19, in Uni and trying for a baby.


Me and my OH are trying for a baby, I am still in UNI and he has a full time job.

Is anyone else in this situation? Or in university with a child?

I know it may seem a bit stupid that we're not waiting, but at this moment in time, we feel so ready and want a little one to start building our family

hi and welcome!

i got pregnant a week after i turned 20 so not too much further along than you! i have no university qualification as we had financial struggles, but i do have an english teaching qualification and 2 years experience as a teaching assistant.

i always knew i wanted to be a mom and a wife. i had been with my now DH since i was 16 and even though Dd wasnt planned, that was only because of immigration laws.

if you're ready, you're ready i met DH at 16, engaged at 18, got pregnant at 20 and got married and had DD at 20 too! 3 months before i turned 21. i have everything I have ever wanted and now 2 years later we're ttc number 2!

there will be people who tell you you're too young or you need to finish uni, but ignore them. if you're at the point in your life and relationship where you feel ready, thats completely up to you and OH!

good luck! i hope you get your BFP soon

I suppose it depends on what your goals are in life.

For me personally, I wanted to establish a career and see some of the world, whereas I've got one school friend who had 4 kids by the age of 24. She's 30 now (like me), happy that her child rearing days are over and wouldn't have changed it for the world.

I'm 21 and TTC. I was going to wait until after I finished uni, (I hated that I had to wait that long as I would have been at uni until I was 25) but after deciding uni wasn't for me i left last month and were TTC this month. Friend me if you want!

Thank you everyone! I honestly thought a lot of people would advise me not too even though I won't listen to them! Haha

We've only just started trying as I only came off the pill about a month ago but I'm hoping it won't be too long! Although I am just a very impatient person!

Knowing that some of you are in the same position shows me that I can do this!
I just really want my own little bundle of joy!

Good luck to you all! And please contact me if you want to talk or simply rant about anything!
Fx'd for you all!!!
