Do you ever feel like you want to move up your TTC date earlier than you want because you feel like you should because of your age or other reasons?

I've been feeling that way. I'll be 28 in April and catch myself thinking that I better hurry up if I want to have another one. Someone tell me that is still young and I can wait as long as I want to at this point?

I'm just not ready for the 3rd one yet! But what to be done before 30 if possible (and I still sort of have it in the back of my head that I want 4 LOL)

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

I felt that way when we had Will 6 years ago. I never thought I would have a child because of my heart conditions, and when my heart was stronger and I was given more time before my surgery, I jumped at the chance to have him. I completely understand!

Thank you *Kiliki* for once again doing such amazing work on a siggie

I wanted to be done before I was 30 too, but I may not be because I turned 28 this year, the next one will be born when I'm 29, and we are not sure if we want 2 or 3...unless I have twins next, which is a possibility (I'm the only cousin in my generation without twins so far).

I feel the same way, we want to be done before 30 and I just turned 29 this month! I REALLY want baby #3 though, so hopefully we get to try again in 6 months.

Add me to the "I wanna be done by 30" club.

I'll be 27 in April, so I still have time. I haven't felt the urge to move our dates up earlier ...at the moment if I wait another 18 months, I'll have the timing perfected (given that we get pg in a reasonable amount of time).
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

I'm 24, so I think even if we wait at least 2 more years I'll be okay, I just wanted them closer in age, but I've changed my mind about that and I'm more okay with waiting longer, mostly until we're more financially able.
however DH will be 30 in March and he wants to be able to retire younger, so that comes into play as well.

YES! Personally, I will be turning 30 in June 2013... I really want to be DONE before I hit 31... it's some stupid magic number or something. Even though I know it's nothing special, and I would be fine going over.

However, I keep thinking how baby like Alexis still is... I feel like I'm not doing her any service by having another so soon. Though realistically if we concieve when we hope she'll be 2.5 which is when Kairi was when we started TTC Alexis and she was really involved. So I don't think waiting will really make a huge difference.

Overthinking is my enemy.
Thank you claire1979 for my cute new siggy!

I have baby fever really badly... one of the things I think about most is moving up our ttc date. I'm just trying to hang in there and wait it out but I don't know If I will have the willpower to follow through with it in the end. I may just decide my body is healed enough and start ttc before we hit our 6 month goal. We shall see.

I also wanted to be done by 30. Ill be 25 this month and just had my first 3 months ago. I want like 3-4 kiddos but do not want them real close in age so I dont know what to do! I really want to be able to cherish the time while there little so I want a couple years in between. Now im thinking I I may want to have them closer in age... im having crazy baby fever and now I may want more then 4 babies lol

But we all still have time and everyone is still young!
