I am 18, I have been with my boyfriend on and off for two years now. He has a baby from a previous relationship, and lately I have been having these feelings of emptiness. I live on my own and can support myself, I am attending school, and I love my boyfriend more than anything in the world. We have been through everything together. I want a child so bad it hurts sometimes, but I don't know if it is because he has the happiness already or if its because he has that happiness with someone else. But my heart aches for a child, I constantly think about it, and I'm not sure what I should do. I realize a baby is hard work and it isn't all bubbles and laughs, but I want the 3AM wake up calls, the poopy diapers, and the spit up. I want it all; the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Am I too young for something like this?
