  • who cares what they say..just worry about you and that baby..show em up! i say your responsible enough for keeping the baby and taking care of your responsibilities, since your bf works and your about to have a house..kudos to you..if they cant support you, then you dont need them..i know thats hard since it is your parents no matter what. good luck and congrats!

  • It sounds to me like you have everything under control and can handle taking care of your child. So like Alysia said, prove them wrong. Ignore them because they sound jealous.

  • It doesn't sound like you have the best of influential people around you and they don't have a leg to stand on to be giving out advice. However, 18 is very young to have a baby AND to own a home ESPECIALLY owning a home with someone you are not married to. There are many legal aspects to homeownership...in fact, if you split up, it is easier to make legal arrangements for a baby than it is for a home. Do you know the difference between a fixed rate and an adjustable rate? Do you know what PITI means? Is the house located in a homeowner's association? Do you know what your taxes will be? Your APR?
    Regarding the baby, I'm not too sure how much your (or any) 19 year old makes in salary but I am seriously doubting it's enough to support you, a baby, him, diapers, food, medical care, wipes, clothes, gas, car insurance, MORTGAGE, home insurance, car repairs, home repairs, utilities, child care, etc. PLEASE consider all this.

  • You sound just like me. I'm 18, boyfriend is 21. I am very responsible, did very good in high school. I will be going to college, majoring in law and political science. Boyfriend is 21, going into his 3rd year of college, engineering. He's working his way up at work, making $16 an hour. He works lots of overtime so that he can give the baby and I everything we need.

    My parent's and friends all thing I've "ruined" my life. I just want them to shut up also. What I've found though is that, no matter what..they are going to talk. Just ignore it and keep doing what you're doing. Make them feel stupid. Do your best and when you are extremely successful...they will feel like idiots! Don't let them get to youu

  • ignore them.
    my aunt tries to tell me I won't be able to handle it and all that shit.. I just went off on her. I just bitched and said I'll listen to your advice WHEN you fucking have kids.
    my parents tells me it's going to be hard but I can get through it.
