Default hey - i am new.

hey whats up. my name is mark i am 18 and i am expecting my son on July 17th.
Myself and the mother have been together for around 8 months now. We, i suppose, stupidly slept together on the second night of first semester of uni. This, being mid september, progressed to me asking her out and by the doctors estimations we concieved roughly around october/november.

It has all proved to be extremely surprising and somewhat of a shock to the system but i find that i have eventually came round to the idea that i am going to become a father... not even a friend or a dad - A FATHER.

I am very new to this, however seeing my girlfriends forum that she is active in, and i was just wondering how others may feel about becoming a young father.

was it too much ?
Worry ?
Joy?
Anger...?

thanks. mark

I can not profess that I know about being a teen father, but I can welcome you to the forum, If you read through some of the other teen dads posts and thread, you may answer them, and they will get an email notice of what you wrote and they may pop back in sooner.

Welcome.

hey dude I fully understand
I was 16 when I found out my girlfriends was expecting
my son Hayden was born on the 4th of Feb this year and once her was born everything got harder I'm not going to lie but now I look at him now 5 months old and he just smiles like all the time and all my hard work to keep food on the table and a roof over his head is worth it.

Welcome! I wish you the best. You seem to taking really good steps.

Quick irrelevant question:
Renton..Spotting.
Renton.
Trainspotting?
Sorry, a little ADD, just saw a connection to one of my favorite movies.

Welcome again!
