I think you need to give this dilemma some time. You still have a little more time left.
If you keep the baby, then it'll be you and your baby in the end. You're probably not going to be living with your mom forever. Also, it's not the baby's fault that you had sex with three different men. If anything the resentment should be towards the guys if they don't step up.
But DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF!!! You're young! We're all bound to make mistakes when we're young and even when we're supposedly mature. It's in the past. As a young woman and a mommy you need to look to the future.
WHAT YOU DO DOES NOT DEFINE WHO YOU ARE!!!! Got it?
Don't let your mother get you down. Mom's say things b/c they think they're helping you grow up (even though they may be hurting your feelings). Let this be a lesson, so that you don't do it with your own child.
Either decision that you take you may regret, so think this out very carefully. It is you that has to decide whether your ready to venture into the real world as the sole protector of your child. This means protecting them physically and emotionally from things that may be said to him.
If you don't think you're emotially stable enough but you want to keep your baby I suggest you see a therapist, they can help you work through your problems.
And just because you're mom is letting you live with her doesn't mean you should put up with comments from her. She needs to give you the respect and dignity that you and your child deserve.
This is a quote from My Big Fat Greek Wedding:
"Don't let the past define who you are, but let it be part of who you will become."
things may be hard for awhile but things always get better! if u wanna raise this child(by the sounds of it your more then ready and sound like u would be a excellent mother) dont let what your mom or anyone else tell u what to do..dont let someone pressure u into doing something u dont really wanna do because in the end youll regret it..i no i cant completely understand how u feel (about the 3 different guys and not sure) but once u find out dont let it bother u and ruin a great bond between you and your baby ...i personally disagree with your mother if you decided that u are keeping the baby she should accept the fact and be there for u not try and talk u into doing something u dont wanna..u seem like a very strong women and ull make a great mom! keep your head up..
