Totally agree with you nick&jonmom! Life has other plans, and it has nothing to do with our own! Yay! :P

Its wierd... when I'm with the parents of my oldest daughter's peers, I feel like a young mom (she has a lot of friends whose parents are professionals and waited to start their families, so the effect is greater than it might be in less educated, different demographic group.) With my second, I'm still a little younger than average. With this one (#4), I think I've reached the point that I'm one of the older ones, maybe closer to average depending on the group and whether you're talking about a first baby or a third. That's what you get when there are more than 11 years between #1 and #4!

I'm 33.

I had my first child in 1987! And my uhhhh, last?? will be in 2010!! One very proud, hip, very hot mama!

I'm 22, will be 23 on my baby's due date - March 18th!

I'm getting married in two weeks!!!

I know everyone is going to think we are getting married because we are pregnant, but we know differently, and thats okay with me.

We talked about marriage, and having a family is very important to me, so we wanted to make sure we could!! And, we got pregnant with ease, and here we are!

Just got my gown today, with my baby bump pushing the seams I had to get it tailored a little.

**sigh** IM SO EXCITED!!!
