Guest ~ZT~

I had DS1 at 20

 

DS2 at 22

 

No they don't have the same father and i haven't been with DS2's dad since he was 10/11 months old due to him being a cheating **** :glare:

 

I work, i study and i have a very loving partner :)

 

We are looking at buying our first house together next year and can't wait!

 

I have never been asked rude questions by a strangers, but hey, i get enough rude and nasty comments to my face and behind my back from 'family' :glare:

I was 22 when I had - William

I was 23 when I had - Hayden.

I was 27 when I had - Jack

and I have this baby just before my 30th.

 

I love being a younger mum. People do think I am younger than I am though too. (maybe having a lot of kids keeps you looking young lol)

I was 23 when we got married, 27 when we had DS1, 32 for DD and 33 for DS2.

 

People ask me if the kids have the same father because their ages are 7, 2 and months.

#1 25

#2 26

#3 28

 

Not only age makes people rude, my eldest two are complete opposites in looks with one having brown hair, brown skin and brown eyes and the other very pale skin with light blue eyes and blonde hair which always makes people ask if they have the same dad! People can be so tactless.

I was;

20yrs 3mths when DD1 was born

24yrs 6mths when DS was born

27yrs 3mths when DD2 was born

I am now 28yrs 11mths :blink: and we have just starting trying for #4

 

I went back to uni last year and found most people thought I was too young to have 3 children :p

 

My husband is 3.5yrs younger than me (not DD1's father) and when people find out his age and her age the looks we get are awesome!! (he was 16 when DD1 was born)

Completely appalled that anyone is rude enough to ask you any of those questions! As if you need to justify yourself to anyone, particularly a stranger!! :o

 

Although guess I'm not surprised, I've had similar intrusions at the other end of the spectrum. I've just had my first child at 36 after being married more than 10 yrs (and with DH for 18 yrs) and lost count of the number of ppl asking me when we were going to start a family - none one's business but me & DH!

First at 25 (well, technically - but it was the day before my 26th birthday)

2nd at 29

3rd and last at 32.

 

I'm now 33.

 

My child bearing age must be what society considers 'the norm' as I never got any rude comments about my age, never got questioned about when we'd start a family etc. The biggest reactions we got were when we were having #3 - people were surprised as so often families consist of 2 children these days.

20- Sebastian

21- Ethan

24- Ashley

 

All planned, all much loved and well looked after.

 

We have been together over 7 years and married for a month (we weren't planning on getting married but changed our minds).

 

We are paying off our mortgage and I am going back to school next year when both the boys will be in school full-time.

my DH and I are 24 and 23, we were engaged after only 6 months together and at age 21. We just got married in October 2009 and bought a house at the same time. We saved and paid for it all ourselves without any handouts and are planning baby #1. People said we were silly getting engaged too young, married too young and are too young to have a baby.

People will always have an opinion but should learn to keep it to themselves.

Almost 29 and still no children :cry:

 

DF and I have been together for nearly 10 years.

 

We now regret waiting until we had good earning secure jobs, a house built and had settled down.

 

None of that stuff matters. If you feel you are ready to bring another life into this world and will be able to handle living on a low wage without all the material things then go for it.

 

You never know what twists and turns life has in stall for you. Go with your gut instinct because if you wait your dreams might never come true.

People are very judgemental.

 

I'm 31 I had my first when I was 25. The comments have only improved slightly because I still look very young. I had someone guess I was 22 just last week.

 

I feel for all those young mum's out there being treated badly. Just pity the people that feel low enough in their life to bring another person down.

 

It really is sad that people are that rude.

 

I'm used to the comments now. I just don't care. I still get angry but now I have the balls to stand up to them and look them in the eye and tell them what I think of them.

I wanted to add that I actually got more comments when I got pregnant with DS than with DD1 as DH and I had only been together 3 months when we decided to start TTC him :) When I accidentally got pregnant with DD1, EX and I had been together for 3 years.

DH & I have been together since I was 15, he 17. Over 10 years ago now.

 

We got married at 18 & 20. Our 7th anniversary this month! :wub:

 

DD arrived at 20 (just! 5 days before my 21st) & 22.

 

DS at 23 & 24.

 

This one at 26 & 27.

 

I haven't really had any comments, except people assuming DS or this one were my first...

Meh, or maybe I'm just too tired to notice!

I figure my kids are just so cute I barely get a look in!
