Almost not a teen but still mommy to be

I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a going to be a first time mommy. I am 19 years old and i am 19 weeks pregnant today. I am not showing (other than i look like i have a big beer belly as one of my friends said), I am excited but nervous as i am sure is normal. I am not married and the father is supportive although we are living in seperate states for the time being, which is really hard. I am thankful that i have family and good friends to support me. I am the youngest of two daughters but my sister was a teen mom also but she didn't really deal with it in an adult manner (which i guess is typical of young moms). I don't mean abortion or anything just that my mom and I took care of her baby for the first couple of years because she wasn't really responsible. However i love my sister and she has come a long way since then.
I think the hardest part of my announcing i was pregnant was telling my father, because he practically disowned my sister. Yet I am staying with him and he is being the most supportive dad that i know. I am thankful for him and his wife they are the best. Okay well that is most of it in a nutshell. I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to the board. Thanks for listening :)
