its been really good so far. feeling the kicks and movements are so awesome. the babys father doesnt want anything to do with me or the baby which really sucks but i dont really want to push him. we dont talk at all anymore. i moved to australia from new zealand which is where he is. he just turned 20 and just had another girl. it really upset me when i first told him, because all he said to me was, "do you want me to pay for an abortion?" i get that he's proberly really scared. but i just want him to be around so much. but if i need to do it on my own i will do so. i have a great family who are helping me so much. and would love to talk to other mums or mums to be, so i dont feel so alone anymore. :)

I was 14 when I got my first son, and 16 when I got my second, both adopted. (I lived in Benin at the time) You will do fine with a supportive family.
There are ways to make dad pay child support, I don't know what you'd call it there, but he should have to help pay for the childs upkeep. If he's not a safe person, you may not want to go that route.
Keep your chin up, you'll do fine.
