Just My 2 Cents And Situation Age 20

BeckyBunny - December 6

Hi! I'm 20 years old. I am not married, but I am engaged and we're getting married November 11, 2008. I had a blighted ovum my first pregnancy, in April 2006. I miscarried again naturally in February of 2007, and was diagnosed with PCOS in April of 2007. Because PCOS is a fertility problem, I will likely have problems with getting pregnant again and being able to carry to term. My fiance has a steady full time job that allows me to not have to work, and we are in the process of buying our own home. We have chosen to start trying now rather than later, so we have as much time as possible in case we encounter more problems. I have a stable group of close friends, and have never been a partier. The "right" age to have kids varies by person, and it's not right to stereotype younger women as incapable or bad mothers just because they are young. I also feel that for me personally starting a family at a young age will allow me to relate better to my children, and allow me to keep up with them better, especially since we want to have several kids. While I don't see why someone would want to wait until 40 to have kids, I don't tell older moms that they will be/are bad moms because they are too old to keep up. Different things are true for different people, and I think it's best to keep situations in mind before stereotyping.
