To those who want children? Watch

I honestly find it so alien to hear people who are my age (roughly) talking about having/wanting kids so soon. Bizarre.
I would start trying at 30 and adopt if I didn't get there by 36ish. What's the big deal about making the kid yourself?
however, I would aim for late 20s/early 30s, if not adoption?
Who knows what'll really happen!
i'll be ok with having a child at age 22+ and i'm not having sex before then because of that reason so if i do happen to get pregnant then at least i have a degree behind me.
But, after I hit 25, I might consider it.
That way theres chance to finish my degree etc and be secure in things.
I'd probably stop trying for children at around 45. I do want children though, and if I couldn't have one of my own I'd aim to adopt in my early 40s.
When I was little I always wanted to be married at 20 and have 2 children by the time I'm 25.
Now I'm 23 and sadly there's still no sign of him!
I'm only starting Uni in September and I might do a postgrad course and want to enjoy a bit of a postgrad career first, so perhaps I'll have one at 28 and one at 30 ideally. And I want to be married first.
If I was having problems I'd stop trying for a baby at 35, unless I was very desperate, then I'd carry on until I was 40.
It's difficult to predict how life will turn out.
Just to even things up a bit - I'm in my late twenties, have 4 kids aged 6 and under, a 2:1 from Sheffield University a good (ish) job and am just starting to think about a masters. Voila All done and dusted whilst I'm young and able! I won't be a doddery old mum or having to take a career break just as my career is taking off...
