and I have got a boyfriend that is long tearm, I hope

the "I hope" sends off red flags. have you talked to him about it? does he want a baby?
babies need stability and constant attention... that means you give up your social life.
why don't you and your "long term" boyfriend try taking care of a pet together first, and see what you can both handle.

That's so trashy...two years from now you will be living alone on welfare after your long term boyfriend gives you the boot. Then, you will be a young single mom trying to raise a child...don't do it, you WILL regret it. You have plenty of time. You do sound pretty smart though.. "I ain't pregnant..."

Should I give up my baby?

ANSWER #9 of 30

Having a baby isn't all fun and games. im 18 and have a 7 month old. its hard! social life is gone.. and you said you dont even know if your boyfriend will stick around to wait and have a baby.. that should send a message to you right away. raising a baby is hard.. and on your own is even harder. im lucky b/c I have support and I am currently in college. but babies..
cry all night and day long
sleep is a word that is going to mean a lot to you!
crib, clothes, formula, diapers, carseat...etc
formula 25 a can .. last a week maybe?
diapers 15 a pack last a couple days..

you are not ready

Should I have a baby?
ANSWER #10 of 30

I'm 18 and pregnant, and I just thought I'd fill you in on what I'm going through. Might shed a light on your clouded dream of what it is to have a baby.. it's not all hugs and kiss filled with love and smiles. It's hard work that needs 24 hr care. You shouldn't rush into this.. please just seriously think about it before you get pregnant because it's not just about what you want. There'll be a baby involved in all of this and it deserves the best and if that means waiting until you're 20 .. then so be it.


Is this stupid to you?
ANSWER #11 of 30

I had a kid when I was 18 but it was not planned it takes a lot of work. I had to get a full time job not go to school I work 56 hours a week to support her. if your going to do it you need make sure your boyfriend wants to because it is a bad idea to go against his wishes too because you loose your social life right away and if he is not willing to do that you might end up raising your kid on your own. that is a decision you need to make if your willing to do that if you think your strong enough and really want this I say go for it but make sure you have the right kind of support and the right life good luck

ANSWER #13 of 30

why are u talking to me again kiasu ?
I changed it as I wanted to get from u

ANSWER #14 of 30

I think 18s quite young, I have a baby sister, and I look after her a lot, and it's HARD WORK, and I'm not even looking after her all the time.

Babies cry all night, and are sick, and poop.

But, yeh, they're cute, and it's so amazing to watch them grow up !

But I would think that you want a life instead of just being a Mom ?

What about working in a nursery for a while, and seeing how you can cope with all the icky things of babies.

And, how would you provide for the baby, and would your boyf stick around, and where would you live ?

Sorry if I seem negative, I'm just trying to help :)

ANSWER #16 of 30

I'm an advisor Tammy, I look through ALL the questions posted.

I'm sorry you dont like my advice when it is constructive and designed to help. If that is the case, I would suggest that you just ignore it.

You make me laugh. You change your name and then keep your photo and the same type of questions.

You cant hide from people on here Tammy because people that are just attention seekers will always keep posting the same type of questions but just reword them slightly.

Doesnt matter if you call yourself sexylittletinker, sexylittlebarbie, barbieface or tiny_tinkerbell.

In my opinion, you dont like my replies NOT because I am being horrible to you but because they catch you out with your lies and contradictions and the fact that you keep changing your stories.

It is not just me that will notice this Tammy, other members are clever enough to notice this as well.

As I said, if you dont like my advice, the same as advice from general members, please feel free to ignore it.

Take care
