The doctor just called me yesterday telling me that the blood test came back positive for pregnancy. I'm 18, about to be 19 in July and he said I'm about 7 weeks (havent gotten my period since the end of January). Any tips or advice on making it through my pregnancy and the first few weeks of life with my new baby? I eventually want to get back to school (im a freshman in college) and finish out nursing school but I'm obviously gonna have to put that on hold!Answer Question

I was out of school a few years, when I started college with a 13 month old & 1 on the way. You can do this! If I can, anyone can! It will help if the baby's father is supportive. And if you have close family & friends who you can rely on. Having a diaper party & baby shower can help get you some of the things you will need & help ease the financial burden. You will need to trust your instincts when it comes to parenting. Babies don't come with a manual. (Wish they did! :p) Read "What to Expect When You're Expecting" or rent the movie. That will help you thru the pregnancy. There are other books out there to help w/ questions about taking care of your baby too. But like I said, your motherly instincts will kick in too & you should listen to those. GL! :)
