Hi everyone! I've been stalking around here for the past couple of days and I finally worked up the courage to start posting here.

I actually only just found out I'm pregnant last week. Yeah, I know, it's late in the game but I've always had irregular cycles and to be honest I was a little in denial. I had a sono yesterday to work out my EDD and turns out that I'm due August 8th.

I'm 17 years old and I graduated HS last year. I was accepted into University, however, I am now planning on deferring this year and beginning my course next year. I will be a single Mother and after much consideration I have decided that I am going to keep my child. The last few days have been crazy, I've been trying to work out my financial situation and what not. Thankfully, I finally found out today that as long as I continue with a part time or full time job I will recieve fortnightly payments of $433.90 of youth allowance. Previously, I wasn't allowed to recieve this benefit as my parents earnt too much and had assests that were over a certain amount, and I was also considered "dependent" on them. However, under my circumstances now I am considered independent, so I'm beyond relieved. My parents have been really supportive and haven't said one negative comment to me. They took it brilliantly and they are so excited at the prospect of getting another grandchild. My older sister has a 10 month old son, and she is 39 weeks pregnant with her second boy.

Oh, and I'm Redelle. But please, call me Red.

I'm really looking forward to posting her and getting to know you all!

Hi there! My name is Katie and I too found out I was pregnant recently. I'm 22 and about to graduate from college, but still hoping to pursue my education while being a mother. Quite honestly, I am terrified of what is to come but seeing courage from other women such as yourself is really helping me to calm down a bit. My boyfriend is terrified and wants an abortion, but I just know I couldn't do it. He actually just said today that he wasn't sure how our relationship could continue with all the tension (I think because he figures I would end up getting an abortion). Sooo I might also be a single mother soon as well.

Hope to hear more about you and your little one =]

I am new as well but wanted to say congrats on your pregnancy. I was 16 when I had my first, so it will be hard but totally doable with supportive parents like yours. Mine were too as my oldest was a product of rape, but they, like yours, took it as a blessing! Goodluck!
