Why do teen girls WANT to get pregnant?

Ugh I am just baffled by this! Why would you want to have a baby at 15 or 16? I mean come on your a child yourself! I am a teen mom. I got pregnant at 17. I know I know dumb right? Well 3 days after we found out i was pregnant my boyfriend came to my house sat my family down and told us he was going to enlist in the Army to support us. I was furious because i thought of all the time i was going to have to be alone and raising our child without him. Well that was the best decision he has ever made, I am 18 now and he is 19, we have a beautiful 7 months old daughter named Hailynn. We are on our own away from our family and doing well. I consider myself lucky to have a husband like him (we married 8 months ago) So my ? is why do these girls WANT to get pregnant when they don’t even know if they can support a child? Not only financially but emotionally! I mean i would feel guilty if we couldn’t provide for our child they way we do. I was with my husband for 2.5 years before i got pregnant and i still was preparing to raise my daughter on my own. So what makes these girls think their bf of 5 months is gonna stick around to help? I am just completely dumbfounded by this! Whats the harm in waiting?!

Because they’re ignorant in what really happens when you have a baby. They think having a baby is going to give them some kind of completeness and that their going to be with the father for the rest of their lives. This is a news flash for all the teens spreading their legs 70 percent of males will leave you during pregnancy, if he decides to stay another 20 percent will be unhappy, cheat and leave. There is only a handful that will stay with you and actually be happy. So do everyone a favor, get your education, live life and see the world. If you don’t, you will end up stuck in the house raising a baby not living a life that you want for yourselves!!

    I’m just as confused as you are.
    I’m glad your situation worked out fine & that you didn’t actually PLAN on getting pregnant.
    I don’t see why anyone who can’t even support themselves would put a child into this world. Now they would have 2 things they can’t support.

    teen girls are naive and we have hormones in us telling our bodies to become mothers. its natural for teen girls to go through this. i really dont think we should have all these people whining about it when we have no control over it!! it doesnt make us bad people!! when teen girls start actually TRYING is when someone needs to step in.

    -Some chicks think a crumbling relationship will reconnect if they get pregnant; that they’re boyfriend will stay with them
    *But they fail to ask themselves would they truly want to be in the guy’s position?

    -They think that having a baby will bring happiness into their lives (A Bundle of Joy)
    *Sure, babies will bring lots of happiness into your life, but they don’t realize it also brings lots responsibility, anger, frustration, ect., ect.

    -Some teens wanna rebel against their parents
    *BUT, they don’t realize how big of a responsibility there is to getting pregnant and having a baby

    I guess it’s how the media portrays pregnancy, labour, birth, and raising a child. I mean look at the show "16 and pregnant." I’m sorry, I don’t care how many thumbs down I get, that show is stupid and doesn’t portray teenage pregnancy that well in my opinion. Now I don’t know if this is true, but I think that if a teenage girl wants to have a child now, they probably think it will be all fun and games, when they don’t realize that when baby is hungry at 2 AM, baby wants to be fed NOW. I don’t want to judge teenage girls who get pregnant, but I don’t understand teen girls getting pregnant on purpose. It’s a bad idea.

    they probably think how babies are so cute and then they go having sex and getting knocked up and their boyfriend ends up getting all freaked out and leaves her and then shes screwed and has to take care of her baby all by herself and she never realized how hard it is to take care of a child.

    Because they are teens and don’t really think things out fully before they act.

    A baby should never be born with any kind of job. A baby should not be born to keep the parents together or rescue a relationship. A baby never makes things easier. A baby is wonderful but, also a lot of hard work and it is stressful.
