  • i was 17 and homeless when i found out i was pregnant with my first child. just remember, it's not the end of the world, it's the beginning! it's a wonderful, beautiful beginning! congratulations to you! the 1st thing you need to do is find a doctor you trust. you have time, so relax. you will figure out how to cope in time. pm me if you need to vent. i understand what you're going through.

  • I'm so sorry your family got kicked out of their house at this difficult time for you. There are groups here on cafemom for teen moms. I'm sure there are others there that you can talk to who will empathize with you. Have you thought about talking to your school counselor or another adult you really feel you can trust.

    Even though you've requested that people aren't mean to you, I'm afraid some women will. They can be very judgmental around here. Good luck to you and your baby.

  • of course the first thing that is best for both you and your little one is to try your best to keep calm. this is life and things happen this way. now it is up to you to make the right choices which can be and will be some of the toughest you will ever face, but it is possible. first..let me remind you just how important having an education is...this could be your one key to success, don't give it up. regardless of you age and what people say or think...opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one.there are many options and help out there, take advantage of it if you think you need it. If you need someone to chat w/...I'm here...

  • Take one step at a time. Talk to your parents about govt housing to have a home. Your baby's dad is probably trying to adjust to what's going on so don't take his behavior personally. You are probably crying bc you are pregnant! Remain calm and breathe. It will be fine.

  • Give yourself permission to cry.

    Even if you didn't have all those crazy stressful things in your life, pregnancy hormones can make you very emotional...and it's really okay to let it out.

  • I was 17 when I got pregnant with my first as well. I wasn't in the same situation as you, but I do know how stressful and scary being a young mom can be! Just weigh all your options and talk to someone! A counselor, a teacher, a doctor, or even just a friend. It's okay to cry every day, I'm expecting baby # 2 and I cry every day for no apparent reason, those are the hormones. Take a deep breath, and enjoy the miracle that is happening inside you right now. That is the one thing I truly regret about my first pregnancy. Being so young and not realizing what a blessing it is to be able to have children, and not fully understanding what a miracle it really is to be pregnant and be able to form a human life. Your boyfriend is probably just trying to adjust to the idea, but if you know him well enough, you'll know how to deal with him. Either talk to him, or leave him alone...he'll come around. Good luck!
