    I was 35 when I finally conceived my first after TTC for 8.5yrs. DH was 40. Everyone was ridiculously happy for us as we very nearly gave up.

    OP I think it's fantastic that you're thinking ahead and are well informed of the delays that may present after being on long-term hormonal birth control. Good on you!

    Your parents should be careful what they wish for. My Mum didn't want to be a grandmother before she was 40. She was 16 when she had me, so I needed to be at least 24 to have a baby (according to her). In the end she never got to be a grandmother at all... she passed away at 46. I had my DD 5yrs later.

    As a responsible self-sufficient adult, whatever age you have a baby is no-one's business but yours and your partner's.

    Ok if it's just asked for stories not to get justification then that's different.

    You are only 22 and said you won't be trying to conceive as your parents have made it clear you shouldn't get pregnant before 30. That's plenty of time to help build a relationship between your partner and you parents. Hopefully by then they will have accepted him and like him

    I was 27 when I fell pregnant with DS1 (planned) and I had him just after I turned 28. DH was 31. Now pregnant with DS2 (unplanned) at 29 and will still be 29 when I have him. DH will be 33. I can't believe I'm going to have two kids by thirty haha!! Everyone has been really happy for us both times. I think my first pregnancy was slightly more celebrated/fussed over by some people, but that's pretty normal Those really close to me have celebrated this new bubba just as much

    Currently pregnant with #1. By the time bub is born, I'll be 31 (currently 30) and DH is 38.
    I would've loved to start a family in my mid to late 20's, but unfortunately life had different plans

    Hi Simpsondesert,
    I read your post way back that the first IVF cycle where you got pregnant based on Dr Mathias' protocol was where you had to take clexane as well as Prednisone and progesterone pessaries. Can you remember the dosage of clexane you were on? Was it the lowest dose of 20mg or 40mg?
    I am on my first IVF cycle but my TPO is ridiculously hight at 9000 (the norm is less than 60) and I want no stone unturned for this first cycle and am requesting to be on everything even though my FS was reluctant.
    At the moment I am on 20mg Clexane, 30mg prednisone (just for the 5 days after transfer), baby aspirin (81mg), thyroxine (100mg) and progesterone pessaries.
    Thanks for the wealth of information to help us ladies with an autoimmune problem!

    I was 24 when I had my first child. We were married 3months when he started ttc and bubs due date was our first wedding anniversary. I had a couple of aunties ask if it was an accident because they didn’t think we’d been married long enough. Not that their approval mattered as our parents were all over the moon. Had my second at 26 and I’ve recently found out I’m pregnant with my third and will be due a couple of weeks after my 29th birthday. All our kids have been planned and wanted and honestly no ones opinions should matter if it’s what you want and you have the ability to provide and care for the child.
