  • Well I got pregnant at 14, had my son 2 months before I turned 16, and I'm 18 now. It's hard, and I WAS safe (condom) I think more young girls should know birth control is available free of charge, without your parents knowing. I didn't find that out until AFTER I was pregnant.

  • I was 20, I loved being pregnant but having family being unsupportive and critical of ever thing in my life it depressed me. I only got out the depression just recently about a month ago. It was hard...thank god I had my husband to be there for me.

  • So, opinion on it? It's hard, and shouldn't happen as much as it does. (Teen Pregnancy that is) But anything above 18, well you're an adult and no one can judge you for that.

  • I got pregnant at 21. And I honestly have to say, while I feel being a teen would have been too young, I'm happy that I have the energy to run around after my kiddo and I'll have my fourties to have fun!

  • got pregnant at 18, my opinion is, if you can do it, support it, let it be. If not then you should of waited, not everyone's the same when it comes to young pregnancy's, no matter what age.

  • I was 21 when I had him. I don't care what someone else thinks. I'm happy with my baby boy. ♥

  • I have three and they were all under the age of 25. I turned 25 the October after I had her in June. I think if you are responsible enough, then go for it. I think some of them are doing it to try to find the love that they don't have at home. But I don't think that they all are doing that. And I'll be the first to say that birth control doesn't always work ( I was on it when i got preggo with my first son). So, yes, surprises can happen, but do i think the girl should be looked down on? Not at all. Some young moms I know are better moms then some older moms I know.

  • I was 20 when I got pregnant and had my son a couple weeks before my 21st bday. Sometimes its hard being a mom. I had to grow up quick and get it together before he came into the world. And we werent exactly financially stable at the time. So it was alot of worry. But everything worked out and being a mom is amazing!
