I'm 19 an 6 weeks pregnant it wasn't planned but me and parter are happy mst of the time i'm really excited about it picking names looking at baby clothes but every now and then i get really panicked and wonder if i'm making the right decision by having a baby at my age. Maybe it's just nerves but any advice would be appreciated
It's perfectly natural to feel panicked!! I think it's something all pregnant women feel to be honest - will I cope, will I know what to do, what will the future hold, etc - it doesn't matter how old you are! Plus your hormones are going crazy and it's such a big change to get used to. But you have months to plan and get ready, and when the baby's here, you soon get into the swing of things and learn to trust your instincts. So please try not to panic. Keep talking to your partner, he can probably relate, and hopefully you are getting plenty of support from your family. Community midwives are full of advice and support too, so do talk to them too! Best of luck for a happy and healthy pregnancy x
Thank you for the advice, it's just nice to know i'm nt the only one
Hi, I was 20 when I fell pregnant with my first child, she wasn't planned and I was terrified. I'm now 30 and pregnant with my 3rd and I've still had my panicky moments eek will I cope etc!!! Your partner is on board and thats a huge plus, talk to him and you can put each others minds at ease, you'll find in pregnancies you'll each have different worries and concerns but will be able to help each other loads, thats certainly what I found with my partner. Enjoy your pregnancy and never be scared to ask for help and advice, we all need it from time to time no matter how old or experienced we are and once your baby is here you'll soon find your flow, good luck and enjoy xx
Having a baby is hard work but you sound very mature. There will be good days and bads but i tell you what the good days out weigh the bad by miles. Also although having a baby is a massive step, dont ever think that its the end of your life because it may just be the making of you. If it was not for having my son i would never have went to university, seeked out and GOT my dream job , i am so thankful he came when he did. Good luck through your pregnancy, stay postive and take each day as it comes.
