My fiance and I recently went our seperate ways. Feeling lost and abandoned, I turned to the comfort of a good friend of mine. I'm not seven weeks pregnant and feel obligated to be with this friend. He's comforting, assuring, and very nice. But I don't feel a connection with him other than friendship. This pregnancy is a blessing, regardless, as I've suffered four miscarriages. The morning sickness is horrible, but something I'll get through just fine. Single parenting isn't such a bad thing these days, is it?

16 and pregant?!

Hi im kassie i am 16 and still living with my parents and in high school. I think i am pregnant but im still not sure, im only 3 weeks if its true and i truly hope it is :) even though it will complicate my life, i believe strongly that me and my boyfriend will be able to handle it if it turns out good =)
The only problem is i really dont know yet...i have had many of the symptoms but they also happen to be the side effects of the nuva Ring im using..well all execpt a few....i have had massive cravings lately..the other day i have a random craving for baked beans and ended up putting popcorn in it?! and i have had a lot of headaches lately...unusal for me...nd i have been extremely hungry lately...and for the past few weeks i have been waking up in the middle of the night haveing trouble goin back to sleep...and on top of all this i jus FEEL pregnant...i cant explain it...but maybe its because i just want to be...but 3 weeks ago me and my boyfriend had sex w/out a condom..i had my birthcontrol...but i had only been using it for a couple weeks at the time...and ever since i just feel a lot diffrent... any opinions please?

=)) thanks for taking the time to hear my story =)



Hello everyone! Well, after reading tons of these stories, I decided to share mine :) ok, I am 20 yrs old and I have been married for 2 years, I have always wanted a baby and I really felt this time I was pregnant after being dissapointed alot.. My mom got me a test when I was visiting her, and I went to take the test, immediatly the pink little + showed up!!!!!!!!! I took two tests to confirm! :))) YAY. My husband was soooo happy! Well, I am 10 weeks pregnant now and so far it has been VERYhard. I am sick, no appetite, although it has slowly been getting better, but what is worse is that we had to fly to Egypt right after I found out and I will be here 2 months. I am homesick too.. It is so hard being pregnant in a different country! Anyway, I am dying to hear the heartbeat! I feel I am having a boy and am very IMPATIENT waiting to get to 3rd trimester!!!! I wanna see that bump! Well that's my story! I'm here in Egypt anxious to get home to America with my sweetie baby! God willing :)

Best Kept Secret

I am currently a single mom. My daughter is 6 months old, almost 7 months now. I left her father because it was right for us...he was involved in drugs and other illegal activities...things I don't want my daughter exposed to, if I can help it. She is also bi-racial, which is why I kept her a secret. No one knew I was pregnant. I didn't tell anybody till the day I went in labor. Nobody noticed, either. I had no prenatal care whatsoever, but luckily, despite complications, we both are just fine now. Right after she was born, I met another man whom I fell in love with. We were together up until just recently, and we were talking about getting married. Then one day, he just packed his stuff and left. I haven't heard from him since. And now, I think I could be pregnant again, even though I have been on birth control since my daughter was born. I'm having all the signs and symptoms (minus morning sickness). I'm not sure what to do. I'm so scared to even go and get a test, because as long as I don't know, I don't have to deal with it. Once again, I would be a single mother, by a DIFFERENT man, only months after my daughter was born. How did I get myself into this?
