  • I didn't plan on having children when I found out I was pregnant at 21, but 14 years later I can't imagine not having my son when I did. They grow fast and he has made my life complete.

  • I always knew I wanted kids. As soon as I was married we tried for kids.

  • LOL...when I found out that I was going to have a baby. I was WAY too young at 18, but something inside me gathered up my courage and strength and grew up fast. I am now 33 and I have 4 kids and have been married for 14 years. I wasnt going to be another statistic and I am not. Really I think women should get through some college and really look at their life and decide how they want it to be before they start a family. Maybe 25 ish.

  • Honestly, probably around 10. I have thought about having my own kids as long as I can remember basically. But then again, I have also been mommy to a kid since I was about 10 too.

  • I didn't give it serious thought until I was in my late 20's. I was sick of the dating scene, had been for years but couldn't seem to find a guy who was wanting to settle down. I don't find men in their late 20's and early 30's still partying and messing around to be very attractive. Then I met my DH and we decided to just let whatever happen after we got married. It happened before we'd been married for one year.
