  • I would get a test and see what it says. Dont worry I am 19 and pregnant with my second daughter. you will be fine if you are pregnant go to the local wic and medicade office and get some help. They can even help you with housing and getting baby gear for your little one.

  • thats great advice. but another thing im worried about is miscarrying. im only 89-90 pounds cause of my fast metabolism. and the one thing my boyfriends mom told me was that because of my weight my body wont be able to handle having a baby. is this true too?

  • I was 18 and in college when I got pregnant. It isn't the end of the world. If you believe in yourself you can make it and be a wonderful mother. If you absolutely don't think you can do it there are many couples that would love to adopt your baby if you are indeed pregnant. Just relax and stop stressing. You are going to be OK.

  • And by the way...to anonymous. It is YOU'RE (as in "you are in college"), not YOUR (meaning belonging to). If you are going to be rude at least be a little better than the person you are being rude to!
