I received the invitation today to join this group.. and I am 30. I will be 31 in 6 months. Hopefully after 6 months I don't get the pink slip!



I am due in November, and this is my second. We are actually having back to back babies. My first is only 10 months old. No, it wasn't planned.. and yes it was a shock.. :)



I read a couple of posts already, and find it oddly ironic.. cause I get asked "why did you wait so long to have kids".. I had my first when I was 29..



No matter how old you are, someone will always have something to say about it. It just so happened that it didn't happen for us until I was 29. It was helpful, cause I got to finish college and start my career.. but even if I had gotten pregnant at 21.. it would have been fine too.



Anyway, no one is safe from someone else's judgement.. we will never be old enough, young enough, tall enough, short enough, skinny enough, heavy enough.. just love you for you.. and know that the babies you have were a gift from God.. and no one should judge God's timing. :)

Yeah I agree with you. I had my first baby when I was 25 and really didn't think I was young. I think 20 isn't too young, you're past your teens. I also know some really awsome Mother's who had children at 18. Age doesn't make a difference :)

Amen to that! There is definately always some kind of judgement on all mothers. I was 19 when I had my first little girl (just a few months shy of 20), and I am now also due in November of this year which is a shock to us as well. My little girl will be 15-16 months old when I have my second child. I totally agree with you, and all we can do is our best. :)
