Teen pregnancy can be a problem. There are health risks for the baby and children born to teenage mothers are more likely to suffer health, social, and emotional problems than children born to older mothers. Also, women who become pregnant during their teens are at increased risk for medical complications.
This is a fairly old thread but I echo PP in saying this is supposed to be a support forum and I don't think the original poster needs a lecture on teen pregnancy being a problem. Also, pregnancies in women over 35 are deemed as more 'high risk' with increased likelihood for medical complications than teen pregnancies, so that point is invalid.
Your story moved me.... you sound so responsible and grown up for your age and I think the way you've handled speaking to your parents as well as dealing with your boyfriend and his mum has been amazing. I'm so glad everyone seems to have come round now though and things sound like they're getting better.
I hope you come on to update. Please message if you need any advice or just someone friendly. You're going to be a great mummy.
It's going to be tough but that's OK and normal. If you need any advice, feel free and PM me. I am a mom of two, a 10 year old, and expecting a little bundle of joy! I was scared when I was pregnant at 16 but I got through it because of family and friends support and a lot of help.
