Hello, I'm Samantha.
I'm not necessarily new to the community; I just haven't been on here in a long time.
Anyways, I have a question I need some advice on. I have been with the same guy since my son was 2 (he is now 5) and I really feel like I want to have another baby but I am uncertain. I am 24 and having had my son at a young age it seems like having a child is never a good idea. Also, my family would look down on the idea even though I am now 24.
Here's a little information about us: My fiance has a steady job and I graduate with my bachelor's degree next year. I do plan on going on to get a higher degree (masters then eventually my PhD). We don't own our home but plan to buy in the near future. We are both up and down about having a child. We are engaged but I do not know if we will ever get married just because of our views/beliefs.
I want to have a child for a few reasons, mainly because I want my son to have a sibling and I feel now is a good time because I still have a year left of school so I could take some time off, etc. I want to be able to devote as much time to my next child as I was able to devote to my first. Such as extended bf'ing, etc. I suppose because I had my son so young that planning to have a child seems crazy. Sometimes I just think I have baby fever and now that I am older all of my friends are having babies and it does make me miss it.
I just would like some kind and honest words of wisdom or opinions. That's all I'm looking for. Thank you.
