I was 33 when I had Aaralyn. We have quite a few friends who are just having their first babies into their 40's... it's pretty common in the states now for people to be having kids in their late 30's and early 40's... How bout in UK??

I have found that in the UK you are either a teenage mom or over the age of 35. Where are the 25 to 35 year olds? We are a vanishing breed!!

when I had Joseph if I had had him in the city where I stayed during my pregnancy at 23 I would have been classed as an older mum Shocked I didnt though and had him at the nearby hospital to my mum and I was the youngest on the ward

I'm an oldie but a goodie. Number three is coming and I'll be 41 when he is born.

Call me a late bloomer. Like Madonna Embarassed

Great to know there are a few of us out there Clapping

It does seem to be the way that the tendency is to have children quite early in your 20s or wait until mid-30s now.

I'm very excited about this little one and so is my daughter Clapping

I am also an American living in England, and I haven't noticed that either. I have friends of ALL ages who have or are having children.
