I’m 15 and I'm 6 months pregnant - I haven't told anyone but it's beginning to show - what can I do?
Hi, I’m 15 and just found out I’m 6 months pregnant. I've been with my boyfriend for 10 months.
I’m still at school and am doing very well; I’m not achieving anything less than B grades.
My boyfriend who is 17 years old says he'll stand by me whatever the decision but I don’t think his heart’s in it.
I also want to tell my mum but I know she'll try to make me get rid of it but I’m showing already. I keep having to hide my body from everyone...I don’t know what to do....I feel as though no-one understands.
I’m also not sure whether I want to keep it I've always wanted a baby but I’m scared about how it will change my life and interfere with school.
I found out my baby will be a boy and I’m going to call him Tyler-Morgan.
My boyfriend is still around but is being really distant. I could really do with his support but I’m not getting it and its only a matter of time before my mum finds out.
WHAT CAN I DO? the school are asking me questions left, right and centre and i cant cope...I feel so alone and scared...what about the financial side of having a baby? My £20 a week pocket money cant stretch that far!!
Please help me, I’m considering suicide after the baby’s born, I just cant face my mum. I just cant!
