hi everyone my name is brianna. i am18 years old, married, trying to graduate HS and more importantly a mother to a 2 1/2 month old baby girl. i know i am a baby myself which is why i question myself as a mother. i love my baby girl but i just feel like i gave up my entire life. i have no friends, i hardly see my husband because of the crazy hours he works and i am just alone. :( can anybody help me get out of this slump or atleast give me advice? All i want is to be able to talk to someone who can relate and understand the hardship i am going through. all i need is a friend.

Can you find any mommy and me classes in your area? Librarys have free activities like that. I know how you feel and I'm 25 so its not because you're so young your a human its normal to feel like that. Ive been taking my dd(6 mo) out to story time at the library you get to meet other moms its been helping a lot. Also my husband works crazy overnite hours so I told him that we need a day out just us at least once a month its very important.

Hang in there hunny

Just keep your head up, and do not give up on high school! Once that is done you will feel amazing! My dh is going into the military he is still loseing weight before he can sign his contract and go to boot camp, so he is always working with his dad or working out, I graduated highschool and feel so much better about my self! I'm 19 with a high need daughter who is 9.5 months old. Just breath relax and love yourself and your family

 Oh honey, that happens a lot. Teen moms can have really lonely lives because most girls our age just can't understand our new lifestyles. The best advice I have is to connect to your family members more and keep your eye out for girls with babies like you. I'm in the same boat but I just started messages random people on facebook I haven't talked to in a while who happen to have babies too. Just get out of the house, take a trip to the mall with the baby. People like to engage in conversation when they see the little baby and maybe you'll meet someone cool!

Hey, I feel your pain as well! I'm Aubree, and I'm also 18. I have a 4 month old son and stay at home with him 5 days a week. I work part time and just graduated. In the fall I plan on attending college to get my ADN. Message me anytime!

I don't think you are a baby. I was 20 when I had my first. You are young yes but you are not a baby. :)
