Pregnant and dating romances
All pregnant women in England are offered an ultrasound scan at around 8 to 14 weeks of pregnancy. It's used to see how far along in your pregnancy you are and check your baby's development.
Your midwife or doctor will book you a dating scan appointment.
You may also be faced with an increased level of overprotectiveness from your parents, who may try to keep tighter reins on you, restricting your social activities.
It is at this point that you may begin to consider the options of adoption and abortion.
With the idea of becoming parents or giving up a baby to consider, the carefree and intense romance of your dating relationship may come to a halt.
You will be faced with serious decisions which may distract from the intense romance you had.
According to the article “Teenage Pregnancy: Consider the Options,” published by the Mayo Clinic, with this type of unplanned pregnancy, you must both make more immediate and direct plans for the future.
