First of all take a deep breath....No one can tell you what you and your boyfriend should do. The morning after pill that you mentioned works only a few days after having sex so you would not be a candidate for it. Just because you are pregnant does not mean you have to get married. Just because you are pregnant does not mean you have to quit your jobs. Surprises happen, my second son was a big surprise to the point where he might have been an immaculate conception. My situation was different but everything turned out okay...I am one to believe that God has a higher plan for us and we should take it as it comes.

Since you are pregnant, you need to take care of yourself as you take the time to make a decision about what to do. Go to a store and pick up some prenatal vitamins (the over the counter ones are just as good as the doctor's prescription). Get plenty of rest because, either way, the first trimester can be difficult. Try to worry less about everything else. Take some time to listen to what your heart is telling you. Your body naturally protects the baby...the baby gets the nutrients it needs first, taking it from your body's stores if necessary and is very well protected inside your uterus. You don't need to worry about falling wrong...I fell down some stairs in my first pregnancy at five and half months and only ended up with a nasty rug burn. Until you make your decision, don't drink alcohol and try to eat better. (Small more frequent meals often helps the morning sickness.) Sleeping on your belly won't hurt the baby at this point and I doubt that it would be very comfortable as you get further into pregnancy.

I'm currently pregnant with my third. I went through all those worries with the first, less with the second, and even less with the third. Pregnancy is an amazing thing - sometimes wonderful, sometimes not. Don't be scared of pregnancy - your body knows what to do and may seem so foreign to you at times but as long as you do your best, you, your boyfriend, and the baby will be fine.

So take a breath, listen to your heart, and know you will be okay!

Hi Yellabonez......pregnancy, especially the first time around, is always scary. We don't know what to expect, we've never been through it, so naturally it has us on an emotional roller coaster. Also, it doesn't seem like your boyfriend is too thrilled at this point......and that alone is causing added stress because the 1 person that you need support from isn't offering very much at all.

The emotions you are going through are very normal. Pregnancy in itself is very emotional. Our hormones are all out of whack, our body is changing, and the thought of childbirth can be horrific. I remember feeling all of this when I was pregnant with my first. But, after she was born........those feelings went away and I fell in love. I knew I was going to love my baby, but I had no idea how powerful unconditional love was.

My kids are now 13 and 8 years old. I'm 32....so I'm not much older than you are. I was also a smoker when I got pregnant with my kids. With my 1st child, smoking literally made me sick, so it was easy to quit. But, with my 2nd, I tried so hard to quit, but I never did fully kick the habit. Luckily, my son was born healthy. He was actually over 9lbs.....which isn't bad considering I smoked. He was smaller than my first, but still quite large for a baby born to a smoking mother. Now, I'm not condoning smoking pregnant or not. I actually felt guilty while I was pregnant. So, if you could quit, obviously I would recommend that. If you cannot quit, then at least cut back. Anything is better than nothing.

So, basically you need to make some decisions. Whether or not to continue on with the pregnancy, nobody can tell you what to do. I know at this point you are confused as to what you should do.

Best wishes to you. Keep us posted.
