    I am 18 years old and I am pregnant. I am so afraid about the future. I recently made the decision to keep the baby and now I am trying to do the best I can with what I have. I want to know how other people in this situation got through it. I need some advice.

    I am so confident in my decision. I am enjoying this pregnancy. I have my doctor and all is well. And I have all the support I could ever want. My family is dissapointed but they respect my decision.

    Congrats on the pregnancy! I'm 17 right now and have a six month old son. I was only 16 when he was born and my boyfriend was 18. So far we've been doing just fine and have a lot of support. I knew right away when I got pregnant that I would keep the baby no matter what. Now, there's a small chance I could be pregnant again. Bad timing but I'm getting excited just the same. That just goes to show you that no matter what the situation or how old you are, a pregnancy is great. So is being a mom.

    Aww hunny I know what its like. My parents are the same way right now. I turn 18 in less then a month. Hubby and I finally got our apartment today. I am enjoying my pregnancy immensely also but trust me I was SOOOO scared at first. I still am every day. I also thought about abortion cause at first it was what hubby really wanted cause he was afraid we couldnt do it now. I am 13 weeks 5 days today so two weeks behind you. Nice to know you got your doctor have you had a scan yet to check everything out.

    Keep enjoying being pregnant hunny.

    Have a good 9 months with bubs.

    I have been in your shoes and I know what you are feeling!! I was 16 when I got pregnant, I had my son 3 months before my 17th birthday. I am now 22 my son is almost 6 and I wouldn't change it for the anything, it was really tough but I hot through it the most important thing is that you have people around you to support you and be there for you! And it sounds like you have that. I want to wish you luck and I am sure you will make a great Mom. :) P.S. The first time you get to see your baby all your worries will dissapear, your heart will melt :) If you ever have questions msg me I will be happy to talk, I'm currently pregnant as well I am 33 weeks so I am almost there. Anyways good luck!!

    I am not a teen so dont know what it feels like to be preg at that age but alot of my school friends where and 18 is not to young. Most where about 14 up when they got preg i knew and they all managed well. Its a big step and I am glad to see you have made the decision and come online for help which shows you are concerned and not taking it lightly. I hope that dosnt sound patroising in any way. I have a feeling you have a good head on your shoulders and you will do ok.

    I jus had a baby. I got pregnant when I was 18. It is hard and there'll be times where you doubt whether you have made the right decision but you will get over that and in the end you'll have a beautiful baby in your arms and wonder how you could ever have thought about not keeping it. Congrats and good luck :)

    You are certainly not alone! I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant and I am 18 now expecting my baby in less than 6 weeks. I had a hard time dealing with everything at first as well but it will all get better I promise. Plus I hear after you have your baby it is all worth it and I can't wait. I'm very proud of you for deciding to keep your baby because it is not an easy decision. My mom was very ashamed of me at first but she has come to terms with it and is so excited to be a grandma. Just give them some time and soon they will come around. If you ever want to talk you can always pm me because I know exactly what your going through! I wish you the best of luck!

    hello hun,
    like the other girls said, your not alone, i'm 18 and just found out i was pregnant, even though i'm almost as far along as you. I will still be 18 when our child is born. It's great that you have support! i have my husband and dont know what i would do with out the support he gives, so you are very lucky to have the support of your family to help get you thru it. I hope you have a healthy 9 months and if you need anything, you can PM me anytime=)
