Trying to conceive

Quick question - Would you say 24 is too early to be pregnant?
I am 23 now but will be 24 in May which is 3 months time. My partner is 32 but we both have stable jobs and good wages. We both have a mortgage on our house as well.
We are thinking of ttc possibly near towards end of the year so if we did concieve (fingers crossed) once I come off my Mini pill I would be 25 when baby is born.
What do you think? Do you think this would be acceptable? I am just conscious of family thoughts etc.

Arcadia, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, if you and your partner are ready for a baby and are financially stable who cares :) I was 20 (21 when born) when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter she’s now 3 im now 18+3 weeks pregnant with a little boy & I’ll be 25 in May, I’ve never had any judgement from anyone for being to young! Having said that my stepdad did think I shouldn’t have my daughter because I was still living at home at the time however he is the one that wants Her attention all the time, always puts money in her bank account and was constantly asking when I’d have a second one 😂 and now if I reminded him of what he had said he would probably go back in time and slap himself! People may have an opinion but it’s none of there business family or not :)

There is no right age to have a child 😊 I know some very immature 40 year old and some very mature 18 year olds.... good luck!

Means a lot. Just my mother in law advises to wait a couple more years but i guess she only cares? I just wanna do the right thing thats all but we are both happy :). I mean my mum was married at 21 and had me at 23! Times change.
We are just renovating our house first before we start. Just wondered what people think to see if age wise is "too young".

I was 18 when I got pregnant with my first child and I am now pregnant with babies 3 and 4 at 26. My fiancé has a good job and we love and support our children. It is up to you the best time to start your family.
