Ok this one is really simple but amazing to see the variation, I think we may have a full 20 year spread!

How Old Will You Be When Your Baby Is Born?







I'll be 36 personally, never the age i though i would be when i had my 1st

partners.gif 2twins.gif  So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!

I'll be 37. I always said I wanted to be done by 35, but someone had other plans.

I'll be 39, if #2 comes on time. I am due 2 weeks before my 40th birthday. I had #1 when I was 36.

i hear "AMA" a few times with moms over 35, i knew we got red flagged in a way, but i was not under the impression at all that we were actually "AMA" is means "Against Medical Advice" for those that don't know.

I was under the impression too - since they wrote it very big in my medical chart and I did nothing against medical advice (even though I probably should have!)

oh thanks for that knock in the memory, of course you are right!

yep i am sadly of Advanced Maternal Age as will, i get bummed that it is the same letters as the "other" AMA and i hate that my birthday alone has put me into a category that they want to interfere with more.

Yup, AMA here too. There seems to be quite a few old ladies here.

I swear I have also heard the term "elderly" used as well.

Aww...I'll be 25..and I'm so glad we started young as well! I had DD when I was 22 (and we were trying). How many kids would you like to have? I never thought I'd be a SAHM either..but I sure wouldn't have it any other way!!

I've always wanted 4 kids and to be done by 30. I don't think that will
be happening. I turn 26 the following June.

I'll be 22. I'm fully expecting the "but you're SO YOUNG" comments from my family, but this baby was very much planned and wanted and I know it's the right decision!

I'll be 25... This is my third baby. I started young... I don't think I'd do it differently, though I totally respect the joys and challenges of having a baby in any age bracket. This is probably the last baby for us, so I'm really going to enjoy the whole process... And be glad that I'll be done with the teeny-tinys by the time I am thirty.

Hey, Xtara... We share a due date! Three cheers for a cuspie baby. Though I thoroughly expect to over-bake. *haha*

This is a hard question

My due date by ovulation is Dec 30, and by LMP (what the midwife is using) is Jan 4. My 27th birthday is Jan 2nd. I said 27 in the poll, regardless, I'll be practically 27!
