    IF its possible! So many women put off haivng kids until close to 40 because they want to be career women and then they find it shocking that at 38 and older they have a tough time becoming pregnant. Yes I had to give up being young and carefree by haivng a baby at 23 but the rewards of being a mom are worth it, plus I didnt have to do fertility treatments because I was so young. Oh I do live in California, yes the cost of living is high but my husband and I both went to college I finished up when I was 8 months pregnant and he has a great job while I am a stay at home mom to a 5 year old boy and 10 month old girl. You can have it all if you really try, being a young mom and being successful.
