when are you due? your motherly instincts will kick in. are you living with your parents? will they help you? are you with the baby's father? do you work? have you graduated?

It has nothing to do with your age...every new mom feels nervous, scared, and wtf do I do? :P Those mother instincts will kick in and you'll know exactly what to do when its time.

Do you have a good support system, spouse, parent's ?
Honestly, you learn... there are usually programs you can look up for teen moms in your area. Good luck

It's a good sign that you are considering the kind of parent you want to be. Your concerns and fears about pregnancy and parenting are completely normal. I was older when I had my son and had many of these same thoughts. No matter what other mothers may say, parenting is not easy, but it is filled with rewards. The thing I have to remind myself when things get tough is that it's a season. Pregnancy doesn't last forever, it's a season. The first few weeks after a baby is born and you get much less sleep, that's a season. A sweet little one taking naps in your arms, that's a season, too. I encourage you to check out this article about parenting newborns from an organizaton I am with called Focus on the Family. One of their main goals is to come alongside parents of any age, and offer support. I hope you'll check out some of the other articles in the Parenting section of our website as well as our Thriving Family site. Both of these offer some good advice to help you get started as a parent.

I want you to know that I'll be praying for you as you begin this parenting journey, asking God to you wisdom and strength as you bring up your daughter. One last thought, get some good reading and advice in now, before your daughter is born. You don't have to have it all figured out before July, but your time will be much more limited after the little one arrives. God's best to you!
