You are NOT ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're only 13 and you want a baby. I understand babies are cute and it would be nice to dress them up with their little sweaters, but you're not old or responsible enough. Your reproductive systems aren't even completely done growing. (They aren't really supposed to be used till you're done with puberty). Some thirteen year olds haven't even had their periods yet. You're way too young for sex/pregnancy/childbirth/motherhood/raising a child. You can't even drive yet, for pete's sake! I'm hoping you're not already pregnant, asking this question to see if you should abort or not. Because when you're under 18 or over 35, having an abortion can increase your risk of haivng breast cancer by up to 800%! Don't get pregnant no. Finish your education first. You'll need that education to support any children you do have in the future. P.S. I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm preaching to you, but I had to say some of those things. I'm concerned about you. I'm just a little older than you. (I'll be 14 in November '06). I know I could not handle a baby, and have a fairly large amount of free time. Don't become pregnant as a teen. Its very hard on you and you won't have as much free time to do things. Your grades could suffer and your social life wouldn't be as good. ANSWER
I AM 19 AND I HAVE A YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. I WAS 17 WHEN I GOT PREGNANT. EVEN THOUGH I WAS A LITTLE OLDER, I STILL WASNT READY. I THOUGT I WAS, BUT LOOKING BACK I MISSED OUT ON A LOT AND I WASNT MATURE ENOUGH TO DECIDE TO HAVE A BABY. I REALLY HAD NO IDEA WHAT MOTHERHOOD REALLY MENT. MY SISTER IN LAW IS 13 AND I LOOK AT HER AND THINK NO WAY IN HELL IS SHE READY TO HAVE A BABY. I KNOW THAT NOT ALL TEENS ARE THE SAME, AND SOME ARE MORE MATURE THAN OTHERS BUT IN MY OPINION 13 OR 14 IS WAYY TO YOUNG. LIVE YOUR LIFE AND ENJOY BEING A KID WHILE YOU STILL CAN. HAVING A CHILD IS A BEAUTIFUL THING WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT !!
