Hey ladies! I'm only on page 2 of reading this thread but thought I'd jump in now before it gets to page 35!
I'm 22 (dp is 26) with my 5 month old son (so I'm not *really* young). I was pregnant when I was 20... didn't find out until I was 21 and just recently had my 22nd bday. I was in college full time when I found out the unexpected
news! I've put my school on hold for now as I'm a happy SAHM.
There was the huge question of whether I was going to keep the baby or not when the news was fresh. Mostly my friends were assuming that I wasn't, as I had just started my career path, and hadn't *lived* it up like a *normal* 20 yo. But keeping the baby was the only option! He chose me as his Momma, it was meant to be. I don't regret it at all!! I love being a Momma! And anyways, my crazy party days ended when I was like 18.
We got "so when are you getting married?" in the beginning when we told people. Dp's step mom really pushed the conversation-- so uncomfortable. Then I later found out that she was pregnant with her first at the same age as I was, with her boyfriend
That's so funny that you started this thread... I was just about to start one for 20 somethings and other young mommas! Ya beat me!
Good to see you other young, responsible mommas out there.
