At what age did you have your firsh child?

I was young when I started. At first I had a miscarriage at age 16. I didn't even know I was pregnant. Well I think I did but living with my grandma I was afraid to even imagine that I was. I had my first child at 18. It was a boy. He was the greatest joy of my life and not to say that I don't love my other children, but it would be a lot easier if it was still just him. But I DO LOVE MY BABIES!!! They bring such a postiveness to my life and I never know whats going to happen next.

  • i had my son when i was 17, and yep it would be easier, i love my other kids as much. but i had my son, gained alot of wieght and it was so easy to lose it. to go walking to get someone to babysit so i could go walking, to go to the store.... i have 2 more kiddos and i love them more than anything. it is so hard to get someone to babysit!!! i gained weight again and it seems impossible to lose it.. its so hard to get help too. but where would we be without them?! so anyhow 2 months before i turned 18

  • I know what your talking about with having it easier with 1, but you love your other kids you wouldn't change a thing. I have 3, think back of having only one and think wow I thought THAT was hard?? LOL.

    I had my first at 20, got pregnant at 19 and she was a unexpected bundle of joy. I was just dating my now husband of 6 years, a few months and I thought WHOA when I found out I was preg. I wasn't upset, or anything since I loved him having us talk of long term relationship with kids. I agree with you never know what will happen with kids, got to roll with it and hope it's a good day lol. Oh an that they don't break, or make a major mess you can't clean up.
