Hi there, I am 28 years old and my boyfriend and I would like to have a baby soon. I joined this community because I thought ‘who could give me better advice than a mother’. One of the things that scare me about having a child is that I don’t want to look back and say that I missed out on this or that and a lot of my friends that are also in their 20’s say that they would have waited longer before having kids. Partying every Friday has become monotonous and I am pursuing my dream career wise so I think I’m ready to take that next step. What bugs me most is money. How expensive is it really to have a baby? I welcome all of you to give me any words of wisdom and all the single moms out there …….how hard is it to cope without the assistance of a man emotionally and financially because I might find myself in that boat one day?
