How old were you when you had your first baby?

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 

Mother's Day is this weekend. Reminds me of my very first! I was just turned 21 and soooo excited to be a mom.  He's now nearly 17! I wonder where the time went?!

 

How old were you when you had your first baby?

My first was born two weeks before I turned 21. He was a nice birthday present! smile.gif I also have two step-children who I have raised as my own, and I've had them since I was 19. I'm 32 now.

I was 38 when I got pregnant for the first and only time. An "old mom"!

I have had 3 boys at 20, 22 and 25. :) Good thing too since I was recently diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis.

We were both 25.  This baby I'm 28 and DH is about a month shy of 28.  We're hoping to squeeze in one more before 30, then be done!

I'm going to be 25 when I have my first. My birthday is June 6th and she's due July 20th.

I'm 24 and will still be when I deliver in August or September!. I hope to have 2 or 3 children and complete my family before I turn 30. wink1.gif In a perfect world, of course.

I was 18 when I gave birth to my DD. My DS was born one day after my 24th birthday.

I will be just shy of 26 when DD is born this July. It's weird because I feel so adult and ready, but at all the places I've met other moms (meetup groups, prenatal yoga, birthing class) I am usually the youngest by 5-10 years!! The world sure has changed, but it looks like I'm more in the middle of this group!

yeahthat.gif  It was exactly the same for me (I was 26 when my son was conceived/born). smile.gif  I'm so glad I had him when I did - I had already been planning a future with amazing DH, and I had so much more energy to deal with no sleep - noticeably more than I do even now, at 29!

Another  "old" mama here.I had turned 39 just over a month before our first LO was born. Now she's nearly six months old. How time flies...how my back aches. :D

29 with #1, 31 with #2 and 33 for #3...... hoping for 36 for #4 (although dh says no more...)

I will be very close to 22 when I deliver my first in late November or early December. :)
