Welcoming another baby this summer
December 7, 2011 7:10am CST
Last night my husband, myself, and my husbands cousin found out that my husbands 19 year old sister I'd pregnant. We where sure if she was when she old us because she is know for lying and making things up. We where hopin it wasn't a lie but the truth. None of are unhappy or happy for her. Reason behind that is the boyfriend is kid of a jerk. She told me and my husbands cousin that he wanted her to have an abortion. Our whole is strongly against it and I'm orpine that she told him no and stood up for what she believes in. We are kind of up set that everyone else knee and didn't tell up but at least we heard it from her. She is so scared buy excited to be having a baby. I'm not sure if she wants to keep the baby or give him or her up for adoption. But knowing her and herside of the family shell keep him in her. She has know since the being of nov. She is almost through her first trimester. I'm amazed she made it this far with out knowing. She is between 13 1/2 week to 16 1/2. It's cool my daughter will have a little cousin. As a big sister to her now. I just told her congrulations and even though I'm 9 hours away if she needs to talk about babies, being pregnant, or just a shoulder to lean on I'm her for her. I don't like her and we don't get along but as the saying goes it takes a village to raise a child. She hasn't told her dad yet out of fear. We all know he will flip his lid and probably disown her for being pregnant and not married. She is sure that the father o her child will not stick around he and her haven't seen each other much in the last 2 months. She hops he'll turn around and be there like he says he will be. I have a feelin he won't I he isn't there now helping take care of herself then he probably won't be around once the baby is born. I hope her having a baby makes her a better person. She is so immature at her age causing drama for her own attention. I hope a small person will change her Nd make her more responsible adult. I told her babies change everything froma how your relationship works to your time. But it's worth it to have that cute little baby keep you up all hours of the day and keeping you on your toes. My poor husband he is lost for words. He never wanted his sister to have a child because others might in the family might raise it and not herself. But he a made a good choice last night to not say anything to his sister till he thought about it more. He doesn't want to Hirt her feeling which she asked me what he thought. I told her he is unsure of what to say at the moment and doesn't want to cause drama or hurt a pregnant women's feelings.

He isn't a jerk for not wanting a baby. Butr it isn't up to him. It is up to her. I agree if the first thought is abortion, then I don't see him being there for her or the baby. Time will tell if she raises the kid herself or have others raise the child.

Ok. I agree All women should know once he says " Get and Abortion" that the guy isn't and Never will be a dad. She is on her own. She maybe able to get child support but nothing else. Isn't this the then 18 year old who thought sugar was the cutest baby? Now she is having one of her own.

Your husband's 19 year old daughter is pregnant so that is surprising news. In my last pregnancy I had a scan thinking I was 12 weeks but I was in fact 13 weeks pregnant. So I know exactly what that stage of pregnancy she is and what it is like. It is a shame her boyfriend isn't a nice person. I hope that he stops wanting an abortion for her and becomes a decent dad. I also hope that the 19 year old becomes a loving and responsible mom. I have watched a program called 16 and Pregnant. These teens do grow up a lot once they become parents. A young baby needs lots of loving care around the clock day and night. I suggest lots of family support in her first week of being a mom and work out a schedule for her. I know that giving birth can be very tiring and painful. It is possible to continue education after having a baby. I wish the 19 year old and her baby a happy future.
