I found out I was pregnant like 2 weeks ago, my first one and I'm still in high school, I'm a little scared and would love some advice! I'm still with the father we are currently looking for a place, any help?

I'm 23 love and I currently raise four young girls. The best thing for you to do is tell your parents. Find out what's going to be done to prevent another pregnancy from happening. This is serious, having a child is a matter that needs to be taken care of immediately. The baby needs proper nourishment and you have to be making healthy choices and going to the doctor regularly for check ups and ultrasounds. Speak to someone that can help you take the next few steps and could support you emotionally and physically. You are very young and have to accept the fact that you made an adult decision and now have to face it. It won't be easy but It'll be okay. Be smart hun, I'm speaking from experience.

Please make sure your parents know and hopefully they will support you. Make sure you take your prenatal vitamins, and go for your check ups. Being with the father is great but keep in mind that if it doesn't work you still need to have a relationship with the father. Reconsider getting a place with the father, don't be so hasty. If you have good support try to go back to school, further your education so that you can be a great example to your baby and be able to support him/her. Remember it's not about you anymore, everything you do from now on, you have to think about how it will affect your baby. Wish you all the best, think before you make decisions.

you need to talk to your parents ! and hopefully make the best choice for the BABY !! not you . its hard being a mom and it is even harder being a single mom. so hopefully you have a strong support system (family ) to help !! it is a 24 hour a day job .that you have whole response ability for .. hopefully the dad will be by your side But that doesn't usually happen at such a young age .It can but .. good luck to you and Talk about it >> don' t hide it all to yourself good luck to you
