I M Depressed And Afraid

Colie - June 26

I'm 18 years old, 32 wks pregnant, and haven't been happy since I've found out. I was a senior in high school when I found out I was pregnant. I dealt with walking the school halls every day thinking and knowing people were looking at me differently. Friends tried to support me but I feel like I lost them all. I feel totally alone. My mother is trying to be supportive and give me advice. She had me at 19. But times have changed. My boyfriend of 3 years (father of the baby) is trying SO INCREDIBLEY hard to listen and understand whats going on with me and all I do is argue with him and push him away. I am so unhappy and I feel like I put on a different face for everyone I see and meet. I don't even know who I am anymore. I'm so lost in this pregnant body, and scared, and worried. Will I be a good mom? Can I still go to college? Can I work a job and be a mom and still be able to have free time to do "teenager" things? Will I be able to horsebackride anymore? (Horses are my passion and I LOVE to ride, haven't been able to since january and it kills me inside) Does anyone have some advice???????

Yes you can still go to college! I am 18, have a one month old daughter, starting my third semester of college in August, and going back to work this week or next! You can do it, I am!!! You will be able to ride horses again too after you have the baby, I love horses too! Don't let people tell you that you can not go to college because you had a baby. You can get a ton of financial help being a single mom, and you can even get your daycare paid for so you can go to college. There are all kinds of programs to help you! Your pregnancy will be over in 2 short months and you will have a beautiful baby that is so worth it! I have been there too, I know how you feel. I know how people look at you when you are young and pregnant, and what people tend to think. If you put your mind to it you can do it!

I totally agree. I am a total horse lover, they have been my pa__sion since I was very young. I have one horse, a Baskhir Curly....I am also 14 weeks pregnant and am still riding as much as I was before. I am also going to collage next semester. You can still do all the things you love, my baby is coming to the barn with me every day....Im sure it will be harder but dont worry at all, you can have kids AND go to collage and have horses at the same time, Im going to. AND Im a volunteer fire fighter, dont let anything get in your way, trust me it will all work out.

OK, you are 32 weeks, which means you are in the home stretch! If you lost friends, well, so be it. It's just something you have to accept and move on from. Yes, you can still earn yur education in whatever manner you want. It'll be hard, but it's hard for everyone. It'll just take you a little bit longer and will be a challenge for your time management skills! If your bf is good to you and is trying then just be patient and eventually you will stop yelling at him!
