It defintely wasnt for me and I loved having my freedom to travel and do whatever I wanted throughout my 20’s, but just cause I can’t imagine myself doing it doesn’t mean I think you’re crazy FOR doing it.  If it works for you and you’re happy with the decision to have one now, then that’s all that matters.  My mother had me when she was younger than you as well and I love have such a ‘young mother’.

I had my son at 19 as a single mother. It was not easy, there were many things I had to give up. But I wouldn’t trade it for a second. I had already been through my partying stage so I didn;t feel as though I had to give that up. For me it was schooling. I ended up working in a field  Icould care less about. But as long as there was a place to live and some luxuries I figured we were not bad off.

Most people see your 20’s as party time, but it is not for everyone. Tell them to put a sock in it…lol. Seriously though, if you were in yoru 30’s they would be asking why you waited so long. Just ignore it.

I’m only 23! I’ll be 24 when baby is born and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve always wanted to be a “younger” mom. I haven’t gotten any slack for it though…

My mom was done having kids by the time she was 24 and I love that she is a young mom. I joke with her that she could give me a little brother/sister still before I have kids (that always earns me a death stare). I met my Darling Husband kind of young but things just aren’t working out for us to have kids young, I’ll probably be 27 or so. If it had worked out earlier it would have been nice but it didn’t! I say whatever works for you!

We are in our early 20s and will be ttc in 2012.  Of all my high school friends who are married, we are the only couple with no kids (some kids were planned, some not.)  Our families would actually probably prefer that we wait, but it is our decision and we feel confident in it.  They will come around when we are actually expecting, because we are much more prepared re: money, education, etc than a lot of family members whose babies were very much wanted.  It was the same way with getting married: at first, there was a little resistance , and now, it’s a non-issue.  I think younger women who want to get married, have babies, etc need to just have thick skin. πŸ™‚

I’m in my late 20’s, but I feel like there would def be perks to being a little younger. You need lots of energy to raise a baby!

If you ready , I think its fine! A while ago we would probably all be pregnant by 18. Its personal and cultural these days πŸ™‚

I’m a product of a young mother, and everyone is fine and didn’t suffer tremendously. Sacrifice is part of life!

I had my son when I was 19 and I was SO glad that I was young and that I would STILL be young when he was grown. I’m now 26 and pregnant with my 2nd and it’s definitely harder on the body.. an “easier” pregnancy in regards to less ms and such but I’m MUCH more tired than I was with DS and I take better care of myself now than I did then… sigh

I’m glad I was young and will still be relatively young when I’m DONE poppin out the youngins. lol

I had my daughter at 20. I’m 21 and she’s a year and a half now. It’s not easy or perfect but I’m glad I had her when I did.
