Hi everyone!

I just turned 28 and DH is 34 (35 this year). We were going to start TTC in a couple of weeks but I can't wrap my mind around how we can afford daycare.
So, I guess we're waiting until money falls from the sky, although DH is not very happy about waiting. He doesn't want to wait any longer as he feels he's getting too old.

Hey! Do you live in the UK? My partner works full time and I work part time and my son goes to nursery three times a week. We get help via tax credits towards his childcare.

Hey there

Nice to see other older WTT-ers, especially those who don't yet have children like myself.

DH and I are both 29 (30 next year) and have been together for 5.5 years. I have personally wanted children for a good many years, but up until the end of last year DH had always said he wanted children one day, but wasn't ready just yet. This was largely due to his debt situation. At the end of last year when he realised I would be debt-free in a few months (am now happily debt-free ) and when we looked at his figures, we realised he would soon be debt-free himself and that we had waited long enough. It was like a switch had been turned on for DH and suddenly he was mad keen on TTC! In early January he said we would wait until the start of 2011 and in the meantime I arranged to go away with family to Lanzarote to celebrate my 30th birthday in March 2011. Then DH changed his mind and said we could TTC sooner. Obviously sooner had to be that I was not too heavily pregnant when we travelled, so the soonest we can now try is mid-August this year.

We can't wait and we're so excited. I'm so glad we didn't have to wait any longer before TTC, as I've always wanted a big family (3 or more kids, though DH says 3 is the maximum) and my age was going against me if I wanted to achieve this (and it still may, of course).

I think men aren't as concerned and pressured about age when it comes to TTC, whereas us women know that we're on a tight deadline when it comes to age and children.

Good luck to you all in this most wonderful of journeys

Hi!! Im 35, 36 in July and came off my pill today! Very scary lol. My partner is 32 and we have been together for 6 years. He has a child already and I wasnt too bothered about having one myself until the 'body clock' kicked in. I thought it was an old wives tale but its not! Its well and truly got me :-). As I say, came off pill today and will be 'careful' for a month so I have 2 bleeds then will be TTC! Thought id be excited but im totally scared now. Im hoping its just because Ive been on the pill for 19 years and this is the first time im off it. Of course I have been worrying about my age but I cant do anything about that now :-)

Hello *waves madly*. Another 'oldie' here too, although I feel anything but ha ha! I still feel about 18 most of the time!

DH and I are both 30, he'll be 31 in July and I will be in December. I know my ticker says we're TTCing in a couple of months, but it's now going to be early next year I think. Just not quite up for it at the moment, despite having been all gung-ho earlier in the year! Figure we can leave it another six months. Plus we're not going to have anywhere to live as of next month (selling our flat and moving in with the in-laws for a few months) so I don't want to be preggers and not have a place to call home!

Hi all! I'm 33, soon to be 34, he is 29. We've been together 3 1/2 years, getting married in the Fall. We will be TTC # 1 in beginning in June. We've waited for all the reasons I've read from others--pay off debt, timing for work, child care expenses, timing for wedding (air travel required) etc...we have the debt paid off, we've thought heavily on our options for childcare/work hours etc...we are so close to June!

Now i have to figure out how to get one of those cute little tickers that I see several of you with--I'm new to this forum stuff.

Hi Membas, Welcome!!!
To get a ticker - if you click on one of ours it will take you straight to the site to do your own (there's a few different sites)... you can then just copy and paste the link into your signature.
