    I was 32 when my first was born, and my husband was 40. I just had my third (and last) baby a couple of weeks before I turned 36 and Dh turned 44.

    Would I have liked to have been younger? Absolutely, but I was in a bad relationship in my 20s, so I’m definitely glad I didn’t bring a child into the middle of that.

    I was 26 when my son was born. He wasn't planned at all, and I admit I wasn't ready for a child at that point in my life. I wasn't even sure I ever wanted children, and if I did, I'd have waited until I was 30 (which is how old I am now). But everything turned out fine, you adjust I suppose. Looking back my son's the best thing that ever happened to me, but it wasn't easy and I'm at such a different point in my life now.... A much better point. So in a way I wish I could have waited until now, because this is a much better situation for a child to be in, but of course I love my son to pieces. And if I could do it again, I wouldn't want children with my ex-husband (Hjörtur's dad), though I did love him, I still care for him, and our son has got a loving dad, no doubt about that. I guess deep down I just knew my ex husband wasn't the right father for my children, though he's a good dad to Hjörtur.

    I was 32 years old, I was ready to try at the age of 26 but my hubby wanted to wait a few years. We started trying when I was 29 and we struggled with infertility for 3 years. I definitely wish I was a younger mom, we might even consider having more children if we were younger. (Hubby is now 36.) Not that we're old by any means but by the time I would feel ready for more I might be closer to 36 or 37... only time will tell!

    With my oldest I was 20 and in between my sophomore and junior years at college. I took 2 light semesters after he was born, but graduated right before he turned 3, so while he was certainly unplanned, life worked itself out. Baby #2 wasn't born though until I was 29, which was more the age I'd thought I'd be having #1.

    I had just recently turned 29 when my daughter was born. I know a lot of mums who have their 30th very close to their baby's first birthday!
