I'll be 37. I always said I wanted to be done by 35, but someone had other plans. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

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 will be 24 - not the age that I thought I would be when trying for my second <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But so very happy we decided to start young! I never thought I would be a SAHM, either!

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!<br><br>
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.<br><br>
I swear I have also heard the term "elderly" used as well.

I narrowly fit into the 27-29 age range. My DD is the 20th or 21st and my 30th birthday will be the 29th!

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!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
