How old were you when you had your first child?

Were you married?

I had my son when I just 4 days shy of my 19th birthday. I was a junior in high school. I decided to just drop out and take care of myself and my son. He is two now. I got my GED almost a year ago.

  • I had my first little ones when I was 22. I had been married for two years before I had her and now we are past the six year mark. I wish that I could make time go by slower or even turn it back because my little one is now four and she is too big.

  • I still havnt had my own child. I turn 22 next month on the 18th. I have a step son who is 3yo. My DH is in the military and we want to TTC on his R&R. If we accomplish this then the baby will be born the month of my 23rd birthday.
