So i found out that i was pregnant a few weeks ago, i was on shock for these past weeks, but still in the high of happiness, i was trying to get pregnant for the past 1 and a half year with my boyfriend for 3 years, after waiting, now it was given. i went to my o.b last 2 weeks and found out that i'm about 3 weeks then,i even took an ultrasound test to see if the baby is okay. it turned out that she/he is healthy. my boyfriend and i talked about it and we were kinda excited and scared at the same time, i'm only 18 and i'm worried that i might stop schooling. and the big bang thing is how the hell can we tell our parents about it. we're still planning on that thing. right now, i'm beginning to be nauseous and always hungry, im even worried because my immune system turns ti weaken.:( im having colds and cough. and i'm wishing that it wont affect the baby. by this comming week, i'm off to see my doctor again to determine my due date. and i'm so excited seeing my baby again, and to feel his/ger first heartbeat, i'm about 6 weeks now, and i cant wait to see my precious one to come out. i love her/him so much!:)
Single momI found out I was first pregnant when I was 17.. I met my babys father at a party. I really did love him until I found out he had a girlfriend of 2 years and I was just a one of the many girls he had cheated on her with. My parents weren't really happy with me and my dad didn't even talke to me during my whole pregnancy. I had the support of all my friends because the father said my wonderful babygirl wasn't his when I found out it was a girl. Now that I'm going to be 21 in march 2011 and mya will be 2 in January 2011 her father has seen her only 2 times and he lives around the corner from my parents house. My dad finally warmed up to the idea that I had a baby young but mya is his little princess now... Having my supportive family and friends behind me I realize I don't need myas father I occasionlly bump into at the store with mya and he just ignores her but loves his baby boy who is 4 months older than mya. I have come to realize that mya don't need her real dad in her life because my best guy friend who has 2 kids of his own has stepped up and became the father figure in her life that ive always wanted and I am grateful for that... I hope on day he will wake up and realize he has a daughter in this world.
i love my baby girlso i found out i was pregnant when i was 16 years old. I was entering my senior year of high school. the father had moved to college in new york so he was not able to help with the baby although he wanted to. my parents were absolutely furious so they kicked me out of the house and i went to live with my best friend jess for a few months. my parents finally came to terms with the situation and let me live at home again. from that point on, they were semi- helpful with the pregnancy, but they were still against me keeping her. i did anyways, because i knew it was what i wanted and i know now that that was the best decision have ever made. i love my baby girl more then anything in this world. my old friends always want to hang out with me, but i could not get myself to leave her side for a second. i dropped out of school, so i spend all my time with her and it makes me happier then anything i could be doing
she is named aubrey blaire macaulley
my blessing :)i am 13, and in my 5th month. my baby wasnt planned, but is a blessing to me. i was following the wrong path, but as soon as i fell pregnant, i found my way again.
i do not live with my parents, but with my older sister, Leah who's 20. shes like a mom to me, because our parents werent great role models and as soon as Leah was old enough she moved out and took me too.
my sister respects my desicion, especially as my baby brought me back from the edge.
the father, josh is 18, and he says he will pay, but he doesnt really want a relationship with the baby, just to help out because its partly his responsibility.
i hope to find out soon whether it is a boy or girl, if its a girl she will be called Rosie Annaleis Emma, and a boy would be called William Oscar Harvey. my little joy is due 3rd of january next year, and i'll be 14 by then.
a lot of people say im way too young, but they dont understand how this baby has helped me, it has made me grow up and realise my wrong doings.
i thought id share my story because some people think teen moms are shameful, low, and stupid for not using protection and all that, but you cant just scoop us all up into that category, sure some girls prbably are like that, but im fed up of people looking at me like that! i DID use protection, i was on the effing pill! i mean not every teen mom screws up, give us a chance yeah? then make ur judgements.
Hopefully Teen Mum?I am seventeen and just yesterday I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive and it said I was over three weeks. I've been feeling nausea for a little over a week now. I wish it would stop. My boyfriend and I have been together for seventeen months, and I told him I was pregnant. He wasn't upset or mad or anything, he was just worried about everything. I haven't yet told my parents about me being pregnant. Only a few of my friends know. I'm afraid of telling my parents because I don't know what their reaction would be. I think I am going to tell my mother today, because I don't want to wait until it's too late to tell her. My father is going to be upset, he just wants me to do good in life. And I still have one more year left of school to attend to. I don't want to get an abortion because my boyfriend and I are against that. And I know my father wouldn't let me give the baby up for adoption. So I guess whatever happens, happens. I wouldn't mind keeping the child, but I know it's not going to be easy. I just hope I can be a good mother for my baby. I hope my parents' reactions aren't too bad when I tell them I am pregnant. Wish me luck.
