I will have 3 by the end of the year (I turn 25 in April). I plan to be done, pg#3 was a COMPLETE surprise/shock.

DD1 @ 18
DD2 @ 23
#3 in Oct @ 25

ETA: my mother had 3 by the time she was 21 and had 4th when she was 35! My father is the youngest of his family and was a surprise baby when my grandmother was somehere around 43! My mothers mother had 7 in a 19 year span (my mother was the youngest with the next up from her being 6ish years older then her).

Re: How many kids did you have by age 28?

I just turned 25 and will have our 5th this summer. I'd love to have have another 1 or 2 by the time I'm 28...but I think my hubs is going to put a permanent end to his baby making skills

Re: How many kids did you have by age 28?

Just read your first post...I had just read heading at first. Momma, you have plenty of time to have a large family. MANY families don't find that the want/desire/feel led to have a large family until they are in their late 20's. Many of them start out with just 1 or 2 thinking they will be finished, and then feel God leading them somewhere else as they approach 30 and end up with many many more children. I wouldn't worry about it. BUT, I do think it's a natural reaction to feel envious of others that have the amount of children you desire. And once you get there...you are then envious of the mommas that have that "new" amount you desire. It's a normal feeling. And that's ok. Although I've been so blessed to have my 5 children in 6yrs., I still look at pics. or families at different events that have 6 or more (anything more than what I have) and just picture what it would be like to have "their" number and wonder if I ever will have it. (MY HUBS IS FINISHED...or so he says.)

So point was, don't get discouraged. You can't go back 8yrs. ago and make babies to account for all those years, so just focus on the years to come...because you have 10+yrs. of fertility left (God willing) and 10yrs. can produce the large family you are wanting if it's God's plans. You will get there

I only had one child at that age, but now at 34 I have 4! This is really a miracle, since we had infertility issues and never thought we'd even have 1! I think it is still possible for you to have many more! It is really in the Lord's hands, but it is possible
