Congratulations! I know it’s maybe overwhelming, but assuming you want children, you’ll make a way to make this all work out. You’ll be very early along, so the dress may not even be an issue, and you have so much to look forward to! Try to breathe and take it one day at a time!

I just found out a few days ago, and I am six weeks along. I am a senior in college, and I am also totally freaking out, and posting under a secret name. But I haven’t decided what I am going to do yet. I am supposed to go to grad school next year. It’s really stressful.

I’ve mostly been trying to keep busy, find things to eat that don’t make me sick and relax. 

Have you told your FI?

Also, I was on NuvaRing, and my BC failed after I was on meds for Bronchitis.

It’ll be ok! Chances are really good your dress wont need let out, at 4 months you generally just look/feel a little bloated. The baby is still really really small at that time. A new house is good! And you can still go to school at least through the next 9 months (because pregnancy is actually about 10 months long), and then go from there! Depending on your school, you may be able to take a short break and then go back!

Children are a blessing, it will be ok!!!

I’m sorry that it happened unexpectedly.  I’m sure that things will work out for you though!

Have you watched the MTV show Teen Mom? One of the girls on the show, Farrah, is a single teen mom who is attending culinary school and working at a restaurant while caring for her baby. Just goes to show you that it is possible to still follow your dreams 🙂 If Farrah can do it, so can you!

Oh congratulations!!  Sorry it’s unexpected!  Been there, done that X 2 !!  1st time-married 4 months, didn’t have 2 nickles to rub together.  2nd time only 8 months after the first baby was born.  Fertile Myrtle here, hee hee.  My boss at the time (who I disliked) helped me down the stairs-cause I was a Basket-case, not knowing how we were going to afford to feed and cloth yet ANOTHER baby -(Birth Control fail #2!!)  It may not be easy-but it works out- SO you might as well ENJOY the addition to the family.  I wish in retrospect I had.  It would have been nice to have been excited-instead of panicked-because being stressed and panicked didn’t change anything _LOL!!

I’m sorry you are going through so much right now but maybe its just meant to be.  Try to keep calm and have some conversations with your Fiance and your Dr.

 Congrats! Don’t worry since this is your first pregnancy, you more then likely wont be showing until wayyy after 4 months. (I still wore my jeans until I was 6 months in my first pregnancy!) I also went to school up until the day I was admitted into the hospital. Everything works out in its own unique way. Hang in there! Its all good =)

Oh bless your heart! I know things are scary right now, but on the flip side, there are so many absolute blessings in your life right now! A soon-to-be husband, a home and a baby!

Of course, it’s not what you’d planned, and that always shakes us up. But thank goodness you have your Fiance to support you. Have you told your FI? What is he saying?

I am sorry to hear that.  Many people in worse situations have made it work, so you can too.  Hugs and prayers!
