life advice (post new situation)
"Baby? "
I'm 19, almost 20, a full time student working toward being a dental hygienist, working part-time. I live at home with my boyfriend of 1.5 years. (My dad pretty much lives with his girlfriend, so we have the house to ourselves. In April I found out I was pregnant, and although it was unexpected, I wasn't afraid or unhappy, I was thrilled. I've always wanted to be a mom, having a family, and loving and taking care of my children would be a dream come true for me. About a month ago I found out I miscarried. I was, of course, very upset, and I greived, and am greiving, but I have accepted it. Now I want nothing more than to still have a baby.

My boyfriend makes decent money, and is looking for a better job so we can get our own house. I think we can handle having a baby. I would be happy no matter how hard it is at first.

Another aspect to consider, is that I strongly believe that 'something' will happen in 2012. It might be nothing, it might be devastating, and if so I don't want to have never experienced being a mother.

All advice and opinions are really appreciated.
