Having a baby is a wonderful thing. The question you need to ask yourself is "am I really ready to have a baby?" Are you financially stable? Will the father be there to help? Are you physically and mentally stable to care for a child? Do you plan on continuing your education? All of these things and more come in to play when considering having a baby. Once you have a baby, it's no long just about you. No more parties or girls night out. You have to make sure to tend to any and every of the babies needs. I'm not going to say have a baby or don't have a baby, thats really up to you. Just make sure you are really ready to have a kid.
Honey as long as you can love and support your baby then you do what you want to do. You don't have to be rich or old to have one. My friend is 27 years old and has 5 children who she takes care of all by herself. She is a wonderful mother who does Touch For Health as work. She has a house and a vehicle. Im 21 not single with 2 children who are happy and healthy and I am an admin assistant. Don't let anyone say you can't have girls nights out or anything because you can. Having a baby does not make you lose your life, but fulfills it in ways you never imagined. Hope you find your answers. Good luck!
Wait another 2-4 years!!! You never know what could happen with you and your boyfriend. Spend some time around kids to know what you are in for , its VERY hard! I have twins and its hard because its constant work. So when you're ready to give up your life and time so you can spend 100% of it with your kids to make sure they grow up healthy and smart, then you're ready... Don't have kids before you know what you are in for because it isn't fair to them if you aren't ready!!! But besides the work its the most beautiful feeling in the world being a parent and you wont regret it :) !
I say that if your in a good relationship and you both are in agreement then go for it!!! BUT if you are a smoker..STOP...if you take birth control...STOP...and if you do any type of drugs ( weed ) then..STOP and everytime you are done with sex...put your feet up..elevate them...trust me I am now pregnant with my 4th child...and my doctor told me about this so now I am telling you because you want to try...GOOD LUCK..tell me when you concieve!!!

Did you know if you have two kids before age 30 you drastically reduce your risk of uterine and ovarian cancer?
I am 26, had my first baby at 20, and now am on my second.
As long as Daddy and you are there to love and nurture... there is always a way to have what you want.
But remember... Babies are work, not just now, but for the next 18 years you must love and support them!
I am way to young nut my aunt was a late person (She is 35 and is having her baby in june) I am saying this because I think you should wait until you are 27 but it is totally up to you and the male so it is up to to you. but think about it, you are in college probally and you are just finding a home so if I were you, I would wait until you are settled in your home.
it may be smart to be married then youll know you can trust the guy! plus you want a stable job and def some money. I don't know because im sure you can think of a million things to do before you have to have that baby maby you should wait! and again make sure your spouse is ready! plus have fun and party not to crazy but have some fun a child will slow you down
I think it's too young. I'm 20 and I'll never even consider having children at this age.
Also most people are not very financiall stable and able to support a baby at 21.
Plus, don't you still have things you want to do before you have children?
I personally think you are ready to have a baby when: You are confident you can support the baby financially and emotionally You will love and nuture the baby You can give the baby a good life.
well if you want a baby then have one its better to have it not to ealier and not to old about in the 20-25 you should (well I think anyways)
girl you still very jong and with a baby theres no more fun so please for get about it.
Married, financially stable, loving home, yes.
