lol....it wasnt easy but i had a very supportive mum, bless her. To be honest i wasnt half as stressed out as i am with this one, i think at that age you have less fear of the unknown.my daughter was such a good baby as well which made life easier i guess and she is still a little angel now.
Looking back i think 16 was quite young for me to be havin a baby but to any other 16yr old mum to be, dont let anyone tell you your not good enough cause people turned their noses up at me but im ok!!
you have to just get on with these things in life and dont look back in anger! oooh check me out getting all serious at this time of night! lol

I stil dnt think I could have coped.

I was too irresponsible =]

My sis, who just turned 18, is pregnant and everylone is telling her that she's too young. Personally I say if she wants the baby then let her have the baby, its her life and all we cn do is support her.

My mum doesnt share my view.

mums can be like that with daughters though i guess. as long as your sister is happy and its what she really wants then nobody will be able to stop her anyway, good luck to her. have you told her about this web site?

One thing I do know about at least is pregnacy =]

In a way it has kinda brought us close together as we didnt really speak before. But nw im moving up near where to where she is il be able to help out more.

I think mum is upset as she isnt going to uni but she can always do that when the babu is older.

yeah theres no reason why not, i joined the army when my daughter was 4, she travelled with me most of the time , well not when i went to iraq but all the places in this country. so having a child doesnt mean your life is wasted by far, if anything it gave me the incentive to do more so as i could provide for her.
