Book in with your doctor chick, they will get the ball rolling for midwife appointments and answer any questions u have. They can also tell you about any groups and classes available (In my area they do groups for young pregnant/mums at the children's centre). It's natural to be scared I'm almost 30 and we were trying for our 2nd n I still $hit myself when I found out lol! Congratulations x

Who cares what others think. I was 22 when I had my first and my 2nd scan was ruined by a rude sonographer who looked down her nose at us. Stuff them if they don't like it it's ur body and ur baby and ur life xx just enjoy ur pregnancy don't let anyone get u down x

thank you, and can i ask another question; is it normal to have back and belly pains so early on? and i hate rude people but as long as i have the baby's dad, and his family and also my family behind me then it dont bother me x

hi lovely, hope your ok and try not to panick, like the other ladies have said there are special groups and classes that help younger mums get all the help you need and to make pregnancy and birth a positive experience for you, also you will get help with affording things like milk formula and healthy foods too should you need it. Be confident and take no notice of other people there are some that are very judgmental but its none of their business and im sure you will be a fab mummy, i hope you have a supportive partner and family as it makes all the difference and will help with your confidence too. Aches and pains are normal, try to take it easy and a nice warm bath will help too not too hot mind just comfortable. You take care x
