I'm 29, but this is my 3rd, I had my first two at 23 and 25, so I was pretty young the first time around.

I'm 23 -- but most moms in San Francisco are atleast in their 30s, from like 30-43 having their first babies... so I kind of feel like a loner... and people are VERY ageist...when one girl found out I was pregnant (she overheard me)-- she asked "....are you gonna keep it?"...omg... I have been married over 3 years and this was planned, so YES, I'm "gonna keep it" lol...

I can relate, but not because of MY age (I'm 35) When my niece was 18 and pregant she was asked that same question a lot... despite being much more mature for her age (so it would be hard to guess she was that young at the time) and in a very stable relationship and doing well for themselves! I live just a few hours south of you on the Monterey Peninsula.

I'm 36.

I lived in Fremont, CA, for my first 3 babies (I was born at Kaiser Hayward and so were they, and I was raised in Fremont too). 1st was born a month after I turned 17, 2nd a month after I turned 19, 3rd when I was 25. My last two were born here in WA... I was 28 for #4 and 30 for #5.

No one asked me if I was keeping my baby. I looked about 21 when I was 16. My oldest is now in college, my second is a junior in HS, then a 5th grader and 1st grader, the 5 year-old starts kindergarten next Sept. The age cut off for school is Sept. 1st here (must be 5 by then), unlike CA where it was by Dec. 1st. Ugh!

Sad but funny story... When I wheeled into my post-partum room at Kaiser for my first, there were 5 other girls who came on to the floor there from my highschool who had their babies within a few hours after I had my son... Can I say that it was boring in Fremont back then?

I'm 40, and will be 41 when this baby arrives.

I always intended to be done having my four kids by the time I was about 31 or 32. Things didn't quite work out...something about the 10 year age gap between my first and my second.

ilanarose, my first pregnancy (and miscarriage) occurred at 22, and even now at 24 I've been getting similar attitudes. All the moms I know are much older than I am, and even my own mother thinks i should wait another 8 years, at least, before I have children.
