When did your parents have their first child?

With all of this teenage pregnancy and mother talk, I wanted to know when you parents had their first child.

So when did your parents have their first child?

If you have children, how old were you when your first one was born? And if you do not have children (and want them) when do you "plan" to have your first child?




My mother had me when she was 30 and my father was 31. But my mother had my sister (first born) when she was 27 years old.

If all goes well, we hope to have children when we are between 30-34 years old.
We're all born mad. Some remain so.

My parents were 28 when my brother was born, though would have had their first kid at 27 if my mom hadn't had a miscarriage. They were both 30 when I was born.

35 is my self-imposed deadline for looking into adoption and foster care. (Though when I end up with kids would most likely be after that!)

mom was 23 and dad was 25 when they had me (first born).

I was 26 and dh was 33 when we had our first child. I answered for curiosity's sake but I think making the decision to get married, have kids, buy a house, car, etc. are (individually) just very dependent on your stage in life and just slightly on age.

It seems these days you hear a lot of people giving lip service to waiting until they're in their 30s and 40s to make momentous decisions and while I'm can understand some have genuine motives, the ones around me seem like they're just delaying any growing up for the longest time possible.

I would like to have an analysis-free thread.

Mom was almost 22 when my sister was born & Dad was almost 25. They'd been married 13 mos when she was born.

I was almost 37 when Bets was born & Dh almost 36. Hopefully when he gets home we'll get lucky & get pg w/in the first 6 mos w/ #2!!

Cehua, no analysis just my opinion and experience. (as stated in my previous post)
my mama was 21 and my daddy 24.
I am 25 now, was married at 24, and I want at least 2 of the 3 or 4 kids we want to be born before I am 30. So the first one needs to come ideally when I am 27 or so.

My parents were both 23 when my sister was born and 27 when I came along. They got married when they were 18.
My mom was 25 and my dad was 24 when my older brother was born. They were 40 and 39 when my youngest brother was born. So my siblings and I are quite spread out!

I don't really have a "plan" for when I want to have kids, but I want to be finished with my Ph.D. and working in a steady job before I have kids, so I'll be at least 28. It really depends on when/if I meet someone I want to marry and have kids with, so I have no real time frame yet.
My mom was 32 when I (the oldest) was born and Dad was 35.

My mother had my sister at 18 and was married to the father before her birth. She did what her family thought was best(not having a child out of wedlock), which ended up not being the best thing for her or my sister. He ended up having substance abuse problems which put a huge burden on my mom, and she eventually had to kick him out after he started stealing items from the home. Luckily my mother was/is a strong woman, and didn't need him to take of her or my sister.

My mother had me at 33 and my father was 39.

I don't have any children at the moment, and don't plan on having any until myself and my fiance are financially stable(and married). Ideally, I would like to have children before 30. I know that pregnancies become a higher risk with age, and my mother had a particularly difficult pregnancy with me(I was born 2 1/2 months premature and remained in the hospital for 2 months).

My parents got married 1 month after they turned 20, and they had my sister 9 months later (honeymoon baby!).

I was 27 when I had my son.

My sister was 23 when she had her first son, 25 when she had her daughter, and 30 when she had her other son. (So her youngest and my son are the same age). She's done, now.



On another note, my aunt became a mother as a teenager, and then her daughter did the same, making her a grandmother at 37! What blows my mind is that I'm nearly 37 now myself. I can't imagine being a grandmother now!
I have half a brother and sisters. My mother was 19 when she had my brother. My father was around 30 when my first half sister was born. My mother was 34 and father was 51 when I was born.
my mum was 26, my dad was 38. my mum had 4 miscarriages before me plus a stillborn little girl a year before me.

My Mom was 21 and my Dad was 19. Totally unplanned (no idea she was pregnant untill she went into labour!) and they got married a week later.

I would like to have a baby before I'm 30, as I really don't want to be in my 60s when the kid gets out of highschool, but we'll see. Still aways off and I'm not in a huge hurry

My mom was 26 and my dad was 20. They'd been married just over a year when I was born.

I don't plan to have any children at all.
My parents were both 24 when they had me, which was pretty old for the place and time. Both dh and I were 33 when we had my son.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
My mom was 24 when she had my sister and 27 when she had me.

I was 2 days shy of my 30th birthday when I had my son and 22 days shy of my 35th when I had my daughter.

Given the choice, I would have married dh earlier in our relationship and had my kiddos a bit younger.
