Are you under 24 and having your third or more?

  • I'm turning 23 in November and I've got a 2 1/2 y/o, 1 1/2 y/o, and 6 month old. Even though everyone knows we plan on having a large family we've still gotten grief for every one after the first. I personally can't wait to have more =)

  • I'm 22 and I have a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old and a 3 almost 4 yr old stepson.
    I'm happy where my life is and I think I was meant to have my children (both failed BC) I don't care what my family thinks or anyone else. As long as I love and take care of my children, that's what matters.

  • I was under 24 with 3 at one time. I am now 26 with 4. I would love one more, but my health just won't let me.

  • I had my first at 23. I know some of our family thought we were too young, but we were already married five years by then. I generally don't have an opinion about when others are having their babies if they are good parents. My husband's biological mother was a mess. My husband was her third child and his dad was her fourth husband, and she was only 22! She's had four kids and was married and divorced five times in her early twenties. That's an extreme I have an opinion about. Otherwise, take care of your kids and have a happy life. :) Screw people who are too concerned about how others are living their lives.

  • Where I am a little past 24 now, I had 3 by the time I was 22. I have 4 great kids now. I want to retire (hopefully) by the time I am 60ish. I needed to have my babies when I was young.

  • I am 24 have a 3.5 yr old and an almost 1 yr old (next week :( ) we are TTC baby #3. My family is very religous so they were not happy at first but they love the boys and have learned to accept that I am who i am and that is not changing.

  • I had my 1st son at 18, my 2nd son at 19 && now I'm pregnant with my 1st daughter && she will be born 2 weeks before my 22nd birthday. Our families don't agree but we wanted our children close together and we wanted to be young parents. This is however our last. I want to be able to live comfortably and allow my children to enjoy life.
