I am 22-years-old and currently 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I found out I as pregnant when I was 6 weeks along. When I found out, I couldn't fathom the thought of having a child. I just couldn't keep it, I was seriously considering adoption, then again, there is this life growing inside of me; I couldn't wrap my head around the thought of carrying a child and then going home empty-handed (after birth, adoption). I've been reading on the growth of my child from the day I found out, well a couple days afterwards since I was so emotional and crying because I didn't want to believe I was pregnant. And now, I feel happy that I am having a baby. I love looking at baby things (I want to buy everything I see), but the wait to find out the gender is agonizing! Haha. Sometimes I really think about adoption because I am only 22-years-old, I still have a young life ahead of me and I would like to at least have my MSW (Master's in Social Work) and be financially ready/able to support a child. I mean, I am fine right now, but babies cost money! Then again, I think of it as my boyfriend and I spicing things up, I know I won't regret my decision to keep this child. I guess what I'm trying to ask is: Is it normal for me to be happy one moment and sad and unsure about the future in an instant? Moreso, I've been pretty excited of the thought of bringing a new life into this world.

Everything you are feeling is normal! Pregnancy and impending motherhood is a scary thing. I wasn't sure what I wanted when I found out, but as soon as I saw the baby at 8 weeks, I couldn't imagine being without her! I'm 22 as well, was 21 when I found out I was pregnant. I also got engaged to my boyfriend, and we are so excited for our little bundle! We know it will be hard, but we also know that it will be so worth it Good luck!
