    I was 29 and DH was 34 when our first was born

    I was 28 when we started TTC and he was 33.

    For our second I was 31 when we were trying and when I had him and DH was 35 when we were trying and 36 when we had him.

    I was 31 and DH was 39.

    We didn't have a TTC journey, we were fortunate to conceive really quickly when we decided it was the right time.

    I wanted to be pregnant by 30, and I was lucky that it happened for me.

    I have no regrets about waiting.

    #5 due sep me 34 him 38

    I don't think it matters as long as you are both happy my kids are well spaced out and oldest will be 18 when baby is born. She is closer in age to me than her sibling.
    I was one of 5, 2nd eldest, and it never bothered me. My sisters are 13 and 16 yrs younger than me and we get along great.

    I just feel like I left this to late for hubby and I feel like I am more in a rush because of his age although he is really not that old.

    2. Hubby 39; me 28.

    Hubby had his first with 21. Not planned - his ex didn't take the pill (she was older). Whoops lol

    Maybe because he has two teenage kids I feel bad for him having a newborn at 40/41 again but he really seems to want this too.

    1. DH was 32 and his ex 39 when they conceived [planned] DSD (33 and 40 with [surprise] DSS).

    2. DH was 28 and his ex 35 when they started trying, DSD was born on first round of IVF.

    DH is now 42, and I'm 26.
    He is the one who pushed to try and was/is as excited as a kid at xmas about having a newborn.

    Dh and I were both 23 when our first was born (surprise, so no planning at all). We didn't start actively trying for our second until we were both 27.

    1.how old were/are you and your hubby going to be when you had/have your first baby?

    We were both 27 when our first bub was born.


    2. How old were you when you started the journey? We started TTC when I was 24 and hubby was 25 in 2009. We had a few difficulties along the way and needed IVF to conceive and then I had a miscarriage after our first IVF Cycle.
