A little support for young moms

I am expecting my second child. I am only 22 but sooo excited. My high school sweetheart and I had our first baby right out of high school. Neither of us went to college. But we got jobs got married got our own place and are doing great. It is scarey at first but I believe if you grow and and do what you need to do for YOUR family then everything will work out in the end.

hi i was 18 when i got pregnant with my first child lauren who is now 7 nearly 8, and got pregnant with my second baby at 25.Society makes you feel like you have committed a crime by having a baby in what is deemed as young age,i think if my partner had not have been 6 years older than me and had a good job they would have been even worse.i too bought a house and now haver my own business and still with the same man.we have been together now for 10 yrs.

i totally agree with you! I'm 21 about to be 22. i just had my first child at 21... bought a house and have been w/ my fiancee for over 5 yrs. Alot of people look down on you for being so young- but i know for a fact its alot of courage, patience, effort, and hard work. It was the scariest thing in the world to find out i was pregnant i was still living at home all my friends were going out every night and i couldn't although it made me grow up alot faster than i probably wanted to. i wouldnt trade it for the world and being a mommy is the best experiance ever! My friend just turned 21 and is on baby #2 she's due any day now... you'll be fine! Don't let people knock you down. Age doesn't define how good of a Mom you are!! :) Good Luck!
