Hello, I'm 16 and I really want a baby, I have felt this way for a year or so and it's really eating away at me:( I have finished all of my school work and I am going on to college and I want to be a midwife. I like to think I am great with Kids and people tell me I would be a good mum, my boyfriend is 19 and he is nearly finished with college and he will be earning good money when he goes on to work. He isn't against the whole baby thing the other day he even said he would like a baby and I may be 16 but its like its the right time almost as if my body is telling me it's time. I really need people's advice and I don't want anyone giving nasty advice. Thanks
In my opinion, I think you should do what makes you happy. If a baby would make you happy and thats what you really want, then go for it. But you also have to keep in mind that babies are a HUGE responsibility. They take a lot of time. And your just 16, your gonna miss out on lots of things because you have to take care of a child. But im pretty sure you already know this. Just do what makes you happy but dont rush into it right away. Talk to your bf about it and plan it before just rushing it. Do like a "Where do I see us in 5 years" plan. Then just go from there. If you both agree on everything then go for it!
