I just wanted to say that if you are
pregnant and you dont know what to do, ask only yourself! This is absolutely
your decision and no one else can make it for you. This is your body and your
baby. I am 15 years old and very mature for my age. I believe I am mentally and
physically ready for a baby
. but not financially ($$). When I was pregnant,
I was so very happy and overwhelmed. Although I felt extremely special and I knew
I had a little baby in my tummy, I had an abortion my 10th week of pregnancy.
I knew it would be best for my boyfriend and our family. My boyfriend and I wanted
to keep the baby, but our parents didn't.
Now I cry all the time thinking
about my baby and wishing I would have kept it. I regret terminating my pregnancy.
I should have made sure that I wanted to do that, because I wish I had a second
chance to explain to our parents that we want to keep the baby. My advice to you
is : Make sure whatever you decide is Your decision. Dont let anyone make
it for you. Although most of the responsibility will be on your parents and you
and your boyfriend will struggle, make sure you do what you wanna do. Angel
