Hey. Im rachel. Im 18 and 8 months pregnant getting ready to have a baby boy. Im single but the father is still around so far willing to be a participant in our childs life. I work and will continue to work until i go into labor. Ive been wondering lately on wether i should move out of my moms house into my own apartment and wanted to see what other teens who were living on their own had to say about it.

Hiya, I live with my boyfriend with my 7 month old and I'm also 4 months pregnant, it's hard living on your own, because when you want your own time you can't always have it, bills are hard to keep on top of, but being independent is also very nice I love living in my own house, but it isn't all picnics and rainbows xx

If i were you id deff stay at least for a little bit. Im a teen mom and i would be no where without the help of my father and step-mother. Its sooo much work, i know you probably hear that all the time but it hit me like a ton of bricks and i thought i was prepared. Even if its just so she can watch him while you take a quick nap! Youll be doing a job, thats meant for two, on your own. Good luck(: im sure youll do great!

i'm also a single teen mother and i suggest you stay in your mom's house for the first few months.

those are the most crucial and challenging.

my daughter is 4 months old and i'm still reluctant to move out :p

and if you plan on going back to work after having your son you'll need someone to watch him

I am 17 with a 3 month old we are living on our own. it cost a lot but it way better than living with my mom. my mom trys to control everything and just gets on my nerves most of the time. i worked all the way up till i was 36 weeks, i saved all my money for her, i don't work now it's to hard. my family helps me out a lot, thank god. but living with your mom and saving is a good choice

I was a teen mom, I'm a little 'weathered' now with me being 27, I was 16 when my son was born and 18 when my daughter was born. Being at home does have your atvanages, having a mom around that has some time under her belt, and also you have someone to talk to if you need advice. Being a first time Mommy can be overwelming, and sometimes it's not a bad thing to let mom watch the baby while you take a shower without interuptions.

On the down side though, sometimes like the old saying goes, you can't have two hens in a hen house, meaning sometimes moms can step in and basicly tell you how to do everything, the way they think you should. But if the occation does arise, politly tell your mother that you have to make your own mistakes, and do it just like she did, on your own, but if you have any questions or need advice, she would be the first person you ask. Hope this helps, or if you need to talk, just message me

I would stay with your mom until the baby is a little older! It is really hard to be on your own for the first time with a brand new baby! I had my first at 18 and moved back in just before having him. I lived with her until he was 18 months and having her support was a blessing! We fought, but it was worth it!

Hey Rachel. I'm 20 and expecting my first baby next May. I live with my boyfriend/baby's daddy but I don't think he's going to stick around. So, basically the opposite of your baby daddy situation. As of now, we have our own apartment and it is stressful paying bills and being on our own, but it feels good to be "free" at the same time. I recently lost my job and am looking for another one so it's very stressful right now. My advice to you would be make sure that you are financially stable and make at least 3 times the amount of money needed for monthly rent/utilities - a landlord will tell you the same thing. You don't want to be stressing about money or anything else for that matter as a new mommy. Best of luck to you.

I'm 17 and currently pregnant with my second child, well technically my third, but I had a stillborn. But I also want to move out but being underage it'd be so hard for me to do and I don't know if I can handle two kids, college, AND a job. That just seems like so much.

I had a baby boy at 19. I live on my own and I love it. I work full time and get child support from his dad, so I have a good stable income. It is hard but is worth it to me because then my parents are not on me about how I am raising my kid. Also because seeing the grandparents is supposed to be a happy moment. If you live there its not. I also like living on my own because I feel I am the one providing for my son not my parents. However, if living on youhr own is going to make you broke and unable to provide proper neccessities for your child I would say stay with your parents until you get on your feet.

Hello Rachel im Robyn im 20 yrs old and i have a 2 1/2 yr old son. I have been living on my own since i was 15, i beleive it all depends on what you are like on your own. I remember the first night alone with my son i was scared about everything. once you have the chance it is amazing being dependant on your own but yet still having your family around you. My mother lives in bristal and i am doing everything on my own. Its all up to you Rachel but always remember its your choice dont let people tell you what to do :)

Hi, I am Sophia. 17, mother of a 2 month old. As far as moving out, it seems like a good idea, but you'll have to think ahead as far as who will watch your child when and if you go to school, ect... Parents are a great support. I am actually moving with my parents because I have to go to school...

Im 22 and not really a teen mom but a young mom. I had my son when I was 21 , he is now 16 months old and the love of my life. His father and I are in engaged (so it counts me out as a single mom is most since) But in all reality I pretty much am 25 days out of each month. His father travels ALOT for work we see him maybe 5 days out of the month and most of the time he sleeps (which upsets me alot). I have recently moved back home due to some financial reasons and needing to get back on my feet. To be completely honest with you. I wouldnt move out just yet. Get through the first months. If living with your mom helps you save money DO IT. I moved as soon as my son turns 3 months and to be honest it was a mistake. I jumped into something with his father and fell behind. We have a house together thats been in his family for a long time now but there are some things (long story) going on with that right now and i dont feel comfortable there and my jobs slowing down (cutting hours) so I am falling behind. Anyway DO NOT RUSH into something. take your time , get financially stable , it is very hard being a single parent get your feet in the ground before making big decisions.

Well I think maybe it's a good idea to stay with your mom the first couple of months.

They're the hardest to get through especially if you were alone.

I think having your mom around could help a lot especially with you working and stuff.

Im also a young mom but my baby is going on 4 months.

Hes a baby boy and we live with his dad and his grandma and still aren't going anywhere even though I wanna get out so bad. Sometimes I think it would've been easier staying with my parents while I was pregnant instead of moving with my baby's daddy.. Who doesn't really seem like he wants to be with me anymore..

If I were you I would stay with your mom so you can save up money and get ahead financially. And also, your mom may be able to help you with a baby.
