Will 32-33yo be too late to TTC #1?


Hello everyone !

I'm struggling these days with a decision i have to take.
Currently I work in very stressful conditions, long story short I'm very unsatisfied with the work and i'd like to look for something else. That would mean I'll lose my open contract and the benefits of it, but i'll probably get a new one in max. 1-2 years.

I'm also having issues with my thyroid (probably also due to the daily stress) and I wasn't able to try to conceive since November last year, because it oscillates too much.


What would you do? Is 32-33 yo too late to TTC #1?

32 to 33 y.o. is not too late. You will need to have your thyroid under control as it effects ttc/pregnancy. I think less than 2 is tsh level that is recommended. Sorry you are in a stressful work environment and are unhappy with it. Good lick ttc in the future

Thank you, Flueky.

I'm currently 30 years old, but if i change work i'll be able to get back to TTC in one, max 2 years. It's difficult to take a decision.

At that age youíd still have a good few TTC years in you yet!
Have you had any testing done other than your thyroid? That might help you make your decision.

I totally understand your concern about age. As soon as I turned 30 I started to have a bit of a break down about the fact I hadnít had any children yet and kept going through my head about how ďitís too lateĒ and Iíll be in an old peopleís home before I get pregnant or before my kids are even 20! Totally ridiculas I know but it all went through my head!

Iím now 33. 34 in a few months and Iím month 3-4 of TTC no.1! I still feel really down about the idea of being an older mum but Iíd rather be older and in a good place to raise a child... (financially, mentally etc) ... and there is becoming more and more people who are waiting til their 30s these days to have babies so I wouldnít worry yourself too much! (Hard I know) xxxx

Not too old at all. I didn't have DS1 until I was just shy of 31 and my SIL didn't have her DS1 until she was 38. Both of us had trouble TTC.

I had mine as a teen however my mum had my sister at 34 and me at 36 (though she had no health issues) and I have never felt she is 'too old' or was too old when she had us at all.
