I'm 15 right now and I am almost 4 months pregnant I will be 16 when I have my baby, but my parents already tried to make me have an abortion. The day I told mom she was like "your gonna have an abortion" so she went to the store and got 2 pregnancy tests. i didnt want to have an abortion at all so I simply dipped the pregnancy test in the toilet water and it came up negative. Well my best friend looked up on the internet and it said its illegal here in Arkansas to get an abortion if you are 12 weeks pregnant. Noe i'm glad that I did what I did but now I have to tell them and i'm scared they can make me give up my baby for adoption against my will. can they do that if im only 16?? plz answer soon.... THANKS!!

I give you a lot of credit for choosing life for your baby. Even going against your mothers will of getting an abortion, it shows your a strong girl. No one can force you to get an abortion, they might be able to set an appointment, but they can't force you to get on the table and go through with the procedure. You parents also can't make you put your baby up for adoption because YOUR the one who needs to sign the papers for everything. Sometimes parents over react out of anger. Once your baby starts kicking and growing bigger in your belly, by that time your parents will have accepted that your keeping it. When your baby is born, everything will change. Remind your parents that this baby is their blood and a part of your family. They'll be GRANDPARENTS!!! We all know how grandparents are so loving and caring. I hope your alright, it was clever what you did with your pregnancy test hehe. I really hope things work out for you, I'm soo very happy that you chose life for your precious baby. You can never create another like him/her ever again. She/he is truly unique and growing right now in your belly for a reason. Good luck hun, I'll be thinking about ya, keep me updated on everything. Your baby's heart is beating RIGHT NOW, isn't it amazing to know your growing a human being right now?????

Thank you so much ive been looking all over the internet to try and find an answer to that question b/c when i found out i was pregnant the first time me and my friend stayed up for hours to talk about everything and how to keep my parents from getting so upset but out of all the things we thought about we never even thought about them wanting me to have an abortion! Now all I needed was to know if they could make me give my baby up for adoption. I'm very happy to have my baby growing inside of me and now that i know that i feel so much stronger i just recently went through a break up with a guy that wanted to be here for me and now he just up and left me but im alright now. When things bring me down i just think about my baby and I get really excited. I have alot of supportive friends they are awsome. As for the babys daddy i know exactly who he is and he knows im pregnant but he seems to have no intentions to help me out at all. and i have alot more to say but if you have email or yahoo maybe you can give me them and i will be happy to keep you updated and tell you more! you dont know how much it means to me that you answerd me so fast thank you so much!!

I'm so glad you have supportive friends. I pretty much lost my friends when I got pregnant, we still keep in touch but I don't hang out with them. I guess coming on this forum and posting my experiences and helping other girls out really makes me feel good because when I was pregnant, not many people were there to help me. Just my mom and bf...now fiance'. My e-mail is [email protected] so if you ever have any pregnancy questions and/or just need someone to keep your hopes up, e-mail me!! I know how stressful pregnancy is. So many hormones haha. When I was almost 3 months pregnant, I had my first doctors appointment and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat. Just knowing that a tiny little person was growing inside me brought so much happiness and joy to my own heart. My son will be ONE YEAR OLD this month. Time flies by sooo fast!! Hugs to you and your BABY hehe!!!

they can also choose not to help pay for anything for the baby, they dont have to babysit or buy food diapers, it hard. to do it on ur own. but good luck and think about the baby first and not ur needs

Good luck, I had my daughter at 16. She was a blessing. Her father took off, terminated his rights(my choice). I am now 24, married and pregnant w/#4. I wish you both the best!!
