I think you'll just know when you are ready, but your partner must be ready also. You say you've been together 5 years and no baby yet, if he's not ready you need to be using a reliable form of birth control or you could find your self pregnant and single.

I never thought of having kids as a next step, because I had done everything else. I just wanted to be a mom.

You will never be financially "ready" as kids are a hugh wallet drain. They scream, they cry, they puke, poop and pee on you, they deprive you of sleep and push you to the edge of sanity. And then your 17 year old son sits on the sofa next to you, puts his head on your shoulder and tells you he loves you and your an awesome mom. My 9 year "needs" her daily snuggles, and writes my notes and hides them in my lunch. So worth those early years...plus now I get to wake the 17 year old up early.

I was 28 when I had my son, and I don't know if I would have had the maturity to make it through the 1st three years in my early 20's.
