Then move? Find a job outside of your typical degree field. A lot of people do not end up working exactly in their field.

Just this statement right here, tells me how much you have to learn about life.


How old are you anyway?


Does your school have those fake babies you can take home to wake you up all night, scream inconsolably etc?


Have you ever had a pet and actually cared for it every day?

I dare say many women that struggled to get pregnant might not agree with you.

Your choices are limited, seeing as how you got a master's degree, but don't think you'll be able to pay your own way for another 15 years.

If you did, you wouldn't be encouraging an emotionally unstable young woman to just go ahead and have a baby.

25 and in high school I remember they stopped that program for whatever reason. I haven't ever had a pet. When I move after graduation I might get a puppy but idk depends on my schedule I'm not a big animal person

Im only encouraging her to do what feels right for her. Havin a family is an amazing gift I think every one deserves that shot, whether you have money or dont.

IMO that's just irresponsible!

Waiting to be married first = find any man who'll be a good sperm donor so to get pregnant = that marriage most likely to fail. I've heard "this song" before within people I've interacted who've been through this.

The WIC and Programs = it would be one thing if the pregnancy was accidental/unplanned but with the OP this advice is just in kind will not serve her well and her own best interests and would make her a prisoner of soughts in not being able to solidifying her future earning life verses potentially doing that while taking care of a child(ren) and working and affording it all.
