i'm about a week late and went to the drug store and bought a test. came back that i was pregnant. i've been trying to get ahold of my doctor to schedule an appointment to know for sure but his computer system has been down and appointments can't be scheduled until the system is back up.

i have no idea what to do. i'm 22 years old and i've been with my boyfriend for 2 yrs. know, and he doesn't know about this yet. i work part time in a retail job and he works in a crappy job so i know it's going to be hard for us to support a baby.

this is the first time i've mentioned any of this to anyone. i'm just in need of some advice. my email is: [email protected] or you can post here. thanks so much in advance.

hello and welcome to justmommies. i know you are probably scared to death now but you'll get by... talk to your bf and try to come up with some sort of plan. do you have family who will be supportive? if so that will help. in the mean time take care of yourself and hang in there!

Hi There-

First off, congratulations! I am 23 and my fiance and i have been together almost a year now (so you two have us beat length wise). This is going to be our first child and, of course, she was completely unplanned.

I just wanted to let you know that you can do it. Most of us young families are going to struggle in the beginning... just know that it will all work out. Believe me, I know you are probably going through all kinds of emotions but everything happens for a reason. Good luck with telling your boyfriend. If you've been together for 2 years I would think you have a strong relationship. As long as you stick together anything is possible.

Thank you Kara for my siggy!

Since you're working retail part-time I'm gonna guess you don't have insurance. You should look into getting on medicaid - they'll pay for all the doctor bills, which can get VERY pricey, so it's definitely something you should look into early.

Well congrats and I would say that the first step is to make sure you are covered on insurance and make an appointment. Go to the doctors yourself and make one if the automated system isn't up within a few days. And tell your boyfriend before hand. He may want to go to your appointments with you. Good luck and congrats.
I am 19 by the way, expecting my son in a week. He was also unplanned and I was on birth control when I conceived him.

I agree with applying for Medicaid.....it's a must for those with no insurance.

You should also apply for WIC...that is a great program that offers free, nutritional food to pregnant mothers and children to age 5. The worst they can say is no.

I love my 3 girls and little boy:

Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months
