RANT RANT RANT
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN WE PLEASE STOP GLORIFYING WOMEN YOUNGER THAN 25 BEING PREGNANT?! CAN WE ALL JUST STOP?!
There is NOTHING to be proud of by being pregnant that early. You’re life is effectively OVER. I don’t care what any of you think, its over. It is nearly impossible to be in your early…
What the fuck did I just read?!
I’m 8 weeks pregnant and turning 20 in four months and my partner will be 21 in four months, also. My partner and I both have good, well paying jobs and can certainly afford to have a baby. We have an extremely loving and supportive relationship. We are first home owners and we truly don’t believe that our lives are “over”. We are homebody people as it is so it’s no drama that we can’t go partying or do drugs anymore because we never really did that before I fell pregnant.
And as for discovering “who we are”, we already know who we are. Being young doesn’t mean that you’re lost or clueless.
Just because we’re having a baby it doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to do what we’re passionate about or see the world or have good nights. It may be harder to do those things because we’re having a baby, but it doesn’t matter what age you are when you have a baby, things get harder regardless!
I’ll admit, a couple of months ago I would have agreed with that rant, but now that I’m pregnant, I don’t. I do know that my partner and I may be in the minority group of people having babies at a young age, but idiots like whoever wrote that rant need to understand that everybody is different and quite frankly I find it insulting that they would put my partner and I in the same category as other pregnant young adults that don’t have their shit together.
Nobody is the same, stop being so ignorant, people!
