, but we have overseas travel plans for Summer 2014 so I have to make sure I’m not too pregnant to travel. 😛

I’m 22 and FH is 23. We plan to TTC next year, when I’m 23 and he’s 24. We’re just both ready to get our little family started! He loves kids and has quite a few nieces/nephews, plus he’s the only one out of his siblings that’ll have a degree, marry, and then have children. It’s like our little reward for doing things the “right” way according to society, no point in waiting.

I am 23 and my husband is 27 we want to ttc but are worried that it will just never be the “right” time I just graduated college last january and am a middle school teacher.  I love children and we want our own family! Is there ever a good or “right” time?


We have had our house for just about 3 years have stable, state jobs and feel like it may be a good time but we are terrified!  We’ve done everything right and I feel tons of judgement from family and coworkers about being too young!  I definitely am not into the party scene nor do I go out very often if more than once a month (just a little back story!) definitely would love opinions from those who made the decision to ttc or ones who have begun a young family!!
