I'm 20 and am 32 weeks pregnant w/ my second child. I got pregnant with my son Matthew when I was 18, and although he's the love of my life, and I can't wait till little Andrew gets here, I would advise against acting on your craving. I love being a mom, but it is very hard. I am very fortunate to have a loving family who helps me through everything. My advice to you is wait, a child is a life altering decision.

i know exactly how you feel. at 16 i thought i didne whether or not i got pregnant. my boyrfriend and i werent careful, and i got pregnant. i thought i would be so happy, but from the moment i found out i had a reality check real bad. my life was turned upside down. between school, parents, friends it was horrible. i was ashamed of myself and hated what i had done. i let myself gain 40 pounds in like 2 1/2 months. and my boyfriend supported me the entire time. it still didint matter, because theres a big difference between thinking you want something and actually getting it. so i had just started to get used to the idea and then i had a miscarriage. i was hurt because it is a very painful and straining thing to go through. but finally i realized it was for the best and i needed to focus my life on being a kid and not trying to grow up so much faster then nature intends. i got on birth control and lived life up for the next two years. then when i graduated my boyfriend and i bought a puppy. honestly, buy a small puppy, and take it everywhere with you. once you realize how hard it is just to take care of a dog. you will realize you do not want to have a child. trust me...now we are 19 we have two dogs, our own apartment, and cars. and you know. we struggle. i cant emagine having a child too on top of eveything else we have to deal with being on our own for the first time in our lives. we both decided we dont want chiildren until we have our own home. which we are saving for and our planning on purchasing when our lease is up in june. and now i fear i might be pregnant again. i told my boyfriend and he supports me only because by time it is born (if so) we will have our own home and we will both be 20. believe me, you will struggle enought in life. you dont need a child on top of it. wait until you at least have a home to bring it home to.
hope this helps...

i have the same \"cravings\" i'm 17( 18 in nov- 6 months) I want a baby so incredibly bad. My boyfriend and i both want to have a baby, but at the same time we realize we're not old enough. Its kind of depressing sometimes when you want something so desperately bad and you can't. i know deep down that i'm most likely not ready, but i can't stop it either. I also went to throught the whole, thinking i'm pregnant thing, and it just makes the \"craving\" worse. even though i know all the hardships. i know how much everything would cost, but i can't stop craving either... i guess its just that strong desire in us to be mommys. nothing wrong with it.. as long as u dont go out of ur way to have a baby.

I have baby cravings as well but when it comes down to a pregnancy scare I freek out. I started babysitting young ones and my cravings went away, I'm 18 w/baby cravings and I've had them for about a year now. The point is, maybe if you babysit, your cravings will go away because you have a little something (even though that little something is not yours) to take your baby cravings away. :) But wait until you are ready and stable enough for a kid. I know it's hard at times, but it will be well worth the wait. And your future baby will be happy you waited, so will you.

:) Hello, first let me introduce myself, my name is Renee, but you can call me Butterfly. Second of all I know exactly how you feel. I am 22yrs old and I have been wanting a baby since I was 14yrs old. I am now married and trying to get pregnant. I would suggest that you wait until you finish school and have a good paying job first. You think you know everything there is to know about having a baby, but you don't. What are you suppose to do if a baby has a seizer?What do you do if a baby is choking? What do you do if a baby is a bleeder? What do you do if a baby has colac? There are alot of other things that you need to know and look into before having a baby. I have to go, but I will keep in touch. I will be back later to talk to you. I hope this helps you out.
