Um I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get pregnant at ages 3 or 4 due to the fact that they have not started ovulating yet. Due to an increase in hormones in food people eat, women/girls have generally started their periods at a younger age than 25 years ago but it's pretty unheard of for anyone under the age of 8 or 9.

Someone had just said that it is possible to get pregnant at a young age like that... I don't know whether it's true or not.

i dont understand what the big deal is... girls used to get married off at fourteen and have three to four children by the time they were twenty....

Perhaps, its the freedom, that we as women can now choose what we do and when we do it, obviously she's chosen to have her baby and is more than happy to announce it, i believe she's an example for young mothers out there that being a young mum isn't a bad thing.

Her children could benefit more from the young age she's had them, imagine when her daughter/son is 10, she'll only be 26 and when they are 20, she'll be 36.

It's a nice close age gap which eradicates the generation gap many teens and children complain about when they have parents in their 50s + claiming that "rock music" is non-sense and short skirts are "inviting".

Come on people.

Congrats to her!

Teenagers have problems, of course, but when we're adults we don't have a safety net to catch our fall. Sure there are teenagers who lack that too and their life sucks but when they grow up there will be a whole load of new issues to deal with. And from personal experience I can tell you that depression hurt a lot more when I was younger but it almost destroyed me as a young adult - it's bad either way.

Life is tough anyway we look at it. It gets tougher with age, but we are all grabbing the bull by the horn from day one. It's unfair to say that some problems are worse than others - but it's safe to say that more problems will show up as we grow up. Just don't lose hope on yourself - life gets harder but in many ways it also gets better. There is light at the end of tunnel, trust me.
Agreed

we don't live in the kind of society that young girls getting pregnant is acceptable, times have changed, girls are classed as 'children' at the age of thirteen and forteen, so i dont understand why your statement was relevant to this case!!! also, although i wish her every luck, i dont think shes quite the 'example for young mothers' that you say she is, i mean she has a job, money and a supportive boyfriend, i think i can safely say that the majority of young mothers dont have this kind of lifestyle so good for her that she decided to have the baby, but she's hardly an example

It is a bit odd... I mean at my school, when a tenth grader (15/16) dates a seventh grader (12/13), they're considered a "pedo."

They say the youngest girl to ever give birth was 5 year 7 months old. She started having her periods when she was 3. Can you imagine?

I was reading about that, really scary, I suppose that sort of genetic mutation does happen sometimes to allow such a thing...the baby would have been half the size of her! XO

Thank you for that. I was just about to rush out and retreive the article from google.

Funny that people thought I was making it up. It's a sick world, people.

Well just because one girl did doesn't make it common (I know you weren't saying this but just reiterating) Either way, I have no desire to know why she got pregnant at such a young age. Blech.

edit: Just read the article. The whole thing is really interesting actually....

Terribly ethnocentric and misinformed remark. Ethnocentric because there are many too many societies with diverging set of values and taboo to say thing as 'we don't whatever'. And misinformed because, in the UK, the legal age to get married without mummy and daddy's permission (and by implication to have sex and babies) is 16. So not only it is acceptable , but it's legal in your own country.

Classed is the exact world. These categories are just that and do not reflect individual experience and outlooks. I think the remark was perfectly relevant because it shows that teenagewood, and indeed childhood are modern concepts. Hundred of millions of 16 years old (and much younger) women have done a great job being mothers through the centuries, and most of the time in unbelievably precarious conditions. Many 16 y.o. people are irresponsible because they were brought that way. I nor you know nothing about her values, upbringing, and maturity level.

i wish her every luck
I agree with you here and I'll add that although I am pro-choice, I certainly admire her for not aborting. I am 21 and would be terrified to be a mom. She does have some serious guts.

^I would like to amend my post. At 16, in the UK, you need the go ahead of one of your parent to get married. Sorry for the confusion.
