Hi there, well I'm 32 and have 2 little boys and its the hardest thing Ive ever done. All of my mates from school had babies by age 18, now with 20 20 hindsight they all wish they had waited, none of them are with there kids father any more, there relationships buckled under the pressure of parent hood.
I was lucky to see my 18th birthday, i was abused as a child and left home at 16 and moved in with my boyfriend who promptly started abusing me, by 17 i was a fully fledged injecting heroin addict and all that comes with it, i got down to 42kg stopped menstruating my kidneys where failing, what a mess!! I detoxed by myself all alone, and it was fucking torture. but i got through it, and made a life for myself and now I'm struggling with myself each day hoping I'm giving my boys the basis for a great life, and meeting all there needs, luckily they have a great dad who is kind and hard working, a great role model. its true that you cant even fathom the overwhelming emotions you will experience as a mother, and if you can wait a few more years, you should. I should also mention that things can go wrong like miscarriage, still birth, etc, i experienced complications with the birth of my first son, as a result i spent 3 months on a walking frame and have had 3 reconstructive surgeries, and still have pelvic pain every day. I'm sure that some thing like that wont happen to you, its pretty rare, but you shouldn't rush, just enjoy your life for a while before you bring some one else into it. Good luck!
