I'm 16 and I'm pregnant. Everybody's telling me to do different things. And, I honestly have no clue what to do. Any suggestions?

  • Talk to a counselor, someone you don't know that wont judge you or your decision. You have options whether you want to keep it or not. Good luck to you!!

  • Nobody can tell u what to do. Giving a baby up for adoption is hard but so is raising a baby at your age.

  • No one can tell you what you should do. Its a very personal decision. Do your parents know yet? What about the father? Just talk it over with them and then come to your decision together.

  • Do what your OB tells you if you plan on carrying through with the pregnancy. It doesn't matter what anyone else says. If you're not planning on continuing the pregnancy, I have nothing polite to say. So I'll just leave it at that.

  • Do what is best for the baby. That is the most important right now.

  • First you need to talk to the father, your parents, and his parents. Then you should talk to someone that will give you advise and not be judgmental or pushy. But in the end YOU are the one that makes the final decision, whatever that may be. But know that nothing you choose will be easy. If you keep it, abort it, or give it up for adoption, you will have hard times no matter what, so don't let anyone make you think any way will be easier than another. Good luck to you in whatever you decide.

  • Do what you think is best for you and that baby. If that means giving it up for adoption (or the alternative to that) than that's probably what is best for you. If it means keeping it and raising it yourself (not pawning it off on mom to raise) than that is what will work for you. Best of luck!

  • You do what you feel is right and find yourselve a good counselor to confide in and that can go over your options and better prepare you for things.

  • You should talk this over with your mom as well as a counselor to try and help you sort through your feelings that you're experiencing at this time. If need be try talking this over with he pastor of your church and see what he may suggest.
