  • Wow, not too surprised though, babies having babies. She needs to get to a gyno and they will direct through this whole ordeal.

  • If you can afford it (and you think she'll read it), get her a book called "Your Pregnancy Week By Week". It will fill her in on whats happening, and it covers some of the nutrition stuff, too.
    Has she told her parents? Is she getting seen by a doctor/midwife?

  • the BEST thing you could do for her is find a pregnancy center in you area that will put her in contact with teen mothers who kept the baby AND put the baby up for adoption. that way she can really consider her options. good centers like that are hard to find in most areas though, so maybe do some research on your own and print out some info for her. even tell her to get an account on here so she can talk to moms with all kinds of different experiences. she also needs to tell her parents and get prenatal care asap if she hasnt already. i was pregnant at 15, so you or her can message me more info and/or specific questions if you'd like. not only have i been there, but i have a degree in social work as well so i have training in dealing with stuff like this.
