  • Your story was cut off because it was too long I think. You can write it all out in a Journal on your page. You're almost 18 darlin just be glad you weren't 14 when it happened to you! You have supportive parents who are going to help you through this and I'm sure you're probably almost done with school. Stick it out, try to graduate, and do the best you can for the baby! There's no point in stressing about it, it just makes you sleep like crap. Drink lot's of water (I'm horrible at it too, I was in the er for dehydration in June) And try to eat decently. Good luck! If you need to talk to anyone you can message me anytime.

  • I am so sorry to hear that you are so stressed. I hope you find your footing because the stress will only get worse once the baby arrives. I hope others on here will serve as the support that you need instead bashing you because of your young age. Please feel free to PM me if you need a friend to lean on through this stressful time.I know that the last thing you need right now is others giving you a lecture about waiting. The damage is done now and support and guidance is what you need now.

    I am going to say that maybe you should check into some safer ways of dealing with the stress and depression because the meds can have serious side effects on the baby not to mention that they may not be having the desired effect due to hormone levels. Good luck dear, I'm sure that it will all work out.

  • i was on depression meds when i unexpectedly got preggo at 18 (tho I was married)... i stopped taking thing b/c i didnt want them to hurt the baby... just make sure your OB knows you are on these meds... since you are high risk I am assuming b/c of all your complications, you cant use a midwife unfortunately... however if you CAN at ALL... i suggest a CNM (Certified Nurse Midwife) you deliver in hospital, etc... but you have more freedoms about how you birth. educate yourself about EVERYTHING and try to enjoy this even though it is stressful, too. the little girl will be so precious you will wonder how your heart could hold so much love. stick with school... it is the best thing you can do for your child. at LEAST high school, for now. You are right... God gave you this baby for a purpose, and I am so proud of you for hanging in there and keeping her. PM me if ya need an ear or to swap stories! I'll pray for ya'll!
