This was my question earlier. Why do you want to have a baby so damn young?!
Don't get me wrong but i got pregnant at 14 and had him at 15.. and it was stressful. I also asked why in the hell a 16 year old would want to have another baby after a year or two of their first child? My SO worked but minimum wage only helped so much. I'm 17 going on 18 in 2 weeks and i just "barley" got my own place.
Trust and believe me, living with your SO parents or even your own is so stressful.
Honestly, i'm not saying my LO is a mistake but if i had the chance i would have waited. In your case you should! I don't think your dad worked for all that money and for him to just pass away you to get pregnant and waste it all on you for you selfishness.
Oh and another thing, babysitting is WAY different from your OWN kids. Babysitting you could give the kids back after a certain amount of time. Your OWN your going to have to do it all, to top it off you can't just hand them over and say i'll be back tomorrow.
I'd say wait. I don't even want another one yet.

Stop to think like that because it is so early to conceive. Just wait 3 to 4 years more. If you love kids it doesn't mean that you should conceive.

Guys seriously just stop replying here. This thread is almost 2 months old, and the OP said on like the 2nd page that she was going to wait.

Hello, Im currently 16 and pregnant and ive had ALOT of friends/girls from school tell me they want a baby... I say the same thing to each of them...
Pregnancy is lovely, dont get me wrong and I wouldnt change him for the world! But it is a MASSIVE responsibility, you have to devote yourself to this tiny human, the baby will then control your life! Its hard work, think of it, it will cry and you wont know whats wrong! Your not going to know if he has a stomach ache, ear ache, headache or anything else and worst of all you cant stop the fact hes crying! You cant go out when you want to cause you have to worry about childcare or taking the baby with you! And without any help from a dad itll be alot harder! If you have a baby now and the dad leaves you, your life will be alot harder eg, getting education out of the way, finding a partner and being able to afford to support yourself but also fiving your baby EVERYTHING! It would be so much nicer to find a guy and get pregnant and know you can both support the baby and all your family be happy for you! It would be so much more special!



I know this is late and youve already said you wanted to wait but I thought I would post anyway for anyone else thinking the same thing! :D



If anyones wondering why im pregnant if this is how strongly I feel about these thoughts than the reason is, I could never bring myself to have an abortion and i was on the pill! Except i was sick one night and I didnt read my booklet warning me that sickness could cause the pill not to work and I caught with my baby! As I said, I found out and abortion was not an option for me, I couldnt live with myself, however I do not slate others who chose this option! :D

I'm 17 and pregnant. No, I didn't plan it. but it happened. I had to grow up fast. && Honestly you need to be more responsible. Living off of your dead dads money isn't right. Stay in school. Get an education. Get a good job before you decide to have a baby. How you gonna pay for the hospital bills if something is wrong with your baby? One of my friends got pregnant at 15, she has been in and out of the hospital cause her baby dyed 6 times. they are in huge debt cause of the hospital bills. She had to grow up really fast. Being a teen mom isn't easy. I know a lot of teen moms that get stressed out but make it through. your 15 live your life first.

Please here me out on this....




WAIT!!!!!



I was a teen mother at 16. Even though I'm a success story, it is HARD and still to this day I wish I could get the same exact kid only later down the road. I missed out on a lot. Even though right now you don't care about missing out on stuff, because you just want a baby because for some reason a baby would make everything all better right? One day, you will wish you got to live your life first. A baby is hard.. no matter what age you are.. but especially a teen. Not only are you not financially stable, but mentally you're not. I know I know. you're mature and you think you are. Yeah, so did I. I don't care how mature you are for a 16 year old. You don't party, you don't do anything, you feel like you're 30.. I don't care... it is hard and you are not ready. Obviously you can do what you want. But I'm begging you to wait. I've done this first hand. You will love your child more than anything right? And want to give it all the opportunites and the best life right? Then please wait.. children are innocent and deserve the best. I know I said I'm a success story but a big part of that was my support system. My mom watched my child while I finished high school, and my now husband is amazing and has a decent job while I finish college.



I can ship my kids to you for a weekend.. maybe it'll change your mind?:)



Stay in school, go to college and get yourself stable first. You won't regret that.
I pray you make the smartest decision. Having a baby now would be very selfish.

yes please wait. im 17 and got pregnant cause my birth control failed. i had morning sickness (all day sickness) throw up 9 times a day some days and that a lone was hard. and the throwing up went down to 1 time in the morning but the entire morning sickness lasted 3 months. so the thought of having a baby is one thing. getting through a pregnancy is another thing.even though all pregnancies are different...but i dont believe in abortion especially after you hear that first heart beat and see it flutter and i know i can do it with all the mental support from my boyfriend (the father of our baby) my family and his family. but there is more things to having a baby then you think thats including pregnancy discomforts, getting through school was hard enough for me with throwing up all morning. i got lucky because im doing good in school and now go to a 4 hour a day kind of school and they have afternoon classes and i thankfully passed and now just have to worry about my senior year im due towards the end of the first symmester. dont get me wrong you can still go to college and continue your future plans but it will be thousands times harder. it changes everything really.

I'm 17, and honestly thought, "oh hey, a baby would be great, I love kids!, My boyfriend has a good paying job, an apartment, and a car, this should be easy!" We tried for quite some time, and didn't get a child. Then we decided maybe we should stop trying and just wait, it'd be a better decision in the long run. A month later, a week after he lost his job, we found out I got pregnant. I am now 6 months along, and, pregnancy... is NOT easy. Don't fool yourself. Babys are cute but worth the wait. So far we've spent maybe... 300-400. But that's taking into account we go to EVERY garage sale, have great friends, know others with babies, and got free fruniture from my aunt. My registry alone is worth 1000. And let me remind you of medical bills, health insurance, school, doctors appointments, your childs future education. Do you want to be a good mom? wait. (:

Ha being a parent easy? Someone lied to you dear.... Just being Penang and young is stressful and once the baby gets here it's 10 times as hard.... And dear I'm almost 18 and my BD is almost 22 and with everything we aren't financially ready but we are doing what needs to be fine for our daughter.... Honestly babysitting is nothing to every sleepless night and constantly being a parent.... Honestly you have a baby right now your making a harder life for your child.... Me and my husband both agree we wouldn't change having our daughter for anything we just wish we would have been more careful
