I'm only 16 and well prego. I didn't find out still i was about 5 months,now I'm 28 weeks with my due date being december 5(my birthday)
I'm not scared nor upset, i seem more happy/excited more like it, just worried about the changes he will bring to my life. I'm getting help from all over, programs,etc. Young ladys/girls sharing their experience. Even then i worry.
Everything is fine with my baby. My family and his are helpful. But being so young,still in school, not quite prepared ,puts a lot on our minds.
We decide on keeping our son. And still go to school
but i can't help but worry, not quite sure why....
Maybe you could seek some sort of counseling to help you work though the uncertainty. See if your school offers anything. My high school had new parent classes that not only offered emotional support but also helped you learn things you'd need as a new parent. Also check your local hospital, health department, planned parenthood, and WIC office.
No advice but alot of my friends were teen mothers I was 19 and was told I was to young to have a baby but I can tell you not a one of my friends or I have ever felt like we did the wrong thing by having our babies. We love them and they love us and you can be young and still take care of a baby and if you have family help that is even better you are way ahead of the game.
Hope you and your family (baby and babys dad) the very best. You can do it. You really can no matter what anyone might tell you.
I appreciate it, your words help my worrying mind.
I have signed up for a program in my school, really quite helpful. Many young girls are going though with the same,others are telling us what they experienced. Great to know I'm not alone.
I know(from whats been said to me)its a lovely experience to be a mother, but its alright to worry alittle. That its normal for some women.
