35 and no babies yet

Hi everyone, well the thing is I'm 35 ( I'll be 36 next July) and I'm not sure if I really want babies. I just want to know how did you realise that you were ready? I've start to feel a bit nervous about this topic as I'm getting old... I would like to know your opinions. Thanks!

Hi Swani,
I know this may not be the response you were looking for but my answer is :
You just know!
Having Kids is something you either want or not and if you aren't so sure about it then maybe you should not have any. Because you have to commit to it 100%+ for the rest of your life.
Although I do know ppl who thought they don't want kids but accidentally fell pregnant and said, they couldn't imagine their lives w/o their kids now.

I believe it's just a matter of timing. As the other person mentioned, I was one of those people who didn't want kids. I ended up getting pregnant and my husband and I couldn't imagine our lives any differently. Parenting is a lifetime commitment as well as a gift. I personally believe it is all in the way you handle it. Having a child is truly a blessing. Before I had my son I was petrified about ever becoming a parent since I didn't have the best childhood, but now that he is here, I realized that the cycle of baggage that I've grown to learn could be broken. There will definitely be some challenging moments of each stage was your child's development but the love, joy and pride you have for your child will surmount any of those trying times. Keep in mind thAt you are your child's first teacher (literally their first everything) so you will want to be cognizant of your actions and words. Just remember to lead by example.

Take your time and enjoy yourself because the time you have now will seem like a lifetime ago when you have kids. Children do change your life but I personally think it is for the better.

Do what you feel is best. Good luck on your decision.

Hi there. I'm 32 and for the longest time have said I dont want kids. I don't know what happened to me this year but I feel like I'm ready to be a mom. We are trying for a baby now and I'm on fertility supplements. Can't wait to experience pregnancy and to be a mommy. I'm praying for twins.

I'm 35. For as long as I can remember I knew I never wanted kids. Up until about a year and a half ago, I just suddenly knew I wanted to have a baby. We just got married and are now trying. I've read at this age it could be difficult, I'm hoping not!

So, I think.... you just KNOW when you want to have kids. It hit me out of nowhere.
