Any other teenagers?

I am only 16 years old, but I'm in love with my daughter already. & if anyone says I'm not going to support her, or be a good mom, etc.. You don't need to comment on this post.. I don't have any type of support other than people supporting me to get an abortion.. I cry myself to sleep all the time because of it... I don't talk to either one of my brothers due to the fact they both wanted me to give her up. & I said no. I am supporting my daughter, I'm currently not in school anymore because every single time I stress myself out I bleed, & I have had liver problems since I was 8 years old.. I have depression, bipolar disorder, & anxiety, I was diagnosed by the time I got to elementary due to growing up in a house full of  different types of abuse.. So I need to have some type of friend or anything.. Please comment if you deal with the same or have been in that sort of situation before..

I'm 22 and I guess have kinda been in a situation like that. I was 14yrs old when I got preggo with my 1st child and when I was 7 months with her my dad and his mom said I should get an abortion or give her up but I didn't I had her 2 months after I turned 15. Then got preggo with my other daughter at 15 and had her when I turned 16.

I'm 28w+5d preggo with my 3rd child and being 22 I still get negative attitude from a lot of my family. I have gotten looked at like a disappointment since I got preggo with my 1st child. I think there is a cple family members that are happy for me. I think you will be a great mom. My kids are my world and I wouldn't change that for nothing. Don't let them put u down hun prove to them that they are wrong. :) good luck

Congratulations on the baby! You'll be a great mommy. I'm only 21 and I was pressured to abort too but I refused.

But I gotta ask... Don't you feel too young? I see 11 year olds pregnant and I feel like they have no business.
