My 15 year old teenage daughter is pregnant!
I'm hoping someone out there can give me some much needed advice over what to do as I am in melt down over the fact that I have just found out my 15 year old daughter is pregnant.
I don't know where I have gone so wrong as a parent, she has been a ticking time bomb for a couple of years now but this is a whole new ball game. Now there is another life involved. The father is a boy who she is at school with and about as much use as a chocolate tea pot by all accounts. I haven't spoken with his parents yet as I'm still coming to terms with the news myself.
I'm not sure what to do about it, we did a test when she finally came clean and she's 17 weeks! Which is awful, as it's way past the point of termination in my eyes, the baby is a baby at 17 weeks. I just want to curl up and die but I know it's down to me to sort this situation out. Her dad and I divorced 5 years ago so there's only me as he went to live in the states and barely see the kids.
I'm so upset, I have no idea what to do, I feel like everyone
will judge me and think I’m a terrible mother with a pregnant teen. I can’t make her get an abortion
at this stage as it would be far to traumatic, but having a baby now would ruin
her life, she's right in the middle of her GCSE's and I'm in my 50's and don't think I could take on a baby.
Please help I’m going crazy!!
