15 & PREGNANT
WOW, I am 15 also, and I might be pregnant! The guy that I had sex with is 18 and he broke up with me on Friday. I know that he will be there for the child, but I am only 15! My life is sooo over!
Well, this goes to Megan, "OMG IM PREGNANT,Ē but yah, now well have to have a kid with us, but we can still do some things! Just hang in there! I will! No matter what my family says, I WILL NOT give this baby up!
To all you teenage moms, HANG IN THERE, THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!!
15 and a mommy!!I am 15 years old and I am a mother of a 1-year-old baby.
When I first found out I was pregnant I cried and I locked myself in my room for two days. The father of the baby had dumped me three days earlier and I was scared to call him. I took the chance and he didnít react the way I thought he would. He began laughing and told me that he would do anything he can to help me out, but he wanted to be friends. I agreed.
Now I have a beautiful baby girl, Minnilina, and she is my world and I am so blessed to be her mother. I hope this story tells you that it is very hard having a child I encourage you to have one as an adult.
My lifeWhen I was 12, I met this guy named Alex. He had beautiful bluish green eyes and pretty brown curly hair. We got really close and since he was my next-door neighbor I was at his house all the time.
We started going out and after a year on my 2 months before my 13th birthday, we got into an argument. It hurt me so bad, so to make it up I told him we could have sex. He said we didnít have to, but I told him I wanted to. I thought that would be the only way to make him love me again. So on Valentines Day, we did it in his room while his mom was at work.
I started having symptoms that I was pregnant and after 2 moths me and my boyfriend took a pregnancy test, which came out positive. I was so sad I cried in Alex's arms for hours. We were going to tell our parents, but we didnít have to, because they started seeing the growth in my belly month by month. They said I had to leave their house so I moved in with Alex.
When I had my baby, I was only thirteen. I was happy to have her but it was hard. We named her Alana Michelle, Alana for Alex, and Michelle for Rachell. She is so beautiful. She has long curly hair, green eyes, and the prettiest voice in the world.
I am 20 now, and Alana is 7 and a half, as she says. I married Alex, and we take online college courses so we can graduate. My life is great, but it isnít a good idea to get pregnant at 13.
Girl with the babyI was 13; I was in love with life and couldnít imagine anything could go wrong. I marched around in little Hollister clothes and Abercrombie flip-flops. I had a boyfriend who was 16 and a lot older, but I made it work and bragged about him all the time. I was one of those girls who has the guy everyone want and the dream life. I lived in a large 3-story house. My mom and dad were rich accountants and couldnít have a care.
One day I went to a big teen party, you know the ones where the parents arenít there. Well my boyfriend and I went the full way through. I was pretty drunk and had had some pot and crack. The next month I started getting sick in the morning all the time. I had serious cramps, headaches, and missed 2 periods. I was terrified. I told my mom I had an afternoon study session. Instead I went to Planned Parenthood and got tested. I was pregnant. I was shocked yet excited at the same time. My life was flipped.
I got a sonogram and found out I was having twins! I was only 13!!! Well my boyfriend broke up with me and insists itís not his but I know it is. I am now 8 1/2 months pregnant with twins Willow and Kareb. They are due in May 22nd. I am now 14 and am worried. My parents kicked me out and my aunt took me in to her household. I'm planning to keep my children. To be pregnant is very emotional. You feel whole and completed.
I donít recommend it for young people but it is the most powerful and emotional experience I have ever had.
sad but happyI'm 15 and a single mom and well here is my story.
Me and my ex-boyfriend found out I was 5 months pregnant and he stayed with me for about 2 months after that. Then he left me for some other 15-year-old girl. Heís 18 and he is still wanting to take care of his son Aaron James Frazer. And we are still friends. But there will always be a part of my hart that will still love him after he hurt me.
But Iím getting over loving him little be little.
And Iím 8 months pregnant today and thatís about it!
