SFmedicWife - February 20

My husband is in training in the U.S. Army as a Special Forces Medic. He is going to be in the U.S. for another year and a half. He wants to have a baby right now. I want to conceive now, as well. We're both compet_tive athletes (he's been to Olympic Trials for swimming, and he was a professional triathlete -- just a little bragging on my sweetie :o) And I have competed as a Level 10 gymnast, and done gymnastics for 14 or more years) Anyway - biologically is it okay to have a baby at age 21?

Twenty-one is a great age! Some of the main concerns with younger pregnancies (like teen) concern getting prenatal care, being healthy, as well as mentally and financially stable. Sounds like none of these would be an issue for you and I'm a__suming (based on your gymnastic career) that you are healthy which is another big plus. Just make sure other factors (like not smoking, drinking, or eating poorly) are under control and that you're cycle is regular (helps so you know you're ovulating). Good luck on ttc! By the way I'm 23 so not so far off from you!

I wonder if your question really is if it is biologically okay to have a child at 21. It is and you definitely know yourself. To me it seems as if your husband is pretty shure he wants a baby now but perhaps you are not so shure ... It is a decision the two of you should make. What do you want? Do you know what you want? It just puzzles me that you even introduce yourself as SFmedicWife. I'm just guessing, please don't take it as an offence and forget about it, if I'm totally off the point. All I want to say is, 21 is the perfect age if YOU and your partner want a baby.
