Im 17 years old and i've wanted a baby for a long time. Now i want a baby so bad its not funny i dont want to wait any more. I dont know that i can wait. Me and my boyfriend have talked about having a baby but didnt rly decide if we were going to. My mom doesnt even know im having sex so i deffinately cant talk to her about wanting to have a baby. I just dont know what to do anymore. I used to watch my cousins baby and so many people (not tryin ta be mean) told me i was a bettter mother then my cousin was. I want a baby rly bad does anyone have any advice for me.. Plz help
i total understand. i met my husband when i was 14. then when i was 15 i wanted a baby we talked about it and tryed. i got pregnant a month after my 16th birthday. everyone supported me but it was really hard. im now 18 and my son is 17 months old. for the most part its not so bad now other then the MONEY!!! if you have a cooperative baby i might be easy but if your baby crys constantly it will be super hard. on top of that your mom doesnt even know you have sex so braking to her that you want a baby will be even harder. from my own experience i think you should wait
I totally get where you're coming from. I'm 14 and I want a baby. I'm around babies constantly because I have 2 toddler sisters and 2 toddler cousins and 1 baby cousin, and a 16 year old cousin who has a baby of her own. I want one so bad! Everybody is gonna tell you to wait, that's what they've told me, but I would just go for it if you really think you can support a baby
I think you should wait. Maybe babysit for people with babies or something. There's got to be something you can do to fill your time and thoughts. Think about the reasons you want to have a baby. Why do you want one right now? At 17 there is no way you are emotionally or financially ready for a baby, no matter how mature you are. I'm 17 and just found out that I'm pregnant. I'm relatively mature for my age, am not into the typical things people my age are into, etc. I'm nowhere near ready for a baby. Please, if you want to have a baby, think of the baby first. Why would you want to bring a child into a life where you probably can't give him/her all he/she needs right now? If you can't even tell your mother that you're having sex, you probably aren't ready for a baby!
i totally agree with you, i'm 17 and have been with my boyfriend for 4 years, we got pregnant unplanned when i was 15 but unfortunatly had a miscarraige and ever since then i couldnt get the idea out of my head. we've spoken about it and have agreed that we are going to try as im on the depo injection and it takes a while to get out of your system so we've decided not to have the next injection. so i completly understand where you are coming from so feel free to private message me if you want to talk as i've already been told off for putting up a post about wanting to have a baby by the moderator! x
