I Never Though It Would Be Like This.
Hi my name is Akia. I'm 15 years old and I'm 8 months pregnant. My son Carmello will be born June 27th. The only problems that I'm having is with his father Deion. When i found out i was pregnant i was scared to tell Deion because I didn't kno what he was going to say. When I told him he didn't say anything about it. I cry all the time because I'm still in love with him and I'm scared that he won't be there for our son. I think he's scared because he's younger than me but I honestly don't know why he doesn't say anything. I know that I'll be a single mom for a while until he steps up but I will make sure that my son has everything he needs with or without his father.
14 and pregnant.When I was 14, I fell pregnant. I didn't use contraception as I thought, 'It will be fine, it won't happen to me.' How wrong I was. My mum knew I was worried about something, but I didn't tell her I could have been pregnant. After a while, she figured it out. After six pregnancy tests, I felt so shocked to be a mother. The father, who stayed by us until I was 16 weeks gone, was so scared. Things were fine until he rang me one day to break up with me, he'd cheated on me but said he still wanted to be a part of our baby's life. 5 weeks has passed now and I'm 21 weeks gone. I have decided not to let my baby's father have contact with our son, as he's on drugs and is constantly in trouble with the police. I still love him and miss what we were as a family, but no hurt I feel can compare to the hurt he will feel when his son asks him why he was never there for us.
Single Mom :/i'm 15 years old, and pregnant, the father of the baby doesn't want anything too do with the baby, but he has to remember he is always the father of my unborn child. the night i had sex and my wonderful child was conceived, i told my mom the next dad that he used a condom but took it off and came in me, she wasn't the sad about it. she just said "he is the stupid one for taking it off" the she took me out too eat and we talked about the whole thing. I have a sister, she is a teen mom as well. when i told my mom i figured she'd freak out like she did with my sister, all though she didn't.i've been told i'm not ready for a child. but then again maybe i am, maybe this unborn child will change me and i will become a better person then i am not. it will stop me from the nonsense things i do. and i know i can be a wonderful single teen mom too my wonderful child, i have not told my father about this. but i know how he will react. i told my mom i already had names for the baby(: Serenity Renee Donette, Or Landon Joesph Allen. Donette is my moms middle name and Joesph is the babys dads middle name and Allen is my dads middle name. (: i am due in Feb 2012. i am scared, but ready too meet this challenges that are ahead of me. I really hope after the babies born his or her dad will be more clam too join in. cause i really can't expain to my child why his or her dads not in the picture. it will break there heart. </3 thanks for listening.
14 & PregnantDuring the beginning of my freshmen year of high school I was pregnant. i did not find out i was pregnant until i was 4 months and it was at the end of my volleyball season. I was scared about everything. I tol my boyfriend and my auntie first because I was way to affraid to face my parents. I got a lot of suport from my boyfriend, as soon as I was ready to tell my parents they were mad and disappointed in me because I had a bright future. But as soon as they saw their granddaughter, they were happy! Now we live together with our 2 year old daughter, and get really great support from both sides from our parents. Even though being a parent is super exciting but i just hope most of you wait until you are finished with school and find that right guy that will do whatever it takes to kep you happy.
How I told my momAt Christmas every year, one of the gifts my mother would always get is a coffee mug. Something funny, something to do with horses, whatever I could find that I thought for a coffee cup would be meant for her. (She enjoys her coffee cups). The tag always said, "To Mom, From Me". This particular year that I was carrying and she did not realize it yet, The little box came up but instead of saying "To mom, from me......it read "To Grandma From your future grandchild. My mother looked at it in total confusion at first. She looked at me, then back to the cup, not knowing if it was a mistake in the tags or not. Her face turned total red, she got up and paced not saying anything....and leaving me totally uncertain of her true reaction. Finally, after a long few minutes....she looked at me and said, "I'll tell you right now, its a boy". She still has the cup to this day. And incidently.....she was right...it was a boy.
