Teen daughter just told me she's pregnant...

Posted by   + Show Post

Way to start off with a first post, right?  This morning over breakfast, my 19 year old daughter told me she had a positive on two pregnancy tests.  She is only a few weeks pregnant.  She is in college, has been dating the guy about two months, and doesn't want me to tell anyone yet because she might end up miscarrying anyway.  I am freaked out.  I need to talk to somebody, but don't want to talk to anybody until I tell my husband.  She is going to the doctor tomorrow with the boyfriend.  She says she has it all figured out, and that it is her choice (which is rich, seeing as how her dad and I are paying for everything, and the boyfriend doesn't have a summer job figured out yet). She does not want an abortion.  I just want to cry and I can't even do that because I work with my husband.  Hyperventilating right about now.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum or whatever else I may have done wrong by posting here -- Just need to get it out!!!

I just got back from the hospital, he is absolutely beautiful!

Quoting MB13:

My 19 year old just had a baby! I am literally waiting to go see them in the hospital!  We found out when she was about 10 weeks pregnant and my initial reaction was not great either!  We have had a long 7 months trying to get her prepared for motherhood.  After several months of discussion they decided to get married.  She has grown a lot in the process and I'm sure that is just beginning!  But anyway, today I am a grandma!!!

Hugs and good luck. She is 19 and although a baby changes alot, I hope she will finish college, even if she has to take a little time off after the baby.

If I got that news from my dd I think I would have a million emotions at once. I would always support her but not raise the baby.

 At least she's chosing life.  Babies are never a mistake, regardless of how they get here.

Prayers.

She is 19....I no! she nosbetter my daughter got pregnant at 19 and she she did just fine and at 26 she has given me 4 grandchildren that I just love like mine own. If she can take care of a baby why are you so upset she is old enough and this baby will make the whole world magical. I think you should support her decision and except your new grandchild.

Grandchildren are wonderful and you are so right babies are not a mistake they are a gift.

I told my mom I am having a baby (I'm 19) and she started crying and hugging me. I'm in college too, and she's very conservative, but she says everything happens for a reason and I'm old enough to make my life decisions. I'm going to struggle, but I'm very independent and know if I have any questions I can go to my mom for everything. SO I think you should just be supportive and be happy that you're going to have a grand baby!!! :D Congrats!
