Hi my name is Jean. I found out I was pregnant. I am currently 18 weeks. I am terrified out of my mind. I knew i was pregnant since i was 8 weeks. I put it off thinking that the test is crazy. I had to go to a emergency room because i passed out, and they told me i am pregnant. I didn’t believe them. For so long i was told i couldn’t get pregnant and i was terified that i was never going to be a mom. I ended up sleeping with a close friend of mine and as stupid as it sounds i made a stupid decision and it was a 1 night stand. Thus I got pregnant. So here I am at 18 weeks. I just got fired from my job, due to job abandament because i have been getting sent home for me being sick to much. I called out a couple times because i couldn’t move outta bed, and i then had to take a medical week off because of 4 blood clots in my lung. I know complicated right? I told the father he is having a baby with me. At first he was ok this sucks but allright have abortion. Personally i don’t do it. My personal beliefs. He kept preasuring me and when i wouldn’t get it done he basically cut me off. I haven’t spoke to him in a couple weeks. I am scared and alone. I don’t know if i can raise and baby anymore. I don’t want to do adoption, but im terrified. I have no income now and its like what am i going to do how am i going to live? I have to move outta my house soon because of pregnancy and no money. I don’t know where to go. I am basically freaking out. Everyone is telling me you need to do adoption, or abortion. You can’t raise a baby. They say Single mom’s don’t make it. I wanna scream the top of my lungs saying leave me alone.September 29, 2011 at 11:26 am #28357Meg11

Hi jean 🙂
My name is Stephanie, I want to stop in and say YOU CAN DO IT! I know your scared, feel like you can’t do it, and afraid.. because I have been there! Have you gone and talked to someone in the foodstamps,wic, welfare, any of them can point you in the right direction to help you get support for you and your baby. You made the right choice hun. I know it didn’t seem like it right now but the day you are holding your little one in your arms you will feel a love no one can explain to you! Everything u do from now untill then may seem hard, impossible, and overwhelming but when that day comes you will be SO proud of yourself and you will look at your baby and be so greatfull that you did everything you could and desided to keep him/her. Do you have support from your family? I know the state will help you. With My first I had to get on foodstamps, welfare, and wic, you can also get housing assistance. yes I felt horrible for using state aid but I am so glad I did. My son is now 4 and I don’t regret Nything I did. Keep your head up and keep looking. Talk to everyone you know, and even people you don’t know you CAN do this! if you need anything just like meg said you can email me anytime!
