Had my first kid at 31. I think it was a good time, although sometimes I wish I could have one earlier, but not too much earlier. Mainly because if you want more, you start getting into the 32, 34, 36 age range depending on how many you want. But again, there is no magic age.
But let me say this. Just from personal experience and knowing others, sometimes kids don't come when you want them to. And I'm not talking about the "mistakes". I know a ton of people that it took a year, 2 or even 3 of trying before they could concieve their first child, and some just gave up after years of trying. I've learned, there is a reason it's called a "miracle". It truly is, and sometimes it works timing it out, but a lot of the time, it is totally out of your control.
