30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms

How old were you when you had your first child?

Posted by   + Show Post

Did you want to have him/her earlier in life?  Later in life?  Or was it perfect timing?  I honestly would've liked to have my son earlier, being that he's my only child and I was 30 when I had him.

Well, Kyle had his first sleepover last night at his friend's house and it was successful! :) Can't wait to hear all about it when I pick him up.

My little girl just turned 1; I had her when I was 31. It has been a great gift from God with a great deal of challenges as well. I sometimes think it would've been better having her at a younger age but then I realize all the things I did then as I enjoyed my hobbies and college life wouldn't have been possible. So I try to do my best everyday and give God thanks for the things just how they have come into my life!

I expected to get married and have kids in my early twenties, instead I had DS when I was 30 and got married later. It was never a case of planning or wanting, it was just my expectations versus real life. I am very happy with the way things worked out and wouldn't change a thing.

My oldest son, Xzavier who is now 11, was born 4 days before my 21st birthday. I am very happy he was born when he was. Because he kept me responsible in my 20s. I then had my son Aaron and my daughter Autumn in my late 20s. An 2 months ago my son Jayden at the age 32.

I was 23 years old when I had my son. I struggled with infertility for many years.

I was 19 with Kaylee, 22 with Alyssa, 29 with Braydon and 31 with Elayna! I'm glad I had kids early, be young and active with them! I'm a little worn out now but love that I'm still able to keep up with them!!

I had my first child 6 days shy of my 26th birthday (Rem - now almost 12.)  I got pregnant with him before I thought I would (I was still finishing up my graduate work when I got pregnant), but the timing ended up working out just fine.   Another couple of years might have been nice, but I wouldn't trade him for the world...he's just THE BEST kid ever!
