  • If you have a time table then I dont see how its a problem. I have 5 & I wanted to be done by the time I was 35. We had our last baby when I was 33, almost 34. It worked out great for us. You have plenty of time to have a baby so if you dont have a reason for the time table then dont rush yourself, but if you have a personal goal then go for it.

  • I think having a specific age set is a little silly. I mean, does it really matter if you get pregnant in September or December? I definitely wouldn't rush things just to have a baby by a certain age! It's not like your risks of any defects magically jumps at the age of 30, or even 35. Yes, the older you get the higher the risks statistically but they don't just jump up when you reach a certain age, it's a gradual rise.

  • I am the exact same way. I don't want to be much more than 30 when we have our last. I am 27 and pregnant with our third right now, so I pretty much want to give myself a year off from pregnancy and try again. Then, that will be it for us.

  • Your still so young I had my 1st at 33. Thats up to you & your choice. Don't feel rushed.

  • I'll be 21 in October and would like to be done having kids by 30ish and would like somewhere around five kids and then on top of that we are finding it takes us a year or two to get pregnant. I understand feeling like it's a time crunch. But be a little flexible with your goals, I promise you'll be happier and stress less if you don't put hard time lines.
