Well I'm 15 and I have just found out I'm pregnant.

Well I'm 15 and I have just found out I'm pregnant. I don't know what to do, I'm in care and away to get a flat on my 16th birthday which will be in May. I don't know if I will cope, I'm scared in case I get post natal depression.
Well I'm 15 and I have just found out I'm pregnant. I'm scared my life will be over before it has even started, instead of going out on a weekend I will be sitting in helping my baby.
All my friends tell me to get an abortion but I am totally against that.
