  • Umm, why are you on cafemom? You're not pregnant, not trying to conceive, and you don't have kids or step-kids...

  • I don't think it matters how old you are if you have your crap together...there are some people who are "older" and suck at being a parent.

  • I'm a mix of your question, but not for the same children! Make sense? I was 17 when I had my first child. We got married after we found out I was pregnant. Then a few years later we thankfully got divorced. I got remarried Aug 07 and got pregnant during R&R (May 08) and the twins were born Jan 09. This is DH first state side duty station. I think you have a plan of wanting to wait until you have a job. I would also wait until he gets out of basic like you said and you guys get settled. It sucks to get pregnant and then move and stuff and try to get settled when you're worn out and your body is going through so much.
