I totally understand feeling like you wish you weren't alone right now. It's not easy facing an unexpected pregnancy so young. But you sound like you love your little one and can't wait to meet him/her. So, good for you for doing what you know is right for you and your baby. As far as some support right now, have you thought about contacting a local Crisis Pregnancy Center (you can find them on optionline.org)? But just meeting with other women who know what you're going through can be huge. So, might be something to look into...

Hey I was pregnant at 18 and had my son at 19, he's one now. I can totally relate to how you feel. My ex partner promised me the world when we was together after that I shortly fell pregnant, we got thrown out of my parents house when they found out I was pregnant, when we'd argue he'd threaten me that nobody would want a single mother and how would I know how to look after a baby without him, I remember being 5 months pregnant and being so frightened of having a baby and not a clue how to look after one, all I can say from my experience your maternal instinct really kicks in as soon as your baby is placed in your arms and it's alot easier than you'd think, I don't really miss partying but sometimes I feel like I'm no longer free to do what I like, but to be honest I'd probably be doing what I was doing before I was pregnant which was going out getting in trouble and waking up still drunk lol, theres more to life then that and I think a baby can open your eyes to it. It's scary enough being pregnant never mind feeling like your doing it on your own I don't think you can really prepere for that,I just read up on loads of mums books and let my instinct do the rest, I basically brought him up on my own for 6 months and then he left anyways but it never made a difference as he never helped or done his fair share, if you have family or anybody to watch baby once you've had him/her then your still entitled to go out with your friends and still be who you are regardless if you have a baby or not! I feel so judged being 'a young mum ' and going out! But I don't go out even once a month now it doesn't bother me tho, good luck and all the best to you x

Thanks so much and I know right I feel like right now I'm going through so much pain but when my baby comes I feel like it will all leave , I just can't wait to kiss my baby and cuddle with it . But at the same time I do hope my baby's father gains some sense and comes back but I think by that time I'll be over him not wanting a relationship.
