Was wondering if there is anyone out there who is of a similar age to me and also pregnant? I'm almost 20 and found out I'm 9 weeks preggers!
Looking for a bit of support really for people of the same age going through the same things as me smile

I was 24 when I had my first, my cousin was 15 while pregnant and 16 when she gave birth!

She is a fantastic mother smile

HI all

I'm 19 and 13 weeks pregnant with my 1st. Be great to get to know some of you as none of my friends have babies so I'm a bit on my own

I had my 1st at 21, I'm now 28 & expecting dc5 in August.

Hi all!
Thanks for the replies I honestly didn't think i'd get any!
Yeah I'm really really excited just had issues with telling parents & they're quite disappointed in me I think :/ anyone else have this?
How is everyone getting along with their pregnancies? X

Firstbaby220817 Wed 15-Mar-17 13:38:21

Im 18 and 17 weeks pregnant with a little boy!
Me and My partner bought a house so wasn't too bad telling parents in fact they are all super excited!
I am nervous about being a young mum and getting all the stigma etc. Cannot wait to hold little one!

Luna4689 Wed 15-Mar-17 15:29:17

First where abouts do you live? Soooo difficult for me a partner to find somewhere around here so it's a killer honestly! Congratulations! X

Hi Luna,

We live in Swindon, how about you?

How is your pregnancy going?

Luna4689 Wed 15-Mar-17 20:31:47

I'm in Chippenham!
It's going okay at the moment. Had some heartburn but other than that it's been fine! How's yours?

MamaTT Wed 15-Mar-17 20:35:09

I'm 25 now. Was 18 having DD, 20 having DS and I'm 23 weeks pregnant with DD2. I love being a young mum. My kids are my best friends. The 3 of us have been through a tough time together and we're a proper little team.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Wed 15-Mar-17 21:05:38

just had issues with telling parents & they're quite disappointed in me I think :/ It gets no better the older you get! I was 26 when I was pregnant with dc4 my mother's reaction when I told her? "Oh for gods sake not again" my Gran's reaction? "this is just getting ridiculous now". We didn't even tell dhs dad he just found out on the grapevine. My dad is always supportive though smile although he did laugh at me & ask if I was joking when I told him about dc5 but said congratulations as soon as I proved it with a scan photo. As he said it's up to me & dh, we're the ones that have to support & care for our dc, no one else.

Hi Luna,

Gosh that's so close!
Do you have any friends that are also pregnant? I feel so alone here!

Yeah it's good, had cramps all day today, little one is not happy at all!

user1481490957 Thu 16-Mar-17 00:14:23

Im 20 and 32 weeks pregnant, will be 21 11 days after dd due date. I'm lucky to have a supportive family who took my pregnancy really positivly. I really dont think age matters in 'how good a mum people will be' smile

Luna4689 Thu 16-Mar-17 10:55:16

First yeah I know that's crazy haha! Nope no friends that are pregnant but have friends who have had babies so they are quite supportive!

User I agree with you, I don't think age matters at all but my families issue was my partner. Let's say he's not built bridges with my family at all haha!
