I am scared and not sure what to do. My fiance is all for having the baby but I fear it will be a set back being that I go to school full time and work less then part time. he has a good stable job and knows that we can make it work. I fell that we can as well but I am not sure how to tell my mom. She can be so unpredictable at time and when I tell her this I have no clue what she will say or do. I just need advice on how to tell her and if there is any hope for my fiance and I having and raising this child.

I was in the same exact position as you. Tell her the sooner the better. My mother stopped speaking to me for my entire pregnancy when she found out i was 4 months pregnant. Let her know that you would love to keep her in your life but you are doing what you feel is the most responsible thing you can do. Let her know you've weighed all your options, and you understand that school will school will be put off for a little, but that you will do what it takes to finish school and be able to be a wonderful role model to your child. If her response is negative take it with a grain of salt, and remember YOU are what YOU feel is best for YOUR soon to be family. And if she is happy for you, then congratulations!

Hope my advice helps... if anything you can always message me. I've been in that same exact situation before.
