i did test and they both came back negative but i did have my period. it was way earlier than it should have been and it was also not like it usually is that's why im not totally ruling out the possibility. lol and i will stick around i like reading what so ppl experience and how they deal with it. i learn alot from these forums although i have no experience to tell anyone anything like you guys do i do like learning new things... lol i have a question... it might sound stupid but ive been wondering for a while what is TTC?

ahh you should post on here too! everyone has expieriences with life no matter what they are
i bounce around all the forums if i can and try and help wherever someone needs it!

you can learn alot by reading for sure but you'd be suprised how much you learn about yourself and how much knowledge you can take with you in everyday life by reaserching and posting for people who have questions Smile

TTC means trying to concieve

or in other words trying to have a baby

Since you like kids so much, have you thought about possible carreers involving them? Maybe you can work in/run a daycare or a preschool. You can be a teacher. If you like psychology, maybe be a child psychologist. That involves a lot of school, though. You said that being a parent is all you really want. You can even be a nanny. I don't know if it's just because I live in NYC so the pay is good here, but I am a nanny, and I get paid more than my boyfriend and he has a college degree! It is also a very rewarding job.

From your profile, I see that you are only 17. That still gives you a lot of time to think about what you want to be. Average people change their career/jobs many times before they find one that suits them. Affording college is a problem for tons of people. If you really do want to go, there are many scholarships and loans out there to help you out. If you don't, there are still plenty of jobs out there for you. I'm sure as time goes on, you will be able to filter out which jobs you enjoy and which jobs urk you.

Don't listen to other people. It is true that college does get you a better paying job, but it is your life. If having a job without a college career makes you happy, then go for it. Also, if you ever change your mind, you can always go back to college later in life or even enroll in an online course. Also, it sounds cheesy, but what really helped for me is going to a career counselor. I was completely clueless as to what I wanted to do, and there were 50 things I wanted to be one day, and nothing I wanted to be the next. Going and talking to someone for just a few hours who specializes in it helped me realize what I really wanted in a job, if I really did want/need to go to college or not (I decided to go, but its not the course for everyone), and helped me list the pros and cons in possible jobs. She set me on a course, but didn't force any decisions on me.

That is true that you haven't even graduated yet. Right now, live life in the moment and enjoy what you have. Go out with friends, finish up school, and enjoy life! However, once you're out of high school, you still have to have some kind of an idea of what you want to do. I wouldn't fret too bad now since you still have time, but perhaps try to keep potential ideas in the back of your head, and maybe try a counselor like I did if you think it'd help. Remember, you can always change if you don't like what you're doing in life. I hope things get easier for you and you start to feel less confused as time goes on.

You can check the yellow pages under career counseling. Also, try searching here http://www.nbcc.org/. It is a list of certified counselors with degrees, and there is a list of ones aimed towards careers and helping you figure that stuff out. You can locate them by where you live.

Don't all schools have guidance counselors? You should check right in your own high school for a guidance counselor. That is who helped me go to college and make decisions like that.

As far as working, what kind of work do your parents do? Do they work at the refinery?

Having a baby is not a career choice. You need a way to pay for everything. The reason people go to college (which is way more fun than high school, and most people can afford some form of college) is that they get better jobs than people who don't, for the most part.
