You need to start planning. How will you complete your education? How will you pay for diapers, clothes, crib, etc. (freecycle, garage sales and second hand shops are great places to start). How will you support your baby and yourself?
Find out how to file for child support; this man may not want to be involved in his child’s life, but he is financially responsible.
Whether or not you are considering abortion, www.plannedparenthood.org has wonderful counselors; they can also provide you with resources for adoption or to help you plan a life as a single parent.
Good luck! You have some difficult decisions to make
