I didnt know what to do.Hi my names Ashley, im 19 years old. When I was 14 I met my ex boyfriend Jeremy. We hit it off right away and I was head over heels for the boy. But the only bad thing about meeting him was he happened to be 18, and he liked to play sick little mind games. We were together for about a month before we started having sex.. without condoms. I wasnt scared of anything at first but when we celebrated out three months together I found out I was pregnant. t was the scariest thing in the world! I wasnt even 15 yet and I was gonna be a mom. I didnt tell anyone untill I started to throw up at school. But in high school no one keeps theyre mouths shut so he found out really quickly. He was so happy about it, but I wasnt. I wasnt ready to be a parent. I ended up going to the doctor about a month after he found out, and they told me I was almost 8 weeks pregnant.. but with twins. Jeremy was so excited but I knew it was wrong. He ended up proposing to me when i was 15 and I said yes. A week later we started fighting and I gave him the ring back and told him I wanted to get an abortion. He was so mad at me and broke up with me, told me I was a horrible person and i should give the twins to him and have no part in their lives. When I was 12 weeks I got an abortion. It was a horrible experience.. My mom was so supportive through the whole thing though.
Jeremy and I didnt talk untill I met my husband Andrew. He told Andrew to break up with me because I didnt care about anyone but myself. Andrew didnt care what he said and he always stuck by myside no matter what. He even said what I did for myself was the right thing to do, because I knew i could never have raised two babies alone when i was 15. I love Andrew with all my heart. We were together for a year and on his 18th birthday we went to Cabo San Lucas. Oh boy. When we got home I was really sick. I was pregnant again. Andrew and I did alot of talking and we told his mom first. She was soooooo supportive because she has Andrew when she was 16. My mom was really excited but scared for me. I was 17 when we found out we were having a little girl. We wanted to go on one last little vacation before our world changed. I was 6 1/2 months pregnant and he asked me to marry him. I said yes to him right away. We got married when I was 8 months pregnant. Our families were really proud of us for sticking together through it all. Aubrey Faith was born two weeks early but perfectly healthy <3 Andrew is my world and we love our little girl so much. I mad SURE to get on birth control right after she was born though. Andrews in the Navy now and he makes about 8,000 a month.. Hes gone for a month at a time and comes for two months. It sucks not having him here sometimes but in the long run its worth it for our family. We are COMPLETELY on our own and I dont want help from the families but I know i need it sometimes. Its hard to be a teen mom but it is possible to make it work!
16 *&&* pregnant!:(I am 16 years old, and about 3 to 4 weeks ago me and an ex broke up and my first thought was let me go find someone new and maybe everything will get better wail i can honestly say that it didnt. About a week and half down the line me and my babies father had sex. no condom what so ever because simply he was told that he couldnt have kids a year ago so we didnt worry about using a condom and i have to say that was my worst mistake yet. wail about a week after that me and my babies father broke up, and i got back with my ex that i was with before me and my babies father got together. wail about a few days ago my stomach started getting extremly weak, i couldnt eat the things that i once loved, i couldnt see something gross on tv without getting sick. i got extremly scared all that has been going threw my mind is what am i going to tell my grandma and my other family? are they going to hate me? are they going to kick me out? i dont know what to think! But as of right now i have only took one home test, and i am going to go get another one after school today. i am terrified! but i can honestly say for my self i am the one that had sex and i am going to take care of my baby! The babies father wants me to break up with the guy that i am with now if i am pregnant and get back with him and he will raise his baby also, but the thing is i dont think my family would approve of him being around for the simple fact that he is 21 and im 16. The guy that i am currently with says that he will take care of the baby also but i dont want that i dont want my baby calling tow people daddy! i just dont know what to do! help?
stuck in a pickle!I'm 17 years old and im 13 weeks pregnant. I haven't told anyone yet apart from my sister and my cousin. I have told the babys dad about my concerns before i found out i was carrying but i havent managed to get in contact with him since i've known i was pregnant and i dont know a thing about him i only have his facebook which he never goes on anyway. We had sex one night when we were drinking at my friends boyfriends place and three weeks later i missed my period, took three tests and they all came back positive. I'm really scared because im only here for a holiday and im moving countries in a couple days so i dont know what to do. Whether i should tell him hes going to be a father and risk getting shut down by some total doosh lord or see what he wants to do. hes pretty useless like those typical losers that smoke weed and drink all day with no job, and you wonder where does he get all this money from with no job???? yep well hes one of THOSE guys. Or i was thinking should i just take my kid and raise it on my own. I know it will be hard either way anyways. I dont know what to do!
Stay strong even if its hardWell my story starts out when I met my bf Christian we were both sixteen when we had sex we didn't use protection and now I don't know if I'm expecting or not and even worse him and my ex are really good friends so when I told Christian he freaked and told me to get an abortion but I couldn't cause i don't believe in that or abortion I told my other ex Logan but now he's distant and really not caring and it breaks my heart but im trying to be strong for if I am but it hurts knowing they don't care and yes I told my mom shes supportive.
