firstly, congratulations, and i am truly sorry to hear of your miscarriage.
everyone who has negative comments should refrain from posting as you are not being helpful.
This young woman is acting responsibly asking about how to keep her baby healthy. It obviously shows maturity and courage to be able to ask for help.
I fell pregnant just before my 17th birthday, and also miscarried first before conceiving twin boys, sadly I lost one to twin to twin transfusion syndrome, but my beautiful boy is fine and a healthy 13yr old now!
To answer your question, start taking prenatal vitamins, or at least folic acid and iron to lessen risk of neural tube defects. Make sure you try to eat a balanced diet and exercise gently. see a doctor or antenatal clinic for check ups during pregnancy. Tell any close family your situation as support is invaluable. have faith in yourself and know that loving your child is the most important factor. Good luck and god bless

My advice...stop having unprotected/protected sex and act like a kid. You are too young to be playing adult games.

I'm in the same boat as kynlees mommy! I had my son at 19 and planned this baby now at 22. My husband and I love each other more each day and we are financially stable. You can beat the statistics. Just relax and take it a day at a time. Let your parents know if you have not already because yoy will need their support. Emotionally if nothing else! Congrats on your baby! They are a gift from God no matter the parents age :)

I am 23 and pregnant with my second baby.. I got pregnant at 18 and had my daughter at 19.. We were together for 4 years before I got pregnant with her at the young age of 18 and we are STILL married and STILL in love and this baby was completely planned! So she has no clue what she is talking about! Sure, alot of teen parents dont stay together but that doesnt apply to everyone and she has no reason to be cruel! I am proof they can! Im not gonna lie, it was very hard at times with my daughter being so young and not completely financially stable but we waited until we had a house and were stable to have another baby! I would not change a thing about my life! I finished college, my husband has a great job (so great that i dont have to work but plan to after the baby bc i want to), built a nice big house and are completely in love! EVERYTHING you want i completely possible! If ya wanna talk, just message me! :) Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy! :)

thank you both -hopefull, and redrouge.
and hopefulll i am CATHOLIC. i don't believe in protection nor abortions. this is the one thing that is actually keeping me positive i use to be so negative like her. but no. a female should NOT be negative while she is pregnant it will cause stress in the baby from what i hear is not good. i am going to stay positive and i will not let ANYONE get to me and ruin this happiness. :) but thank y'all again.

Oh my lord, seriously Carenda!? Again with the negative response? Pay no attention to that classless person, she has posted several inappropriate responses on other questions and is simply just a bully. And also, she is a preachy christian because she has stated her christian status on a previous question.

I think it goes without saying that yes, birth control would have been the preferred thing to do but what's done is done and your're here asking for advice to make the best of it. I think that's fantastic considering most would abort. Hang in there and only focus on the positive feedback hun:)
