I'm the same one who write the "17 and pregnant" post. My mom and sister took me to an abortion clinic. I got there and I freaked out. The lady there told me that they do not do procedures on people who are not 100 percent sure about their choice. So we went and talked to my family together. They were nice and lovey dovey in the office. Once we left, all hell broke loose. By the time we got home, my mom had told me to get out of the house. She said that if I want to give up all my dreams and ruin my life she didn't want to watch. I packed most of my stuff and left. I'm am currently living with the daddy-to-be!! I'm lucky because my obgyn that I had through my insurance has his own clinic with his wife and they agreed to continue seeing me (free of charge). Does anyone have any advice on what steps I should take next? This is all so scarey and it seems to be happening so fast. Is there anyone else out there in my situation? I feel so alone.
You have a roof over your head, hopefully your relationship with the father to be isnt terrible. Continue to take care of yourself and your baby, as a back up you should check around the area for shelters, some areas have group homes just for mothers to be. You have to understand that as soon as you are born parents plan your future and it is honestly disappointing to parents that their thought to be future harvard grad will soon become a teen mom. Family is family, in a perfect world your mom would have been happy to be a grandmom, but hey, shes not. She may come around, she may not. As far as the abortion goes, dont do it because someone else wants you to, do it because you think its the best option for you and your baby! You may find that these are not the ideal circumstances in which you wanted to bring a baby. Good freaking luck girl-
That happens! Especially when the family is closed minded and cant see thru things and think possitively!
But u r lucky enough to have a place to stay, hey just so u know there are lots of centers that will take teen preg girls and give them a roof!! So be sure to check where one is in case u cant live with the dad anymore for whatever reason ok?
And dont worry much, and congrats on the nice gyno!! That's really great news coz ur baby and u will be in good hands. So u dont want to abort the baby or u do?
If you dont, that's great news coz u will have lots of joy with a little one that u created!!
dont worry, everything will come into place once u are settled down and know what u wanna do, and if ur family has thought it thru and decide to help u, that'd be great, if not, the hell with them right now, the first priority is to take care of urself and ur baby!!
