Pregnant and alone
I became pregnant at age 15. Scared as hell. I met my child's father at my 15th birthday party. When he approached me and asked my name, ect. From there he asked one of my friends for my number. We began hooking up a month later. Him taking my virginity. After that we began having sex almost every all the time. My parents didn't know. No one knew about us. I kept us a secret because i knew it would cause drama. only a few people knew. I didnt think anything would happen. Until one day my body felt different, So I went to my school's health center. I took the test and I was 9 weeks. I didn't know what to do. So, I hid my pregnancy. Only he knew. He was very supportive but he insisted I didnt keep it because he already had a kid and he already knew it would be a huge responsibility. I started showing and people started questioning. So, I finally came out with it. My child's father went to jail so I had no one. I gave birth to my handsome son 6/16/11.I felt so ashamed and alone. So i began to write my child's father. We wrote letters, but after awhile I just stop writting back. I'm now a single teen mom, trying to make a better future for my son. It's extremely hard.I just wish I had someone there for me.

Pregnancy was tough, motherhood is harderI was 14 when I first fell pregnant, the guy who got me pregnant was out of the picture and to be honest he was never really in the picture. It was irresponsible to have sex unprotected but it wasn't something I worried about. I hid my pregnancy from everybody, and nobody found out until I started to show. I didn't go to a doctor until I was 16 weeks. At that point my mum and dad were massively angry. I decided to give my baby up for adoption so I could continue my schooling. I had Mya four weeks early, and once I saw her I knew that I could never give her away to strangers. My parents didnt support me keeping, but there was nothing they could do to stop me. When mya was a year old I left my mum's house and went to live with my new boyfriend of five months. He adores Mya and we are expecting our own child, a boy to be born in December.
My storyMy mom was questioning me about not coming on my cycle,but it was only a couple days late so I didn't think anything of it.One day my cousin over heard me and my mom arguing about not coming on my cycle and asked me what was all the fuss about.I told her and she asked me did I want to get a pregnancy test and I told her yeah.I took it and found I was very much pregnant.i waited about a week to tell my mama she was hurt!We weren't seeing eye to eye so she made me move to Texas with my dad.He had wanted me to get an abortion like my mom did but I refused!I felt lonely my whole pregnancy my baby's father acted like a whole different person he called like once every two weeks and would say really mean things to me.It was just awful.I didn't see a doctor until I was five months pregnant!I thought something would be wrong,but as soon as I went not long after that I found out I was having a little girl as the doctor was doing my ultrasound she said she has a beautiful heart those words stuck to me until I gave birth.I ended up moving back home with my mom.She accepted my pregnancy and got over it.A month later I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl name Alayna Nicole.She's five months and is my everything.Im a junior in high school and is on the Honor Roll.It takes extreme dedication to be focused on school with a child.Being a teen age parent is hard and you will have obstacles you just have to stay dedicated.
