Their is nothing wrong with 3 kids at 23. Where I'm from, u have 3 or more before the age of 20! if you can provide properly for all children then I'm sure you'll be fine. You may want to think of better precautions for the future but right now you need to just make sure you have a beautiful, healthy bub.
Also... I don't see the need in people being so rude! She obviously knows she shouldve had better contraception but obviously she didn't ask what she SHOULD HAVE done.
I don't no your situation at home but as long as you have loving family and friends to help you then I can't see what the problem is. Goodluck with all your bubbys tho and don't stress about what you should have done.

I am 23 as well. I honestly think that you if we were so worried about number three, then you should have used better protection. Not saying that you didn't use any at all, but maybe precautions could have been better. I'm hoping that they are all with the same guy too, because if not, thanks for making our generation look worse still. Good luck with all three of your kids, and maybe look into sealing up your vagina for a while longer. Maybe even permanently.

Dont worry about the first 2 people who commented. They were so rude. It is completely natural to be worried. When I was pregnant with my second I was afraid I wouldnt love her as much as I love my son. And that just wasnt the case. I'm sure it is still just a shock to you, but you'll figure out what is best to do for you and your family

People are sooooooo rude on here. Things happen in life your are already pregnant, so what's next? I am 23 with 3 children and I am doing just fine, you will be fine just remember to breathe and be patient. No one knows your situation, nor do they know mine and they are so quick to judge, if you u want more have more, if no don't. I am a single parent of 3, I have a high school dipolma and 2 college degrees; I also work a full time job and a part time. I done everything by myself, but without keeping God first in my life I would not be where I am today. I wish you the best of luck and if you have any questions, just ask because understand.

Hello Kristy,
Congratulations on your 3rd baby! I am 25, but was 24 when I had my 3rd, and my first two (boys) are only 12 1/2 months apart. Don't mind the rude comments, I've gotten them too. I saw on your profile that you are married. You have nothing to be ashamed of in regards to having 3 children young and close together. Don't ever let anyone make you feel like you're irresponsible for having children that you love. Yes, it's hard, it's challenging, it can be frustrating at times, but the blessings are manifold more. You get that many more "I love you"s, kisses, and golden Mommy moments. :)

You ever feel that your heart can't possibly contain all the love you feel? Well, adding another just makes it that much fuller! Sometimes I'm afraid I love my 3rd more than my first two, but then, since I've worried that I have loved each of both of them more than the others I think that means I love them all equally. :) Children are a crown, you're just getting another jewel for yours! The key is to love them, train them, let them know you are the authority and everyone will be the better for it.

I'm so thankful that our Father in Heaven never thinks He has "enough", but is always willing to receive those Who believe and live in Him and His Son Jesus Christ, calling them "sons and daughters". The Lord give thee grace as you nurture this new little one!

Age doesn't make you a good mom, loving you're babies and doing whatever you can to provide for them makes you a good mom. I'm 24 and I have 2 children one is 5 the other is 1, age makes no difference remember that, cuz there is plenty of crappy 30 and 40 year old mothers. Also remember every child is a blessing and no baby is a mistake.

Dont worry! I had a 4 yo,2yo and a new born when right before I turned 24. Its natural to question if you'll be able to handle it. Everything settles in and becomes routine once the baby comes. Good luck!

Wow, those were rude comments.
Number three should be fine. They are all still pretty close in age and you should have plenty of hammy downs.
Good luck. Age is just a number. Its not like your 19 with 3 kids. I don't see what the others are being so neg about.

Well id definitely look into birth control. At this rate you will have 6 before you are 30. If you love your two kids I'm sure you will love the 3rd. But if it really bothers you look into adoption maybe? you are very young sweetie, I think that's why others replied like that. talk, to your partner about using condoms or even a vasectomy. otherwise being a mother will and should come naturally. Good luck!

What are you unsure about?.....The two you have now or the new baby you are about to bring into the world?

Honestly it is tooo late to be questioning the effects of your actions (unles you are thinking about abortion) What does your husban think?

My Thoughts:

As long as you are able to LOVE, give stability, take care of them and properly provide for them than it's your choice but personally for me being 23 with one is hard enough........Good Luck

Honestly hon, I think you should have tried to at least plan it after having two....I have no idea of your beliefs, but try some birth control!! I'm a year older than you and you will have more kids than me. I think you should find stability in your life before bringing more people into this world.
