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.

I was 36 when I adopted my first child. He is now 14 months and hoping to adopt again.

I was 23 when I had my first son and I was 26 when i had my youngest son.  I'm now 31 and would like to have another one sometime in the near future.

I gave birth to my son when I was 20. I don't think there is ever a perfect time, but I am glad I had him when I did. :)

I was 26. I have no desire to have anymore.

That's young compared to me.

I got a late start because my husband and I didn't meet until we were both 32. Then, we dated for 3 years before getting married at 35. Then, we struggled with infertility for 2 years. Thankfully, we got pregnant last year through IVF (thank you Drs. Le and Haas!) and now have our beautiful little girl. I am now 38 and she was born just 4 months ago. We are torn about having another baby since we are older but luckily we have 6 frozen embryos left over from our IVF cycle. Still, we don't want to wait too long to make our decision since the risks go up significantly after 40. So, yes, I would've preferred to have started earlier, but only if I'd met my hubby earlier. He is my soulmate and I am so thankful to have him!

I was 29 with my first and 32 with my second.  I had infertility issues with my first, but I'm so glad God gave me my babies when he did.  I couldn't imagine having them when we were younger!
