Thanks, my sweet! ^.^ I'm a little bit older than you... I'm 23. I'll be 24 in September. I'm still pretty young, but all of my sister's and my Mom had babies before my age, and I'm over the party phase. I'd much rather go to the park with my dogs or cuddle at home with my boyfriend than go raving/partying with my friends, so getting pregnant isn't a huge lifestyle change. The Dad, however, is 17! Omg that's a different story. He had a fake ID (that said he was 22) and I didn't know his real age until after I got pregnant. It was crazy, because I was always like "you totally act like a Libra... I can't believe you aren't a Libra!" and he actually is a Libra. I guess I sensed it deep down, but I even asked his friends his age and they covered for him. I felt stupid for believing that for 6 months, and I felt so lied to and broke up with him. But he won me back way before I even found out I was pregnant. He'll be 18 before the baby's born so it's not that embarassing, but I feel weird about it. I've never dated anyone younger than me. I really love him & I've never felt this way about anyone. He seems older than me! Not 17. We're inseparable, constantly laughing at each other and we tell each other everything that we've never told anyone. He loves doing dog stuff with me & he's so cute with my dogs and so sweet, and always wants to be with me, not out partying like all of his friends. He's a pro skateboarder and manages a skate shop so he makes a TON of money for some one his age, way more than me, he's very driven to save up money for his child. If he wasn't this amazing I really don't know what I'd do. But he has totally stepped up and loves me. I know we'll be amazing parents and we can definitely provide a stable home for a child. It's crazy, and my super conservative family is not happy about it, but I feel like everything happens for a reason and we're both really excited. Sorry for such a long spiel, it really isn't relevant to the thread... but I don't talk to that many people about the situation so it's nice to get it out even though it's awkward. So many people told me to get an abortion, or put my child up for adoption, and I couldn't even imagine that. I know there's a situation for both of those options but I do not feel my situation is anywhere near that. We're responsible, mature, loving people who want to get married and have a family together. We wanted to do that before I ever ever thought I could possibly get pregnant. The timing is off but that happens a lot in life.
