Hello everyone!
Im Not in my 30s yet. But i have a question.
Im 26 as of right now. But me and my BF are planning to get married Next year. We dont have any kids together. We just have our cat! *lol*. I have a DD from a prev relationship. Which my BF is a step dad too.

But here is my question. We dont plan on trying to have a kid together until we are older. When he is about 27/28 and when im like 30/31 ( Im older then him! ). Which im very much fine with. I want us to be alone before we have kids together. I told him i want to try around 30.

Anyways... So, is it common on having kids in 30s? I had my daughter when i was 20. So having kids in 30s is very weird to me and i dont know how common it is and im curious if it is? lol. Im kinda hoping im not to old to be able to have kids... seems normal but i wanted some reinsurance!!

Thanks so much and reading this!
Single mommy to the most amazing child in this entire world!

I know more and more women who are waiting until their 30s to start having a family. A few of them unfortunately have had a hard time with miscarriages & conceiving, while others have had no difficulties.

I wish you luck and when it's meant to happen you'll have another one (IMO).

Hi there - I think it depends on the region/city etc, but me and virtually ALL of my friends had our kids after age 30. Only one friend got married at 22 and had her first baby at 28. I'm now in my mid-30s and have plenty of friends who haven't started yet - they'll get there too. Starting to try at 30 gives you plenty of time. I'm certainly glad my DH and I didn't have kids right away - we have a stronger foundation for really getting to know each other.

Thank you Tasha Mae for my fantastic siggy!

We're due Jan 31st!!

I agree with CBTECH

Just remember we have a biological clock but you should be fine.

Congrats and Good Luck

I had 3 kids in my early 20s and am ttc now at 30. I've had 2 miscarriages and have been ttc since May with no success. However, most people I know have waited until 30 or older to start having kids, so I wouldn't say it is unusual.
