I am almost 10 weeks pregnant and SO scared. It was totally unexpected and it happened right after I got out of a 4 year rel’ship with my ex (but the baby is the rebound guys – not my ex’s). And long story short the Dad will not be in the picture – only financially, but I am basically a single mom. Its just really hard because all of a sudden I am thinking of my ex and wishing things were back to the way they were, but i really do want this baby, but other parts of me are scared because I have one year of university left and I am going to lose my social life. Are these all normal fears? I also have told my mom and she is totally unsupportive , I hate that because I am 23 years old and shes treating me like a child. I also have not told my Dad yet and am SO SCARED too. Any advice about how you all overcome the scared feelings? I appreciate it, xo.

Im so sorry to hear about your mom being so unsupportive, but Im glad that you are keeping the baby:) Maybe try talking to someone you trust, is there a Nurse or counsellor at your Uni you could talk to? Things will be tough but just try and take this one day at a time. Im sure that your mom will come around, maybe she just needs time? And as for your dad, I would sugest just telling him upfront and expressing your concerns.. maybe he will appreciate the honesty? Idk, but I wish the best for both of you. Keep us updated! <3

Everything you are feeling is completely normal.
It’s too bad that your Mom is treating you like a child, that does make things a lot more difficult if you don’t have her support.
You might want to take a little while and just get used to the idea that you are pregnant, or you might just want to tell your Dad right away and get it over with.
I know that it’s really scary right now, but the baby will be totally worth it!
Keep us updated on how you’re doing, ok?January 17, 2009 at 2:07 am #23820sexysimz
