Hey ya'll. I'm from the Philippines and i'm due on Feb. 4, 2010. I'm only 19 years old. I found out that I was pregnant just recently and I was already four months pregnant. I was sooo scared to tell my parents. I'm a graduating student and would most probably take up law. I am so scared. I am not yet ready. I'm young AND do not know how to raise a child. I have so many fears. I feel like this is more than the pregnancy blues. Anyway, my parents found out about it. I had no choice but to tell them. They were so devastated, angry, sad, disappointed. My mom was inconsolable and my older brother was so sad. After that, me and my mom went to the doctor, we told her that I just found out recently about the pregnancy. Now, I am worried because I took antibiotics because of my chronic sinusitis, flu, cough and at my first trimester, I took medicines and I smoked.I am so worried on what would happen to my baby, Aside from not being prepared and being lonely, I feel like I have jeopardized my baby's development and health. I need a support group, people, I don't know what to do. My family still can't accept it. Even for me, it hasn't sunk in yet. :'(((
PS The father of the baby wants to be part of the baby's life but my dad doesn't want him to be in the picture.
