Hi Jenna! I'm also 20 years old and 24 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I recently moved across the Country and my husband and I both left school because we felt it was what God wanted for us. Shortly after moving, we found out the big news. I decided to stay home while my husband worked and I found that it made me more depressed and Angry than actually enjoying my journey. I'd recommend hobbies. Painting is something that takes my mind off of a lot of things, and better will always come. Stay positive. Enjoy being a mommy :)

Thats the thing I dont even enjoy my hobbies anymore, I I used to paint, draw, play the cello and go hicking but I dont anymore, yesterday for the first time I tried to go kayak to see if I felt better and thats what I made my hubby believe but the thing is I feel just the same, the doctor gave me anti depression pills but I havent take them because I dont wanna give up.

I was really sad at thr beginning of this pregnancy, even though i wanted the baby. Around 12-14 weeks, at the same tims the morning sickness got better , i started to feel better. hang in there. I think the hormones in early pregnancy mess with our heads. Try to find someone to talk to - mom, sister, girlfriend.

When we found out I was pregnant my husband had just lost his job. We had a 2 year old and even though we wanted the baby. I could not enjoy it. I felt like an abortion was going to be the way. Then I realized how excited my husband was. I have had severe depression since the age of 8. I am unable to take medication because my body rejects it. In a very harsh way. I still have a hard time enjoying my pregnancy or about the baby. But I'm 31 weeks down. She will be here before I know it and everything will work out. It took my husband 7 months to find a job. Everything is finally coming together. Don't give up, I know so much easier said then done. When it is time everything will fall into place. Just need patience and an open heart.

I feel like if you do it you will regret it. Think of my situation. I am 23 and I have a 2-year-old and his father is not in his life. I am now 8 month pregnant and i lost my job about 3 months ago. I was only unemployed for six weeks but I got a job another job. But chrck this out, my fiancé is in a halfway house so technically, I am doing this alone. I was scared when I first found out I was pregnant but prior to this pregnancy, I had a miscarrage early on and I was devistated. Needless to say, I advise you not to do something you will regret. Jobs will come and go. Somebody will hire you, you have plenty of time before you strat to show! Plus be thankful that you have your husband's support thorough all this...wish i had mine.
