Expecting teen mom and VERY scared

Brittany - posted on 09/27/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am single and I just turned 20 and found out that I am 5 weeks pregnant. Of course I informed my mother and as always she didnt take it so well. My baby's father decided that he isn't the father. I am alone and I am really scared. Everyone thinks it's a bad idea to have my baby and I just don't know. I don't want to be selfish and bring a baby into this world with no support but at the same time I know I can do it. Is there any mom out there that can please help me

If you know you can take care of her, and you want to, then go right ahead. I gave birth to my first at 19. Pretty much alone. I had no bio-family in the state.

The first rule of being a mom, love.The second rule is try. That's the main thing. Always try to be better than you were the day before. If you can do those 2 things then you'll be okay. Don't expect perfect, that never happens.

When the baby is born make sure you go in and get child support. He might say he isn't the father but DNA will say he owes that child money. You might not get much, but try just the same.
