I Don't Feel the Clock Ticking

I Don't Feel the Clock Ticking

In the past few years my closest friends and younger sister have all gotten married and started having children. I am excited for them all and thrilled to be starting my life with my loving husband, but I don't feel an urgency to have children just yet. I adore my niece and kids in general and know my time will come and it is important for me to make choices for my life, but somehow, my sister and friends think there is something wrong with me. They are constantly making note of "how fun it would be" if I got pregnant now so our children would be close in age. It's a sweet thought, but pretty presumptuous (I think!). How do I tell them I don't feel ready for children without sounding insecure?
