I'm Keeping My Baby
My boyfriend is also my best friend. When I told him I was pregnant I was really worried about how he would take it. I didnít want to loose him. At first he was shocked and didnít talk to me for 2 days. It hurt me a lot. But when he had time to cool down, he came to me and told me that he wanted me to keep the baby but would support me with whatever option I wanted. I also wanted to keep the baby, so we decided we would.
Chris* was amazing through the whole of my pregnancy. Being so young we got a lot of judgment but either of us cared because it was what we had wanted. Today we have a beautiful two-month-old son named Bailey. Heís so perfect and I wouldnít change him for the world. Both our parents have been very supportive.
Teen mums: do whatís right for you, not what everyone else wants you to do.
My MiracleI was 15 when I first found out that I was pregnant. I had taken a pregnancy test 5 weeks after having sex with my boyfriend who I have been wih for almost two years. We both love each other very much.
When I was about 3 months, I told my boyfriend. He was excited to be a father, on the other hand my parents weren't so happy, but after some time they got over the fact and accepted it.
I am now 16 years old and have a wonderful beautiful baby boy named Donavan who is about one month now. Me and my boyfriend are going to be getting married once I finish school. I know what it's like to be pregnant and scared.
the day teenage life comes to an ebd
The day I got pregnant was so scary. I had no clue on what to do because I was only 11 years old. I was 11 when I decided to have sex and get pregnant. I did not plan on it but it happened.
The way I found out I was pregnant was when my sister thought she was pregnant and I asked her to let me have her other test and she did. So I took the test and when the test was ready, that was the day I found out I was pregnant. It changed my whole life as being 11. I new I was not ready for a baby but I knew that I had to change all the things I did. For 3 months my life went on and being a teenage mother.
But the day came when I lost my baby due to my best friend that hit me in the stomach, but she did not know so I did not blame her I only blamed my self. The day I lost the baby I thought my life was coming to an end, but it did not. I went on like nothing had happened and now I a 16 and going to school and getting good grades.
If I had had the baby I would not be where I am now but I lost the most important thing in my life my child. The day I got pregnant was the day my teenage life came to an end.
But now I am doing very well hopefully this will help you in a time of need.
Fear and LoveRight now I am really scared that I am pregnant by my boyfriend. We are very much in love and he is really excited for his first baby. I on the other hand donít know what to do...
I love my boyfriend very much and even though we are going through a lot right now, I hope that all you teenage pregnant girls out there have a man like mine. Because of him I feel like I can do anything in the world...
All of you who want an abortion, just know this life inside of you will one day be a person like you and him/her deserve a right to live in this world.
Young MotherI got pregnant at the age of 15. Then 2months into my pregnancy my mother sent me away. I lived in a foster home up until 4 days after my daughter was born. It was very hard. I only got to see my daughterís father every weekend. I was 16 when I actually delivered her.
When I left the foster home I moved in with my best friend and her parents. They helped me a great deal and became my new family. I am now 18 years old I have my GED and I work 2 jobs to support and raise my daughter, I donít go out and have fun with my friends anymore and honestly it doesnít bother me like most people think. I am still with her father of 3years and plan on getting married next year. We live together as one big family and this is probably the happiest I've ever been.
MY daughter completes me and makes me whole. Even though I was young I still wouldnít change it for the world and thatís a fact. My daughter is what puts that consent smile on my face and she is my best friend. When I'm mad or depressed all I have to do is look at her or touch her skin or hold her and Iím instantly calmed down.
I Love her with everything in me. And Iím proud to be a teenage mom.
