I am just curious on this. This is somewhat of a spinoff.

I have had occasional grey hairs show up since I was a kid so I had kids after my first grey hair but my hair is not in the process of greying. That occurs at different times for different people.

Nope. I found my first gray on my wedding day. Seriously, while I was having my hair done, I spotted it. Everyone was saying, "that's just a light hair, not gray." Then, they got close. Sure enough, gray! I give my husband a hard time about that all the time. But, I was just a month before I turned 21. I was young for finding a gray hair. I'm 32 now and have a growing streak on the left side. I don't color it yet because it's not too bad and I'm not ready to start coloring it. I don't really want to, but I also don't want to go gray early and look older than I am. So, I will start coloring in the next couple of years. I have 5 kids and hopefully a few more to go. My gray hair preceded my kids by 7 years.

I had gray hair before my DD was even born (@ 28).

I come from a long-line of people, who prematurely gray. I am no exception.

I have one child, a 3-year-old girl, and intend on having 1 more, but not sure when.

I've had grey hair since I was 18. Which is a good 10 years before I even had my first kiddo.

I found my first grey hair while pregnant and teaching middle school at age 22. I have only found maybe two since then, so I wouldn't say I'm "going grey" yet, but I definitely had greys before I even had my first kid, much less my last!

Re: Will you or have you had your last child before your hair gets it's first grey ha

I wish! I had my first grey hair before my first child was born! (I was 28 when DS was born) I remember being 8 months pregnant with DS and waiting in line with DH. He was kind of standing over me and said "Wow, you are starting to get more than a few silver strands of wisdom." He's lucky he phrased it the way he did, b/c I think any other way and I would have throttled him!

I have had gray hair since I was about 21! I had 2 kids by then. I am 31 now and its pretty bad, but I color often. I think I had premature gray from coloring my hair so much as a teenager. Ah well!
