    I dont have kids yet, But I’m only 20 (husband is 26), and we will have a kid by the time I’m 23. I dont want to be an older parent. I want all my kids grown up and out of the house before I’m 45.

    I was 21 when DS was born, but he was born a day before my birthday, so I was practically 22 Wink FI was 28 when DS was born

    Younger than your youngest option on your poll. I was 18. Not exactly when I’d plan to have a baby, but it worked out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Had my second at 21.

    I got pregnant at 18 had my son at 19. I am almost 27 and my cut off for another baby is 29/30 when my DH agreed to get snipped. So were just letting nature take it’s course. If it happens it happens if not I have my DS. I’d like another one though ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t have kids yet, but I voted 27-30. I’m 26 now and we’re planning to start TTC around the end of this year. (This is of assuming everything works out, of course!) It’s always interesting to me to see different answers. Most of my friends with kids had their first around 19-21 and think I should have started trying a long time ago. One the other hand, one of my 25 y/o friends said kids are the last thing on her mind for a very long time!

    I didn’t vote because I don’t have kids…. but I’ll be 31 at the wedding.  I’m guessing I’ll be 32 or 33 when I have my first baby.

    @funkymunky85:  I was 2 months shy of my 22nd birthday when I had my son and haven’t had anymore. The relationship I was in didn’t last though.

    My mum was 29 when she had my eldest sister,34 when she had me and 36 when she had my younger sister. She had been with my dad since she was 18(he is 7 years older)and married him at 24 and she says now she regrets having us later.

    My big sister had her first baby last year at 37 and my little sis who’s 31 hasn’t had any yet even though she is in a long term relationship and lives with her boyfriend. For my mum it’s a case of she feels she came to motherhood late and now her daughters( other than me) have too so she feels she won’t get long enough with her grandkids. It makes me sad when she says this.
