Quoting MommaChelle:" I'm 18 and found out last week that I was 17 wks pregnant. I'm scared to death. I can't help but think ... [snip!] ... so scared that I'll loose the baby. Does anyone out there have some advice or comforting words for me to help me through? "
I believe you can do it. Honestly don't listen to your father if he is pushing you toward abortion......You are an young adult and have your whole life ahead of you. My mom was a high school drop out, she met my father, and got married when she was pregnant with my little sister. She got a divorce, and left my father, she finished her GED, when she was in her late 20's . It is something she wanted to do. She did it. Was it easy for her No. But you can do it. There are grants out there for those who qualify for child care, and other things. I believe in every woman who wants to further there education, education is power...... Keep your head up, and love your baby and yourself. It will all work out in the end. Plus when your Dad meets his grand baby, he will regret saying to abort this blessing......I hope this helps you. Christene you may parent tank me or private message me if you would like to talk.
