I'm 24 going on 4 kids, so I care what people think? No... I love kids and we can support them and be happy, that's all that matters :)

At 24 I had a 3 yr old, 1 1/2 yr old and and a newborn.



Hopefully, by 26 I will have: a 5 yr old, 3 yr old, 2 yr old and a newborn.



I dont see the big deal.

This.



I'm 23, married, we own a home, DH and I have a stable income and our babies are well looked after and loved. We are TTC our last. We don't take into account our ages when deciding our number of kids. If 4 kids is too much at 25, it's going to be too much at 45, no matter how old you get. Most of my family keeps asking when or if the next one is coming xD



If anyone has a bad opinion based solely on your age and not other factors, it's thought purely out of ignorance anyway, and you shouldn't take it to heart.



Good luck TTC and baby dust, mama :)

Im in the same boat as you..a little younger though Im 22 have a husband we will be married for 4 years this August. I've always wanted 4 kids (2girls and 2boys preferably) no more than that. I have a son who's 3 1/2 and a daughter who will be 11/2. I'd like to have them when Im young but like you I care way to much about what people think...
