First time mum

I'm 18 and i am 5 + 2 weeks pregnant with my first baby. i'm quite scared bt at the same time im quite excited.My baby is due the end of august. and it seems a loooong time to the birth. I am going to the doctor next week. and cant wit for my first MW appt. I ma looking forward to chatting with other young mums. i want to tell people but i am frightened of their reactions as i am still at college.


  • hello, im the same as you im half way through a university course. im 21 and 10 weeks im due either 24 or 25 off july got my first midwife appt on 9th jan and my scan on the 11th jan really cant wait.
  • congratulations lil_bump!a summer baby will be lovely. dont worry about other people, the worst thing u can do is think of anyone but yourself now. sod other people and what they think and enjoy your pregnancy!
    im 21 and at uni and have had lots of support from tutors,family andpartner. u will be off from college in the hardest part of pregnancy so u can concentrate on ur studies still. unlike me, i did all my essays at home and missed lectures as baby was due early dec.
    do it all for yourself and your baby, and good luck!
