i need help, BAD, so im 17 and i have an 11 month old daughter, i love her to death. ever since she was 5 months old ive been struggling with the feelings of wanting another baby. alot of my friends are having kids and i cant help but to feel extremly upset. i was very depressed my whole pregnancy and held back feelings of happpiness because my family made me feel horrible for getting pregnant. i fully support myself, my daughter and my daughters father. but im not sure if having another baby is the right thing to do, i dont want to take any attention away from my daughter. however due to medical problems i fear if i wait i wont be able to have another baby anyway. someone please help has anyone else ever felt this way?

Two things catch my eye. 1. You're 17 you have your entire life ahead of you! Have you finished school? Do you plan on attending college? Believe me 2 small children is a lot harder than it seems. I am 24 and I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old, I'm going through college now it is hard to pay for daycare for BOTH children. You get one to sleep just as the other is waking up, same goes with feeding them it is very challenging, stressful at times, and exhausting.
Secondly do you mean you're supporting the father as well? "i fully support myself, my daughter and my daughters father." If this is the case why isn't he working to contribute?

I do understand how you feel. My husband and I both want another child very badly but now is not the right time. Wait a little longer hun. Finish up school get stablized then have another one.
