    I was 25 when I got pregnant with my first. My family were really disappointed as we weren't married. It got better with time. I just had my second (under 2 years later) and I'm still not married. No fuss this time.

    I was 21, turned 22 three weeks after he was born. Ex partner was same age. No one was happy and there was a great deal of pressure to end the pregnancy from both families which I resisted. Love DS1 to the moon and back.

    Was 22 when I fell pregnant and had my son. My ex did not approve. It got dealt with via security at hospital and several police reports. He REALLY didn't approve.

    I was 22 when I fell pregnant and 23 when I gave birth. We'd been married 6 months when I fell pregnant and prior to that my mum kept saying things like "well now that you're married" so I had her approval before we even started TTC (she had no idea what our baby plans were). Our families were ecstatic when we announced it.

    The only negative comment I got was the girl who replaced me at work, she had been there two weeks and said "I think you're too young to have bought a house, be married and having a baby" she was the same age as me, I felt like saying "just because you're not ready for that level of responsibility doesn't mean it's not the right decision for me" but bit my tongue.

    How horrible of the girl replacing you! Not her place to comment at all

    All of my work colleagues are a minimum of 7 years older than me and feel some of them may feel the same way as the girl that replaced you!

    I was 29, hubby was 39...about a month off turning 40. No negativity really as we had been together almost ten years and married for nearly 2.

    Closest we got to negativity was a couple of his friends asked why he would want to go back and do it all over again as he has two older children from his first marriage who were both young teenagers. And the kids were a little unhappy about it as well. Having said that there have been no issues since our little Miss was actually born Everyone else was just surprises we had waited so long to begin with.

    I was 18 when I fell pregnant with DD1 and 22 with DD2.

    My Mum wasn't thrilled when I had my first daughter but she also couldn't imagine life without her

    Currently pregnant with my first. Will be 31 and DH will be 34 when baby is born. Everyone is ecstatic because our families never saw it coming. We have never really spoken of a desire to have children.

    I was 33 when I fell pregnant and 34 when ds was born. 35 pregnant with DD and 36 when she was born. Dp is 3 years younger than me. His family seemed surprised at first but it wasn't long before the shock wore off and everyone was very happy. If anyone was displeased they hid it from us well.

    First bub i was 20 and 7 weeks into our marriage. Dh was 23. Everyone was overjoyed.
    Our 5th and 6th not everyone was happy. We took the attitude that we weren't asking them to raise them so their opinion wasn't worth worrying about.
