I was 19 when my first daughter was born, 21 when my 2nd was born, and 34 when my next baby will be born. I can imagine how scared you are right now - I've been there. Unlike you, I did have a high school diploma when my first was born, but if you keep your head held high, set goals for yourself and your new baby, and don't EVER let anyone tell you that you can't do something because your young and have a kid, then you'll be just fine. You will struggle but don't let that get you down. Keep moving forward and learn from each set-back. I had a lot of set-backs and very little family support back then - but now I'm in my 2nd year of law school and have 2 awesome kids (and one on the way) to show for all my hard work.
I wish you the best of luck and congratulations!
hi my name is stormy i'm 18 year old and i have two kids a lil girl who is two years old a lil boy who is 5 months old and i am 15weeks along with my 3rd child and just to say it's not so bad and i wouldnt change a thing and there fathers in the pic but he dosent help much i do everything for them but thats my job one that i will not feal at good lucky i hope evrything works out for you like it has for me
Thank you everyone for all your help. I would go to a community college to take my GED but they want to charge me 65 dollars and I can't afford that right now. My brother is 15 and will be going back to school in September and that's when my little girl is born so I have to make sure he has everything for school, cloths wise and school supplies wise, my mom can't do anything because she is disabled. So me, my brother and my finace take care of her. My fiance is only working a part time job 3 days a week if he is lucky I can't get a job til after the baby is born because no one wants to hire a 8 month pregnant girl who is also 18 so everything pretty much sucks right now. I'm doing the best I can to raise my little brother and bring my daughter into the world healthy and make my finace happy, Lol
