S/O: Bump if you were/are a teen/young mom :)

I was 17 when I got pregnant with my first but lost her :( But my first born was when I was 19 and 2nd when I was 21. So yes I am a young mommy and proud of it! No one is better then another mom just because of age. There are some wonderful young moms out there just like there are wonderful older moms out there.

  • I had my first at 16 and my second at 21. I think I'm a very good momma and so do my kids, which to me is the most important point of view on the matter.

  • I was a young mom (and an older mom haha). I had my first at 18, second at 20, third at 21 yrs old. After that I had two more one at 28 and another at 33 yrs old. I think there are benefits to having kids at any age. My daughter is a young mom and probably one of the best moms I have ever seen. She is a better mom then me I think. She rocks. She was 17 when she had her son.

  • My DD is going to be 13, but I was 20 when I had her. I knew it would be diffidult right away because I was a single mom since two months pregnant. So I worked and took on my responsibility as it came one at a time. I am also thankful I had my parents there to watch my DD while I worked.
