Does anyone have a friend that wants to get pregnant due to you having a baby as a teenager? I had several friends when I was a teenage mom that WANTED to get pregnant because my son was so adorable, ect. I would yell at them. I told them they were stupid to try and get pregnant because babies were not dolls. Then I would invite them over to my house to spend the night.... I would take them to the mall with us to have "fun", and my son would prevent us from doing something they wanted to do. I would suggest us go to the movies, and we would pay for our tickets, and we would take turns "skipping" parts of the movie to walk in the hall way with my son. And they would wake up every hour with me through the night because my son woke up every hour on the hour to nurse. I would turn on the lights in my room at 6am and wake them up to get ready for the day because that is when my day would start with my son. Usually they got it after that and didn't want a baby any more.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do to encourage/discourage your friends from also becoming teenage moms.
