I was a mom at 17 as well and people always have things to say. I didn't party and still don't, I graduated and moved out and am in college now. Just don't let people get to you everyone thinks they know it all when they don't because they're not you or living your life. Congrats on your baby, I'm expecting my 3rd in May.

Ah actually im not pregers i thought i wasnt but no.but ever since the first pregnancy scare ive been wanting a baby my fiance has been wanted one but i kept saying no we need to wait till at least after high school but now since im out in five months i keep thinking how it will be him taking care of our child and me giving our child baths and feeding him or her. I know i should want a kid at.this age but i do ive watched a day in the life of a teen mom on youtube and i feel i could do it

I was 19 when I had my first. At some point down the line you'll say or think something along the lines of, "I love my kids, but I wish I had been able to do _________" before becoming a parent. It's not a bad thing, everyone does it I'm sure.. but being a mother isn't easy.

I never said it was easy but its not impossible my mom had me when she was. 21. She moved back cuz i was her first but her moving caused me to be a premature and my grandma had 3 kids by the age of ,23 but had my uncle when she was.18 my family has had some teen moms in the history so i know its not impossible and they had worse going.on like the depression. Im just saying watch what the mom on youtube did it didnt see. Impossible

Frankly, I just think you havent really lived life to its fullest at that age, enjoyed the college experience, enjoyed your early 20s, know yourself well enough to choose a good husband and father for your child, traveled, much less are financially established by then to support the numerous costs relating to having and raising children, etc.

Isyour proposed father willing to ake enough commitment to get married and stick arould to help when the fairy tail comes to an end which it will?

Very valid points.

And how will you continue to evolve your relationship with him? That's important too. It's hard to have alone time with young kids. What will you do when you two want to go on a date?
