Hi, im nearly 18 years old. I recently got engaged to the most amazing person. I have always wanted to be a mum, but now more than ever. I fell pregnant (unplanned) and within 2 weeks of knowing I lost my baby. It was the worse thing in the world, ever since this everywhere I go and everything I do there is pregnant girls and babies. My sister in-law has recently had a baby, he is adorable but its hard to be around her without it hurting me. I recently seen my old friends, most of them are either expecting or already have a baby. Its driving me nuts. I feel like I have lost apart of me when I lost my baby im so emotional and I hurt so much. I just want to be a mother, I know I am physically emotionally and finically ready for a baby. Everyone tells me I would be a great mum, im from a family of 8 children so I have experience with children I also have done a course in child care. And I know my partner would be a great father. But my partner doesn't want a child until we are in our mid thirties. And I know so many people say children make you grow up and you have to give up everything, I am very mature I don't like to drink alcohol so I don't party I don't have anymore schooling to do. My partner and I are living on our own we have jobs and a car. I would be so dedicated to my baby. I feel so ready but he isn't and I don't want to push him into it and I wouldn't purposely fall pregnant I just wouldn't do that to him. Its driving me cray cray. I need some advice. Please help me.
