Quoting Brooke Alene Powell:" I am 19 years old, turning 20 in December and i am 17 weeks pregnant. I had thought that having a baby ... [snip!] ... we will have a $500 house payment and a $250 electric bill (that includes water) plus the baby's needs... im freaking out!!!"
Hey, your post sort of hit home so I just wanted to tell you, you're not alone! I also got pregnant only about a month after dating my fiance; I had just turned 21 and he was 19. I was terrified and excited and every emotion in between. Like you, I worried that our relationship would never last because we never really even got a chance to "date" before finding out I was pregnant. I remember during the beginning of the pregnancy going through a really weird phase where my emotions were a roller coaster mess and I used to wish that he would leave me and think that girls whose baby's fathers left them were "lucky"
Needless to say, I quickly grew out of that negative thinking towards him and we are still together- our son is now 16 months.
As for the bills and baby costs- yes it is a lot for two young people, but you can do it. Luckily we had a lot of help from family and friends, but there are resources out there (like WIC, food stamps, etc. that you already named) that are there to provide help for those in need! I believe if you put in the work, it will all work out
Keep your head up, relax, and enjoy your pregnancy. It's definitely A LOT of work but it is all well worth it in the end. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to pm me! Good luck!
