I am 16 and 6 weeks pregnant.

I am 16 and I'm six weeks pregnant. My family knows that I'm pregnant but my father is angry with me. He always said to me that he was expecting many things of me and he wanted me to be educated but he has lost his trust in me. I want to go to school too and I told my family that but they refused to keep my baby so I don't know what to do.

Editor's Comment

It is difficult to cope with a baby when you are still in full time education, and at 16 I think family support is important. There are some educational units that support teenagers with babies, and there are also creche and nursery facilities that would allow you to still attend lessons while your baby is cared for. It would be worth exploring these options while you are thinking about your decision.
