WTT At 18?


I just changed my status as WTT so here i am Hello Ladies!!!!!

I feel crazy cuz im so so broody! The thing is im 18 in full time education, part time job, living at home and only been with my OH for just over 6 months (out of my mind in love with this one).

Hade a pregnancy scare in september, me and OH talked about it and decided we would keep it if i was and to be honest i was really excited. I never really thought about babies till then. I was 4 days late when i took a test and it come back with and in all honesty i was heartbroken . Since then all i can think about is babies babies BABIES!!!

I read through the teen pregnancy forum and i feel so jelous of these girls i really want a baby! I know its not practical and im being down right silly but i cant help it .

Me and OH talk about babies now and we decided we do want children and he said to wait till we have our own place (which will be years away as im about to start a 3 year hairdressing course). I honestly dont think i can wait that long! It sounds silly but it feels like its breaking my heart, when i see babies/toddlers on the street i just yern for my own!

I know i should get my education out the way, get a job and support myself before even considering a baby! So i guess im WTT *sigh* Don't know how long ill have to wait though

Thanks for reading ladies

Hon, I was in a similar position to you when I was 18! I had just moved to a new town for university and started a new relationship with the guy who is now my husband. We had a pregnancy scare after being together about a month and, whilst I knew it wasn't practical and that children shouldn't have been on the agenda and I was terrified, when the tests came up negative I was absolutely gutted as I'd got myself used to the idea and had started to get excited. This was 4 years ago now and we got married and started trying for a baby in April this year. We're still not as financially stable as would be ideal but we're living together in a flat we've been renting for 2 years and the timing just felt right. I won't lie to you, the wait was horrendous. It still is horrendous, to be honest. There were times when my broodiness got completely overwhelming and it hurt. And I'm not going to say that the time flies by because it doesn't: 3 years feels like 3 years. But really, despite it hurting and being incredibly difficult, I'm glad that I waited because I wouldn't have been quite as ready for a baby as I am now. I'm sick and tired of waiting and I want a baby NOW with more urgency than I have ever felt before, but I remember how frustrating it was to be waiting to try and know that I can be patient for just a little longer!

Hi hun

Thought I would jump in on this one since i'm about to turn 20, met BF when I was 17, and wanted a baby since 18/19.

I know this isn't what you want to hear but I definitely think you should wait to move out at least. My BF and I have had our own place since May this year and are WTT February 2011. We had a pregnancy scare about 3 months into our relationship (just before I turned 18) and I knew we weren't ready for kids but still was really disappointed when it was a BFN. I'm totally broody too! I finished college July 2009 and got myself and job and saved to move out. If you focus on that rather than how much you want a LO it goes so quickly! I'm so glad we did wait because I can't imagine having a baby whilst we lived in a room at my mum's house!

Ultimately its your choice hun but thats just my experience

Thank You Lubbird It's nice to know im not alone.
I know i should wait, its a matter of head vs heart (and hormones)
If it happend now id have to live off benifits for the first few years of LO's life and i REALLY do not want to do that after watching my mum struggle on benifits :/
Im going to try and nuckle down hopefully it'll distract me from babies.
Will not stop me from coming on here though, its rather adictive

I don't think you sound crazy. A friend of mine had her LO when she was 15 and had always been keen on kids. Shes an amazing mum! I'm planning on having my first when i'm 21 (FX BFP doesnt take too long!). Mega jealous of you!

Yeah right now im just like mad.

Hi
I am in a situation so much like yours! except that me and my boyfriend have been together almost 3 and a half years, we had a scare 5 months into our relationship and then after a year and a half I got pg accidentally and had a mc. ever since the first scare i have kept wanting to get pregnant, it's awful I know and I'm sorry to say it won't go away - luckily my boyfriend is on board but we can't do it yet even though we want to as we both live at my mums, he's just got made redundant and I'm starting a degree in midwifery next year and that's 3 years feels like ages before we'll be able to

glad to know someone else is going through this torment sounds awful but it's comforting haha i really do know how you feel


hope you feel better about it sooon xxxx
