I am 17 and 8 weeks pregnant today. (I will be 18 at the time of birth)
I found out 4 weeks ago,
For three weeks straight I was determined that abortion was what needed to be done. That I could never be a mother, let alone a teenage mother.
I only spoke to my mother for the first time about it last night.
She was shocked and scared, but by no means angry.
I am unsure of which path to follow.
The father is in the picture, but his family disowned him last night after a very heated argument.
My mother is telling me that it is completely my choice, but only giving me the negatives to if I was to keep it.
-People wont want to hire me as I’m a teenage mother
-Less opportunities in life
I know I would have a lot of support.
But I have always suffered from depressions as I’ve had a very volatile past.
Which also makes me believe I would be useless as a mother.
I am so lost.July 5, 2010 at 8:42 am #27344Criidle

Don’t have an abortion, it will be the biggest mistake in your life. I believe a baby should have the right to live. Take care sweetie, pregnancy is a beautiful thing.August 27, 2010 at 5:40 am #27487Anonymous

I am in kind of the same situation. I may possibly be pregnant and i’m only 16. My boyfriend is threatning to leave me if i dont abort it but i can’t bring myself to it. Really, i think you should keep it it would most likely be a hard but good experience for urself and aborting it would be a very sad thing to do. Just do what your heart tells you and dont forget that you can do anything you set your mind to. Stay strong! if you need anyone to talk to you can talk to me if you would like. Good luck!September 1, 2010 at 2:37 am #27491queenB
I read your post and I just wanted to tell you, I like the advice you gave and I think that you should keep your baby as well.
I am really sorry to hear that your boyfriend is threatening to leave if you do not choose abortion. I think that he is putting in a really bad choice. The truth of the matter is, this is YOUR choice. Don’t let someone pressure you to do what they want. Be a Stand Up Girl and stand up for what you want.
