my little miricle
my baby girls lois and tali are now four mounths and they are still small but they are getting better.
anyway their dad was a loving man however this actually a rape story that turned good. he raped me we fell in love one thing led to another and well .... I became pregnant although I didn't actually find out until I was 20 weeks I hadn't been on birth control I hadn't even had irregular periods were completely normal, I dint put on any wait or get morning sickness well until I knew ...
only when I knew did I realise thati started to feel sick on mornings then eventually I was sick everyday from 21 weeks till 30 weeks because well all stories must have their bad points and tis is mine my babies were born 10 weeks prematurely when they were born they were tiny I could hold them in my hands one in each the were very badly deformed but I still love them endlessly
although when we brought them home me and their dad had a row I kicked him out and I know live happily ever after with my two little miricles
did I forget to mension I have miss carried before had still births and cot deaths if that had not of worked it would have been either ivf or adoption or become foster parents but I am sure as heck it did work
love all you single mums out their
An Amazing Race.Alright, my name's Kathleen and here's my story.
I was 17 when I fell pregnant to my religious boyfriend. We'd been dating secretly for almost 2 years. He's a year younger than me as well. The day I found out I was pregnant, I was mortified. His parents didn't really approve of us dating because his family is Mormon. I told him and he cried a little bit because his parents didn't even know we were dating, let alone that I was pregnant. We finally told his parents and they were mad. So mad. He was kicked out of his house and he moved in with me to help take care of the baby. We found out I was having a boy and we were ecstatic. I was 34 weeks pregnant at the time of my graduation. I got my diploma and as we were leaving, I realized my water broke. It scared me because he was 6 weeks early. My boyfriend called everyone, including his parents and told them the baby is coming. So we went to the hospital and I was in labor for 9 hours. I delivered vaginally, but the baby wasn't crying when he was born. The doctors took him away and he was barely breathing. They had to put him in the NICU and hooked him up to a machine to help him breathe. He had BPD, also known as Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia. My boyfriend and I were devastated. We were scared our son was going to die. He had to stay in the hospital for about 6 weeks. After that, we could take him home but needed to come back frequently for check ups. Before we left, we had his birth certificate issued and everything.
Nathaniel Chester Thomas Underwood.
born on: June 2, 2013.
4 lbs. 8 oz.
18 inches long.
Nate is about 4 months old now, and he's as healthy as can be. We had a horrible scare with him, but it brought both families closer and it was a remarkable thing to overcome because we knew we could all fight it. I love my son more than anything in this world and I will do everything in my power to give him a memorable life.
my storyI'm now a mum to a beautiful baby girl and although im not with her father im soo thankful for this amazing blessing! She's my absolute world (:
15 months ago i fell pregnant, and didn't even know about it until i was 19 weeks. I was scared at first but excited at the same time, in my head was this fantasy of what it'd be like having a baby.
Little did i know, when i told my partner at the time, he ended leaving me with-in hours after telling him, he even asked me to lie to others about it and say that we'd broken up before i told him. That hurt! To think you know everything about one person to looking at them and asking yourself, who are you? It's heartbreaking.
Of course i was guttered and it took a huge emotional toll on me for months, i tried to hide it from everyone but i told my sister and then everyone knew. Which helped. It was out there, people knew so they knew not to talk about him around me which was heart-warming.
Throughtout my pregnancy i forced myself to be strong. I forced myself to move on. I knew that if i was able to convince myself im capable without him, id believe it myself. And thats exactly what happened.
Im stronger than ever, im happy because of this little girl i call my baby. Im a single mum and a good one. I was put through something i would never ask for anyone else to go through because it's that's heartbreaking. And nobody deserves it.
I'm 18. I was pregnant at the age 17, gave birth 3 weeks after my 18th to a healthy gorgeous baby girl. Im happy.
If anything i just wanna say teen pregnancy is preventable, and im strongly not encouraging termination im encouraging pregnancy prevention because being a young mum is no fantasy. We see society going cray-cray about celeb-babies but reality compared to them are two complete different stories. You will be judged! You will be scrutinized. You will fill with emotions and tears, confusion and frustration. It's no fantasy

15 and pregnantWell, I just recently found out I'm six weeks pregnant and I'm also in foster care. I'm already starting to show and everybody knows. The whole school knows for Gods' sake. I'm having, I swear, ALL of the symptoms. I'm going to keep the baby, as now I am excited because I thought about it. I realize it's going to be extremely hard but what else could I do? I would never abort the baby or put him/her up for adoption. Also, I don't know who the dad is. Don't worry, I know my baby deserves to know who the father is, but i havent found out yet. I will soon though. My advice if you're pregnant, is don't be.
