What Age Did You Know?

Ever since I was younger, I knew I wanted to have kids. At 17 I really wanted to start having them, but never found the right guy. Now I did and it is perfect. At what age did you know that you wanted kids?

  • I didn't plan on having any, it wasn't something me and DH had spoken about, but my BC and condom failed, and we now have a beautiful son :) and I cannot imagine life without him!

  • I never wanted to get married or have children. Meeting DH changed all that. We waited after a few yrs of marriage before we started trying. I was 21 when DS was born.

  • I started dating my highschool sweetheart, Jason, when we were both 16. We first had sex at 17, but used BC and condoms. We talked about kids for a while and knew that 3-4 kids would be perfect for us. So far we have one son, Braylen, born June 16th 2011. It will be a while until we have another one but we want to give him a sibling some day.

  • Ever since I was little. All little kids want to be doctors or vets or whatever. I always wanted to be a mom. At 16 I got into my first serious relationship and at 17 we started trying. I didnt end up getting pregnant until I was 22. Good news is that I was married before I got pregnant, to my high school sweet heart. We now have a 4 year old daughter and one (a boy) on the way, due July 19th. We've been together for 11 years and married for 6 of those years.
