  • Its not uncommon for people to wait until they are past the 1st trimester before telling people. The ones who truly care about you wont be mad at you- they will be happy for you! Congrats!! :)

  • Why are you scared to tell people? It's not unusual for women to wait until the second trimester.

  • Try not to be scared, your friends and family wont be mad at you! They may be shocked that you've not told them sooner, but they'll be so excited I bet :) Good Luck and CONGRATULATIONS!

  • well i live in a group home and I have no car or licence. I'll have to move from this place i'm sure. My mom doesn't want me to have kids but I've always wanted them and i have a caseworker who scares me but i hope that my family will understand and help me through this. I'm worried all the time and anxiuos.

  • Sonic78: While your situation may not be ideal, you can manage to get thru this. It would be nice to have the support of your family & friends tho. As to your caseworker, if he/she scares you, can you request a different one? I have a feeling you will feel better once you tell everyone & get it out in the open. You can decide from there what your next step is. Being anxious all the time will not help you or your baby. Try to do some deep breathing or other forms of relaxation. Hang in there! And you always have us here! :)
