A surprise. I would never plan a pregnancy at age 18. Its stupid IMO. Go live your life and get yourself established first.

No we didn't plan it. I was 20 & he was 21 when I got pregnant. I love DS more than anything and I wouldn't trade him for the world, but I wish I hadn't gotten pregnant so early. I wanted to finish school and have a stable career before having a child.

Or First child took 7 months to TTC.



Our 2nd chemical pregnancy was a "See what happens Planned-unplanned" pregnancy
Our 3rd pregnancy and miscarraige was planned.



Our next, if we choose to try again, will probably be a "let whatever happens happen"



ETA: I was 18 when we started TTC DD. DH was 22.

This is in teen pregnancy, so i guess yes i technically planned mine at 19, but got pregnant a week before my 20th bday. DH and i were engaged at the time, and he was 27. He also had a career, and neither of us were in high school. I however was and am in college.

I was 18 when I got prego with my first. We both wanted it then. But now, I can tell u that was one of the dumbest choices I've ever made. Of course I love my daughter but her dad and I didn't work out. I was sooooo young. Just sucks, a lot of things woul b different had I waited a few more years. Oh well, sounds like ur pretty far along, not much u can do about it now.

I planned both of mine. But I was 24 nearly 25 with my first and 28 with my second. I dont think I would have ever planned a pregnancy at that age. Looking back now, I'm so so so happy I waited. :-)

If you are TTC while still in high school you are too immature to parent by default.
