Can anyone give me some advice?

Okay so I just found out I was pregnant I haven't been to the doctor yet I took 2 tests this morning they both said positive I haven't told anyone, I'm kinda freaking out. I'm 18 I'm a senior in high school (I'm not looking for judgement I know it's my fault and I made the decision to dodo it took the chance and I don't need any criticism) I have no idea how to handle this and I just need some advice on what I should do next.

I was in a similar situation to yours I was a junior when I got pregnant and had my son my senior year(2015). I was so terrified about telling anyone! When I told my boyfriend (now husband) we were both just scared! My husband is 3 years older than me so he had a stable job, but he lived with his brother and wasn't independent at all. Anyways I am not going to say anything was easy because nothing truly was. Everything took a lot of effort and courage to accomplish, thankfully my mom was very understanding of my situation and my dad eventually came around and loves his grandson! I had to cut out all the negative comments and people from my life and stick to the positive, keep in mind you are not the first or the last girl to get pregnant at a young age and don't let anyone tell you, you can not do it because I am sure you can! What I can tell you is that I wouldn't change my son or my experience for anything in the world!

One of the biggest things for me right now is the dad we dated for 5 months then in May he broke up with me because he's going to college in another state we hooked up in July and he left for college last week. I don't know how I can tell him, he's there on a football scholarship and this could mess up alot of stuff.

I wouldn't say mess up a lot of stuff, a baby can be a very big blessing as well! I wasn't as young as you are now but I was very young with my first child and I had only dated my bf, now husband for 6 months when we got pregnant and he already had another child with another woman that was born a few months before. I would say maybe talk to someone you trust first and ultimately decide what you want to do first. But I think to be fair regardless you should let the father know.

I plan on telling him. I don't know how. I'm scared to death of what's going to happen. I'm keeping first off. But as far as anything else is concerned I have no idea.

You'll be ok :) i had my first when i was 16. :/ It's scary, and tiring but you'll be alright. :) You should also get started on your prenatal care as soon as possible aswell, and the college boyfriend he should continue his school and not let the baby ruin it for him . It'll just be hard scheduling school with parenting but im sure your family, and his will be willing to help and baby sit. The baby shouldn't be looked at as a burden it's a blessing ^_^ you'll be alright . If i can do it being 16 so can you :) I'm now 24 with my second baby

Good luck with everything you'll be ok
