I'm 18 and I'll be 19 when my baby is born. I knew right away to keep him/her. I had been only dating my boyfriend for about a month when I got pregnant so that makes it hard but I'm not 17 weeks and we are more scared than excited but I know when we see our child everything will be fine. I hope everything worked out for you!

I am 18 and 26 weeks pregnant today. I was nervous and scared from the start and it just recently sunk in that I am about to be a single mother. That doesn't stop me from being beyond excited though. My son will have somebody there and we have a support system that isn't just family. Things will be rough but everything is at times. Good luck to you.

Hiya I'm 18 and pregnant I've been with my fiancé for 9 months and very happy the best thing to do is not stress your self about being a young mum is normal these days read books on pregnancy and birth....honestly I.was scared at first but as the time gets closer it gets much easier trust me and once you hold your baby u will forget all of your worry... GOOD LUCK AND ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR GONNA DO GREAT

I turned 19 a few months ago and just found out that I am pregnant with my first. My boyfriend already has 2 amazing little boys. They are almost 2 and 3. I am due a month before I turn 20. I love those little boys more than anything. I have also realized that I am going to be an actual mom. I am a mom to the little boys because I am the one who is with them all the time and take care of them, but to think that I am going to have one of my own just amazes me.

I was 18 when I got pregnant with my daughter and 19 when she was born. If you have a great support system everything will be fine. Don't forget Rome wasn't built in a day and unfortunately the baby isn't born and suddenly everything you need to know about being a mom is known. Don't be affraid to ask questions and for help on stuff with the baby. You will learn things as you go and eventually you will feel like you've always been a mom doing these things that you do. Breastfeeding is hard but if you decide to do it just keep pushing through those first weeks its the most amazing feeling and bond you can have with your little one. Just remember to stay calm :) feel free to message me if you have any other questions :)

I am 18 also with my first child. My baby boy is due in July. I was very nervous when I found out I was pregnant. I didnt think I was ready. Sometimes I still dont think I am. I know that everything happens for a reason. I could have easily prevented my pregnancy but I didnt. Ive found that it really helps to have someone to support me and help me through everything. Just keep your head up and take childbirth classes if you can. I heard that it is very helpful and nice to be around other pregnant women like yourself. I love to talk to people who are in kindof the same situation as me so anytime you can message me. I hoped this helped. Good Luck.

omg!!! i know how u feel im so nervous im 18 and due in three months. its comin so fast! i am very excited but feel like i am not ready but im told by everyone i am lol. im sure u will start to feel better about it after u get farther along and get some things
im 28 now preg with my 4th. I fell preg with my first when i was 18... my girl is 10 this year and i could not imagine life without her:-)))) a lot of ppl said i could not do it, that i would not cope. I proved all them wrong and now get compliments of how much of a good mum i am. just because u r young it does not mean u will find it any more difficult than an older mum. best of luck u will be fine... read lots of bubba books:-)))
My mom had her first at 17... her second at 18 me at 20 and my baby sister at 21
If she can handle all of that at 21, You'll be fine...
My Sister Had her baby at 17... she is in love with that baby boy.... didnt really have anything when she got pregnant.. but everything turned out fine... and you will too!
I just turned 20 this month and im about 6 wks. I hear that labor isnt as bad as people say... My mom had drug free births for two of us.... and she said it all depends on how high your tolerance for pain is... I have a pretty high tolerance... so im going drug free as well..... :D I imagine its something i'll be proud of... but anyways... good luck!

I was 18 when I found out I was pregnant the first time around and just 7 weeks after my 19th birthday my little girl came. Now I'm 21 and due on the 24th March with my second. I have been married for 2 years, we have been living together for 3 and been together for 5 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. Good luck and don't be nervous as soon as you hold your little one everything will fall into place :)

i was 18 when i found out i was pregnant the first time. I was in college and my boyfreind had just proposed to me. It was not the best situation for us and sure we would of liked to of plan our son, but i think things happen for a reason. We now are married, have a beautiful 4 year old son and our second baby is due in just under 8 weeks. Things have worked out awsome for us. For the first few months of our sons life we lived with my parents because we could not afford a house or anything like that. So we saved money while living with my parents and managed to put a down deposit on a house when our son was 5 months old and we have been living there happily since. I was scared to death to become a mother, but i had a good support system and have done just fine over the past years. Everything happens for a reason and you are going to make a great mum, good luck and try not to worry to stress about things as soon as you see your baby your motherly instincts will kick in. I wish you all the best!
