Anonymous asked: is it strange that i really wish i could trade lives with you right now? how you're excited to have a baby and have a supporting boyfriend and that's crazy to wish teen pregnancy upon myself, but i know won't be able to have kids on my own one day..
PLEASE wait until you’re out of college atleast, if not until you’re married. Don’t get me wrong, Jesse and Skylar are the best things that have ever happened to me, and we’ve managed to make the best of everything with the help of our families and a little extra motivation. However, it is still VERY difficult. Being pregnant is very stressful, and very expensive. I for one can afford my medical bills but actually getting them done, on time, and knowing you have them is extremely frustrating sometimes. Especially when you have 2 emergency room visits to pay for like myself (thanks god for good health insurance!). Not to mention all of the physical and emotional changes. Pregnancy hormones are everything you hear about them and MORE. And it never helps to not be able to tie your own shoes by yourself or even shave your own legs. I was very convinced that I wouldn’t be able to either, and hell, I might even still never be able to have another one, but there is a lot of fertility help out there these days. My older sister was told two years ago that if she didn’t get pregnant then, that she wouldn’t ever and now she’s 8 months! This situation has been a huge blessing and has done more for me than it has against me, but that isn’t the way it works for everyone. It is a lot of work and a big commitment, and it is ultimately best to wait until you and the father KNOW you are ready.
