Can I join you? I just found out Saturday that after a fairly long battle with infertility (it seemed long to me!) that I am pregnant! It is very early, I'm due August 4th. I've never been so happy and I am praying for no complications. congrats to all of you!
First time mother as well! I'm eighteen which, I know, is not an age most people would agree with. But my first initial reaction to being pregnant (after the shock wore off of course..) was pure joy, excitement, and happiness! I just know I'm going to be a good mother and I am very excited for this turn of events.
I currently live with my boyfriend who is 28 and has a very good job and we are very happy together. Our baby is coming from pure love and happiness, though it wasn't planned, I would never call it an accident or a mistake. I have always been very mature and mentally I am not even twenty years old, I am responsible and I know full well the realities of having a child. It won't be easy but I am excited for the struggle.
Sorry for the background story, this type of subject is very controversial and misunderstood due to the amount of teen moms that get into this situation and it always ends up horrible.
But I am approaching my sixth week of pregnancy, contacted a midwife in my area, and have my first ultrasound on December 19th
Three women I love more than anything (my mom, MIL, and SIL) all got pregnant with their first child at 19. I'm sure they had to deal with a lot of judgement initially but they all are the most amazing mothers I know! My SIL is very mature for her age also (she is now 20) and is doing such an amazing job raising my little niece Sadly, people will judge no matter what...it seems like you're either too young, too old, too poor, work too much, not married, not married long enough, married too long (my husband and I have only been married 3.5 years and you would not believe how many people harassed us about why we hadn't had any kids yet!), not college educated, still in college, the list goes on! Anyway, I'm glad that you are not letting them spoil your happiness. I have not had to deal with people about our pregnancy so much (we haven't gone completely public yet) but we were engaged and married somewhat young and everyone seemed to have their opinion on it :P
Now that I'm done ranting lol, I am 25 and this is my first pregnancy. I have my first ultrasound on 12/19 and I am counting the days! We can't wait to see our little baby!
