I'm new here, haven't had my period for a while so I took a test and there it was! Two red lines that told me I was pregnant. I'm single by the way, but I've still been stupidly sleeping with my ex who let's just say isn't the best sort of person for me to be involved with. He knows about it as he was with me when I took it.

I kept it to myself for a while till it got a bit too much for me to deal with and I told my two best friends (one being a guy and one being a member on here who is also pregnant). So I've had a lot to think about lately obviously.

The thing I'm worried about the most, as silly as it seems, is what other people will think. Everyone in my family has been married and owned their own home before they've had children so I'm going to be the black sheep. I'm a little scared of what my Mum and my Nanna will have to say, Mum's a little bit more open minded but her and Nanna are like two peas in a pod and she has confronted me and told me off worse than anyone I know about other things that have happened in my life. And the other thing is the whole being a single mother thing, although I know I'll have so much support (after the initial shock of me being pregnant).

So if anyone's actually read this, it'd just be nice to talk to someone I don't actually know, someone who's un biased in the choices I make in my life. I'd just like to hear some stories, advice, whatever really!
