17 & Pregnant

When I found out I'm pregnant, it came as a complete surprise. My boyfriend and I had used protection frequently, although not all the time. We honestly weren't careful enough, but I really wanted a baby, even though I knew it should wait. Well, we're expecting.

I'm having a lot of issues with my mum. We fight constantly, and I know that can't be good for the baby. I'm honestly so unsure of how to handle all this, and I'm not completely sure of what's supposed to be happening to me. I've only begun to browse this site, and it seems to be very helpful.

Right now, I'm scared of losing the baby. My mum told me I should get an abortion, and I burst out crying. I can't kill my baby, and I won't. Ever since, all she does is scream and try to start fights with me. I'm terrified it's going to cause a miscarriage.

Everything's changing right now, and instead of her providing support and guidance and what to expect, she only screams at me and asks me if I'm stupid, and what what I thinking getting pregnant this young. It wasn't planned, believe me. But since it's here, I'm going to follow through.

I'm not sure what to feel. I'm just so worried of losing the baby. x
