How old are you? - Page 2

post #21 of 44
I was 26 when conceived ds and 27 when he was born. I was 28 when we conceived our dd and am now 29. I don't think there's a too young or a too old age, unless the parents themselves make that determination OF themselves (not of others). Love is ageless.

I'm a may/june expectant mama, thought I'd chime in here.

I'm twenty, will (hopefully, as my birthday is May 8 and the edd is June 1) be twenty-one when the baby arrives. This will be the first for me and my husband, who is twenty-seven, will be twenty-eight Feb 14.

I want to give some encouragement to Lovechild and thank Natashacat for her views on the "too-young" school of thought. That makes sense to me. However, I have always 'just' wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and even though this pregancy was unplanned it is very welcomed and I'm very glad that things are working out so that I can stay at home and raise the kiddo and any siblings happen along! I don't encounter much criticism about my age.. I'm not showing clothed yet, I'm only about 13 weeks, and I haven't really told anyone other than family and a few coworkers, and they're all very excited and supportive.

Anyways, hi and congrats to all you April mamas: )

I'm still considered in the *too young* category. I am 22 and will still be 22 when the baby is born. Dh is and will be 27.I was 18 when I got pregnant with my first and she was born 2 weeks before I turned 19, dh was 24when she was born. I was 19 when I got pregnant with ds, and 20 when he was born and dh was almost 26. I still get comments on being too young. It really makes me crazy.

I turned 21 12 days before DS was born. I only got a few comments. My parents both thought I was too young, until Marcus was born, LOL! Then they thought it was the greatest thing I'd ever done! Especially since I went back and finished my degree.

I'll be (am now) 29 when this one comes. DH will be either 29 or 30 (he's an April fool B-day). He was only 18 when his DD was born.

I just turned 30 ...so will still be 30 when this next little potato is born ...was 27 (I think? LOL) when dd was born

Most of the mama's I know IRL are older than myself ... late thirties and early 40's

I always thought I'd have my first at 25 and all of them before I was 30 (I'm only a year off schedule LOL)

I was 23 with DD # 1 ( turned 24 , 5 weeks later)

25 with dd #2

and I just turned 28 and will still be 28 when this baby comes
post #27 of 44
I'm 31 and will be 31 when the baby is born. DH is/will be 32. Our DD will be just over 3 years old.

I was NOWHERE near ready for a baby in my early 20s . . . (am I ready now?). I give the younger mamas here all the credit in the world!

For me, the older mom thing (not that I consider myself one) has never been an issue. My mom was 41 when I was born. The only thing that makes me "worry" for older moms is the TTC issue. But, that being said-- you're ready when you're ready, and really nothing can change that. Bottom line: age is irrelevant!

Hi :-)

I'm 29, and 19 weeks along with my first. DH and I wanted some time together before we started having kids. We'll be married almost 7 years when baby is due on April 25th, and together for 9 years.

Congrats to all the other April mammas to be!

18 years 10 months with first pregnancy which miscarried. Husband was 31.2
20 years and 20 days old when my first child was born. Husband was 32.4
21 years and 4 months when second child was born. Husband was 33.8

I will be 23 years and 9 months old if I go full-term with the twins I am carrying now. My husband will be 36 and 1 month old.

Do people think I'm too young to be having children? 4 kids at 23 years old...yes! Until they get to know me then they tell me this is just what I was destined to do...and they are right.

Crazy, your oldest is only a couple of weeks older than my oldest, you have boy/girl twins which I am expecting and are also due 5 days after me! We have a lot in common.

LOL, the funny looks when by yourself. I get those. I need to start remembering to wear my wedding ring. :LOL

My husband and I are just three weeks apart--we're both 32. We felt ready to have kids a couple of years ago but it took us a while to conceive. We're very excited about welcoming our first!

When I was in my early and mid-twenties, I was convinced I didn't have what it took to be a good mother and determined not to have kids. But how quickly that changed once I hit my late twenties! I definitely felt something biological happening in me, and the urge for kids was irresistible. We waited until we felt financially ready to start trying, though.

I just turned 27 in February, and DH was 26 in December.

We're too young. At least that's how I'm feeling just about now!

Edited to add that I don't think that EVERYONE having kids our age or younger is too young. Just that I'm feeling VERY overwhelmed right now and nervous about the whole thing.

I'm 22 and so is my husband. This is our first baby. The ladies I know in real life are anywhere from 22 to 30.
post #38 of 44
I am 20 and will be 21 when our babe is born.
Derek will be 22.
It's our first.


In real life, I had a friend who is turning 19 tomorrow, and just had a baby 3 months ago (gave him up for adoption). I also have another friend who is 19 and due in April. I have a friend who is 35 and due the same day as me. I just pretty much know a lot of pregnant girls =)
