Hi, I just turned 18 and I recently thought I was pregnant. (I was a week late, and showing all of the symptoms) Well, while I was waiting on the blood test results at the doctor to see if I was pregnant, I started my period. Before this happened, I was set on the idea of waiting for at least ten years so I could finish college and have a career to support a child, but, I had honestly gotten excited during the week that my period was late. When I found out I wasn't, I cried a lot and now I'm thinking I might actually want a baby. This reaction has even surprised me! I recently did get married to an absolutely wonderful guy (who had also gotten a little excited) but he is in the Navy and he'll be gone 6 months at a time so this makes me nervous about getting pregnant.
My questions are, is it weird for me to want a baby right now (at 1Cool and is there anyone else out there who has a baby during college or is young with a baby whose husband is in the military?
I would just like to see all sides before I make a decision whether or not to conceive right now.
Thanks for your time!=)

Well, right now I am 18 and I have a wonderful one year old son, my fiance is not in the army/navy however. It is completely normal for you to be wanting a baby around. When your pregnant it can be a real scary thing, but once you get past that part a baby is one of the most exciting things that can happen to you and I cant imagine the disappointment you must have felt. Along with knowing that your husband is going to be gone a lot, the feeling of having someone else around is probably really nice. However, having a child while still going to school is very difficult, I am currently going to college now and i am having a lot of trouble, its so hard to concentrate with a toddler running around.
However the decision is, and if you feel like you are financially and emotionally stable enough to have a child then I think it's a great choice for you.
Just make sure its the right choice for you and your husband. Good Luck!!
