First of all, you clearly desire to mother this little baby and therefore, no one, no even in a well-meaning way, should be trying to pressure or convince you to abort it. You should absolutely not feel guilty at all for wanting to protect, nuture, and love your tiny son or daughter. Let yourself be excited!
Next, don't stress. Many, many ladies have gone through what you're going through right now and still finished college. In fact, sometimes they find that a child provides even more purpose and dedication to finishing. On a practical note there are lots of financial aid programs available to you, and colleges frequently have low cost on campus childcare centers for the times when your and your boyfriend's schedule don't make it possible for one of you to keep the baby with you.
Overall, congratulations on this small new life! I encourage you to join a due date forum here on just mommies. It can be really fun, encouraging, and helpful to be able to communicate with other ladies due the same month and most likely you'll find others on your board in a similar situation to you. Keep us posted!!
Brooke, happy mama to one girl (9), and four boys (7, 5, 3, and 2) and a surprise post-vasectomy miracle baby born February 7.
