Having lurked for a while....

I'm 31 and DH is 46. Fortunately last night, I think there was a break through.... DH suggested that I finish taking the current prescription of BC and then we wait and see what happens.... So that means 3 and a half months time and who knows....!!!! Although my ideal would be to conceive August/September 2011. But his comment was, if we're going to do this, he wants to be young enough to still be able to run around and play with Junior!!!

Woohoo!!!!!!

Hi, I'm 27, 28 in 3 months, DH is 28 today! We have been together for 9 years, married for 5. We already have 2 sons, aged 2 and 3 months, but are desperate to add to our family. It took us a while to get pregnant with both our boys so we are going to start in 3 months in the hope we will have around a 2 year age gap like between Brady and Jacob. I'd like to be pregnant with #3 by the time I'm 29 hopefully

Oh I would kill for your problem!!!

hehehhe
I know, I should consider this a blessing, but I don't want to spend my entire pregnancy worrying about how we're going to afford it. I'll probably end up giving in in another month or two.

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.
I live in the US. I know they offer vouchers for low income families here, but we aren't considered low income. You can claim it on your taxes, but that's only once a year and its usually only a percentage depending on your income. I wish the governement would give us the credit every month instead.

So, there's actually quite a few of us 'oldies' on here afterall!!!
So I know we've said that we feel old compared to others on here... but in 'real life' would eveyone say they are old/young in their family/friends to be having kids?
I'd say I'm kinda in the middle (at nearly 31) ... there's some that have had kids and others that are no where near even thinking about it!!!! So I'd say I'm kida average age, lol...

In real life I'm quite 'average' to be having kids compared to the people I know. Only two of my friends have either had a baby or are pregnant and they're both my age (the oldest baby is 8 months). Growing up, I always thought that 30 was a good age to start thinking about it. I have a huge extended family, but most of my cousins started late 20's/early 30's.

I'm not sure if it's a cultural thing, but in Canada I'd definitely say from the people I know late 20's/early 30's is when most people start thinking about it but in the UK I feel like I'm practically geriatric! lol!!!

I'm all over the board--some siblings had kids in their 20's, others waiting till their 30's. Coworkers, most are in the 30 range and having kids; and friends--some in 30's, a few in 20's, and a couple around 40.

For me, I didn't even get the baby bug till I hit 30. Quite honestly up to that point I was pretty sure I wasn't going to have kids, or I guess I thought I might not. Thought I might be just as happy with my career and a SO to spend my life with. Then I hit 30. I was single, and the bug hit. I decided the next person I dated would need to want kids in his future, as I knew then I did too. So on our second date, I made sure he wanted kids in his future--even if it wasn't that we would be together, I just wanted to make sure he wanted them someday. 3 1/2 years later, here we are )

Um, I shall be 43 next month, do I count? I already have one, who was born three months before my 42nd birthday (and she caught within 3 months of trying, so there's plenty of hope for us shrivelled-up old witches), but Daddy's been pressing for another since this one was about 3 months old! So far, I am resisting womanfully... I certainly haven't forgotten being pregnant, I hated every day of it, and LO's childcare is taking up a third of my wages as it is!
