How old were you when you had your first child or how old will you be when your first is born?

Also was it planned? Was it a happy suprise? What were your first thoughts?

I just want to know your story :) I will go first...

I am expecting my first soon after I turn 31. Mine is a happy surprise since I was told I could not get pregnant without medical intervention.

  • I am due with my first on Nov. 9th. I'm 22 and my husband is 27. It wasn't planned, but not prevented either. We are both very happy. I think we were both suprized at first. We were both happy, yet still a bit in shock. It's all new to us. My husband and I both thought we couldn't conceive. It took us 2 1/2 years, but it happened. Now we are waiting on our first little girl.

  • I had my first when I was 22, and she was planned. My son was born when I was 24, and he was planned as well. I got married at 21, my dh is a few years older than me, and I wanted kids. I got pregnant just 4 mos after getting married. My daughter was born 5 days before our first wedding anniversary.
