It a running joke between me and my friends about how broody I am, they all know and it comes up quite often, they arent rude about it though.. I think they are excited for me.. my closest friend had a happy accident and now has a newborn baby boy and before that had never even thought about kids in the near future... people mature at different times in their lives and we just have to do what WE want to or else we might regret it in the future xxx

my mom is like that sometimes. I say how a couple of my friends now have 2 or more children and she cant believe it... i do remind her that i am 26 and at her age she had 2 children!
I stopped drinking and partying at 18 after working in a bar and never missed it. For me a good night out is a quiet meal or a trip to the cinema. I think my friends and family find it funny that i hardly drink but it doesnt bother me.

Most of them dont know that i am broody, especially my mom so they dont really have opinions on it most of the time. I would find it hard to ignore nasty comments but i wouldnt show them that they upset me.

The area where I'm from lots of people from my highschool are married with kids (and some divorced and married again!) I'm 28. My BFFs from school are both married, one with a little man of 1.5 yrs.
I will tell you that you CAN have a family and a master's degree, there were THREE women in my program that either just had one, or were preggers while studying. In fact my friend was in early labour as she formatted her MRP!! And now has 3 kids and doing her PhD!

I always wanted children before 30, but its looking like I'll be 30-31 when we finally get our BFP so things change. I wanted to be with the right guy.
When you are crying on the bathroom floor praying for one line after you've been with the guy for 5 years... its time to move on

You do what you have to do. You'll have your babies when you're ready. Once your pregnant there's not much any of them can do about it. You'll see who really supports you and those that do are who you need in your life.

we're here for you either way!

I agree that everyone matures at different rates. Most of my friends want to wait until they are around 30 to have kids, and even though that's only 6 years away there is no way I could wait that long!! My mum had be at 31 and I always wanted to be a 'younger' mum.

I think you have to accept that some people aren't going to agree with you on the baby front hehe. The most important thing is that you know you are ready and can give a LO a good life, regardless of whether friends understand your decision.

It's very different from person to person. I have a friend who is 30 and she took it pretty hard that she was pregnant. She was more of a party person. I got pregnant when i was 18 and i was only happy about it People who aren't ready to build a family will tell you that you are too young but don't listen to them. You know better
