I'm 15 and 31 weeks pregnant

Hi I'm 15 and I'm 31 weeks pregnant. I found out I was pregnant a couple of days after my 15th birthday. At first, it was a big shock and I only told my best friend. I had the courage to tell my boyfriend a day later. I was convinced that I was going to have an abortion but that was all in the heat of the moment.
When I told my mum she was shocked, disappointed and angry. She was ready to help me with the baby though. My father wanted me to have an abortion and threatened me every single day. I refused to have an abortion and now I am waiting for the arrival of my baby boy and my boyfriend and I are still together and we are very happy. I went to a counsellor and health advisor,and it helped me.

You have had a lot of courage to continue with your pregnancy at 15. I'm sure the support your mum and boyfriend have given you have made a big difference. I agree with you that seeing a counsellor or trained advisor helps you to think through your decision. You can get accurate information, and explore the different options and what support is available for you. There is always a trained advisor to speak to on the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
