Im 17 yrs old and im roughly 3/4 weeks pregnant, my boyfriend is 22 and is very supportive. I recently told my mum and she thinks if i keep the baby im ruining my life! The thought of getting rid of my baby kills me, and i dont think i could go through with an abortion or give it up for adoption! Yesterday i decided to keep my baby, but then my mum said i couldnt live in the house anymore, WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?!?!?!?!?!

I guess you will find out eactly how supportive the oyfriend is. Tell him you are moving in. If that won't work, you may have to reevaluate. Good luck!

Wow, Emma you are in a tough one! You said your mum, are you not from the US? Ok, first I want to thank you for choosing life for your baby. You are already protecting him or her :) Now, you are just looking for the support you will need to have your baby and provide for your baby. *First, it's important to know where you live. In the US, in some states 17 year olds are still considered minors. There are some states in which you would be considered an adult. If you are in a state where you are considered an adult that you can move in with your boyfriend and began researching all your options, just in case that doesn't work out. You could also stay with your mum until you are 18 and then move. Also, I am in the process of adopting and I have met many great adoptive parents. BUT, if you know that you want to raise your baby than I understand. Personally, I just feel that if the child had the choice of abortion or adoption, they would choose life, even if it met adoption. You may want to get online to see what's out there for you as far as support. Hopefully, some others, will post, who are going through what you are and they can give you some first hand advice. Wish you Well!

First of all, if your boyfriend is 22 he should be responsible to have you move in and take care of both you and your baby. If he does not want to do that then you should have been more careful about having unprotected s_x.
