I Finally Have my King
Well unlike other girls I was different..I dressed differently...I talked differently. I wasn't the average...
I started having sex at a young age. I was eleven when I got my first real kiss from my best friend. He was four years older then me. I never thought I would like him like i did. In my mind we were just friends. But in the back of my mind, I was in love with him. He treated me like the world was mine and no one could take it away from me. My two older brothers and he and I grew up together so we were close. Well one night we were talking and we were home alone. He kissed me. I was scared but I wanted him to kiss me again. After awhile I just relaxed. We both had never did this before so we were nervous as EVER! ! We used a condom and everything. So the sex continued over the months; we always wore protection.
Then one morning I woke up and I felt HORRIBLE. I was vomiting and everything was in pain. I felt like crap. I told my boyfriend and he took care of me. I finally asked myself, AM I PREGNANT? I asked myself a million times before I asked my boyfriend. We just denied it; i couldn't have been because we used protection. We went to the store, bought a pregnancy test and got some real answers...and what would you know, I was 3 weeks pregnant. We were terrified. I couldn't stop a single tear. I didn't know how to manage...I prayed. I finally got the guts to tell my mom and she just cried. My brothers and my dad had it out for me until my 3rd month. I was huge. My boyfriend never left my side.I stayed in school. I wasn't ashamed.
Then it was done...my water broke at Kroger..lol...and on August 4,2005, King David was born. I never smiled so much in my life...all of it was worth it because I finally have my KING. My boyfriend are no l are no longer together, but hes still my best friend and I love him because he gave me the most beautiful gift in the world...Life.
That"s my story and even though I was young, I'm not saying go and have sex and get pregnant. To all the young girls- live your life, wait for that special one. Your body is a beautiful temple...cherish it...Love, TK
Unplanned MiracleI was 14 when I lost my virginity. I lost it with my boyfriend, Denyan. Denyan was the nicest, most loving boyfriend I ever had. We were going out for 5 months.
When I got pregnant, I went to the doctors with my sister who is 16. As soon as I found out that I was pregnant, I burst out into tears. I didn't know what to do. I told Denyan and he told me that it was going be okay, and that he was going be there for me and the baby. And he was.When I told my mum, she told me to go find somewhere else to live. I wished my dad was around to help me because he would of really helped me through this time. He himself had 11 kids, but my dad died when I was 12.
9 months went by really fast and before I knew it I was in the hospital giving birth. All of my family was there, except my mum. In the labor room there was only the doctors, me and Denyan. I was in labour for 11 hours and all of a sudden I heard my beautiful baby cry. It turned out that he was a boy. We decided to call him Liam Chad James O'day. He weiged 6.11lbz on the 19/7/09 at 12:07 pm.
Im proud to say that I am a good teenage mum. Im still in school and so is my boyfriend. I have a part time job as a pet store assistant as well. I love my son and boyfriend so much

Mistakes HappenI was fourteen when I first had sex. It was with my boyfriend, Jared. Jared seemed so nice and he was sixteen. He thought I was sixteen because we went to different schools so he thought I was a junior. I only dated him to show off to my friends that I was dating a older guy.
Jared raped me when when we snuck out one night to go hang out at this party behind his school in the woods. It was so cool, because we drank beer. He gave me the "Date Rape" drug by secretly dosing some in my beer. I remember only one thing, and that was me screaming for help when he pulled down my pants, but no one was there.
I found out I was pregnant when I went for a daily check up. The doctor told me I was two months pregnant. My mom was very upset but she is against abortion so she had me have the baby.
I told Jared, and he was upset. I screamed at him for not using protection and having sex with me by force. He left town and I don't know where he went, but his mother told me he probably left because he did something bad. I agreed.
I had the baby on November 23rd, 2007. The baby was beautiful, and I named her Cassandra (Mikayla).
Now she is three and is waiting for 2011 to come so she can go to pre-school. She is a auburn haired girl with dark blue eyes and a soft face.
I love her. Even though everyone says they never regret having their baby, I did at the beginning but then I didn't. Cassandra is beautiful and i love her.
Oh what a BlessingIt was the summer before my senior year at a catholic high school. My mom mentioned to me that I was around 3 weeks late for my period. It wasn't so abnormal because my period was always late. I decided to give it another week...We took a test together and it came back positive. My boyfriend and I were terrified. I told my parents the next day and they were devastated. I had just turned 17 three weeks before. My parents and I talked it over and we all decided that I was to stay at home and raise the baby with their help.I had a very smooth pregnancy with no complications at all. My due date was March 30, 2008. My friends at school were all very supportive and with them and the help of my family I had everything that I needed. On March 20th 2008 I called my boyfriend and told him that I was in labor. Not even 10 minutes later he was at the hospital with my mother, grandmother and my father. It was a long process and I ended up being in labor for over 36 hours. The pain was minimal since I had an epidural. At 2:17 pm on March 21 I gave birth to a very healthy baby boy weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces. When I heard him cry my boyfriend and I cried too. We were so happy that everything worked out just fine...It was a picture perfect day...
Without the love and support from my family, my boyfriend's family, and all our friends, I wouldn't have been able to do it. I am now a junior at a big university, work 2 jobs, and do everything that I possibly can to give my son the best life that a mother could give her child.
It was very hard to finish high school and go on to a big university right away, but since I live with my parents I am more than able to get through it. They do a lot for me and they love their grandson to pieces.
My boyfriend and I are now engaged and will be getting married in the near future. I want to finish school and settle down in a place of my own first. That way I can ensure the best life for my son possible.
It's not easy being a teen parent, but for all you girls out there that are in the same situation that i was in nearly three years ago i just want to say that if you keep your chin up and do everything that you are destined to do in your life, whether it's be becoming a doctor, or just working to get by, you can do it.
I don't recommend becoming pregnant at 17 or anything of the sort. I can tell you all to be careful and use protection.
Being a mother means everything in the world to me. My son's second birthday is coming up really soon. Time goes by so fast, but I don't regret a single thing. As long as you keep your priorities straight in your life you can pull through.
Good luck to all of you girls out there, young and old, who are dealing with this stress right now. Remember, if you put your mind to it, anything is possible
