I'm 17 years old and 37 weeks pregnant

Hi I'm 17 years old and 37 weeks pregnant. My boyfriend is 26 years old. I had a big shock when I found out I was pregnant,but from that time I knew I would keep the baby. I do not support either abortion or adoption. When I told my parents they were surprised and angry. Things began to go well as time passed. My boyfriend also supported my decision.It's so nice to go to the doctor each month and hear your baby's heartbeat and feel her/his kicks!! Now we are all waiting anxiously for my little baby girl to arrive!

Well done for taking a brave decision and going with the values that you already held. It is sometimes difficult to stand up for what you believe when you have an unplanned pregnancy so young. It sounds as though your family and boyfriend are now looking forward to the new arrival, and you will get the support you need to be a good mum.
