I'm 17 and I've just found out I'm pregnant!
By anonymous on 10/12/2010I'm 17 and I've just found out I'm pregnant! Well I say found out, but its a bit complicated. I was 7 days late with my period so I done a test and it was positive. Since then I have done another 3 tests all on different days and they we're all positive also. But I don't feel pregnant. I feel normal! So I went to my Doctor and told her but she didn't ask me to do a test or take a blood test or anything :/ so I'm a little confused. I am now 12 days late and the tests are still reading positive. But that's just the beginning. Me and my partner are together but when I told him, he said straight away that he doesn't want it, and that he wants me to get an abortion.
I still don't know what I want.I don't think I could live with myself if I get rid of it, but I'm scared of becoming a mother. I still don't know what I want. I have only told my partner and a few close friends. I have not told my family.
My sister had a little baby girl 6 months ago, and sadly she only lived for 4 weeks. So my family are still grieving for her, which is also another reason why I do not want to get rid of it. My sister would do anything to have her baby girl back! And I think me getting rid of one is just selfish! I don't think I would ever be able to look my sister in the face again! I don't think she would ever forgive me!
My partner has a pretty decent job he brings in enough to support a baby. But I don't think he is ready to give up his luxuries to do so. He drives, and had a very supportive family, so its not like we couldn't actually do it because I believe we could. I am in my second year of college but my college has daycare place that I could take my baby if I kept it. So I could still go to college and sort myself out.
Sorry for the essay! I really need some advice. Please HELP! X
