Well I’m 17 years old, and going to start my senior year this summer. I’ve had the same boyfriend for going on a year now, and he’s the only guy I’ve slept with. Awhile ago we had thought I was pregnant but I had my period. Ever since we’ve decided we wanted to try for one, we love kids and especially each other more than anything. Well since we’ve been trying the numbers about 6 times since last month. I tried taking a test, but it came back negative. I’m not sure when I should try again? My boyfriends dad has also had a hard time having kids, but now he has 3. So I’m not sure if it will happen or not. I know I’m to young, but it’s something I want, and reading everyone’s stories makes me want a baby even more. The only person I have to talk to is my boyfriend and like 1 friend. But I really need someone supportive to talk to too. thankx

It sounds like you and your bf have been together for a long time. You probably will be together for a while longer too!
Have you considered marriage? I know that you want a child, but marriage is the first step toward a child. You said in your post that a child is what YOU wanted. What do you think your child wants?
If it were me I would want to be born into a family where the mother and father were married. That would be giving your child the best. It would be the right thing to do for him or her.
Ask your parents before you get pregnant. If you do become pregnant, you will need their help and support more than anyone else’s (even more than your boyfriends). Make sure they are on-board first.
Consider the cost of a child as well. You might want to think about having a child after you graduate college and have a stable job that can support a child.April 9, 2008 at 7:50 pm #20894Katelyn_Witt
Yeah your right marriage is the way to go, and thank you for giving me some advice. We’ve talked about it and he wants to be married more than anything, but I don’t know what my parents would say, they would just say i’m to young to be married, and to wait till I get out of school. I know my parents would support me, they might be dissappointed at first though. My boyfriend has a full time job, and I work after school, I also have an apartment, so money shouldnt be a huge deal. I’m not sure if I already am, but I know this is what we both want, I talk to him every day about it. We’ve thought it over and still know it’s what we want so idk.
