Both your parents are accepting of this pregnancy? That is amazing and one giant hurdle down. It sounds as if you are keeping it? Arm yourself with knowledge - 14 is young to have a child, you are going to need a lot of emotional support. Talk with your counselor at school, you might be able to find a teen mom support group in your area.

Good luck.

Have you thought about adoption? Numerous studies show that teens who keep their baby are less likely to finish school, less likely to marry and more likely to live in poverty. If you really want a better life for your baby, place it with a family who can give it what you can't. Contrary to what some may believe, unwed parents who place their children for adoption are not taking “the easy way out” or abandoning their responsibility. Instead, they are placing the needs of their children before their own feelings and desires—the essence of true parenthood. Such a decision is deserving of the highest commendation and respect.
Best of luck in your decisions.

try making money online. You work hard on it now by the time this baby is born it will have what it needs, you should nurse to. good for the baby and you wont need to buy formula, just as long as you eat healthy,

Well no I think what she means is for teens whose parents arent supportive of them having a child or not wealthy enough to meet the needs of the child. I know my single mom wouldnt take care of my child every day while I went to school and work.. And I am not wealthy so I couldnt do day care.. I'm 16 I dont have a job neither does my girlfriend. So I thik she is reffering to the teens like myself..
