How old were you had your children? I know that everyone has them as all different ages. I was 24 when I had my first child, and 27 when I had my second child. I'm not sure how old I'll be when, or if, we have another child.

Well, congratulations that you were able to have a child. Some people who are told they could never have children, never do. You definitely beat the odds with this one.

I was 22 when I had my first child. I was 25 when I miscarried my second child, and that nearly devastated me. I had my last child when I was 26. And I am as done as done can be at this point.

I was pregnant last year, but I miscarried after a few weeks. It didn't effect me to much, not that I'm trying to make light of it or anything, but I guess I can't really taken it all in yet.

I am actually pregnant at the moment. I'm just about 4 months along and 21 years old. I don't think an age really matters after 18 as long as you are prepared for a pregnancy. I definitely wasn't prepared and neither was my boyfriend who is 3 years younger than me.

I definitely agree with you there. Even though you weren't prepared when you got pregnant, I hope you're doing so now. I definantly recommend apply for WIC if you can. That'll get you the milk and stuff you need. Check out all the available programs that are out there. I'm sure you don't need this information. You probably already know it. However, it's better to have the information, and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

I've had four children...the first at 22 and the last one at 35. There's an 8 year age gap between her and her nearest sibling...she was a surprise package!

My husband was a surprises package too. My youngest sister-in-law was 8-years-old when he was born.

I was 17 when I had my first daughter. I was 18 when I had my middle daughter. I was then 21 when I had my last daughter. I started kinda young.

So you kinda grew up with your kids. That can be a good thing, depending on how you're handling things.

I just had my first baby this year, and I'm 30 now. I will wish to have my second and third child before I'm 36 years old, that means the age gap of them is about 2-3 years.

I had my first child at 23 and my second child when I was 25. We have both boys so we might try for a girl in the future. We don't intend to have any kids soon so I think I would probably be in my 30s when I have my third one. Hopefully we will have a girl because that's it. We only want a maximum of 3 kids.

I had my first at 26, my 2nd @ 29 (took 7 long months to get pg w/ her) & my last @ 31. I said I wanted to be done before I was 32 & definatly before 35 as one becomes highrisk automatically after 35.

I had my first daughter when I was 21 and my second daughter when I was 24. It was good being young raising two girls. Then when they reached 18 I was only reaching 40 which is still quite young.

I was 21 when I had my first child. That kind of stunk because I was pregnant when I turned 21. Then I was 23 when I had my second child. Almost 25 though because my birthday was 2 months later. Then with my 3rd child I was 26. That is it for us. We are done having kids. We have talked about adoption at some point to give kids a home, but we aren't sure if we can do it financially.
