Taken from the June 13 DDC

Are you the same age as your parents/inlaws were when they had kids?



When I had Megan I was the same age as my mom when she had me. I was 20 and then turned 21 4 months later. DH was 22 almost 23. This time we are 23 and 25. My dad is 7yrs older than my mom so he was 28 and 32 when me and then my brother were born. My mom had kids at 20/21, 25, 29, and 34(different dad on the last 2).

My inlaws are only a month different and had their first at almost 28 then 31, and then had DH when they were 38.

I am a year older (25) than my mom when she had her first (24). I am the second, so I came when she was 27. DH's mom was 25 when she had him, which was her first.

I was older. My mom was 23 when she had me. My MIL was very young, all of 19 or around that age. I was 28 when I had my first though we started TTC when I was 26. Both my MIL and my mom first babies were unplanned and baby conception led to weddings whereas my husband and I were married before TTC.

I had wanted to be married and having babies in my early twenties, like my mom but married first then babies. But I didn't meet my husband until I was 23 and we didn't marry until 25. I'm glad though as your early twenties is far to young for motherhood. I would not have been as good a mother at 23.

My mom and I both got married at 23 and had our first at 25. Then my sisters were born when she was 27 and 31. I'll be 28 for this one.

My mil was married at 19 and had her first at 23. Then the next ones were probably 26, 33, 38.

My mom had my older siblings at 19, 23, 27 and my sister and I at 30. My Dad is a year older than her. My oldest sister had her first at 19 as well. They've been teasing me for years saying I'm "past my best child bearing years." I don't think they feel quite the same about it now that my niece is almost 19, so I've been teasing them saying she's "in" her best child bearing years!

I think MIL was 29 when DH was born, and FIL was 30. Don't quote me on that. I barely remember my own age, let alone theirs!

I had DD right after turning 25, I will be almost 29 with this one.
My mom had my sisters at 17, 20, 23 (me) and youngest sister at 26.
DH's mom was 20, 22 and 26 with her three.

So overall I am older and having children.

I think my mom and dad started when she was 24?? I was 22... My DHs dad was done having kids by the time he was 23 and that is how old DH was when we got married.. So I was younger than MY mom and he was older than HIS dad..

My mom was 22 when she had me, and 23 when she had my sister (my dad is a year older). DH's mom was 21 when she had her first, 25 when she had her second, and 29 when she had my DH.
I'm 30 and DH will be 45 soon. So we r older than they were.

I was 26 with my first (DH was 25) had another at 29, 31 and this time I'll be 33.

My mother has given me lots of grief over the years for having my first when I was so "young" and unprepared. (I was in grad school, DH was in medical school), and my parents helped us out financially a lot during the first year until DH finished med school. My first born has autism (#2 and #3 don't) and my mom has even been so harsh as to blame the autism on DH and I being foolish and having a baby before we were ready. Talk about stupid (on my mom's part), I wouldn't trade my first born for anything, and even though that first peniless year with him was stressful my hubby and I say all the time, we feel blessed to have him, and if we hadn't concieved him then, it wouldn't have been him we love that things worked out just the way they did.

Back to my Mom... it is a well known fact that she didn't want children. She was married for 10 years before I accidentally came along when she was 31.

Having said all of that I will say that my Mom did the best job she knew to do raising me, and we are (with a few disagreements in life philosophy) quite close now.

Nope, not either of them. Strange though, that my DD is just a few weeks apart from my birthday, and my mom and I are three weeks apart.

My mom had me at the age of 20 and my dad was 25. When this baby is born, DH will be 30 and I will be either 29 or 30. My EDD is July 3rd and my b-day is the 13th, so it'll depend.

I think my MIL had DH at 22 and my FIL was 25.

My mom had me when she was 30 and I'm an only child.

MIL had her kids at either 17 & 19 or 18 & 20?

So I'm in the middle of them.

I had DS1 when I was 23, DS2 when I was 25 and I will be 27 when this baby is born.

My mom was 30 when she had my sister and 32 when she had me.

My MIL was 22 when she had my SIL, my DH at 31 and my BIL at 35.

My mom was 23 when she had her 1st (my brother) and I was 23 when I had my first. I was 25 with the twins, 28 with my youngest and this time around I'll be 29 for 1 month before I turn the big 3-0!

I am 24 and DH will be 28 (his birthday is in May)

Mum was 30 with me and Dad was 29, they were 35/34 with my brother.

MIL was 24 with BIL, FIL was 33, they were 29/38 with DH.



Both DH and I have a 5 year age gap between us and our brothers, only I am the older one and he is the younger one. Funny thing is, based upon our 'plan' for when we want to do our FET, if baby has a sibling, there very well may be a 5 year age gap there too, haha.

I find this thread so interesting!

I was 28 almost 29 when I had T and DH had just turned 27 (we are almost 2 years apart. We will be 32 and 30 when this baby is born.

My mom was younger she was 26 and my dad 30 and they had been trying to for 2 years. I was an only child.

My MIL and FIL were 30 and 32 when they had him and 33 and 35 when they had his younger brother.
