I am Also 18 years old. My Kids are also 10 months apart. I got pregnant at 15 had my daughter at 16. Got pregnant at 16 had my son at 17 and now Im expecting my 3rd child at 18. I'm currently working full time and about to start college next month.It does make me mad that people are so easy to judge me not knowing i work my butt off for my kids, i give them love and attention they need. To me I'm accomplishing maybe even more than what a teenager without children would. So my advice is keep your head held up high. And do for your children like you been doing. Nobody knows how it is only we do.

I'm 18, almost 19, with two kids. My daughter Jamie is 2, and my son Anthony was born Christmas day. I'm currently working on my bachelor's degree and am a stay-at-home mom. Their father works as a security guard part time and is the sweetest, most supportive man I know. He's never left my side, even as I struggled through therapy and regulating my medication for my depression and anxiety before we had children. He's my very best friend and I do plan on marrying him one day. We've fought, nothing major, no couple hasn't, but there's nothing we can't work out. We're a special case though. When I was 15, I was hit by a car while riding my bike and received a large settlement. This is the money we live on, and we live happily and comfortably, unlike 99% of teen parents, giving our kids the best and being able to take them out and go on vacations. We don't have to depend on our parents for money. I bought my own car and insurance. I paid for my own schooling. Of course the money won't last forever, and by the time it runs out I'll have to work like everybody else. Above all, no one can ever make me feel bad for having children at this age. I love them, they're my reason to strive to do my best. I don't know of your circumstances, but never give up. And it might be hard sometimes, sure. You have to have a support system of wonderful family and friends. You have to have the drive to succeed for your children's sake. It can be done! You're not alone.

I was 17 raising my now ex husbands 2 kids (I know it isn't exactly the same) that I gave up a full ride to college for. I am now 23 and am raising a 18 month old of my own. I am working and going to school full time so that my daughter can have a good life.

I was wondering if you would be interested in getting a play group together. My daughter is an only child and we both would love to meet new people and maybe make some friends.

Im seventeen with a year old son right now, and I think I just got pregnant. Im very very worried seeing as I have no car, no place of my own and no job yet. All I know is im going to be trying harder and harder everyday to make sure my kids will both get taken care of. As of now my boyfriend ( who would be the dad of child number two) is with me through everything. but he isn't off so well either. anybody else start off like me? I feel so worried

I am 19 years old (almost 20) with 2 kids. My daughter's are 15 months and 3 years old. I've had bad luck with guys but the most important thing is that I have my girls and that I love and care for them as much as I can.

I had a son at 15, a son at 17, and a daughter at 18. 3 Children before I was 18. 6 children before I was 26.

I put myself through college and now I am a teacher with 2 Masters' degrees...stay in school, and keep your kids first...You'll do great. It is hard, but worth it (My grandson is almost 2 now...and it just gets better!)

It's ok being young and having a baby as long as you know you are going to be responsible. i am 20 fixin to be 21 (in june) and have a 9 month old. it is very expenisve more than it is hard but my baby's father (my hubby) is there with us so im not a single parent but the whole time i was pregnant i worked all the time. when i was like 9 months pregnant i was working 13 hours a day because i knew i had to and still worked after wards too but just recently i quit and im now going to college so i can give my baby anything and everything he needs and wants.good luck and don't worry what people think.

I am in the same boat with you. I am 23. I have 2 kids and my first daughter I had when I was 18. Yes sometimes it is very hard to be young with kids. You get to sit back and watch all your friends go out and do stuff while you are stuck at home with kids. I don't regret having my kids at all!

I just want to say how much respect I have for all you moms...I have one child, 7 1/2 month old girl. She is my world, but she keeps me busy! I can't even imagine how hard ya'll with two, three, four kids work! So props to you all for all the work you do!

[deleted account]

First of all I want to just tell you congratulations for makingt the decision to keep your child and not take an "easy" way out! Im also a young mom, Im almost 21 and have two kids. My oldest is 2 1/2 and youngest is almost 6 months. I got pregnant the first time when I was 17 and in highschool. I made the decision to stay in school and I couldn't have been happier when I not only saw my parents and other family but my son smiling up at me receiving my diploma!! :) It was one of the proudest moments of my life! Now everything that I do is for my children, they always come first.

Hi my name is sianne..i too am 18..i had my first child when i was 16 and had to start working a month after my son was born..i am now pregnant with the second child..its really hard coping with one child i can imagine two..but i can say is dont stop working hard an achieve what you want to achieve..my guess would be bring up your children with everything on hand..keep up the spirit and dont let anyone get to you,because there are some people that would love to have children but they cant and yours are a blessing from the lord above..you not alone..

I am 17, turning 18 in 3 months. I have a 15 month old daughter and I am 4 months preg., so I will have 2 kids by the time I am 18. I am lucky to have a boyfriend with a good job that cares for us so much that he pays everything for us right now but I am going to college after I graduate and my next child is born. I am kind of scared but also excited to have two kids. I guess I will see how it is in August! Thats when my second is due.

I became a step mom when I turned 17 and 2 months later found out I was pregnant. I had my son 2 month's before I turned 18. The kid's are 2 1/2 year's apart and it's hard. I am waiting to see but we might be expecting again and I just turned 19 last month. I understand where you are coming from, in working hard, trying to be there for the children & all at the same time being able and strong enough not to give up. Props to the mother's out there who are doing it all.
I am here to chat with you I am on everyday all day most of the time and here for everyone who needs it.

im 19 almost 20 with 2 kiddies also. jayden just turned 2 and jasmine is 9months. had jayden my senior year and jasmine well not too long ago. me and their father broke up his 1st year of college and have been up and down ever since. every aspect of our "friendship" or whatever is screwed up...well in my eyes. to him everything is fine...can i get an amen LOL! umm but with jasmine we had already broken it off...took him a while to come back around but its so hard when he really isnt doing anything. i would do anything for those babies just like you and others like us...but i dont think ill ever understand what goes through his head..sleepin at night and partying knowing that he has 2kids to take care of but hasnt done his best....



anyway your kiddies are too cute!!!!

hey,

im jedeane from wales, im 22 now but i had my first daughter when i was 17 and 2 years ago i had my second daughter, ive got every bit of respect for you because you havent given up, alot of girls i know who have only had one child have given up and put their children into the care of their parents because they cant cope!! i wouldnt change them for the world and i dont regret anything! i always have funny looks off people, they look disgusted with me half the time because im so young and have 2 children! i must admit having 2 kids is NOT the easiest job in the world but ive only got to look at them and realise how precious they are to me! xx

I'm 19, 20 in May and had my oldest, a daughter, in June 2006 just after I turned 17. Then when she was 15 months I learned I was pregnant again with a little boy who I had just after I turned 19, in August  2009. He's almost 6 months and she's about 2 years and 8 months and I couldn't be happier. It gets tough especially since my daughter tends to get rough with him because she has three uncles but I couldn't see it any other way. I don't even remember life without two kids.

Quoting Kyrie:

Hiya, i had my twins when i was 18, then my 3rd girl when i was 20 and i am now 13 weeks pregnant with my 4th. I always get looked down upon, know that certain people just expect me 2 fail but like you, know i do a damned good job at raising my girls and will do just as well once the new addition gets here so i know exactly how you feel. Keep your head up though coz aslong as you are confidant your a good mum dont matter what anyone else says! Im only gonna be 23 when i have this baby so know the looks, comments etc that im gonna get but i dont care, being a mum is in my blood, my calling, we are all good mums weather we're 13 or 30!!



I SO agree with you! I love how you sad that being a mother is in your blood. It is so true!! There is nothing more that I would rather be. I love being a mom and I am so excited about having this new baby, even though my daughter is 4 months old. I too know the looks that we get and the things people say but I love being a mom and the world needs more moms like us!!

WOW. I had no idea there were so many young moms out there. It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone here. I am almost 20 and have an almost 2 and a half year old boy. I work 2-3 jobs depending on the time of year and go to college full time. It is exhausting. And then try to through in a social life and dating... whew!!!!! Sleep has become my favorite hobby.    : - )

It does get better. I have come full circle ... my son is now 17, the age I was when I had him! I had four children by the time I was 24. My husband was gone a lot with the military, so I mostly raised the kids and myself all by myself. I think I did/am doing a decent job ~ they are all teenagers now and there has been no smoking, drinking, drugs or even boy/girlfriends! My son is college hunting and has been accepted at several very nice schools. 3 of the 4 have been in gifted classes and even counting the 4th, they are all straight A students. They are all involved in sports and school clubs. I am very proud. I am not writing this to brag, only to show all those old biddies that not all children of young moms end up teen moms on welfare or in jail. Some of the benefits of having my kids early: now all those old ladies say how young I look in a jealous way :-), I have very good open communication with my kids - I am not so much older than them and they know I am only human too. All my friends who had freedom to party and go to college and are just now having babies - they are tired and so busy with their careers they don't get what I consider enough quality time with their kids. My kids' friends hang out at our house as it is more fun and laid back. It was hard, a struggle at times. As I said I pretty much raised them by myself, worked, and put myself through college (I am currently working on my Masters degree in nursing). But I will be totally  finished with school, my children will all be in college or beyond, I am established in my career and own a home and so on ... I will be "free" by the time I am 40! I'll be able to do whatever I want, travel, go to concerts and the theatre, enjoy my grandchildren ... as  I will have the income and time to do it. In your 20's you scrimp to save money to go to the beach for spring break or even to buy beer and pizza ... there are pros and cons to having kids early and to having them late ~ for me~ early was the best, I am happy with my decision! I wouldn't trade my kids for anything in all the world! Good luck to all of you starting this journey. Don't listen to the nay sayers, who are they anyway? The best advice I can give you: love your children more than anything and get an education! No matter how long or how hard it is. I started college 12 years ago ... I am finishing up my masters right now ... I just made up my mind to do it and I am pushing ahead, you can too. Good luck!

hi im also 19 with 2 kids as well! I t is a tough thing to do at such a young age with children not being part of your plan.  And I know that looking into your kids eyes or watching them sleep, even though you don't get to d what you want to do or hang out with your friends that are in college now, it is all worth it.  They are the most precious things in my life and I wouldn't give that kind of love up to hang out with friends or party at college!
