    Default When you turned 30...

    For those who turned 30 or who will soon turn 30, how did/ will you feel about leaving 20's? Freaked out? Happy?

    I just turned 30 this month I feel nothing. Now I'm kinda worried for feeling nothing.

    I didn't feel anything when I turned 30 but I cried when I turned 31 - I guess it sunk in then that my 20's were gone heh

    Didn't feel any different, but I guess a little bit of me was like, oh, now I'm definitely a grown up, LOL!!

    When turned 30 I had two 18month olds and a 3 year old -- I was kinda distracted!

    Age isn't a big deal for me.

    I felt nothing about it too. 30 is just a number. I felt no different than I did at 29.

    Didn't feel any different, we had a big party which was fun, but there was no massive life changing moment.

    DH however is turning 30 in a couple of months and I think it will be much more of a big deal/change of life kind of thing because I will be very much pregnant by then. I imagine 29 will be pre-baby and 30 will be post baby IYKWIM.

    I didn't feel any different at all. I was the same as you OP, worried that I didn't feel different but 5 years on and I still don't feel any different.

    I was soooo sad. It was a big crisis time for me. I didn't want to grow up, and it felt so old to me. Plus I knew we'd have to start thinking about kids, and I wasn't feeling ready for that either.

    Afterwards I was fine! Just upset in the run-up to it. OP - that's great if you don't feel anything! Much more sensible
