I got pregnant at 18, had my DD at 19. Got pregnant again still at 19, had my DS at 20. I never really felt like a 'teen mom' , maybe because I had already graduated and that jazz.
But I honestly don't understand why people are so hard on teen moms...its a hard situation to be in, and they need support, not to be put down.



Now the ones that act like ridiculous 'typical' teen moms and act like babies are an accessory, those get on my nerves. :P

I got pregnant at 19 had my baby at 20, not sure if that counts as a "teen mum" but its still young. I have to say its not impossible my partner and I own our own house, we are in a stable relationship, he has a very well payed job and I am still employed just on maternity leave. If you get your priorities straight anything is possible.

I agree, Although I honestly don't think its a matter of age but maturity and no 15 year old is mature enough to say yes I am ready and want a baby. Not only that but being financially stable also helps.

No it doesn't. You unfortunately had a teen pregnancy, but you're not a teen mother.
