  • Nope. I have one son and I'm 26 but I plan to have another child in a couple years. With the economy the way it is at this time I think it unwise to have a huge family unless you are well off and are able to provide everything the children need.

  • I did. My twins were born when I was 23, and my third baby was born when I was 24 :)

  • I had my 3rd child when I was 22. Some things are out of our control, regardless of the economy... And not because of irresponsible behavior. I would have loved to plan things differently, but that simply was never possible with my ex husband. When I tried to leave, I wound up pregnant- twice, and not by my choosing if you get my drift.

  • Yes ma'am! I was 19 when I had my first, 21 when I had my second and 4 days from being 23 when I had my third and last child! This was all by choice. My husband and I have been married for over 20 years now. All my children are happy and healthy. I have one in college, one about to graduate high school and get married, and one who is now driving. I am 38 years old and when my youngest is 18 I will only be 41! I am looking forward to playing with my grandchildren while I am still young.

  • Not me, I didn't have our first until I was 24 and had our last when I was 31 (5 total).

  • Well I had my first at 19, second at 21, married my dh at 22 (who had 4 from a previous marriage) and twins at 23. So I have 8 under my roof 4 of my own by the time I was 23 and loving every moment of it. :)
