I was and still am 34 when dd was born.
I'm glad I waited because I did alot of fun things in those years, traveled, studied, etc.
Now I enjoy being a SAHM. Earlier I might have felt like I was missing out on life. But being a mom is the best thing yet for me. I could say that it has almost been like a rebirth for me too!
I love my dd more than anything!

I was 25 when I had my first and will be 27 with the second.
I've met many moms from early to mid 20's through early to mid 30's seems like we are all the same age to me...I don't really notice any differences in age. If you're chasing a toddler then you're chasing a toddler!

I was 27 when I had my first, 29 when I had my second. So grateful I had them at this age, just perfect for me although I would have told you 10 years ago that I was ready!

I was:

17 with my first, junior in highschool.

19 with my second

25 with my third

I will be 27 with my fourth and my last.

Feel like a youngin here I can say, it was a different world when I had my third.

I had my ds Jakob a little over 4 months ago when I was 25, I just turned 26 last week.

My sister-in-law is 28 and she had a baby one hour after I did. Most of the pregnancy we were able to talk to each other and be there for each other. She was in New York for the last 3 months though, and gave birth up there, me down here in FL. She got back here this month, it will be nice to have someone who shares similar beliefs close by.

and teen moms/former teen moms

I was 27 (still am) when I had my first. I *feel* kind of young to have a child, since I don't really have any friends with children. But I think this was a good age to have my babe.

Assuming things go well over the next 7+ months, I'll be 25 when I have my first. I'm hoping to go a few days late and hit my half birthday 3/1.

Two days before my twenty-first birthday!

No bar hopping for me, I was drunk on baby!

Just had my first at 33, but I turned 34 a week ago!
post #115 of 131
I had my first when I was 15 (ya, yipes!), my second at a few days shy of 21 and my third at a few months shy of 27. I plkan on having one more in 3 1/2 to 5 years (depending on how things go) so I will be 30-32 or so when my last is born.

It has been interesting and I would not trade a moment!

My mom was 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 34, and 37 when she had her large family.

She bf'ed inbetween each.

I was 16 with my first (he just turned 12!), 19 with my second, and 27 with my third. That last little one snuck in there because I was told I couldn't have anymore children. lol

I'm finished having babies and it seems that they all came along when they were meant to and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Had my first when I was 25, and my second at nearly 28. I am one of the only people in my circle of friends who has kids.

I love it. I will be 44 when ds will be in college. My prime! Although, I've felt like an outcast with my friends my age. Most of my friends today are in their 40's. We had children together. I'm 31 now.
