I just wanted to ask for advice about being a mum, it's my first time being pregnant.

I keep crying because I know it's going to be hard. I told the guy I'm pregnant and he didn't say anything, so I'm struggling to come to terms with it as my emotional are running up and down. I'm in the early stages of the pregnancy.

I’m sorry to hear this. Your hormones will be going nuts now as your body starts to change. Do you have family or friends to talk to? Face to face is always best. Or speak to your midwife or GP.

You need people around to help you with this. First with the pregnancy, and then with looking after your baby.

Have an honest conversation with the father and find out where you stand.

There is also a lot of help available on the NHS.
