It's definitely tough. I'll be 18 on monday, and my little man is due January 24th. It's definitely really difficult being so young, and be in charge of another person's life other than your own, especially when that person's life means more to you than anything. I was an emotional wreck all day yesterday. It's going to be hard, and no one is going to completely understand if they haven't been in your shoes before. I didn't come close to comprehending how much work it would be to become a mom until I got pregnant.. now I get it. It's difficult for anyone, but especially hard when you're still growing up yourself. It'll be okay though, there are more people that understand than you might realize. lmk if you need anything. (:
Well congratulations to both you girls (I realize you had your baby in august Tazi, so late congrats to ya [: ). Teen parenting definitely is a really great task and its not always the easiest, but if you can manage to figure out a way to cope when things are hard it makes life much better. talking is one of the best ways to cope, IMO.
I can relate to what you're both saying, as i became pregnant & had my first son at the age of 16. He is going to be 2 in January, and I can't say I've ever been more proud of anything in my life. Seeing everything that he has learned and how much smarter he gets with each day makes all those hard days worth it.
I'm also 39wks 5d pregnant with a second son. I'm still 18, and will be 19 in February. Needless to say I'm really nervous. I mean single parenting is hard. single teen parenting is harder; and now single parenting of two seems like its going to be impossible. But I remember i have my mom supporting me, no matter what happens. I would probably be going crazy if I didn't have that support, whether its talking or otherwise. So if I could help another mom, I'd be really glad (:
Anyways, enough rambling lol I hope you find some support somewhere, from something/someone. (: best of luck to all of you and don't forget to reach out if needed!! (:
congrats for the 3 of you. i am no longer a teen im almost 30 i have 3 kids with one on the way my oldest is 11 she was born almost 6 weeks after i turned 17 i was married then and we were on our own. but its not easy at no point to be a teen mom. my wishes to all of you that are doing it. and being good at it. parenting that is, I have a wish for you that if you haven't yet, a tleast try for the G.E.D. or high school diploma the jobs these days are harder and harder to get/find exspecially if you dont have an education. ive been there and done that sorry for sounding wierd but i just wish the best and if i could help some teen parent see what it is going to be like in the next 7-10 years i just want to help
