I'm 17 (turning 18 in a month) and my boyfriend is 20 and I just found out that I'm pregnant. My family knows and so does my boyfriend's family. My mother is wanting me to get an abortion and gets angry when I talk about wanting to keep the baby. She says that she'll support me no matter what I choose but I can tell she's hesitant about me having it. My boyfriend's family is being very supportive and have already offered to help throughout the pregnancy and when the baby is born.
I'm scared. I know I'm not ready to be a mother and I know it'll be very tough for me and for my family and my boyfriend's but I know we can get through it. I don't know if I can do that to my boyfriend, I don't want him to have to give up his freedom for my choice but he said he'll support me no matter what.
If someone can give me some advice or share your own story to help me make a choice that'd be great.
