My mom was 38 when my oldest sister had her 11 year old (almost 12) DS.

Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

My mom was 41 when her first grandbaby was born, by my oldest sister. But she had a baby when she was 39 and was still nursing him. She actually nursed her first grandbaby once!! I'm not sure why. I can't remember since I was only 14 and wasn't really paying that much attention.

my mom was the ripe old age of 32.

she had my brother and sister at 14 and 15years old and my sister had her first at 16. I was the last and didn't make her a grandma until she was 49. lol

My mother was 50. I waited until I was 26 to get pregnant because I was finishing two degrees and had a very demanding job... I wanted to wait until my husband and I were in a position that one of us could be a stay at homer (my husband is SAHD).

Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

my mom was 43 and MIL was 50..

funny story, when i was a teenager (dh and i have been together since we were 14 and 16) my mom made a comment in front of my whole family about me and said something like "i dont want to be a grandma in my 30s!" and it p*ssed me off so bad i said "dont worry, you wont BE in your 30s much longer" and walked out of the room
