I was 18 when I got pregnant with my little girl and 19 when I gave birth to her.
My question is why do so many people look down on young moms? It happens alot, I will be pushing my little girl around in her pram and you notice an older woman looking at me with this disaproving look like I couldnt possibly be doing a good job as I am so young.
So I just have something to say to all those people judging me for being a young mom.
I may be young but that DOESNT mean im not as good as a mom as you!!!
My daughter is absolutly as happy as could be, she was brought into this world completly naturally, is told off when being naughty, and is surrounded by love.
I just had to get that out :)
Thanks everyone for all thier coments
I just thought I would fill you all in with what is actually going on in my life.
I am now 20 with a beautiful 13 month old little girl. My partner and I will have been together for three years on the 14th of Febuary yay :).
Our daughter was not planned but I would never call her a mistake. When I found out I was pregnant I was at University doing a introductory to Health year long paper which I managed to finish even though I was heavily pregnant by the end.
I am now a stay at home mom and am working looking after other children in my home. My partner is a apprentice electrician and is loving it. I dont think I have ruined my life by having my little girl, I have just put it on hold for a bit which is fine by me. My partner and I dont smoke nor drink much. We dont party very often, since having our daughter we have only been clubbing twice, once for each of our 20th's. I will go back and finish my studys to become a midwife but not untill we have had all the children we wish to have. I love being a young mom, my partner and I are looking forward to the fact that when we are in our 40's our children will either be in or nearing thier 20's so we can travel the world and enjoy ourselves.
