  • 20, 26. At the time I felt ready, but boy was I wrong! That first one looking back I would have waited until maybe 22, 23.

    At the time I didn't think I was too young, but I see many people my age with kids far younger than mine. Makes me feel sometimes like I was too young.

  • I was 23, 25, 27, 35 and 36. I wish I had waited until my late 20s. I live in a very professional area and most women in their early 20s are getting their career started first. I was (am) always the youngest mom by many years among my oldest kids parents. I'm about right for the youngest 2.
