I'm 19 years old and 22 weeks pregnant. I don't want this baby. I'm so mad, sometimes I think about abortion, but I know I'm too far along. My parents do not support adoption or abortion; they want me to pursue parenting. I get so mad- sometimes I tell the baby I hate it over and over and over. Sometimes I even contemplate suicide because I'm so mad. I just don't know if this is normal. I have a few pregnant friends and they are all so excited about becoming mothers. I seem to be the only one that is dreading becoming a mother. And I have no choice. If I give the baby up for adoption, my family will disown me and kick me out. I just don't know how to feel better about this. I want to be happy. I want to be excited like other girls.
