You have it in you. God will never put anything on you that He knows you can't bear. You are responsible for the great life in you, consider that. Talk to someone you trust. It may not be what you want but you will find strength in knowing you are doing the right thing. You can do it.
It is a scary time to get pregnant... I will admit that, but just imagine how forgiving a child is! You don't have to be perfect, they will come out with the ability to love you beyond measure!
Also, you look at the cost of raising a child, and it will overwhelm you but truly you don't need half of the stuff you see at the store, what you need is diapers, boobs, and blankets... even clothes really are not madatory for infants.. provided you keep them warm in blankets and such... but honestly if you can't afford clothes don't worry too much especially if your baby is a girl, clothes come from EVERYWHERE.. and there are always used items you can get, like garage sale stuff, or friends who don't need their whats it anymore...
You are going to do great! and you'll be shocked at how easily you will fall into the role of motherhood. Even though admittedly there are learning curves, you get through them and you move on, and no matter how much you think you are messing up, as long as you feed, change and love your child you are doing about as good as any of the rest of us!
