Wanting to get Pregnant

I am 15. Yes, I know, young. I will be 16 in July. I am currently homeschooled, have only a few friends, a great boyfriend, and a good family. I know y''all will probably say think. And dears, I do. As soon as I turn 16, I will be trying to get a job. (my town is small and u cant get any jobs until your 16 unless it''s mcdonalds) If I go to college at all, it will be in my town and I can handle it. I helped take care of my niece when her own mother would not do it or wasn''t there. My niece is almost 2. My boyfriend is seeking employment right now.
Please tell me what you think. Please. Any further questions, I will answer.

I am tired of responding individually to all you teens wanting children. I am sorry if I sound brash, but been there, done that. I was a teen mom. You don't need to post a new thread, all you have to do is scroll through the MANY other threads titled "14 and want a baby" or similar. The same advice on all those threads is the same advice myself and most likely anyone else on this forum would give you.
As a general rule, we don't encourage teens to have babies on this forum. We support teens who are already pregnant or parents. We aren't going to tell you that having a baby is a good idea at your age or that you have obviously thought things through. (If you haven't thought about what would happen if your child was born dead, mentally or physically disabled, or if your child died due to abuse by a friend/relative or due to medical problems/accidents/SIDS, or how you are going to save up for your child's future, then you haven't thought things through)

Well 1st how Long have you and your bf been together? 2 have ta talked about it at all what does he think? I'm almost like you but I'm 17 and I lost my bbt back in nov. Mostly bc my body was not ready so I really don't think your body is ready but if you really want to first get a job and save up as much as you can and start taking care of your body

A baby is like a back pack that you have to take everywhere, is going to eat, poop, pee, and cry. And its going to do these things when its the most inconvenient for you.

Also, nieces nephews,etc are neat because while you are not the parent of that child it might be fun to feed the baby every now and then, it might be fun to change their diaper etc, and giving the parent of that small family member a much needed break. But when you have to do that 24 times a day, you have to wake up in the middle of the night to tend to that baby for what ever reason, will add alot of stress, and additional hardship to your life.

Live Life, enjoy it make new friends, explore the world, your young. You only get youth once.. Once your a parent, and assuming that you want to be the best parent ever... you will be giving up the right to go out and party, giving up the right to just drop everything and skip out of town for the weekend etc. because you will have new responsiblities to a life that you have created.
