Hi I am 15 and not 16 for another 6 months. My little angel is expected in 12 weeks and I am finding times exciting as well as hard.
Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in…you seem to have very mixed emotions about your situation, enjoying the fact that you’re expecting a baby, but feeling isolated and friendless, despite support from your mum. I want to encourage you that, in your heart, you obviously have a desire to be a good mum; you’re willing to learn and you’re being responsible about looking after yourself during the pregnancy. Well done for staying at school! It’s not easy. It might do you good to visit your nearest centre and see if they can put you in touch with other young mums your age. Let us know how you get on with your pregnancy – we look forward to hearing from you again.
