  • Well I had my son when I was 18. However, I was married and a sophmore in college. We had to restrict what we bought. No more buying stuff just for fun or going out to dinner whenever we wanted. Most deal with not being able to hang out with friends anymore but I didn't have that problem but that is because my mother was very controlling and I never had that freedom. But I wouldn't trade my children for anything. I love playing with my son and can't wait for his little brother to arrive. I look at it this way, instead of having fun for 10 or so years when I am young then having kids and having 20 or so years afterwards to have fun I will now have a good 40 year block to have fun after my kids are grown.

  • I had my first son when I was 18, I won't lie to you, it's hard. It's hard because you can't go out whenever you want, you have this little life that you are responsible for and every decision you make is going to affect him/her. I hope you have a good support system because it will make things easier.

  • I got pregnant when i was 18, A senior in high school (the baby was planned btw) and had my baby 6 months after graduation. I got married in December of the same year. the only thing that changed for me was not going to college immediatly after high school. But i am going to start online classes soon. My life is so wonderful and I am VERY happy. good luck to you!

  • a teen is actually up to 19. well im 19, and currently pregnant, ive been with my bf for 3 years. i cant wait to have my baby. i dont think much will change other than money of course, which wontbe a problem, my bf makes very good money. My boyfriend and I both don't party much at all, so that won't change. We have our own place, we have a room for the baby. Its exciting!

  • I was 17 when i had my son. I wasnt in school i had quit when i turned 16. But i did get my GED while i was pregnant with him. My life changed completely it wasnt just me i had to worry bout anymore. He had to stay in the hospital for 2wks after he was born and let me tell you that was the hardest 2wks of my life. After you go through 63hrs of labor and then they tell you your baby might not live it brakes your heart i hope you dont have to go through that. But you see i didnt stop there, i had my daughter 4 months before i turned 19. and i will have another daughter 4 months before i turn 20. i am 27wks pregnant. It is hard dont think it will just be a baby waking up every four hrs for the first few months its nothing like that. And when you have your baby know that NOTHING matters more then your child. NOTHING.
