Hi :)
29
Tue, 03-29-2011 - 3:05pm

I have lurked this board for ages, so it's time I said hi. I'm E, I just turned 29 this month and I'm getting married in September 2011. I don't have any children yet, but my husband to be has 2 from a previous marriage (a boy and a girl).

My baby fever is pretty low at the moment, as I'm very distracted by wedding planning and preparing for married life. But it has been high at times in the past. I'm not sure when we'll start to try. I always thought a year of marriage before trying for kids was ideal, but who knows what will actually happen. Having 2

Hi E! Welcome to the board and congrats on your wedding!

I'm Victoria, also 29, and DH, 42 and I are WTT our first! I don't think 29 is too old, there are plenty of women who have all their kids in their 30's, my grandma was one!

Do you have a TTC date in mind?

Hi Victoria! :) It's so nice to "meet" you. :) I love that you're 29 too, and have a similar age gap with your SO. S and I are about 9 years apart.

I just recently joined this board as well and wanted to say "Welcome!" and "Hello!" I am 32 and hoping to have at least one more child so I agree that you are not too old!
Congrats on the upcoming wedding! I hope everything is working out the way you have envisioned!

Hello and welcome!
I am 35 and I had my son at 34 who was my first child. And we plan on having one more and I will be 36 in September so I am guessing I will probably be at least

Hello to you as well angel! :) It's nice to see so many girls close to my age. I hate looking at TTC boards that only have 22 year olds on them, it makes me feel way behind. ;) I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi Sandy and thanks for the welcome! :) I've read a little bit about your story here and on WTTgrads during my lurking. Thanks for telling me I have plenty of time. Having a first child at 34 sounds perfect to me! I think I'd feel much more prepared then than I do now.

David is adorable by the way. :) How did you decide on how long to wait for #2?

We will be married for five years this year! For me it's the opposite: I sometimes feel like hubby is a big baby and I'm the more mature one, lol. I think he is worried about his age though and has had a lot of baby fever lately. The problem is financial for me as well because DH lost his job for 5.5 months without qualifying for unemployment, so we are almost out of savings. Thank goodness he has a good job now but things are still frugal.

Welcome to the board as well then littlebea :) Good luck with TTC soon! What did it take for you to feel ready? At 29 I still don't feel like an adult yet. ;)
