Got pregnant while 20 was 21 when I had little A.

She is a home birth, BF, co-sleeping baby and I am always happy to meet really young mommies like me who AP.

I was 20 when DD was born. I'm 22 now and expecting my second child in November. I'm always the youngest at PGs and usually on the messageboards too. Oh well, LOL.

I was 28 and felt totally ready. I am glad I waited. I was pretty wild when I was younger.

I am expecting my first one in few weeks - I am 28 and I still feel like I could have waited. I feel mature to have a child, but I certainly could be enjoying life only with my DH for couple more years....

I was 19 when I had DD. It was definitely a good time for DH and I (he was 20) simply because we felt ready and adore having little ones around, but I have to admit it made finishing school just a tad bit more challenging. I am now 21 and we will both graduate from college this December

I was 23 when Thomas was born, and Matt was 25. We'll probably be 25/6 and 27/8 with the next one.

I was 27 when Katie was born. (I'm 28 now). We think she might be our one and only, but if we have another, it won't be for a few years, so I'll be at least 30 when we have #2, if there is a #2...
