@runaway mommy,
will you be 16 before the birth?

(in a lot of states 16 makes a large difference towards independence, I am not familiar with Michigan)

I think there is a strong possibility that this member is having you all on. Can someone describe a plausible scenario in which a 15-year-old unaway has internet access?


Any public library.

Any person in an internet cafe willing to let someone borrow their computer for a moment to ask for help.

I'm curious mommy, why would adoption be against your beliefs?

Many of us are adopted, or have adopted children ourselves.

Are you against adoption in general, or just in your case? Do you feel you can give your baby everything he needs after he's born?

I'm not at all saying that's what you should do, but if you were to choose that option, he doesn't make you a bad, uncaring person.

If you are afraid of being alone when you go into labor, get a cheap prepaid phone with some minutes, to call someone like your boyfried and his mother.

Are you living at his mothers house?

How old is your boyfriend?

This seems to be the more active of the two topics, so to consolidate I'll move my posts over here:

I just saw your other thread, plenty of good advice there. What I agree with the most is to find a Planned Parenthood near you and go from there.

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

On the right side of the homepage there is a "find a health center" search box so you can find one near you.

thank u so much. but what exactly will they do? i dont want to get rid of y baby. i want to have it. what they gone help me deliver?

They will help with exactly the things you are asking about here. They will find you local resources and advise you.

Remember, they're called "Planned Parenthood." They are about providing options to people who otherwise would have fewer options. If you have decided that you want to have the baby and that's that, they will help you figure out how to best do that. They're absolutely not just about abortion.

I really think that's your best bet right now.

I was a bit scared too when we had our first baby (and i'm the man!). what helped me most was attending prenatal classes with my partner where we could discuss what was likely to happen. I do think you should contact the planned parenthood people and ask for support. Its pretty important that you develop a good support network. Even if its just being able to talk to someone or ask a question.
Have you had any morning sickness, at 4 months you should be nearly over that now.
