I'll be 23 in April and I have a daughter born 25/9-09. I live in Sweden, and I have to say it's so nice to be able to log on to Circle of Moms and be able to get in touch with lots of other moms my age, since most people here don't have their first baby until they're 30+. So hi you all :)
And to answer Sammie Robinson's question; I've gone out for dinner and wine once since my daughter was born and don't really feel the need to party anymore, but I don't think it's something you should feel guilty about doing. As long as it's not something you do everyday at the expense of your child. In order the be a good mom I think it's important to be happy and to take care of yourself - happy mommy, happy baby :)
I'm 21 and my son will be 15 months on the 14th.
Most of my friends stopped talking to be when they found out I was pregnant or after he was born. It makes me so mad but there's not much I can do, so I find myself at home all the time with my son.

Im 22 years old, and I have a 2 year old. I DEF miss going out and having no responsibilites sometimes, but I LOVE my son, and being a mom more. But I get out with my friends every now and then, or my husband and i will go out for dinner or something. My son is my life, but I need my "time" to regroup and socialize with adults who dont want to watch Blues Clues or Diego. But i def feel guitly when i am out, ALL the time. I hate leaving my son. and try not to do it too often.

hey Im 22 and i have a 2 1/2 mth old baby girl. Shes my world.. except i find myself without ne friends.. once she was born all of my boyfriends and mine seemed to drift off.. has the happened to neone else? or r we alone
omg i know exactly how u feel, im 20 years old and have twin daughters that are almost 7 and as soon as i got prego, my friends slowly disappeared, well the ones that dont have kids that is...i had a huge babyshower and close to 100 ppl were suppose to be ther and 15 of them were my friends and they all claimed they were going to come and then the day of the shower 3 came and one only stayed for like 5 min. Then when i had them they all told me they wanted to come visite so i let them know when i got home and we arranged for them to come over and instead they totally ditched us, i took it very personal i mean u can ditch me i really dont care but those were my babies that u ditched. i just see it as u find out who ur true friends are once u have kids...n when i see them or they call me out of the blue i tell them that to and they have nothing to say they just look at me.

Hey, i just turned 20 and i have a 2yr girl and an 11month old boy!
Do you ladies ever feel a little bit guilty for wanting to act like a "normal" 20yr old sometimes?
LOL! Still normal yea... Just more responsible. It sucks to be responsible but ehh! LOL!
Iam 23 and have a almost 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy. Sometimes I want to scream pull my hair out and run away, (but I never would). I do very seldom go out and its feels great and awful at the same time. The guilt is tremendous, but then again so is the urge to act my age...

You know i dont really believe that having a kid really made me grow up. I believe that he makes me feel younger especially on christmas i was sooooo excited just to open his presents with him! haha! We still have parties at our house and everything everyone is very respestful then he falls asleep and its all game on lol!!!! It helps with him sleeping through the night! LOL!

Hi I'm 26, with 3 boys and a girl, age 10, 8, 5 and 4. I have mostly phone friends, they're all moms too, so we get out together with all the kids in tow on weekends sometimes, but not often enough. And somedays, who has time :) Sometimes i'm exhausted, but they keep me young.

im 22 and about to have a boy (4 weeks to go) I found that getting pregnant has actually made me closer to some friends and further from another. My best friend has a 2 1/2 year old and since getting pregnant we have become closer. I think mainly because my man loves her little boy. I also made good friends with a girl at work who is due within a week of me and is going to the same hospital and who lives in the same suburb.
But I have lost contact with my man's best friend and his lady. They just had there baby but all through the pregnancy we tried to catch up and it never happened. I think the difference is we wanted to have a baby and were happy, where when they found out they were really upset.
