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 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 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!

I was 30 for DD (she turned 2 recently) and I should be 32 for baby #2 in late July or early August. My birthday is in mid August but baby better come before that or we'd be flirting with 43.5 weeks - something I'm not at all comfortable with!

I was 31 when I had my first, a boy. Was supposed to be 35 for second child but she came two months early, so 34.
