Pregnant teen, need help

Ok, so it isn't as bad as I made it sound, I'm 19, and the only help I need is figuring this pregnancy thing out, but it's a catchy title :) Hi chicas! I'm Ryan (yup, I'm female, no, my parents don't hate me, yes, I was supposed to be a boy). Those are the answers to the FAQ's about my name. I am pregnant, btw. I'm 6 weeks, due August 27th, 2013. I'll be 20 in August as well, so maybe I'll get a wonderful birthday present! This pregnancy wasn't planned (duh, I'm 19!). I was on the pill, but school was so crazy this semester, it's possible, and probable, since it worked perfectly for over a year, that I took a pill out of the pack, set it down, got distracted, and, well, you can figure out the rest! But however it happened, here I am, 19 and pregnant. Not as bad as 16 and pregnant, but not great. I'm not thrilled about being a mommy, but it isn't the end of the world. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years, today is actually the anniversary of our 1st date. We've lived together since I turned 18, so a year and a few months. We can afford a baby, but still, timing isn't great. But, here we are!

Thanks! Everything is already quite a bit different! I can't imagine how much more it will all change once the baby gets here!

Congrats! I was 20 when I found out I was pregnant wih my first. Timing really wasn't that great for us either and I don't think timing is ever perfect for a baby. Welcome to the group.

Aw, I'm so sorry, that sucks. My parents don't know yet. I don't expect them to take it well, but my boyfriend and I don't need their help, so if they take issue, that is their business. Thank you, I hope the same for you! And Australia, how awesome!

Thank you very much :) And you're right, timing is almost never perfect for a baby, but it can be better, or at least planned!

Yes I agree there! Timing could definitely be better or even planed. Neither of my 2 were planed but hey birth control isn't 100% and it happens. The first pregnancy I was going through a divorce so timing could have been way better for that one! This one we just didn't want 2 so close in age but oh we'll it happens.
