I'm 17 years old and 5 weeks pregnant.By anonymous on 10/03/2014
I'm 17 years old, still in high school, and utterly terrified. I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant on the 6th. The father of the baby, at first, begged for me to have an abortion even though he got me pregnant on purpose. It was to the point where he was threatening me to get the abortion, "or else." I told my mom and she's extremely supportive in my decision to keep the baby. I'm just scared that I won't love this baby like a mother should since I'm so young and there's so much I wanted to do. I desperately want to love and care for this baby. I'm not sure I'm ready to "throw away my life" like everyone describes it. But I know I have to. Everything will be okay in the end, right?
