Hiya, I'm Alex. I'm 18 and I am 6 to 8 weeks pregnant. I am really nervous and have no idea what to expect. I know I am really young and hope none of you hold that against me, but i couldn't have an abortion. Could someone please help me and tell me what to expect throughout my pregnancy. I am really scared to tell my family although all my boyfriends family know and they are really supportive. thankyou xx

Hi Alex,

I'm 8weeks and 4 days and due on 2nd May. There's a thread for due May babies if you want to join in. I've found this site really helpful and it's nice to knowother women feel the same way as you do.

Your age is only a number chuck and you shouldn't let that bother you.

Hope to speak to you soon.

Katie xoxo

Hi Alex.

I was 19 with my 1st baby. On No 4 now at the age of 37, so that should tell you its not all bad!!

Its YOUR body and YOUR baby, sounds like you have a good BF and his family for support you. If you familt no now sooner than later it will give them time to get over it. But I'm sure you Mum will be with you every step of the way, after all its her Grandchild.

Hope it all goes well, I'm on due March thread so if you fancy a chat........

Hi Alex.

Congratulations, good to hear youve told your family aswell.

Nobody will hold your age against you, all that matters is that you want this baby and sure youl do your best when it comes to raising him/her. As for what to expect in pregnancy, look forward to morning sickness, a gassy bottom and leaky boobs! Seriously, everyone here is v friendly so if theres ever anything you want to ask or talk about just find a thread and join in (or start one yourself).
