My boyfriend wants me to keep it and is extremely supportive while me on the other hand I'm thinking of the freedom I'll miss out on & how it is way too early .

Hi Autumn, I had my first child 2 weeks after my 18th birthday 26yrs ago, reading your post I felt a brief sensation of the terror I felt learning I was pregnant, mind racing and my boyfriend being proud and happy, which I couldn't relate to or understand. I imagine you feel similar and sadly nothing or no one will ease that for you right now, HOWEVER I can offer you something to slow down your racing thoughts and get through the scared feeling a little faster, My advice for you is first thing you should do is fight the urge to keep talking about all the possible outcomes for the future based on tryimg to decide what to do about your pregnancy, allow yourself the courtesy of processing the pregnancy without pressuring yourself to plan a baby's future. As the fear leaves your mind gets quieter so you'll be able to hear your feelings loud and clear, take comfort in knowing you'll make the right choice, and a quick way to re-direct your thoughts is ask yourself if this moment will matter in 10 years, the answer is no and that's def a calming thought!

Hi.. 18years is too really too early to deliver a baby.. u must first analyse if you have the strength to handle delivery and most importantly the baby should be fine growing... first consult a doctor get counselling and then proceed... all the best!
