I am 17 and found out I'm pregnant. I had my first child at age 15 (please no hate) and my parents were very clear they were not supportive. Thankfully the father's parents were and they supported me through that pregnancy. I had a beautiful and healthy baby girl called Mya who is now 2. I am still with the father now and we are now expecting our second child.

When I told my parents I became pregnant (I told them 3 weeks ago - I'm currently 7 weeks pregnant) they told me that I have 2 months to leave the house. The father told me that I cannot move in with him because his parents are under a lot of stress (for reasons I can't disclose). I'm a full time Sixth Form student in my second year and I know I cannot handle a second child unless I want to drop out. I have nowhere to live and I cannot afford anywhere to go.

My parents said that if I do not have this baby I can stay living at home but I only have 2 months until the kick me out if I am still pregnant/not doing anything about terminating the pregnancy or going to put the baby up for adoption.

I do not know what to do and I really need some support as I don't want to give my life up if I know this child will mean that. Then again, I don't know if I have the heart to not raise/birth my baby.

Does anyone have any advice?

Sorry I have no advice, but it's such a sad situation you are in right now. I hope someone will be along soon to help.
