    Well you are in luck! I guess.. well I am 15 and recently had a miscarriage at 24 weeks. It was an accident that I got pregnant but I wasn’t ready for the pain of having a child. When I lost my virginity it was a pretty bad pain, (But God imagine birth, pushing a watermelon through a garden hose) I will say I had quite a bit of nausea and vomiting around my 10 week mark. I also suffered pretty bad migraines. The first impression I had was I was really happy and exited. My mum on the other hand wasn’t so exited. I thought I was ready (call me young and dumb) I was not prepared. My breast’s were very sore and were doveloping at a pretty rapid pace. There was growing in appetite for sure (keep in mind I’m 5’3 and 118 pounds) so when I started eating more it was definitely showing, as well as the abdominal pains from it growing. It is up to you and I just wanted to share what my part-pregnancy was like. (Of course I was sad when the doctor said she wasn’t going to make it.) but that was a lesson I I’ll never forget. Always wear protection!!

    Hi there, I think you can be ready to be a mum when you’re young too! I have a friend who is 18 and getting her baby in february and all of us are very excited! It depends on yourself. @girly_xo I’m very sorry for you!

    #RemovedByUser# Hey, I think you can be a good mum at different ages as zinzi did already mentioned. My sister just had her first baby at 17 and she is so happy. The whole family stands behind her though. For sure some things are strange but I guess this is normal. Since a few weeks she goes back to school. We did a lot of research concerning feeding the baby and giving my sister the opportunity to go back to school when we found out about the Holle organic formula from https://myorganicformula.com/collections/holle-organic-formula . I love taking care of my little niece she’s such a sunshine! Good luck to everyone of you and never give up on yourself and your baby!

    You probably won’t like hearing this, but you’re too young. Wayyy too young! XD Sorry, but at such a young age, I don’t think you would be mature, responsible or ready enough to have a baby. Just my opinion. But I think you should have a baby once you’re settled, no longer being educated, have a steady income and married. That’s just what I think. Haha, I sound like a Mum, sorry! XD I just don’t think you should have a baby now. Just don’t.

    I think if you feel like you really REALLY want a baby then go for it. I don’t really know any younger people who had kids but I know that i totally understand u because babies r sooooo cute!! I think you should just do what you think is the right thing. If you want to have a baby now, i don’t think 18 is young, I mean there are people who have babies when they’re like 13, so i think if you want a baby, go for it (-;

    #RemovedByUser# Hi angelglitz6, this is just a suggestion but I think that if you aren’t sure about having a baby, ask anyone you know that has a baby if you can help take care of it for a day. Real life experience will help you make a decision. If you still want a baby after that, go for it!

    My personal thoughts are basically a copy and paste of StatLight dreamer. Seriously like a copy and paste. ? but it’s your choice not mine. If you’re really ready for it who am I to stop you?

    Hello angelglitz6, Everyone has given some great thoughts & comments! Although 17-18 is very much on the young side of having a child, it’s a personal choice. The best advice I can give is to ensure that you will be able to support the child & raise them the best possible way. Having a child requires a lot of financial support & time. At 17-18 we may not be in total control of our finances & we have the whole world ahead of us, so a lot can change! In saying this, go with what YOU think is right & what YOU truly want. I am sure there will be SO many people to support you, with whatever decision you make. XX
