my hubby had his first at 19 and he and I had our first when he was 37
I asked if he was sure he wanted to do this again, since he was almost done with his son. He had no doubt that we were going to have a little girl. He always wanted his own little girl.:

I should have been 26, but DS ended up staying put an extra 11 days, so I was 27.

First baby at 33 (32 week gestation), would have been 34 if the Doc hadn't forced him out.

Looks like the last baby, and it better be the LAST, will be at 44. Surprise surprise!

One month before I turned 23, and two months before dh turned 25. It was a good age for us, we were ready emotionally, but financially, we probably could have waited. Though, I'm of the philosophy that you will never really have enough money. If we would have waited until we were more financially set, we probably would have had a harder time giving up luxuries that we did not have to give up in the first place since we had never had them.
