younger mamas/to be? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
I don't know how young you mean, but I am 24 and pregnant with our 3rd. I had our second at 23 and our first at 21. I may even be expecting twins this time. I have my first u/s this coming Wed. I can't wait!

I am thrilled to be a mother at this age. I think it just makes sense, for us

Ok...I'm nowhere near young...i think I even read that I'm a "mature" mother. That made me laugh because I feel so young! I'm 34, and expecting my 3rd...10 years after the first. I never imagined having a baby at this age, yet when I had my first I was in graduate school, at 24, and everyone said we were so young and what the heck were we doing(we married when I was 19)! So now they've had their kids, are done, and I'm having #3! I'll be well into my 50s when these guys move out! It was so awesome to have kids when I had that much energy, and pregnancy was SO much easier!

Really? I'm 21 and half my graduating class has kids! I guess cause it's the "trendy" thing to do now? Or maybe just because I'm from one of "those" towns, where only the really smart kids go to college (our valedictorian went to junior college) and all there is for everyone else to do is either start a family or work the drive thru.

I'm from a big city so that may be it... Most of my friends went to college, then grad school and are just now starting families. Actually, more than half of my old friends don't even have a child yet. I'm definitely the odd man out.

My high school friends are TTC their first and I'm pg with my third...after two years of TTC. I'm excited that now maybe they'll finally "get" what I've been doing for the past 10 years, ya know?!?

Wow Charmie! I think I am following in your footsteps married at 19, had my first at 21 and I am going to have my second at 23.
