I am very sorry to hear that he left.. but don't give up. You will do just fine, once your baby is here.. everything will be just right again!

Stay Strong (:

Ok well,being alone isnt as hard as it may seem.having a baby young is always going to be hard no matter what.i was pregnant,and had my baby girl Aubree at 16, im 17 now and shes 2 months.
did you have a baby shower?? Baby showers help out a LOT.after I had my baby shower i didn't need to buy anything not even diapers!hm
About you being alone, dont put yourself down.a lot of new mothers have done it and so can you.
i dont or didn't get help from the start.my mom had work all day and my bf and I weren't together.I'm still doing everything myself, and also going to school.
Aubree is my everything!i dont regret having her ever!
Best of luck!!:)

Congrats on your little boy...don't feel ashamed...I'm sorry things are so hard for you right now but hopefully things will get better....its normal to feel like you won't be a good mom I think...even I worry about it sometimes...its nice that your family is supportive and helping you out...staying in school is a good thing for you and your son =] It'll help alot in the future....Goodluck

The worse thing you can do is keep locked inside.I have a son thats 5 months old and im 17.. once he got here everything seemed to settle...my emotions,feelings, and life itself. You are the most important person in your childs life and thats all that matters to be a good mom. Oh, and don't feel like a bum, I live with my aunt and i dont have a job (currently looking lol) but they got everything i needed. Just remember ur DEFFINATLY not alone :)

Hi - I'm not a teen mom, but my stedaughter is. She had her baby at 17 and he's now 2 1/2. When she got pg she was living on the streets, using drugs, stealing, and basically doing everything she shouldn't be doing - she was actually in juvie when she found out she was pg. She now has her own apartment, a car, a job,
