@gothic_teen I strongly urge you not to get pregnant any time soon. My mom had me when she was 18 and both our lives were nothing but difficult because of it. She had to wait to go to college until I was in school and we were always poor. Her relationship with my dad wasn't good so she raised me herself. She was always working and/or going to school and when I wasn't in day care I was home by myself. She was too young to know how to parent a child well and my childhood was nothing but miserable.Raising children is a lot of work and it's difficult even under the best of circumstances. I'm a stay at home mom of two and I'll be having a third baby in December. I love my kids more than anything and I absolutely wouldn't change anything about my life. I completely understand the desire to have children, at 6 years old I was positive I'd be a better mom than the one I had. But it's not a job for teenager. You need to finish high school, go to college and have a good job and stable relationship before you even think about having children. You need to be able to give your child the best life possible and you can't do that as a teenager. You haven't lived enough yet. You haven't gotten to enjoy your youth or a committed relationship with another person. Please, please, please wait to have a child.
