too young

Quote From: angel87

 I am 5 months 18 years old and i really am dying to have a baby but how will i know whenn i am really ready for the child and that i will be a good parent because afcourse nothing but the best for you're child..
Please help me..

I had a child when I was 16, and decided to give her up for addoption.  I know I would not have been able to give her all of the things that she deserved (emotionally and financially), even though I loved her with all my heart.  It was by far one of the most difficult decisions I ever had to make or will make in my life.   

Recently, I found her on the internet, but I have not contacted her as I would want her to contact me when SHE is ready.  I know that she has had a good life, and is now attending a private Christian college.  I know I would not have been able to provide that for her, let alone get my own college degree.   

I know how strong the desire to have a child can be.  My husband and I are trying to concieve, and have been unsuccessful so far.  I do feel that I am in a much better position in my life to be a mother though.  Enjoy the freedom of your younger years, as it doesn't last.  Motherhood is a lifelong responsibility.

Am I too old to get pregnant?

Hi, I'm recently re-married. I have a 9 yr old daughter from my previous marriage. My new hubby has never had any children and tho , loves my daughter as his own, would love to have a child. He is 38 yrs old. I'm 44 yrs old.  I am so worried that I'm to old to concieve. We've been trying since August but nothing so far! Any thoughts?

  • You are a baby. Having one will not get you back with your boyfriend. He will not be around and you will be left for all the care of the baby. Go to school, get a good job and then meet a nice boy get married and have as many as you like.

 Honey, I was exactly the same way when I was your age.  But listen, I am 23 now, have been to college, have a car, and have tons of family support.  I'm a single mom of a 5-month-old boy, and it's not easy NOW!!  I am happy to have him, but I wish with all my heart that I was married, had a house of my own, and had total financial security.  I could have enjoyed my pregnancy so much more with a husband, and every day I'm reminded that I'm a single mom.  Chances are pretty good that if you had a baby now, the father wouldn't stick around.

Think....if it is hard for me, a college graduate, at 23, just imagine how it would be for you, at 15, and not out of high school.  Do your future child a favour and wait.  Remember, this is not a BABY you are talking about, it's a CHILD...a whole other PERSON, who's life will forever be affected by your decisions.  Give him/her the best chance in life...wait a few years...it may seem a long way off now, but trust me, one day you will wonder where all the time has gone!

hey  

  

you not to old trust me, my uncle and his wife did not start having kids till she was 45 and he was 51 the only down side is u could have more than one baby and also the birthdefects are higher. my uncles kids are fine and healthy. try going to your docter to find out if he could help you with the process you no if you cant have a child,  but i no u can ask him  if he wants to then adopt he new what he was getting him self in to when he married. you already have a child and you are at the age were some women hit the CHANGE in life but i would not sweat it just try this ok, dont try so hard just relax if theres any stress in your life get rid of it go on a vacation start eating better start taking care if your self and god will do the rest. and if it dont work look in to fertility pills you no.

Getting Pregnant

Quote From: karlbarth

Here it goes. I hope someone can help me. I just found out that my wife is pregnant with our third child, problem is I never wanted another one. Those reasons have nothing to do with this post. My issue is that I am 99.9% sure that I was tricked into this. I am plannng on getting a vasectomy soon and had told my wife that. She always wanted another but I was always against it. Now I find out that she is pregnant and I am very angry with her over this possible deception. My anger is consumimg me. I want to tell her but am worried about the health of her and the child, but I am afraid that this has caused irreperable damage already. Anyone out there in a similiar spot or know of others. Help!!! 

hey

Getting Pregnant

Quote From: kimkeyes

My husband and I have been trying for 6 years and I've had several miscarriages. Now I'm struggling to conceive again, and I'm wondering what really helps when TTC.  

Is it better for him to be on top? 

Does hip elevation help afterwards? 

Any helpful tips anyone can offer? 

Thank you, 

Kim 

  

relax, any thing stressfull in your life get rid of it eat healthy and do not let things bother you and also work out go for a run or a walk is your job hard on you try to get a bit of the work load off of you and on to some on else for a bit u no and just stop trying so hard when u get the news your having a baby take it easy and go right to the docter  and get him to look at u every week or take fertility pills they work. good luck

you should not have sexual intercourse until you are properly married in the eyes of the church and in the eyes of god.having sexual intercourse before marriage is called fornication.if you would of pursued having this baby you would of ended up committing fornication in the 1st place.1 corinthians 6:13 meats for the belly and the belly for meats.god shall destroy both it and them.now the body is not for fornication but for the lord and the lord for the body.i think that 15 yrs.old is way too young to have a baby any way.i would suggest that you abstain from all sexual intercourse until you are properly married.
