I don't think that it's anyone's concern about your age (except you and your fam). Everyone has their own "right time" and I know your chances are higher than most people that are TTC just because of your age. Best of luck to you!
Hey, my mom was married at 17 and had her first at 18. She already had 3 by the time she was in her early 20's. I decided to wait until I was in my 30's. Everyone is different. No one's business but yours! Good luck with TTC #2! I'm on #2 as well. My daughter is 8 months old.
Congrats! You know everybody is different. Some people will tell you that this is the perfect time for you to conceive another child. Others will tell you that more spacing is better. I think a lot of it depends on your child's personality and your own. I know for me, until my daughter was about 16 months old, I could have very easily handled being pregnant again or having another baby - but we couldn't afford one yet so we waited. At around 16 months, I was SO GLAD I didn't have another one on the way yet. She was so active, and we had such horrible communication difficulties. I couldn't explain to her what I wanted from her and she couldn't explain to me what she wanted from me. Tantrums on both sides were a big problem She is 19 months now and I can see that she is starting to calm down a little and we are starting to be able to talk things out. So based on my own experience, I wouldn't conceive the next baby until the older child's vocabulary starts to show signs of picking up.....sometime between 18 and 24 months for most kids. But that's just me. Many will disagree.
My daughter is perfect, but her birth was not. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with a traumatic childbirth experience, please visit http://www.solaceformothers.org/

Well I would love to talk with you. I am the same age and ttc for my first child. I had a miscarriage in oct 2009 and we haven't tried since then until this month. I'm hoping I wil get pregnant easily since I did on my first cycle in 2009 but I guess we will see. I'm hoping April is my lucky month as well as yours
I dont think its about age but about your level of maturity. I think anyone who can provide a loving safe environment for a child deserves to have one if its in their hearts. I had my children at 19 and 23 and I was a very good parent. Granted I got some financial help from family I wouldnt change anything. I understand the feeling in your heart for a child. Some people will judge and say your not ready or old enough or whatever. But just because other's have more in life doesnt make them better parents or guarentee their child a happier life. I dont think you will find people judging you here. Ive been on many boards and this is one of the only places Ive been were people are very caring, polite, and stay away from being offensive. So welcome and I wish you a quick BFP!
I don't think it is about age either. I am almost 20 financially stable and a military family as well as been together for 5 years so our relationship is stable as well. Where I live it is actually very common for ttc at our age. But young or old it doesn't matter I wish the best for everyone and hope we all get what we are hoping for.
