What should I do

I;m 19 and my current boyfriend wants to have a child with me but the problem is I already have 2 kids and don't know whether I could look after another one as my daughters are 4 y/o and 3 months so if I did have another child by the time it'd be born my eldest would be 6 and my youngest would only be 1 so I'd have 3 under 7.What should I do?

  • Only you know what you can and cant handle. I think you already know the answer.

  • I've decided I'm gonna have another but after that I'm going on the pill because I know I won't want anymore for the time being

  • I wouldn't do it. Do you know if you'll have your current boyfriend forever? Your kid needs a father. Are you able to financially support these kids? You still have plenty of time in your life if you want other kids.

  • do what you want to do no one else and so what if you are a teen ignore these assholes sorry no other word for them only you know if you can take care of them and just because your 19 doesn't mean you can't but again you are still young and have lots of time still too have kids and if he loves you he will wait until you are ready for a new baby and having a 3month old and being young your body may not be ready for a new baby yet
