I don’t want to be on my own..

Hello, I’m 18 years old and I’m 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I’ve been with my parter 8 months and we’ve had a up and down relationship, long story cut short he doesn’t want to keep this baby. He keeps saying it’s the wrong time and wait a couple years and it will be right but I’m the one in this situation now... I feel like I wouldn’t have no support from my mum, I would have to give up my life everything, I’m in 2 minds and I don’t know what to do

I was in the same boat as you 11 years ago i had no support or nothing i to was 18 now 11years im glad i kept the baby no one can help you make your mind up only you you would find ways to cope as a single mom

You have to do what's right for you I was 18 and thought my mum was gonna hit the roof. She did to start with but then she came around. You might find after the initial reaction you get more support than you think.

Everything might seem very difficult now but things would probably settle down if you do keep the baby. Definitely go with how your heart feels as you will have to live with either decision. I'm sure your mum would probably be there for you after the initial shock. Boyfriends often come and go so don't go for a termination just for his sake. Good luck

I was also 18. Best decision of my life. My daughter has shaped me into the person I am today. If your having and doubts don’t do it x

I was 18 when I fell pregnant with my little one and she was born when I was 19. I had concerns that I may not be old enough but honestly you will receive support. You will get visits from the health visitor and they provide so much support

Keeping my little girl is the best decision I have ever made and she is now 10 months old. Do what makes YOU happy, don’t worry about anyone else
