I was 23 with DD - just want to say though - that being a young mum is a great thing, I went to uni and worked in the field for a couple of months - hated it, went into retail and got pregnant with DD and never looked back, sure we are broke and don't have property etc but who gives a sh*t? If I could go back I would have wasted my time at uni and as I knew DH in high school we could have married earlier and started a family earlier and still been in the same position we are now. So all the power to you girls!

I think I'd be on the higher end of young mums (when we have a baby).

I wanted to start trying for a baby at 20, unexpectedly became a relative carer (like foster care but to kids you are related to) 2 weeks after my 21st, actually started trying that same year and 'had one on the way' but unfortunately lost the pregnancy. I've also had 2 pregnancies since being 22 that have ended the same way.

I'll be 23 in March so hoping to fall pregnant with our baby before then.
