Im scared yet excited!!!!!???

My best friend of all time is having a baby soon. She 17. And so am I. Well, the father of course left and her parents well thats a different story. So, because of this lack of support she asked me to be there to help her with the birth of her baby. Immedialy I agreed too, but that time is getting closer. She's about 35 weeks now. Im soooooo nervous about this. Im probably going to cry cause, I cant stand seeing people in pain. Shes the strong one, and Im the big baby, lol. But, I got to be there for her since no one else will. I need tips on how to deal with focusing on her comfort and not my parionod ***, lol.

Thx!!!

    You're a good friend. Your friend is very lucky to have you.

    You're going to do fine. The pain is something that women have been managing for centuries, and they have pain relief options in the event that your friend cannot handle it.

    You just be there for her, and tell her jokes and make her smile. You also be her voice in the event that she can't talk at some point. You can be the advocator of her birth plan if she can't do it herself.

    You'll never have someone love you as much as she will after this. You'll keep it together fine. Watch.

    well i've definetely been there; my best friend since second grade had a baby at age 14. Me and my family only found out 1 month before she was due, so it was definetely hard. She also comes from a very low-income family, and her parents are working all the time, so me and my mom tried our hardest to comfort her.

    The best thing to do is take her out and do things that came make her forget about all the pain. For example, take her out shopping (if shes healthy enough), go to the movies, ect.

    At first (being a 14 year old girl) I was a little embarrassed to be seen at the mall with a pregnant 14 year old. But really these small things helped her feel a lot less "alone".

    For the actual birth of her baby, just hold her hand and think about how happy she will be once the babys OUT. haha. i unfortuantely wasn't able to witness my friends birth, so i don't personally know what it's like, but try to think about happy times you guys have spent together and don't focus on her pain.

    Is she opting for pain meds? If she is, chances are she may not be in as much pain as you think. I've had my kids but my only chance to be in the delivery room wth someone else was with my sister. Your job is going to be a big supporter for your friend. I would suggest to pack things to keep you both occupied while you wait for the big moment (magazines-you can read her the articles, cards, music for you both to listen to). She's going to need you to hold her hand as well and be there for her. I'm sure she's quite nervous about the upcoming joyous time. When it's time for her to push the baby out you'll be a big help by counting her thru and just remind her she's doing great. I wish you and your friend a lot of luck with this upcoming delivery. Btw, your a great friend for being there for her.

    severe college extremely isn't what human beings make it sound like. "Oh that's the perfect 4 years of your existence" "sex sex sex" "The freshman screwed the health midsection instructor" Blah. blah. blah. What extremely counts is what takes position after severe college- I mean with any luck college persay. you would possibly want to be acquaintances with whoever you want, stay round who you want, that's you and basically you that would want to get your self into difficulty with the juniors and seniors. If their making you uncomfortable, then get rid of your self from the scene. Now, being short, i be conscious of how that is, i'm 4'10- yet their are so a lot more advantageous issues that complicated to get round in existence except walking through the school halls so i'd not rigidity about excellent- their might want to be truly midgets searching on how enormous your community and college is. Make your perfect, do what you want, be who you want to be, and maximum seriously do not screw it up. regardless of if their no longer the perfect years there the most important, because extremely that's what preps you for authentic existence and for your destiny.
