Em i'm in the same position as you, I'm 20 and have been with my OH for 4 1/2 years and we've always been open with out families and friends about how we want children at a young age. I was surprised to find that he wants children almost as much as me!!
I finish my degree in 5/6 months and OH finishes his A levels in 7 months. From then on it's flat-hunting time. If an accident happened any time soon we'd be over the moon, and we'd manage together.
But there's always that little voice saying that it would be better to wait for another year or so
Plus my best friend had a gorgeous baby 3 months ago, and my other best friend is ttc, so there are babies everywhere!
Gaaah

Hi missC Im so glad i found this thread
Im also 18 and extremely broody, oh and also my birthday is also in march (the 19th)
Head vs heart is awful i feel like i live in limbo everyday *huff*
Although we are not trying and my OH would probably be horrified if he knew i was on here yurning for a child, if we were to have an ooopsie i would most definatly keep it. My thought is; if its ok to keep an oopsie, why not try for a baby and keep it?
I live at home with my parents and am planning to move in my OH place next year and he often talks about proposing and what our wedding would be like? So he is thinking about the future, i just know he would be shellshocked if i sat him down and had the whole im broody chat; for one he'd never understand the pain of wanting a child *sigh*
I think its just gonna be a waiting game hunny for all of us But as so many people have said when it happens itll be perfect

Hi! Wow, you're story is the EXACT same as mine! Count out the pregnancy scare!
Im 18, doing my last year of A-levels and I have a part time job that I love and can grow in.
My OH is only 17 though, but we've been discussing it alot lately. He wants to wait till he has a job to support the LO, but I think he's beginning to change his mind to trying for one when my pill month is over (in 3 weeks!)
It sounds very silly, I do worry because if my parents knew I was TTC at 18, they'd be even more dissapointed in me, but I know they love me and I am so close to them, my mum said she is ready for Grandkids (although not from me, from my elder brother!) But he doesn't even have a girlfriend!
My dad is quite stern, they are both Christians (not strict though, more playful and friendly) so I know they'd support me as best they can.
But obviously me and OH want to do it ourselves. We're going to look for places to rent when exams are over, and my job is very good paying so I know I can afford it, it's just OH's turn to get a job for extra help.

Ive only been with my OH since January (10 months) but we are so in love, I can honestly say, no other guy or ex boyfriend has treated me so amazingly well like my OH right now! Good luck TTC, maybe we can be bump buddies if you're trying in the next few months? :P

Yeah I'll be 19 in July! OH will be 18 in May, he discusses engagement rings with me and we always look on rightmove for houses to rent!
I think you just know when you've found "the one" (Cliche haha)

Unlike you, we were thinking of TTC in January and during the summer looking for a place. We still have lots to discuss! But my OH is only 90% ready, he says he needs more time to think because of the finances. He said he definately wants a baby but money-wise he wants a job before we try.

And as for the "head or heart" I think they need to coincide but my heart is definately the pusher! Ive never felt so strong about anything in my life xx

I've been WTT since I was 17....finally got away from my BF at the time and ended up with my (now) hubby... I was 18 when I met him in person (been talking on the internet for 3 years) and 19 when we got married and then started TTC. I totally understand the painful yearning for a baby of your own.

Now we have one though...I kind of wish we'd waited longer You can be a couple for as long as you want, but as soon as that is gone, you will NEVER just be a couple again. Make the most of it As horrible and tedious as it is, make the most of the waiting.

Oh boy, now I'm starting to sound like an oldie

We're WTT for number 2 now and I am already feeling that horrible pang of 'I wanna do it NOW!' but then DD starts crying and I think....eh, number 2 can wait!

P.S Now that I'm on round 2 of waiting, I am concentrating on saving up as much as possible before we start trying. We ended up having a rush at the end of my pregnancy with DD to get all the necessities (crib, travel system etc...) and it SUCKED. All because we didn't save up and DH assumed and assured me that people would buy us things and so on....Yeah, it sounds stupid now, but he literally wouldn't let me buy crib etc because he was SO sure that his family would get it for us. =/

I'm looking forward to have a HUGE bunch of savings to spend on all the little things we need and WANT for baby number 2!!
