: hey.. well i am about 8 weeks pregnant, the father wanted me to get an abortion, but i refused.. he said he would stay with me. everything was going well when me and him had an argument about a week ago, he started to hit me in the stomache several times because he wanted me to miscarriage, i am not with him anymore, and i pressed charges, but i am scared to do this alone. i need advice on what to do, i go to court soon, and he is saying i hit myself, i am only 18 and he is 29.

Dear Christina,

I am sorry to hear about what happened to you and i hope you are feeling better. First, I believe you can do this alone and you have already made a great choice by keeping the baby. If you were old enough to have sex then you are old enough to put up with the consequences. Second, you are better off without a violent father to your child. Do you have any family? Friends? relatives? Who can help? Just calm down and think about your baby, you both have been through a lot and you will get through without a doubt.
