19 And Pregnant

I don't know if I should consider myself a teen mom, when I will be 20 when my son is born.
I am currently 23 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and he is constantly moving around and being very hyper.
Although I did have a scare a few days ago because he suddenly barely was kicking, but read online that it was normal and how babies have their lazy days too.

I've been trying to prepare but I still find it surreal to think I am going to be a mother. It seems like yesterday I was still in highschool, I was still partying and acting immature. I wonder when my son will arrive if I will naturally know what to do, I have been reading books and things online trying to make sure I will have a good idea. I am currently with my boyfriend who is the father, we have our own basement suite and I'm getting my N drivers license in a week. I am also planning to go to college for Office Administration courses. I hope I can do the best I can, if there's anyone out there with tips on how to save money better with groceries or know any good sites for baby things please comment below!

EXTREME COUPONING!!!!!!!, helps so much save so much and get free stuff! or go into welfare for food stamps but even if you have that still use coupons lol even cheaper!
-soon to be mami at age 20 can't wait!

I founf out a few days ago .. I was pregnant I am19.

I am 19 with a one-month old baby boy. I had a lot of scares with my pregnany but he turned out to be perfectly healthy. I started freaking out towards the end, wondering if i would know what to do and when to do it, and if i would be able to handle the responsibility of another persons life, and i am happy to say it will just come naturally. I plan on going to college in the fall of this year. I know it will be very hard and stressfull, but it will be worth it in the end. I like to get everything for my son at Once Upon a Child. They have everything you need for super low prices, and they also have maternity clothes! As for cheaper groceries...i still havent figured that one out myself..sorry :(

Hello,I, believe that you can do what ever you want to accomplish ,its not going to be easy you need to be strong fight for your dreams, there will be roll a coaster of emotions, and you must work around that with school, like how to separate feelings from studies or on going situations that just have to happen for some sort of reason. Will deals for food, Sunday paper has cut out coupons and the Burlington coat factory has some awesome cribs and matching set's for low prices,I also like Wall-mart for baby clothes maybe other needs and dollar tree has baby socks 3 in a pack for $1plus tax.I hope you find this some what helpful.
