Some teens believe that their only option would be an abortion. While I say it is your decision and the boyfriend has some say in it, you should really think about it. You can survive having a child and you will be able to take care of the child if you have your priorities right.


As a pregnant teen, it is important to consider all of your options. Abortion is one option, but you should also consider adoption or raising the baby yourself. It is possible to raise a child while still in school, as long as you have the support of family and friends. You should also consider the financial and emotional commitment that comes with raising a child. There are numerous resources available to help you make an informed decision, including counseling and support groups. Ultimately, the choice is yours and it is important to make the decision that is best for you and your baby.


Don’t Give up

No matter what you do, you should never give up. Keep moving forward to make your life and your child’s life better. You can succeed.


Pregnant teens face unique challenges that can be overwhelming. But with the right support, they can raise healthy, happy children. Here are some tips for pregnant teens to help them navigate their situation. Don’t give up! No matter what you do, you should never give up. Believe in yourself and have faith that you can make your life and your child’s life better. Find support from family, friends, and professionals who can help you through your pregnancy. Seek out resources like financial assistance, counseling, and parenting classes. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. With the right support and guidance, you can find success as a pregnant teen.


You Don’t Have to Hide It

When teens are pregnant, they try to hide it. Sometimes, they go on “vacations” for nine months to a relative’s house where they have the child. You do not have to hide it from your friends. It is nothing to be ashamed of. Sure, it may be a symbol of a mistake you made, but it’s a mistake you will not regret when it gets here.


Pregnancy can be a difficult time for teens, but it doesn’t have to be. It is important for pregnant teens to reach out to their family and friends for support. There are many resources available to pregnant teens, such as online support groups, pregnancy centers, and counseling services. Additionally, teens should take care of their physical health by eating nutritious meals, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest. It is also important to take time to relax and practice self-care. Finally, teens should make sure to stay up to date on prenatal care visits and follow any instructions given by their doctor.


You Can Still Go to School

When I was in high school, do you know how many pregnant girls I knew? They still chose to go to school. Yes, there were some who quit and then we later found out they got pregnant, but you should definitely continue schooling. If not, then there is another option.


Try for a GED

The other option would be to get your GED. If you do not go to school, then at least go and get your GED. Again, this is your decision, so whatever you decide should be right for you.


You Don’t Need to Get Married

Just because you are pregnant does not mean you need to get married. This may be the reason behind a lot of divorces. They get married because the girl was pregnant. You should only get married if you can see the two of you together in the future. If you get married, then that is great, the two of you can start your family early and grow together.


Make Sure You Tell Your Parents

When you find out that you are pregnant, you should tell your parents. Don’t try to hide it from them. This is a time in your life when you will be scared and the parents should be the people you can go to.


Don’t Feel Depressed

Most of all, you should not feel depressed. The baby can feel that. You need to be healthy so that the baby can be healthy. Make sure you eat the right foods and go to the doctor. Cheer up and know that in nine months or less, you will have a true blessing.

While I do not recommend purposely getting pregnant as a teenager, especially when you do not have a job, I know that sometimes, things happen. As I said, it’s not the end of the world and there is still hope. Now, it’s time to start learning about babies! It’s an exciting time, no matter how old you are, so you should enjoy it and learn from your “mistakes.” All through life, we learn from our mistakes. I was born in 1985, I got married in October of 2003 and had a little girl in June of 2004. I will let you do the math there and today, I have no regrets and am happier than ever. So, what about you? Do you have something to tell?

hi. I found out i am pregnant 2 days ago. I think im about 3 or 4 weeks. But ive broken up with my boyfriend. Im really scared. My parents are Very vary old fashioned and dont believe in sex before marrige. Im almost 17. i know that they are going to chuck me out of the house. Im so scared. please help.

Well first off. I am 15 and pregnant. My boyfriend is 21, and yes you may all say he will get introuble but the state already closed the case. I am 4 mnths and 1 week pregnant. Pretty soon i will find out what my lil angel is. But i am havinq a hard time with my online schoolinq. I want to get my GED but i cnt until im 16. I am workinq a full time job. and i dnt turn 16 until november. I live in ohio and there is really no programs that will help me where i am located. Should i drop out and wait to get my GED until im 16?

In India you cant do any of this. Pregnancy below 20 is illegal here (not literally)! Though it is practiced! Even you cant have a baby without marrying at any age as that will bring you social hatred only. If you are unmarried and pregnant you can be thrashed to death to restore your familly honour in severe cases and which is not so uncommon. I appreciate the post as I found them to be helpfull for those it is written. It is not recommended to get pregnant earlier than 18 as your body is not totally ready then and can be harmful for both you and your little angel. So enjoy life with care and protection.(I am nutritionist,biologist, food scientist and social activist, so I think I have the right to say this)

I love your tips. I was already happy after i got over the worries and what ever. But you made it so much better. Helped me realize i will be okay. Idk if ur religious or not but i always say god doesnt put things in your path if you cant handle it. So god must know i will be okay.
