  • I guess we need to work on making some changes. It's okay to go slow at take small steps. (Looking at everything that stresses you all at once is overwhelming!!)
    What's going on with your (sometimes boyfriend)?
    How is your family not supportive?

  • Remember that your hormones are running crazy right now! Once your baby gets here you will be overjoyed, at least in my opinion. Crap happens sweets! People lose their jobs, get down in life, but things will get better. I bet once one of you finds a job, you'll feel better. Good luck!

  • I hated my life and my pregnancy. It was unplanned and at a difficult time in my life. I had the baby because I didn't believe in abortion and didn't give it up for adoption because we had done told our families and they would have been mad (stupid I know) but anyways, I've learned to adjust. I don't have to love my life but I can look at the positives at least. I have two beautiful kids. I have two very smart kids. I love my kids very much. I may not be perfect, but my kids love me for me.

  • I can in some sense understand where you are coming from, there are plenty of programs out there through the job and family services and the welfare department to help you out, you just have to look for them, as for your family that's something you are going to have to get away from you don't want there negativity to get you down, i'm sure the welfare dept can help with that with some kind of housing and to possibly find your boyfriend a job. Being pregnant is a stressful thing, and after you have the baby the stress gets worse. I'm not a very religious person however i can remember my grandmother telling me that god only gives you what you can handle, and obviously he thinks you can handle having the child and dealing with the stress of the child as well as what is going on in your life rite now. You'll always have rainy days, but the clouds will let up soon and things will fall into place for you, good luck!

  • I agree that you need to make some changes. I know it is easier said than done but start small.

  • Sometimes, women in your position realize that they are not emotionally or financially equipped to give a baby the best life possible.

    Adoption is truly the ultimate act of love!

  • You're young. I had my first child when I was 20 and I was a mess. We had no money, didn't even have a reliable place to live, had no furniture, unsupportive families. We couldn't even get on assistance because I had 10K in the bank and a car worth about 3k (which was spent on medical bills shortly after baby was born)so we had this baby with no insurance. Everything was so hard back then.
    The good news is that its been 8 years and life is good. We crack jokes all the time about how broke we were and how we had one bed in our living room for our couch and one bed in the bedroom to sleep on. My son is 8 now and so much fun!!
    Change the way you thing and TRUST ME everything will get better....You just have to pay your dues now. I wish you the best.
