How old were you when you conceived your 1st?

Postby Asinclair88 » Fri Jan 06, 2017 6:09 am

Hi girls,

How old were you all when you conceived your 1st?

I'm 28 and have been TTC for over a year but the more I want it to happen the more it doesn't..

I'm starting to get worried as most of my friends have children and they keep telling me 30/32 is their cut off for having anymore..

I know I'm probably being silly and I am still young I just need some reassurance :)

You are young and i read about women having kids in their fourties all the time but ofc this is a very personal choice,if you feel like you can have kids later than do it but if you feel like you can't than have them while ur young plus lots of women don't have this option,for some doesn't happen until later from various reasons.
Good luck!!
Im and im 6w pregnant,I started when I was 24 i think cant remember for sure.

You are plenty young! I know it's hard not to worry about stuff but you shouldn't add any extra pressure on yourself. I was 3 weeks from turning 27 with my 1st, 29 with my 2nd & now 31 trying for #3. You have plenty of time, tons of people have babies in their 30s these days & as Danaa mentioned even in their 40s too. Best wishes to you hun, hoping 2017 will be your year!

I was 29 when I first got pregnant, 30 when I gave birth. 31 now and working on #2 of at least 3, maybe 4. My SIL had her first, 6 months after my first, at 40, conceived naturally on their first cycle trying, and they are now also working on #2. Everybody's journey is different and age is just a number. You've got plenty of time!

I was 20 with my first, I was 25 with my 2nd , I'm just about 7w along with our 3rd and will be 33 in February.

You're still so very young, every ttc road is very different, there's plenty of time :)

I had to quote this because I was amused because I have a few friends that don't want to START until 30-32. So I think it's funny your friend group is talking about that being the cut-off. Heck most people I know don't even want to get married until they are 30 let alone have kids.

You never know what will happen, you could have one at 29, 31, 33, 35 and twins at 37. For a total of 6 kids :mrgreen:
BFP on Friday Feb 3rd 2017 but ended in miscarriage at 7 1/2 weeks :(

Didn't chart this time, last time was TTC for over a year, BFP chart from daughter :D :

We started TTC when I was 31. I wanted to start earlier but DH wasn't ready. We got our sticky when I was 33 and I had my son the day after I turned 34.

Started trying for number two at 35 and am now 36. Was hoping not to wait this long, but I had a rough time healing from him and some other things that we had to wait for. Fx it happens before I'm 37.

I was 21. Do what makes you happy. Some will say too young others will say the opposite. No particular time is better as long as you can take care of them. Baby dust to you.
