Don't worry.. I'm 23 years old, $16,000 in debt.. and unemployed. I'm also 7 1/2 months pregnant. Are you in the US? because if you are, there are government programs that can help you financially and medically. I would either talk to your doctor about what programs are available to you, or call your local a__sistance (welfare) office. I'm currently on medicaid.. they pay for all of my medical bills, and WIC which helps pay for some of my food. I am also applying for cash a__sistance since I don't see anyone hiring someone who is 7 1/2 months pregnant, and jobs are hard to come by in my area (everyone is laying off and factories are shutting down). Don't get an abortion if you want to keep the baby. You will regret it for the rest of your life. Even with your current financial situation, things will get better, and don't be ashamed of getting government help.. that's why we've paid taxes... might as well get some of that back since you really need it. Also factor in the child support, and talk to your friends and family and see if they have anything that they don't use anymore that you could use. I lucked out, my sister had a baby girl a year and a half ago... and now I get all her hand-me-downs... I have hardly anything to buy. And since I'm b___stfeeding I won't have to buy formula. So all I'll really have to worry about are diapers, wipes, bath stuff.. etc... So anyway, I think you can do it, and your baby will be sooooooo worth it.
