get her the what to expect when you're expecting book. have her doctor sit down and explain to her what she needs to do and what baby needs while its in her womb. kick that loser baby daddy out. from my experience- being prego at 15 and my kids' dad being the same way- i wish my mom would've made me stop seeing him LONG before I decided he wasnt worth it. and if he's anything like my loser ex, this is only a preview of whats to come after the baby is born.

well im trying to support her as much as possible. but its difficult when i see that he isnt doing anything. now he says he is going to go to school so wants to get financial aid.. but wants the aid to buy a car? it doesnt make sense to me sounds like he just trying to find a quik way to get money or something there are trade schools all around where we live he sd wants to get a trade ... wtf... im not buying it everyday i leave to work he is nice and comfy asleep in bed... my hubby is on the road alot and he is all for supporting them and helping, but i know he is gonna start getting frustrated too.
