Life has a funny way of throwing a curve ball into our plans, doesn't it? ;) It will be ok and if your family hates you for having a BABY... well, then that's 'family' that I'd certainly be limiting our exposure with asap.

thank you i think all i need is someone to tell me that it is going to be ok. i am in a relationship with the babys father who is also my 3 year olds father. and since i am due in february and i will be done with school right after xmas i will not have to deal with a baby while in school

Good to hear you are keeping the baby. You are old enough to make your own decisions, if your family doesn't understand then oh well. Are you married or single? Finish school and get that associates! Have family members or whomever help out.

How can they hate you? You are a grown woman. You made a choice and now have to live with it. So they won't help out? What about his family? Get on WIC right away and get government assistance. You will be covered and so will your 3 year old and unborn baby. I don't know if you live in the states or not, but that's what I did when I had no income. They provide you with food and medical.

So do that right away. You won't have any copay's either.
