Hi there! I'm 21 and have a 5 month old daughter and she is the joy of my life. I too, was unexpectedly pregnant and I remember crying a lot when I found out, even though I'm lucky enough to be in a stable relationship. I remember ringing my parents and my dad answered the phone and I just said "go get mum!!!"
My dad was terribly upset because when I ring, I usually talk to him for ages (because he was dying at the time) so they both knew something was 'up'. I got mum on the phone and was sobbing away about my life being over. After I told her I was pregnant - she laughed and said "Oh God! I thought you were dying!!!"
And then she said to me, "your life isn't over - its just changed a bit. You can still achieve all that you want to, its just the way that you're going to do it will be different now".
So, I just thought I'd share those words of wisdom with you.
It can be really difficult to be expecting when you weren't expecting, especially when you're young, so if I were you, I'd find out about any local groups for young parents. I know that there are a few in my area and they've been really good.
If you're looking for a pregnancy book...Get yourself this book "Up the Duff" by Kaz Cooke. Its a pregnancy book that's absolutely hysterical and helped me when I was feeling blue because the way that she says things makes you feel like you're not the only person in the world who feels like you do right now. (because you're not). She's a very funny lady and the book has loads of helpful information on pregnancy and a common sense approach to it.
