21 and unexpected
I'm only 21 I'm going back to school in a week. 2 more years of college and
I've got a degree. Thing is, i had a tough day at school so i went to a bar with my boyfriend, we've been dating for a year and 2 months. He is lovely, we had sex that night at his place and it was great, unprotected, he said it would be fine. I believed him, too late, that was on the 21st, I missed my period this month (its from 1-10 about). I thought it must be late, never happened before so i panicked last week. I went to my sister's house (she's 29). I asked her if she could buy me a pregnancy test (Im still embarrassed about it). She came back and I tried and it said negative, I was soooo happy. Short lived, I felt really sick the next day and was really unfocused at my temporary job. I came home and I tested again (my sister bought more than one) it was positive, I panicked, I tested again and again positive... I don't really know whether Im going to keep it. I think i will though, but school is going to be hard. My boyfriend and I don't want to rush it (I've told him) we discussed that maybe moving in together was an option so thats the plan. WE are moving in together after my first trimester, just to make sure its what we want. He's very loving and I know he will love our child, but what will happen to us i don't know. Thanks for reading I needed somewhere to let out...
Finding Out I'm Pregnant.I had always tried for a baby, and I had trouble in my 20s getting pregnant (I'm 31 now). But the other night I woke up with horrible pains in my body, and the pain got so painful I thought it was something life threatening. But I had missed my period the other day, and after feeling sick I knew I was pregnant. I called my sister (who was 26) to come and visit me and I took a pregnancy test and showed her it said pregnant. I am now a month gone, I only told my sister and baby's dad but I don't want to tell my dad because he is in hospital being treat for pneumonia, I hope my baby is born healthy and happy.
Miracles can happenMy story isn't like any other story on this site. I got told when I was 21 that I couldn't get pregnant even if I tried different ways. I was so desperate to have a child when I met my boyfirend Oliver who is now 25. I dated Oliver for about 2 years and then we became engaged on new years eve 2012. We had unprotected sex not trying for a child but three days later I had terrible morning sickness. I took a pregnancy test hours after and it came back positive. Some tests are not reliable so I went to the doctors with my boyfriend I got told I was pregnant. I was over joyed. I'm due in late october, early november. We found out that we were having twin non identical girls! So excited. Our little miracles
My babyMy name is Aaliyah and I just turned 16 in February. I missed my period last month and at first i thought it was nothing, maybe its just late.. I had sex for the first time with this boy I've known for about 3 years now and we've talked on and off. He's going to be 21 in September. He recently just had a baby boy in December and he's a great dad. He just tells me he doesn't want anymore kids. I've been feeling extremley sick lately, but just try not to pay attention to it. I went and seen him yesterday and he asked me if I was pregnant and I told him no, and just sat down. We had sex again, with no protection once again. My period hasn't came for this month yet and I'm quite scared. Last night, he told me he was still having sex with his son's mother and that made me feel so disgusting. I gave him my virginity and now I may be pregnant. I have no idea what I'm going to do.. I"m only a sophomore and still have big dreams and goals ahead of me.. If I am pregnant, I plan on keeping my baby and moving to Atlanta with my father. I'm really nervous to take the test, but we will see what happens. I hope my "unborn" childs father will be there for my baby like he's there for his son... I just feel really stupid and hope the test comes back negative. *Crosses fingers*
Not Perfect, Just Simple.I was also a young mother. I was only 17 when I had my daughter, but I have to say that I was on such a higher level of maturity then most of the girl's on this site. I am not saying that I am, nor was, and never will be prefect but I did know what I was getting myself into when I had sex with my boyfriend (now husband). I was not taking care of myself and I knew what could come out of it. I had finished school by the time I was 17 and was already done with my first semester of college by the time I found out I was 3 months pregnant. My pregnancy did not stop me from doing what I had to do, yet it motivated me to do what I had to do. Not for myself, but for the child that did not ask to be put on this earth yet I made that decision for her. It infuriates me to see young kids playing the role of adults, that want to play house but don't want to take the bills too. They leave that all to the grandparent's. I never did that. I had to pay for child care, and for every single thing my child needed because I refused to let my parents pay for my responsibilities. So I had to become a full time mom/student/employee. My mom offered to babysit for free and I denied it. My mother-in-law offered to babysit for free, and I denied her too. I was "grown' enough to make a baby then I could grown enough to take care of her by myself. My husband was also there so I didn't need to ask anyone for anything but him. Now I was 21 and going on my second baby. My Husband owns his own car shop and I am a RN, between my husband and I, we make about 120k a year and are well off. So I can say that we have been nothing be good outcomes. I understand that mistakes happen, but this days there is a lot of ways to prevent teen pregnancy. I am speaking out of experience and know how hard it is. But these girls have no self respect and no means of supporting a child yet are have up to three before they are even 21, the legal age to drink in the US. They can not even have a drink for diner at a restaurant, but they do have kid after kid. I know I am only 21 and having another child but I made sure to go to school and better my education before I tried for another child. I guess what I'm trying to say is, open your eyes wide girls, and really see what is out there for you guys. Know that there is more out there then the hot new guy, or the love of your life this week. Because I was lucky enough to find a man that had given me the best five years of my life and had been a great father, but not all of us are lucky like that.
