Was it through choice, and if not what was the hardest challenge you had?

Yes it was through choice. Both myself and my DP (child's father) chose to have a baby.

Although I assume you wouldn't change your baby for the world (hopefully terrible 2s are not an issue for you) but do you ever wish you had maybe waited. Were had a baby whilst your friends are studying, travelling, drinking and generally care free.

I had my first at 21. I wasn't really young, but its considered quite young. I had a time all my friends were so busy being wild or exploring the world, I felt a little isolated.

At 18 I can imagine that would be even tougher for you?

Nope, never wish I had waited. I don't drink, so there is no issue with missing out on parties or nights out. I still have a social life. I haven't missed out on anything so there really isn't anything that I should have waited for.
