hi Elizabeth my names christie im 17 and 24 weeks pregnant,
i dont see how she could try and take your child if your not a unfit mother, she would probably have to make up a lot of lies even if she does work for CPS. i think thats a good idea how your parents have a lawyer or planning to get one just in case she does try anything. have you talked to you bf about it? i would tell her or get him to tell her and she how she acts cause shes going to find out sooner or later. congrats on your pregnancy :) hope i help GL with everything.

Thanks alot. Really :) Its nice too hear a breath fresh air. Ive talked to him AND tried to talk to her. He swears it wont happen. But she won't even speak to me and that makes me worry. And my parents do have a lawyer waiting in the wings just for our protection. Im just so worried about bringing my baby into that kind of environment :(

np, so she knows your pregnant...and she wont speak to you?
if thats the case then maybe shes shocked about her son having a kid but if that is true about you thinking she would try and take your baby from you i would think thats really heartless because that is going to be her grandchild regardless and just the thought of her hating you enough to put you and your child in that situation thats wow and im pretty sure she knows that would make your bf pissed. try not to think so much about negative things, i was worried about bring mychild into the kind of situation and environment i was in, i dont live with my parent and the FOB just left me and acted like he didnt care but now im okay with it and i wouldnt change it for anything. im too attached to him lol :)

Hey elizabeth, im shea(15) single mom to Alysha(7 weeks).
Don't worry, you and your boyfriend will be great parents, he sounds like he's really there for you and wont leave. Soon you'll have your LO in your arms and no1 can take them away without a good reason, and from the sounds of it they dont have one.

congrats on the pregnancy, good luck and you came to the right place for support, these girls are amazing:).

I dont think we will leave but i have to worry. Im tryin not to but the child means more to me than anything. And im commend you for being so strong. Ive always been on independant person but im scared of him leaving me. Alot of bigs changes. But his mom is really controlling and shes a lil off her rocker. My mom doesnt trust her at all. That tells me alot because my mom could find the good in satan lol His sister was against at first but she heard me out and now shes excited. I just wish his mom would let me talk to her so i could explain to her that she doesn't want to have to explain all this to a 5 year old later in life n that together we can make sure baby has a wonderful foundation!!


Gosh im so glad i found this place!!

Welcome Elizabeth. I'm Cheyenne(16). Congrats on your pregnancy!!
I'm really sorry that you have to deal with her. She sounds pretty heartless. I'm really glad that your parents are going to help you out if needed.
I wouldn't worry to much. She can try and prove that your not going to be a good mother all she wants but they have to do checks and come to your house and stuff like that and she can't lie about that. And I'm almost one hundred percent sure she could loose her job plus get in a lot of trouble for abusing her powers as a social worker and for slandering you, especially if they find out that she had no initial basis for her complaint.
Hope everything works out good!
