Hey guys my name is Raquel I'm 19 years old and I'm 10 weeks pregnant, I'm very lost and confused on wether or not to keep the baby, I have always said abortion for me was out of the picture. But my boyfriend I feel is very dead set on me having an Abortion. Which I understand his reason if we decide to keep the baby we risk being kicked out of his house and end up not having a place to go. My boyfriend is currently In school trying to get his high school diploma and working part time I currently don't have a job but am looking for one I was just wondering if any one could offer my some advice on this decision, I'm very scared and don't think I can handle having an abortion, but I'm also scared I'm going to end up pregnant and homeless. Everyone tells me I can't do it, and us having this baby will be a stupid idea. Am I stupid for wanting to keep my baby even though my situation isn't a good one?

Hi, my name is andrea, right now i am 26. But with my first baby i was 19 when i.found out.i was.pregnant. i was in a similar situation. I had fought everything inside of me from.giving her up.for adoption and abortion, i even had a family.picked out.for her. By the end of my.pregnancy i had decided to keep her, and i vowed to make her.life good. Her biological father left me, and then i was a.single mother who was 20 yrs old. Having a baby is hard, having a baby before you are ready is the most difficult thing i have ever done. I worked harder those first years of her life then i have ever worked and probably ever will again. No one can tell you what to do, and i cant tell you what i think you should do. I do know.for.me that when i decided to keep my baby i made a promise.to her that i would give her a.good life, and a good family, and i busted my butt every single day.to.make that happen. If you and your man are.not ready.to.do that, find someone who is. And if.you think you can give your child a better life then someone else, then go.for.it. A child doesnt deserve to be born homeless and hungry. So its time for.you to think about whats best.for your child and not.you or.him
