This. A thousand times this. I was always fairly wary of babies, never really keen on being a mother. I always wanted to be a career woman and my husband has always been keen on a family. Then one day I just started to really want a baby, like really, achingly wanting a baby.

I hope so! That was kind of my intention, to have everyone chat about their experiences, why they are waiting, what concerns/worries they have etc and for the thread to evolve as people leave to actually start TTC. We'll see though! ;)

This is very true too. Most of our friends with children began having them while they were still renting, and there will always be reasons not to timing wise!
I'm the same age as you Whereland, and I definitely agree that time is on your side when you're still in your 20s. I also have loads of anxiety relating to fertility, as there are infertility issues on both my and my husband's side of the family. I just hope to god we don't experience them, and there's no way to find out until we start to try!
