Hi,

[now for the ]

I'm only 15, I live at home, I don't have any children just young siblings (a four year old half-brother who lives with my dad, and two half-sisters who will be two a week on the 12th of feb), I'm not planning to for a long time, eventually is not now and I'm to sensible to give in to the fact that I am allready being broody (sometimes I wish I wasn't that sensible but I have to work with what I am). But my mum comes on mothering.com pretty often and I've spent a few years lurking : , looking over her shoulder and taking advantage of the fact that she's automatically logged onto her computer to go and read threads. I know want to post on my accord but I'm not sure if I should or if people would want advice from a 15 year old on how to deal with a 15 year old. If tried to make my signiture show my age but I don't know how well I've done it.

Anyway thats me...getting completely stressed out about G.C.S.Es while the majority of people here are being stressed out by children. :

Just for the record my mum's logon name is FandL and she does know I'm broody. She can't understand how I can be after having to cope with my sisters but she knows I am and feels secure in the fact that I'm not stupid enough to intentionally get pregnant at my age.

welcome I was pretty broody as a teen as well- it's nice you have all those siblings to practice on for the future. I'm sure you'll make a great mum yourself one day!

Welcome to MDC
I personally think that it's neat that you're on the boards. What great parenting information you'll be exposed to. You'll be a great mom someday. And I'm sure those with teens will appreciate the insight from another teenager. Wish I had been on the boards 9 years ago!

Welcome! I think its great you decided to post! I will admit I was very broody at your age too. I remember my mom saying how she thought that my being her labor coach for a natural birth when I was 14 would be good birth control. HA! It sparked a very strong facination with and intrest in all things about babies, pregnancy, and birth. Unfortunantly I wasnt so careful and did end up with an uplanned pregancy at too young of an age, but now I have 3 great kids and love it!

You can learn alot around here as Im sure you already know, and sounds like you may have some things you can offer too!

imokit,

Welcome to MDC and I'm glad you decided come here at the age 15. Hope you make self comfortable and see you around, I'm pretty much in most of MDC.

My name is Jessica and wish I came when they first opened up, 6 yrs ago, when I was 18, now 24. Always been a student of this subject, females of all ages as well as long as I rember. Took a baby sitting though the local redcross by me, took child development course, parenting course, observed the local hospital maternity ward by me, which is the same one that I volunteer in now, etc.

Think thats good for now. Oh how live in New York, New York.

Thank you.
