qnnfrtti - September 4

I am so happy that I have found this forum!! I am a 19 year old full time college student and more than anything I want a baby!!! I am actually waiting to start my period tomorrow,and I hope it doesn't come!! I am obsessed with babies, and I know that there is more to having a baby than just giving birth...and I am ready for the responsibility! i have been trying to conceive since february....I am getting tired of the monthly waits that upset me everytime! I believe in the concept that it will happen when the time is right, but to be completely honest...I hope the time is right now! All of those reading this, that are in the same current situation, please contact me at cttharpe@yahoo.com !! I would love to hear from you all! Oh yeah, I am not trying to have a fatherless child....I have been with my current boyfriend for almost a year and have known him for almost 4!! Good luck to all and happy baby making!

I got married a little over a year ago, on July 3, 2004. I am now 20 and I really want us to have a baby as well. A few of my friends have babies, and I hate having to be the one sitting in envy. A friend of mine and her husband who got married in Jan, 2005 are already trying, she too is 20. My husband says that he wants to wait until we have a house. He is down with college and has a great job- with plenty of room for advancement, and I am still in college to be a Nurse. It is going to take me another 2-3 years to finish my degree. Oh well.... Baby Dust to everyone else....

i'm 21 i have a 16month old daughter and i'm 5 weeks pregnant and i have not yet finished college and now that im having another baby i have to push school back again i love my child and i'm excited to be pregant but i wish i had finished college before starting a family because it is going to be difficult to go now while working full time and taking care of a baby so i would suggest finishing college first and if not it will be much harder unless you don't have to work good luck

Is ther any way you can take a break from the college course you are on. I understand where you are coming from as I am 21 and trying for a baby. I would put anything on hold to have one even if it is not a very sensible decision as having a baby is one of the most important things to me. You could quit your courtse and then start again in a few years but really I think the sensible thing to do would be to finish the course. You could get pregnant about six months before the end of the course.

It is up to you and your husband, not your mom. I know what you mean though. I'm 22 and married and thinking about having a baby. If you want to talk, you can email me at jenny1606492@yahoo.com.

I had my first child when I was 17 I refused to have another one until my boyfriend (now husband) and I were married and on our feet. After so much resistance from my first preg, I was very hesitant to try again. Now I go to a private college and take accelerated night cla__ses so that I can work full time, go to school full time and I still feel like I have a great family life. It is totally up to you and your husband- and if you do choose to start a family just know that there are ways to go to school and have a family! Best wishes, Angela

sheena, i am 20 also and pregnant now. I couldnt be happier, and my mom also wanted me to finish college, but now that she knows, all that matters is a healthy wonderful miracle! each person is different and there is no magical age to have a baby! Whenever you are emotionally and financially ready, i say go for it!

I have a very similar situation. I just got married three months ago. I want a baby so bad, have always felt really strongly about wanting children. Our families say enjoy your marriage wait a couple years. But I would really enjoy having a baby, its what I really want more than anything. I dont mind cutting back and not haveing alot because I feel my child is worth it. Im 22 and my husband is 26 and I would like to enjoy my children while younger and I would like our parents to be able to enjoy them and my grandparents to know them. I am also in college, but will finish next July. My husband is kinda hesitant but the more we have talked about it and the reasons I have given him for wanting a child the more I think he is getting use to the idea. He told me maby the end or first of the year we can really start talking about it because by then I will have graduated a few months before having the baby. My mother is also against having a baby. I think she is more afraid of my marriage not working out and me being alone to raise a child. Me and my husband have had some problems but who doesnt. We love each other very much, we dont believe in divorce and we always work our problems out. I told my husband I didnt think my mom would never be okay with it, just like she was against our marriage at first but finally she realized it was going to happen and had to be apart of it. I would also like some input. Thnx.
