What were you doing or what do you hope to be doing?
I turned 28 yesterday and I'm just wondering really.

I had DS1 just after I turned 29.

Happy birthday, btw! flowers

I got married at the start of my 27th year and had a baby 9 months later.
Not planned but I was very happy.

Oh hey! I just turned 29. Will follow because why not.

Roughly a month before my 29th birthday we bought our house, five days after my birthday I had my lovely ds.

Happy birthday op, we all do things differently and have different hopes and expectations smile.

I moved to another country, worked a bit then got my masters.

MonkeyPuddle Sun 22-Nov-20 01:24:36

At 28 I was just finishing uni, getting divorced and moving counties to start my new career.
Happy birthday!

Has DC 2 at 28 and moved abroad when she was 3months old

Hotelhelp Sun 22-Nov-20 01:44:29

By 28 I already had two children in primary school and got married that year.

I had a 3 year old when I was 28 and just finished my nursing degree

I was travelling after a very painful breakup. It was a brilliant year where I learnt so much about life and myself.
Coming back was unbelievably shit though!

OneKeyAtATime Sun 22-Nov-20 02:07:28

Got married and managwdcto secure a good job after years of precarious fixed term contracts.

PenguinErector Sun 22-Nov-20 02:24:51

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your time and don't feel you need to compare with others.

Fwiw at 28 i got married and was very happy because DH got the snip 😁 Other than that not much really!

ParkheadParadise Sun 22-Nov-20 02:32:31

At 28 I was happily living with Dd1. She was 13 at the time.
I would go on a works night out and meet DH. Our lives changed completely after meeting him.

HollyBollyBooBoo Sun 22-Nov-20 02:51:23

Married and trying for a baby.

FlowerTink Sun 22-Nov-20 02:56:52

At 28 I had a young DD and was trying for another. We had our 2nd the year after.

Five years out of university with an MSc, just about to launch a freelance consultancy career that saw me through the next ten years or so before I went back into employment.

What exactly is it that you want to know, OP?

monkeytennis97 Sun 22-Nov-20 03:06:20

Mum to toddler, pregnant with DC2. Teaching part time.

Finfintytint Sun 22-Nov-20 03:15:36

At 27 I had DS and at 29 joined the police having left my teaching career. Now 54.

I was trying to be a lesbian. Not very good at it. Lived in a huge house share. Didn't become me until in my 30s. Did have my career sorted though.

RedDiamond Sun 22-Nov-20 03:18:57

Hey Up! I am a totally different generation to you. What was "right" for me then is not what I would want for my daughter now.

I married at 26 (after 9 years of living together), had a daughter at 28 and a second child at 31. Biologically every thing can wait so much longer nowadays. I do not want my daughter having to feel she HAS to settle for a Father for her child. It can wait.

Like most things, you tend to get better at it the more you practice. wink

MerchantOfVenom Sun 22-Nov-20 03:39:38

Having lots of responsibility-free fun! That’s what your 20s - early and late - are for.

You have the entire rest of your life - literally decades - for settling down and being responsible.

I got together with DH a few days after I turned 30.

4amWitchingHour Sun 22-Nov-20 03:50:21

Id just met my now DH after leaving an abusive relationship the year before, was working at an organisation I loved but in a frustratingly easy role which they wanted to keep me in with little chance of progression, and was in the process of buying a flat using shared ownership. 28 was when my life started on the track to where I am now (at 34)
