I found out the day before my 33rd birthday that I was pregnant with my first, so it was a great birthday present! He was born 4 months shy of my 34th birthday. I had been told I'd never have kids, and my husband and I had been married 11 years.

I was 31. We had been trying for 2+ years to get pregnant because I wanted to have my first baby by the time I hit that magical 30. Oh, well. I lived anyway.

I would love to have a baby in my 40s, too, but dh thinks we should have the last one by the time I'm 40. We'll see. I always thought I'd be a young mom (that's what I hoped and dreamed for), but obviously, other plans were at work. I see good and bad to doing it both ways, though. For me, I'm excited that I get to have kids in the house all the way until it's time for retirement. My mom's empty nest at 41 always looked miserable to me.

16. I had my 4th @ 21. I am now 23.

And the person who asked about stories from other young moms - have you checked the *really* young mamas tribe? There are some great mamas on there!

I was 18 for the birth of my first. Turned 19, thirteen days later.

My second was born when I was 22.
