  • I was 19 when I got pregnant with my first child, 20 when I had him.  I'm good with the age I was.  :)

  • I was 22, and I wish I had been younger... I think around 17 or so would have been better for me.

  • I was 32. I don't have regrets. I know I am a much better parent than I would have been any earlier.

  • I was 21, when I had my first child....I had my 2nd and 3rd at 28, & 30, and I think that was a better age, but I can't imagine not having my first.

  • he was born 2 weeks after my 23rd b-day. My regret is that I'd only been married 10 months at the time, LOL. we had no real alone time.... on our 1 yr wedding anniversary I still couldn't even have intercourse. That timing is all a regret, but not the baby and my age there

  • Just for the record I'm 27 and just had number 3 last month... And I am honestly terrified about trying to be a mom to a new baby at this age. I am WAY to old for this. I love my baby, but I really wish they had tied my tubes like I wanted at 23...
