    hey i was due around the same time as you last year, it goes quick! enjoy these last few weeks of freedom- go for walks and shopping without having to take bottles or binkies or blankies or a crying BABY! I had the same experience, i couldnt imagine myself as a mum and i was single- I CRIED ALOT!. But believe me no matter what you get through it, You have alot of inner strength as a Woman and as a Mother- your strength comes from the love you have for you child, a deep love that will make you grow stronger every day whether your 15 or 45. You have a gorgeous belly, Good luck with the next 12 weeks or so.. it will go fast and your going to see alot of growth! Dont forget to post your post partum pictures after :D

    Take care. xox

    Thanks for Keeping your baby. Don’t feel sad about having a child. Or even afraid. I have a friend who was 17 when she got pregnant and he son will be 2 in march. She was afraid too but she is one of the best moms I have ever met! You will be ok and if you have your mom there. You will do even better. Having a parent who is supportive is a real blessing.

    Congrats on your pregnancy!!
    I am a young mother as well. My son is 5 months old I cried everyday in the beginning and didnt know what I was going to do. I had no money, no career and had no clue how to be a mother. But together my fiance and I made it work and as soon as I gave birth and held my little man in my arms I knew I had made the right decision to keep him and that he truly was a blessing.
    you’re gonna be one hot, young momma and those are some Beautiful Belly shots!!

    Good Luck!

    You’re right. It’s a blessing! I’m glad that you didn’t get the abortion because there is a real baby in there that you will REALLY love!
    God bless you. He chose you to be your baby’s mother. That’s special. That’s a wonderful blessing!

    Oh, I hope you give breastfeeding a shot. Not only is it the best nutrition for your baby, but the bonding is AMAZING! Do some research on it online and talk to your Lactation Consultant while you’re in the hospital with your baby.
    God bless you! I hope your delivery is smooth and your recovery is quick! :)

    I think youre going to do very well. You show maturity in doubting your ability. It shows you understand that their needs come first, and that you’re ready to take a look at yourself and get ready. You’re doing a great thing, and having a child is the most amazing thing you can experience. I had my son April 25, 2005. I had so many fears and doubts, and I was 26! He is the light of my life, and I’m glad I have him. It will be harder, and easier!, than you think :)

    I’m glad your mother is giving you support. That will be a great help for you after the baby is born. I too hope to see some post partum pictures later!

    hey, i was touched by what you wrote. you are being very brave. it takes that kind of strength to be a mom. as for crying alot, you gotta do what you gotta do. my advice is yah its gonna be tough but it is a blessing bigger than anything. to give birth for me was to be reborn. i suggest looking into midwives(not sure where you live but in some places its paid for rather than seeing a doctor) also natural birth. natural birth truly can prepare you for becoming a mom. after going trhough it you feel you can do anything! and because your going to face alot of doubt and challenges you need to know deep down you are a strong capable young woman.
    let your heart guide you

    Children are truely the greatest gift this life will ever give you. I had my 1st daughter when i was 18years old. I was very scared at first. But the moment you see your beautiful baby’s face, everything changes. Motherhood has its ups and downs but it is all worth it. Just think of how the support of your mother helps you. I was lucky enough to have a supporting mother myself. And know that you need to give that child your all as well!! Put that child above all else. I promise you its the best and most rewarding life long experience. take care!

    Congratulations! Becoming a mother is definetely a life changing moment.
    I was a very young teen mother.
    I was 14 when I had my daughter- who is now 16.
    My advise to you;
    Never withhold any love from your baby
    Don’t overwhelm yourself with doubts and worries if your doing a good job or not- show your baby unconditional love
    Take some healty time for yourself; you’ll have to take good care of yourself
    But especially, no matter what you have to sacrifice, PLEASE do not ever resent the fact that you are a mother and do not ever sacrifice being there for your baby no matter what.
    There is nothing more painful than seeing your child struggle to become an adult because of an insecure childhood and constantly feeling that only if you would have let your own insecurities go, this beautiful girl wouldn’t have had to go through so much pain.
    Please take care of your beautiful baby.
