When my child was born, I was 29 years old. Finally I could finish one important thing before I was 30.

When I was born,my mama was 28 years old.At that time in China,a 28 years old pregnant woman was rare. Most women got married early and born baby early.

When I was born, my mom was also 28 years old. When my son was born, I was 29. I am from China, too. It's common that today here women deliver their children later. I have friends who haven't got married yet. Lately I have a friend who has been pregnant for two months. By the way, today is my 32th birthday:)

Happy birthday to you!!!! Yes,today in China,woman would rather to be pregnant when they are over 28years old,especially in big cities.In my opinion,women become more and more excellent today and "family" isn't the final dream for them. The pregnant women's age get incease in recent years. Or even some women don't want to bear baby.

I was 28 when my first was born, well I was in my 29th year, just a few months off of it. Then at 30 my husband passed away suddenly and now I am due with baby number 2 with my boyfriend and I will be 31 at delivery. Very excited, but also feel somewhat guilty that I have moved on. I miss my husband terribly, but know he would want me to move on and be happy.

I was 34 when my little one was born. It's a little later than I would have liked but that's how it worked out for me. I hope to have my next one before I turn 38!!!

I was 22 when my daughter was born. It was the most important achievement of my life. We tried so hard to have a baby and finally she came along! We were absolutely thrilled that she came into our lives.

My first was born when I was 24 and my second when I was 26. :-) I wanted to have mine before I turned 30 for the very same reason as you. Now they're ages seven and five . . . and give me many "Calgon, Take Me Away" moments. :-)

I was twenty when my first was born. It is a family thing. For some reason I don't believe that any of the women in my family have gotten past the age of 21 without the birth of their first child.

It sounds a little bit early for me. As I was still in the school when I was 21:)

I had mine when I was 24 years old and now he is already working as a geophycists in one of the French here. If you start to have children early you will reap the benefit earlier.
