Did you plan your teen pregnancy?

This friend of mine (16 at the time) was with her boyfriend for 6 months and decided they loved each other so much that they wanted a baby together... and that they did. But she was very selfish with her pregnancy (smoked weed and cigarettes and drank for the first 4 months) and they (shockingly) broke up before the baby was even born.

Neither of them had jobs or truly stable households and they did it anyway. I just really couldn't understand the logic here. I mean, I've heard some teen mom's planning it to either trap a guy or wanting to feel unconditional love.

I'm a teen mom and getting pregnant was the biggest shock of my life! I found out while in the hospital for my gallbladdar and cried and cried and cried. I'm more than happy now, but this is definitely not something I planned. (and honestly, after all the BS I've put up with the last 5 months of this pregnancy, I feel stupid for even getting pregnant)

Mine was planned. I was 18, we were on our honeymoon, and we wanted a baby. We knew we could care for another baby though, financially and emotionally. We were ready for Caleb, just not for him to come so early!

I planned mine but I had been with df for 2 years and we have our own house car and he has a good job. I do think it's stupid when ppl purposely get pregnant when they both don't have jobs and live with their parents still. Ignorance.

 I think I kinda planned it because I never prevented it LOL. I always had sex with NO protection at all with my boyfriend (my husband now)...so sooner or later that was something that I couldn't scape to happen. But I have no regrets, I would do it again if I had the chance
