View Full Version : Am I allowed to enjoy my pregnancy?

My family all thinks I am too young to have a baby. They are angry and disappointed in me. I know this isnīt the ideal time for me to have a baby, but I just want to make the best out of ths situation. I understand their feelings, but do I have to feel the same way to? I mean I understand how much my life is going to change and the big things I am going to lose out on, but being miserable surely wonīt help anything will it?

Cupcakesummer no you don't have to feel the same way your family does. I was in your shoes when I was pregnant. My dad was so pissed off at me for getting pregnant. He said that he would rather I give it up for adoption then ruin my life. Well let me tell you becoming a mom has been the best thing to happen to me. My son brings a smile to my face everyday. I too also knew everything I was giving up when I decided I was keeping my son, but the way I looked at it I was gaining so much more. Its great that you think positive. As long as you can support your baby and yourself enjoy it. And just wait until you have your baby you will be overwhelmed with happiness and joy with a mixture of lack of sleep, but it is the most rewarding experience in life.

I went through the same thing with my son. I was a senior in high school and was always really good in school so it came to a surprise to everyone. People would say that I "ruined my life" which is a incredibly hurtful thing to say but people say it. Nevertheless, I let it consume me and my thoughts. It left me depressed and hopeless. It was to the point that I didn't even feel comfortable having a baby shower...and so I didn't. It was the worse experience ever. My advice: ignore it and live your life, like you said it's no point in crying over spilled milk!

Don't think of what they say it will change when they see your tummy gets bigger. Think of positive happy thoughts for the baby. Your parents though they are disappointed at the moment won't last long no parents can't bear to see their children left alone.
