I thought it would be fun just to see how old eveyone was when they had there first baby and how big was your baby.. Also how old were you when u had your second and how big was that baby and so on.. Also how much of an age gap is there... I was 21 hubby was 24 and our son was 6lbs even and 19 3/4 in long.. With my second I was 22 hubby was 25 she was 3lbs 8oz and 16in long she was also a month early due to gastroschisis otherwise i would have been 23... There is 18 months and 4 day between my kids.. There are 7 years between myself and my brother and 16 years between my hubby and his brother...

I had my first child - a daughter - 5 months ago when I was 29 & Daddy was 21. She weighed 6lb 4.5oz & was 49cm long. I have had 2 miscarraiges in the past & never thought I'd have a baby. She's the best thing that has ever happened to either of us & we couldn't imagine life without her.

I turned 17 a month before i had my son. There was a 5 year gap between his father and i. Bevan weighed 7lbs 11 ozs and was 56cm long 32cm head circumference. My daughter was born when i was 21, there is a year gap between her father and i. Cooper weighed 7 lbs 11 ozs also, was 54cm long and 34cm head circumference. Cooper was 8 days early and Bevan was 7 days late. Both natural births and they say the second is faster, they lied...lolol. My labour with Bevan was 12.5 hours and Cooper was 16.

Aw they sound tiny! Ok mine were:



7lb 14oz, boy, I was aged 23

7lb 12oz, girl, I was aged 25

8lb 3oz, boy, I was aged 30



Can't remember measurements but all were chunky babies with big heads, even to the extent that they were "keeping an eye on it" pffft they get it from their dad lol.



Both boys arrived in the afternoon whereas my daughter kept me up all night arriving at 4.51am, she sure wanted to make her entrance into the world LOL, was born on her due date and has been making up for it ever since.



All 3 were also born with no use of pain relief. I was soooooo lucky!!

My husband was 37, and I was 40 when our first and only child, a boy, was born in 2001. He weighed in at a whopping 5.520kg !! (approx 12.14 pounds I think). He was 58cm long and his head circumferance 37.5 cm.The placenta alone was about 960 -980 grams. (can't quite remember, but that equates to almost 2 pounds if my calculations are correct. He is now 8 and a half and often mistaken for 11 or 12 ! A tall boy !!






Wow good work, I thought my girl was big at 4.785kg! That's awesome :)






Thank you Elisha. 4.785kg is not to be sneezed at either ! Well done!

I was 20 when I had Alayna; she was 8lbs 5.5oz. I was 25 when I had Alycia; she was 7lbs even. And I was 28 when I had Alexis; she was 7lbs 12oz. There are 4 years & 9 months between the first two, & 3 years & 1 month between the last two which means there are 7 years & 10 months between the oldest & youngest. Hubby was 22 with the 1st, 27 with the 2nd, & 30 with the last one.

I just had my first baby 4 months ago, I'm 31, hubby 32. My son was 2 weeks early and weighed 9.5lbs and 20.5 inch long. I'm going to have another in the future, Hopefully start trying when my son is about a year and half and maybe a third. I would like to have my children before I turn 36, so not sure if we will end up with a third.

Both my husband and I were 37 when our son was born. He weighed 5 lbs 3 oz.and 18 inches at birth. He had moved into the breech position the previous 2 weeks. The day we took a stress test ended up being his birth date (SIX weeks early) due to the results not looking favorable for a full term pregnancy. I had to have a cesarean birth.

While he started out small at birth, my "baby" recently turned 7 years old and more than made up for it. He's about 75 lbs and 4'6"!

I was 34 when I had my first son who weighed 8lbs 4oz and 38 when I had my last son who weighed in at 7lbs 2oz. I was on the high risk list for both due to age but both pregnancies were relatively easy (with a minor cyst and kidney infection with the first)...What was really memorable about both my deliveries was that they were easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!!! 2 hour labor with the first and 1.5 with the second...I dilated so quickly, there was not enough time for an epidural.

Hi,

I was 28 when I had my first pregnancy (2005) in which I had identical twin girls. Being twins they weighed just under 2.5 kg each. I am currently pregnant with our third child, not twins this time around and I am due on the first week of April 2010. We wanted to leave at least a five year gap as handling two children at one time was enough for us. And we wanted to wait until our girls where alot less dependant on us and knew how to do many things on there own.

I had my first son two days after my seventeenth birthday and he was 9lbs 13.9 oz. My second was when I was 19 and he was 8lbs 5 oz. My third son I was 23 and he was 7 lbs 5 oz. My last son I was 27 and he was 7 lbs. Keep in mind that my first son was two weeks late, my second son was a week early, my third and fourth son were a month early. There is almost three years between my first two, almost four years between the middle two, and almost four years between the last two. A total of 10 years between the first and last.

I'm 23 and had my baby girl in July 09 weighing 10lb 9oz, 53cm long, 38cm head (c-section needed after 11hr labour as she was too big to even drop down) My man is 31... we are probably going to try for a wee boy in two or three years :) hoping the next one isn't as big so I can try for a natural birth :)
