  • Find someone to talk to definately! Depression is a serious matter and it is very hard to deal with just on your own! If you have a counselor at your school or someone that you trust a little older then you that would have very wise advice go to them!

  • Why would this be a troll?
    Definitely talk to someone you trust. There are counselors out there. Go to someone you trust and they will help you. Get help for yourself and your baby. Good luck with everything

  • If you feel you can't talk to anyone in your family you should talk to your doctor or a school counselor...Thats what they are there for.

  • To the young mother to be. It does not matter what someone thinks about you and the life you will bring into this world. Always remember that you have made the choice to have a baby weither it was a slip up or an unexpected suprise. Do not let anyone make you feel like you have done wrong. In some eyes you may have but you know what you will have to face yourself from the moment you had sex. Good Luck and please remember not all people are so judgemental.. Oh before I answered this question I had to hold back to spare your feelings honey. But you will be an adult soon so why come at you with a side of negativity.

  • Talk to your obgyn about the depression. I had it while i was preg, and my dr really helped me with it. she put me on antidepressants that were safe for preg women, and then it really helped cuz i suffer from post partum dep as well. she didnt judge me at all, and said depression is very normal, and very treatable! remember ur baby feels the stress. ino teen pregnancies are hard, but u will get thru this. my 14 yr old SIL jsut had a baby, and she gave him up for adoption, and now shes doing great. ino its hard but enjoy ur pregnancy, no matter what age, making a baby is truly a miracle!
