Ok, wait. Cool for you and all but you don't have to look up how to take care of your baby? Then why are you here? Everyone has questions, instinct or not.

Once your baby is born your mom will change . When my mom saw my baby been born she regretted saying the word abortion. Continue going to school and get a part time job . That'll help you . Just surround yourself that people that will support you and your dission . Good luck (:

Let me tell a little story... When i was 16 I broke up with my boyfriend because he cheated on me. I then found out 2 weeks later i was pregnant. I told him and he asked me to marry him! I was too scared to do that so i refused but i did say that we would try to work it out. My family hated him and everything he was. I had family and friends talk shit about me being pregnant saying Im never gonna amount to anything. A teacher told me, "Teenage mothers have low self-esteem and will not make it far." When i was about 6 months pregnant I found out the girl my boyfriend had cheated on me with was also pregnant due one month after me with a girl. I left him and he went back to her. I was so upset but I then decided that I wasnt going to give up... went to local social services and asked them to help me with programs for me to get educated on raising a child. I got a job and I continued to go to school. I had my son during the summer of my Junior and Senior year. I went back to school and I never let anybody ruin me... I hated what they said. I hated their opinions.... But most of all i hated their attitudes and judgements. When i graduated i graduated with honors and i went to college. I have a degree in early childhood education and also a degree in cosmotology! Being a young mom is not easy and your right thing happen for a reason and your not to sure why at the time but I realized that if i wouldnt have got pregnant i would probably have ended up an alcohol and a druggy because the college i wanted to go to is a huge party school... Stay strong and your local woman's resource center give awesome training on how to be a parent as well as classes that fit your life style like budgeting for a baby... And how to write a resume! Good Luck I really wish you the best! Stay strong and believe in yourself!

yesterday my mom blew up and now.... all i have is two choices and she threatened me. 1. i go to indiana quietly and leave my fiance and my whole other half of the family here or 2. She can call my probation officer and said that i stole her car which i didn't! and she'll get me locked up and the baby to go to the state so her friend can have it. Just i can't fight her cuz then i get locked up for fake issues and if i don't i'm leaving my love, my life, and my help......

I was never telling her not to look up information i was telling her she didnt half to cause usually the instincts just kick in! Im 8 and me myself i have unanswered questions so i look them up, Never would i ever not want her to get all the help she can by any meanings, sorry to make it sound like I didnt want her to do what she wanted.

Try speaking to a legal aid lawyer or have your boyfriend and if his name is on the birth certificate he has all right to seet he baby if you say it is ok. Just keep in school do your best and when that baby comes she cant stop him from coming around
