My new life
Im 18 and pregnant with 10 days left untill i will be able to see my baby boy. It all started when i was with my ex and i got pregnant with my 1st baby. i ended up getting an abortion because he thought we were too young. Soon afther the abortion we broke up but continued to have sex. He would pull out and state that i couldnt get pregnant that way. Well me and him stopped talking for about 3months and in Feb i foundout i was 3months pregnant. I called him up and told him. He said he was supportive with whatever i chose to do. We discussed adoption because abortion was out the question. We decided to keep the baby and he has been a big help up untill july. He claimed he wanted a dna test because he dont believe that the baby is his. Im now 38weeks pregnant and he decided to not do anything for my baby untill the test.
A mistakeHi im Daisy Im 17. I got pregnant at 16 my boyfriend at the time was 17, We were going out for a month then we started having sex, he was leaving to the marines pretty soon. I really liked him so much when we were having sex, I was really stupid having uprotected sex. The day before he was going to leave I told him That I didnt want him to leave cuz I loved him, So he didnt go.. Couple weeks later I missed my period I got scared I thought ooh it must be late or something. Aug 27th 2008 Senior yr started I told my friends that I could be prego. So they bought me a couple pregnancy tests. I took them while in school. Came out with double lines. I tod my mom I wasnt feeling good then she took me to the doctor they did an ultrasound I find out Im 7weeks. My mom was happy and dissapointed. My older sisters found out they didnt want me to do the same mistake like they did and have a baby so young. So i got an abortion, I felt like crap after, I wasnt the same person. And thats when my relationship wit my boyfriend and I just ended it. lots of drama. Its been almost a year later and Im with this guy who is becoming a Marine now. He left like a week ago. And he doesnt know im 3 weeks pregnant. But his mom know and she is helping me. And I couldnt be any happier. He is going to be in a big suprise when he finds out. That emptyness inside of me is gone and I cant wait to be a mommy.
The long road aheadIm nineteen years old and a sophomore in college, I have been with the same boy for almost three years now, the past couple months have been pretty hard for us because we fight about everything possible, I wasnt sure we were gonna make it a few times but when I found out i was pregnant he was very happy and supportive, he told me it was meant to happen and we would always me together now. WRONG..... after about 2 weeks of his support he slowly got tired of me because I was too emotional and constantly wanted to talk about how we were gonna handle the new baby. we got in a huge fight and he said he wanted absolutely nothing to do with me and that I should get rid of the baby.
I moved out and back in with my mom, I havent heeard from him in days just rumors about all the parties he's going to... it kills me that after three years he cant even care not only about me but his kid. I always thought he would man up for a cihild but I was wrong and it just proves you really have no clue who people are.
I know other situations could be worse, but I feel soo completely alone and want to talk to him so bad but I no him not caring will tear me down even more and im trying so hard to be strong.
Im so scared to have this baby alone and try to finish college, but I am determined to do it... for both of us <3
My babiesHey my names Shelbi.. I am 17 years old and i have a 2 and a half year old and a 3 month old at home.. Well let me start from the beggining..

We were dating for about 4 months, we had sex.. well i got put on birth control after our second time.. So we decided we didnt want to use condoms, so we stopped well i forget my birthcontrole one day and i didnt pay attention.. when i became preganant my parents kicked me out.. i moved in with Kaleb..
He got arrersted after Brylee Page was born she was 1 month old.. he got out a week before her first birthday.. We got back together.. It was hard.. Brylee didnt even know who he was but know she does.. and its soo cute watching them lay on the couch.. Well after her second birthday i found out i was 3 months pregnant again.. i was scared..
Kaleb went off and got arrested again. so he miss his little boy being born.. Bryan Kaleb is his name.. when he was 1 month old his dad got out.. he wants to see him. so he can see them for 1 hour a day, and they can stay at his house once a week.. its hard taking care of both of them.. Kaleb doesnt come around much maybe 3 times a month..
I excpect him to be back in jail soon..
but i do love him..
But Bryan Kaleb and Brylee Paig our my world.. and i will do anything to protcect themm
My Pregnant YearsI was 16 and a junior when I got my first boyfriend. I thought he was perfect so when he wanted to have sex, I agreed. We became seniors and had been dating for 8 months and I thought I loved him. We had sex 3 times. I turned 17 and a week later I learned I was a month pregnant. I was so scared and I really didn't want a baby. I finally told my boyfriend when I was 2 months along and he was not happy. He yelled at me for telling my 2 best friends, but I hadn't told my family. He wanted an abortion and so did I. I wanted to finish high school with high honors and get in a good college and a baby would ruin my life! When I was 2 1/2 months along I went in for my abortion. The woman made me get an ultrasound but I didn't care. I wanted the baby gone. After, I was so relieved; I felt like my life had changed and I was a different person. I realized my boyfriend was not right for me so I dumped him. I finished my high school, went to college, and got a new boyfriend. I thought he might be the one and I felt so lucky. But then I realized I felt guilty about the baby, that I had never got to meet MY baby, never got to know MY baby, never got to hold it. I felt I needed punishment. So when my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time I lied and said I was on birth control. I took a pregnancy test and I was pregnant! It was 1 month before my 18th birthday, like last time. I told my boyfriend when I was 3 weeks and he was shocked that I got pregnant on the pill. He said he could take time off college and get a good job since it was OUR fault the baby was coming. I told my friends and family when I was 1 1/2 months. My boyfriend wanted to tell his family when I was 2 months but I wouldn't let him. I felt awful and told him the truth. I ended our relationship so he wouldn't have to and told him that he should stay in school next semester but I won't. I think he was really surprised and didn't know what to say or do. I carried my baby and found out it was a girl. A month before her due date, my ex boyfriend came back and said he wanted to be a dad in her life because no matter what, he was her father. So I gave birth to Molly Willow on July 6, 2009, a week early. He was always there for her and told me he forgave me and was never really mad at me. He had gotten a new girlfriend but never stopped thinking about us. They broke up 5 weeks before Molly was born. When she was 1 month old, he asked me to be his girlfriend again. :)
Molly is such a lovely little girl and I know my life is changed forever for the good and bad.
