Is life over after pregnancy?

My daughter is 19 and she moved back home. She found out that she is pregnant. 2 test
she still has to go to the doctors. She is keeping the baby, but my BIL's girlfriend told her that her life is over. I told her that it was not over. That she has family to help her though it. The person that told her that her life is over has a 2yr. old girl and a baby on the way.
I guess the question is why would she say something like that?

  • She has a great mom. Why not let her join cafe mom and meet some women her age. I love this site.

  • Life as you know it is over (for the most part) but a new life is just beginning.

  • life stops/changes if you let it. college, career, etc is still possible but only if you really, really want it.

  • Sometimes some women can be quite dramatic (as you probly know =)). Life is not over. But it is not going to be the same either. That could be what the BIL's girlfriend ment.

  • Well, That part of your life, the childless part, is in fact over. For some people it is over all too soon. Perhaps the person who said it is not happy with their decisions and sees their-self in their past situation instead of seeing your daughter in her present situation. It was not a wise thing to say but in her mind she may think she was being funny or helpful... I dunno.

  • Her life is not over but it will be different now. She will be responsible for another person, she won't be able to do whatever she wants whenever she wants. The person who told her that is just being rude. My life did not end when I had my son, in fact my life became better!!
