here's my story: I'm 17 and 13 weeks pregnant with my ex-boyfriends baby. I don't like my ex one bit, I never really wanted to be with him in the first place but I couldn't find the right way to end things with him. Finally I got the guts to do it but the day that happened was the day I found out I was pregnant i was devastated. I also have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and I have quit taking my meds for it since I read it could possibly cause birth defects. My doctors say its as safe as Tylenol during pregnancy but I got too scared with what I found online. So now I can barely walk let alone stand up off the couch. I just recently (as in the past 8 months) lost A LOT of weight and i was beginning to have the life I always wanted since my arthritis took away most of my childhood. Now that I'm pregnant and unable to walk, I've gained more weight then what I'm supposed to. It makes me cry when i try to put on my old size 3 jeans and they dont go up my legs. None of my friends call or text me anymore, I don't even see the point in having a cell phone anymore. I have so much resentment towards my ex for getting me pregnant, I know its my fault that this has happened too but I have the oddest feeling that he got me pregnant on purpose just to keep me around. He says he wants to be apart of the pregnancy but he texts me once every 2 weeks (if I'm lucky) to see how I'm doing. Every time I ask him for money to buy something for the baby or a doctors apt he has some excuse on why he's broke even though he has a job. Last time I asked for money he blew up on me and that was a little over two weeks ago and he hasn't talked to me since. I feel so alone and depressed. It eats at me every day. Any advice? please be nice, I can't handle any harsh judgments, I get enough of that from my father. thanks.
u r a perfect candidate for termination of pregnancy and right now is the time since u waited this long. . now
but I tend to look at things realistically; facts, figures, percentages and this has failure written all over it. for so many reasons; starting with u r not mature enough, educated enough, experienced enough, your health is crap to start. . . I will stop there as u can go on about money, jobs, intact family, etc
wish u the best no matter what
you're surely placing some harsh judgments against me for someone who doesn't know me. My health isn't "crap" for starters, I'm sure you dont know anything about JRA so unless you're an arthritis doctor you should keep that opinion to yourself. I don't believe in being a baby killer just based on your so called "realistic facts". I made a mistake on having sex at a young age but I'm not going to take that out on a innocent life that did nothing to deserve it. If you believe homicide, that's your decision but its not mine.
I was in the same porstion as you but i was olny 13 when it happend ... i told myself i dont belive in abortion but i was olny 13 and i wasnt ready bringing baby into the world when you have them sorts of feelign for your e is bad fr your baby ... I know be hard but i think a abortion is probely the best way forwarddd.
I think you should reconsider taking your meds for JRA. Where did you find that it can cause birth defects? Did you speak to your doctor about that? You should find out every thing you can and possibly get a 2nd opinion about it because you still have a long way to go with your pregnancy and I know the JRA is causing you a lot of discomfort. You need some kind of relief for it. As far as your friends, if they were REAL friends they wouldn't ditch you because of the situation you're in. They should still support you and be there for you. So either tell them how you feel and see if there's a change. If not, screw them. You're ex boyfriend seems like a joke. If he really wants to be apart of the pregnancy then he needs to help you and check in way more often. How old is he? Everything you're going through is very unfortunate. It's not going to be easy but you can get through all of this with the right mindset and support system.
I found it on the Journal of Arthritis website, it was a study they preformed on the drug. I talked to a high risk doctor and he told me it's totally safe to take so I have decided to take half the dosage I was prescribed every two weeks (I was originally supposed to take it once a week). I am able to walk with little to no pain most of the time. My ex is 18 and extremely immature for his age.
wow, you're a tough girl going through all of this. I'm so sorry you are *hugs*
Reading these posts of people saying to terminate it is really upsetting. I'm not going to tell you what to do but I do know there are so many options. Adoption, open or closed. Either way, it's your baby and your choice.
A girl who went to my church became a missionary and was used while in China and she had no idea who the man was. She found out she was pregnant there too. The conditions there are awful so they just looked at it as a loss. I don't know what happened, I think it was her faith and belief in God and prayers, but she ended up having a healthy baby boy.
People can say what they want but in the end, it's God's will. A lot of people do become afraid or confused and end up showing it through anger. If you want to, you could try counseling and if your family is up for it, maybe they can join in so they can understand better. I wish you the best, I really do. Don't let anyone upset you, because like you said, we don't know you or your situation. Hang in there.
"no wedding no womb" hahaha! your nothing but a joke. grow up. seriously. i never said i was cutting the father out of its life. its HIS choice to not be apart of it. you're 13, you shouldn't be giving advice on something you know NOTHING about. Call me stupid or whatever you like but until you walk a mile in my shoes i could care less what you say k?
ok please stop attacking this young woman. Yes she may be young but NONE of you know her maturity level and it's not your right to judge her. She's having a real issue and it's her choice to keep or abort this child. She's being a lot smarter than most girls in her situation, she's asking for help and not trying to figure it out on her own when it can become too late and she doesn't have a choice. I give her a lot of props for being brave enough to come to people for help and ya'll aren't making it easy on her, being a young adult is hard enough. I speak from a lot of experience in dealing with young parents my family is filled with them and each and every one of them has kept the child and their lives are wonderful some starting as young as 13. So don't you try to crucify her. Darlin' Good luck! if you want help or need to talk just email me and I'll get back to you

Brandy, my prayers are with you and wish you ALL the best !! You are going through a REAL tough time and appears are getting little or no support, emotionally nor financially from anyone. Maybe you can find some positive encouragement and support from your local religious organization. i know for a fact that no matter what denomination you are or religious beliefs, your local Christian organization will welcome you with open arms and will do whatever they can to support and help you. Good luck to you and God Bless ~ Patty P
