I'm 19 and i am scared too. But i have a good support system. Once the baby gets here and my motherly intincts kick in i'm sure i'll do great and i am sure that will be the same for you. Hang in there!

I'll be 17 in July, and my due date is October 8th. Your right being pregnant is not easy it is very stressful and this is my first also.. I'm sure their is people around that can help you talk through everything and baby books help a lot also :) I've gotten a couple already and one for my boyfriend,. You only live a state away from me I believe maybe we can chat or text sometime I know a lot for being young and expecting my first!

hi! Im 18 and having my first! It is very stressful and there is a lot to think about. But you need to have good support group! and the baby books will help you alot. My advice is convince your boyfriend to get another job and it doesnt matter what it is because any income will help! I dont think even if you wanted to get another job you could because most jobs wont hire someone who is that far along in pregnancy because in a few months your going to have to take 3 months off. But your going to have mother instincts, you probably are starting to think differently now and your outlook on things are probably changing right? because I know mine are already and I havent had the kid yet. My friends and my family are my biggest support group right now and they will be the best when my baby is here. The 11 year old who is saying its easy is seriously crazy because shes 11! and has no idea what life is. Its easy because she is so young and her parents are probably just taking care of the baby and she is going on with her life like no problem but since the grandparents did such a great job with their daughter I dont think their grandchild will have that much of a different life. Like how can a mother and father even let that happen? what are they allowing their child to watch or who are they hanging out with? I guess since you have those examples around you, you will know what NOT to do and you will be a great mother.

I had my twins when I was 17 and it wasn't easy but you'll get through it. I graduated college with no support from my parents or in laws and I was working full time. I truely believe that you can do it and that its great that you want to be the best mom you can be! You'll be fine and I wish you the best of luck! PM me if you have any questions about my teen pregnancy my twins are turning 3 in August :)
