I think the option "I have a horrible medical condition and want to have kids before I can't"




That's at least the reasoning I see so often.



Just my two cents :-)




P.s. I am not brin a b***h lol just helping by sayin thats a reason I have seen quite often. If you take care of your own kid and don't teach them to be disrespectful little shits then whatever lol

I TTC at 18, but I was married with a husband who had a stable job and promising career and had put himself through college.



I previously hated kids. Thought they were ugly little shits. But being with him made my biological clock go off and I wanted that connection with him. To be a part of him forever, to solidify our love, our relationship, to raise a child in love, to grow a little piece of him inside of me.

I've also known teens who TTC because their grandparents/parents have some illness that gives them a very limited amount of time to live, and they feel as if they should have child in order for their parent/grandparent to meet them before dying.

Dh and I TTC'd when I was 18, he was 20 because we were married and wanted to start a family. We didn't get pregnant until 3 years later.

you should probably have an option along the lines of "i am married and we want to start our family"




or at least something that isnt insulting as some teen moms arent just random knock ups, accidents, or aspiring tv show queens =/

Your teacher represents 85% of America. Some of these young women are married, some have been emancipated and supporting themselves for some time.

I was TTC as a teen because I thought I was in love. That is what people do when they are in love, no? :D



Also, I think many teenagers do it because they had lack of attention from their father or mother or both. They think babies will "love" them unconditionally. Many fail to realize, it is hard to feel that love when they are stressed out from trying to scrap money to survive and your baby is crying at 3am for two hours at the top of their head.



I am VERY glad I did not succeed. The only good thing that came out of PCOS.

We got together in 2008 and I didn't get pregnant until 2011 and I was 18.
I really thought something was wrong with me and that I couldn't have kids.
So we weren't actively TTC, but we weren't preventing either.
