if you are in a relationship with someone now a days you are probably getting "intimate"i know that we all pretty much want to wait a little while before you get pregnant or your girlfriend gets pregnant, i know that i want to wait a little while before i have my own child, maybe its just because i am almost twenty and i don't really want that yet, i mean if it happened i would take care of it and help my girlfriend out, but its just not something i want right now, so what about you, what if you found out today that you were going to have a baby or your girlfriend was going to have a baby? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read and hopefully reply to my discussion, i hope that you all have had a great day and continue to have a great day, thanks again for reading!

Well let me tell you, I was in that predicament already!! When I just turned 20, i decided to sleep with my bf i had had for 3 months. He took it greatfully and left me! Then I missed my period! I called him to tell him that I thought i was preggo and that i was going to the doctors to find out. He said to keep him posted so I did. I went and sure enough I was preggo. I cried my eyes out and was so upset. I didn't know what to do. I was still young and was getting my education. I had only had 1 year of partying and wanted more. Well I decided I was going to be a grown up and take care of my responsibility. I told this to the guy and he said " I'm too young, your choice is your choice but I want nothing to do with it." He changed his number and moved so I couldn't find him. I gave birth to a beautiful little girl who is my life. She is now 5 and I cant imagine life without her. Sure it's hard and costs a lot of money but i'm doing it by myself (well, and my family) and we are fine. All I have to say, is if it happens, please be a responsible grown-up and do the right thing. Be there for your child. They need you.

i would more than happy to welcome my child... i can't say that i've waited for it. but another reason i want to have is im pushing 30 and im not married yet (planning to get married)... whether a child is out of wedlock, or unplanned pregnancy, i will still welcome my baby! can't wait actually to have one!
