Great advice :D
Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" Its sad and unfortunate, but alot of teen mom's end up single parenting for a time. Most teen guys just ... [snip!] ... like everywhere else you run into b***hes from time to time. Most of the women on here are awesome though, and very supportive."
It isn't just teen guys who act like that lol. My BD is 23 & still is a shit head :D lmfao.

This happened to me too, although he didn't try to force adoption or abortion just stated he wanted the baby but not me. Our son is 20mos and we reconciled a couple months ago.
Quoting :" i look up everything, even if i get a small pain i look it up to make sure its okay. and im just hoping ... [snip!] ... have the doctors appointments and what time they are and things like that. but i cant force him into being a dad. i know that. "
It sounds like your on the right track :) As for researching, it is more than just the pains (although every first time mom goes through that lol) its about looking into whats good to put into your body when pregnant, and what are things that are harmfull to you and your LO. I wont overwhelm you with all the decisions you are going to have to make when your baby gets here lol. Its hard, and can be frusterating, but in the end it is so worth it.

LOL very true. Then again they say men dont fully mature untill they are 25 or something like that... I dont know how true that is, but sounds good to me :wink:

Sounds about right, although I tend to think they don't fully mature until they hit 30 lol.
Quoting MommaSav2:" Have you been to the doctor? Two and half month is not a dry accurate account of how far along you are. ... [snip!] ... are. I'm guessing 10-11 weeks. It's your body an your choice but abortion or adoption should be your leading options right now."
Why would that be her leading options? If anything those should be her last options. You people kill me... getting pregnant and the first thing you do is try to avoid responsibility even if if it means killing or giving away your child. That's pathetic and weak. I'm not against either choice but it damn sure shouldn't be your first thought. God gives you a blessing as big as a child and you want to throw it away... I'm done.
Quoting :" oh i know, i'm a vegetarian so i'll look up different things that i should eat and different recipes ... [snip!] ... a girl or boy, i intend to just get everything set up sooner rather than later. im excited, but very nervous at the same time."
Sounds like you'll do a great job :D I was the same way with my first, and I am starting to feel that way again now. I LOVE being a mom. I'm still nervous about everything lol. I feel like time is closing in on me with only 13 weeks untill I hit my 40 weeks, and hell, who knows if she will be here early or late. I'm nervous about how my Son will do with his baby sister, and if he is going to have a hard adjustment. I'm nervous about how me and my DH will adjust to having two babies, especially since they will only be 21 months apart... I look at it like from the time you get pregnant, till the day you die, you will always be nervous and worried about something lol. No one really knows how to be a parent untill they are one, and even then some people never figure it out. You sound pretty mature, and I think you will do just fine. Just take it one day and one step at a time.

Move on. I'm entitled to my opinion and this girl seems to have her shit as much together as a teenager can but I still feel that any teenager who finds themself pregnant should consider abortion or adoption before they consider parenting. IMO its not a selfish choice to go with either of those options and its MUCH mote selfish to bring a child into the world when you have no mrans to support them, like most teenagers. Abortion and adoption are smart choices. Also, choosing to go with either abortion or adoption is not somehow avoiding the situation and NOT taking responsibility, they are valid options when you're faced with an unwanted pregnancy and no matter what a woman chooses it is taking reponsibility and making the choice that best suits her. Get off your high horse, other people are entitled to their opinions, asshat.
