TEEN MOTHER LIFE
I've read alot of stories on here some sad . Happy . Good . Bad etc
Well i would like to put up mines iam 16 my names Camilla Marie Sosa im from Bandera TX. It all started when i was Fourteen in my freshman yr of highschool when i met my first love who i thought was everything to me Jordan he was one of our school best football players he was 17 in his junior yr of highschool i never thought id be tha one he wanted to hangout with . Soon we started dating we didn't have sex untill 1 month of us dating i knew it was bad i lost my vriginity to him he didn't use protection said he'll " pullout " and so he did and we thought everything was fine a month after he broke up with me i was so heartbroken honestly . So i didn't speak to him after that day , 5 months later i was in tha shower when i reached for tha soap and felt a kick i instanly got scared but i didn't want mother to think nothing so i acted like nothing ever happend 3 days later i started to notice a small bump coming out my mind was freaking out i couldn't let tha thought of being pregnant sit in tha back of my mind . I told my bestfriend who who said i wasn't being myself lately so i told her she bought me a pregnancy test right away 3 in tha box took em all . All POSITIVE my heart sank with tears coming from my eyes i was only 14 my childs father was 17 im thinking ive made tha worst mistake but id never abort my baby or give him/her up to strangers . So i decided to keep my baby and not to tell Jordan well 1 day i. Stayed after school for a football game of course Jordan was playing when everyone was walking to home 2hrs later after their game when me and my best friend was getting our stuff by tha benches he went to his friend bench by ours he didn't say one word to me i reached for my book witch had fallen my jacket came open and he saw my bump i instanly turned to see if he saw he was looking dead at me . I told my friend come on i ran to tha side of tha school building went home later that night i gotta call from an unknown number it was Jordan said he saw me today that i looked pregnant i hungup in his face tha next morning was my appointment where i found out the sex and my first ultrasound because i didn't tell anyone noone knew so i had no doctor ar first so that day was exciting for me aswell . I found out i was having twins 2 girls i was already 5months along i was Sad and Happy at tha same time i didn't want no kids but i. Got used to one now i had to get use to 2!!! TWO BABYS TWO BABYS ???? Finally did and this time i called Jordan telling him that i was having his kids he said " KIDS " i said yeah my ultrasound said two babys he told me that he couldn't even deny them because he knew before i slept with him that i was a virgin my bestfriend told him also that i was a virgin before him he knew i told her everything . I told they were girls and if he wanted to come over and help pick out names for his daughters he said of course they were having his last name for sure i said thats fine I told him Camilleigh'Lynn for one He said Jordalynn'Leigh for tha other one he was happy one was named after him one was named after me . 2 months later at 7months and 2weeks went in to be induced i was in labor for 6hrs and 17minutes i had my babygirls via C-section worst pain of my life i promised to never have anymore kid that Milli and Ally was my last well when they were 1 i got pregnant again and wanted an abortion sooo bad but i knew i couldn't do i couldn't kill my baby so i started looking into adoption but my boyfriend and my family didn't approve it specially since i had twins already but i was 15 and didn't want anymore babies this soon after my daughters well when they said i was expecting a boy there was no way Jordan was giving up his son for nothing my whole family pressured me into keeping him and after a while i was loving my son and seeing Milli and Ally play and rub my bellie was priceless from there we started picking out names we came up with Jaydan Cade and on jan 20th 2012 at 4:58 am i gave birth to my first baby boy weight 8lbs 6oz looked just like his father and Camilleigh cause Jordalynn is MY twin lol he had his fathers green eyes too.

I'm sooo happy where my life is now i know if i hadn't had the girls and Jaydan id be still be drinking partying getting high etc . Well clearly my lifes changed dramaticly but in a good way looking back I don't regret a thing but i surely would have waited to have sex but my babies were no mistake planned or not . Their going to have a awsome life and honestly I love my fiance to death but he ever decided to leave.

My vision for a perfect familyWell I meet this guy who I talked to for months. We started dating in Septemebr of 2011. We had sex alot and I ended up getting pregnant within a couple of months. So, we tried to hide my pregnancy even tried to abort my baby but we couldn't. My mom found out when I was like 4 months. She was mad but got over it. My boyfriend at the time was there for us all the way up to when he was a couple of months old. He promised me and my son the world, but it didn't happen. He got locked up twice while I was pregnant and couldn't support us. So I told him I couldn't take only getting 30 to 40 dollars every two weeks to stretch for me and his child. I did what was best for me and my son. I got a job, stayed in high school, and I'm struggling on my own. The best thing I could tell you is to try and rap it up ladies. Cause getting pregnant is not fun nor cute, it comes with a responsiblity. There will be hard times but you have to think about your little one. Now, my son is all I think about and is the cutest baby ever. Please if you decide to have sex, wrap it up or don't do it all.

Gotta Stick Together.Hellooo. My name is Caroline. I'm 17 years old and I got pregnant when I was 16. My boyfriend was 15 at the time. We'd met in the High School Marching Band when I was going into my Sophomore year and he was going into his Freshman year. When we met, we became such good friends and we'd talk all day everyday. Well one day he found out his family was getting transfered to Michigan. We'd been dating for a good 6 months when he found this out. So like most couples, before he left we had a special night together. It was romantic and everything I could've imagined, or so I thought. A month passes and there's about 2 weeks before he moves. I'd been feeling sick and I knew we didn't use protection so I took a test. It came out positive. Holy crap. I was terrified. I called him up and told him. He started crying because he knew he couldn't be there for us. We told our families and boy were they mad. My brother and sister-in-law are my legal guardians and they threw a fit. His family threw one too. We'd gone to the doctor right before he left and confirmed I was 9 weeks along, with twins. I told my best friend, Cory and he's like wow. The day he left, our families made an agreement. He would come back and spend the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy with me so he wouldn't miss the birth of his children. He promised we would be together forever. I should've known he'd break it. He cheated on me and we broke up but still had our agreement. He came and I ended up going into labor a month early. We went to the hospital. Him, me, my brother and sister-in-law, and Cory came too. I was in labor for 5 hours. When it came time to push, he was right there by my side. About 10 minutes later, we had a son and a daughter.
Mason Hunter Bennett. 6 lbs. 4 oz.
Natalee Ryann Bennett. 6 lbs. 0. oz.
We were in love. He was worried about not seeing them everyday but I told him not to worry, Cory would help me out. Now, our twins are almost 4 months old and he comes down from Michigan once or twice a month to see them. I never pictured this. But that's the beauty in it. He skypes me almost every night to see his babies, but holding them is better for him. No matter the situation, we all have to stick together.
