Hi, my name is Kate. Me and my boyfriend have been together for 4 years on and off. This is the first time we've gotten pregnant, and it wasn't what you would call planned. I'm 20 years old and he will be 22 next month. I'm about 6 weeks along now. But my story does't begin with me, it begins with my cousin.
My cousin and her boyfriend just had their daughter Rayna 5 weeks ago. She is precious and everyhthing you would want a daughter to be. My cousin and her boyfriend are living with her parents are doing very well.
So That's 1 Baby.
My other cousin and her husband found out they are due with a blessed baby boy in January. The whole family was so excited when we found out!!! A new baby! How great!!! And a boy baby!! So that means more shopping!!
So That's 2 Babies
My other cousin, I know, a lot of cousins, and her husband found out that they are expecting to have a baby about a month after the second cousin has her little boy. From the last ultrasound they had, they're thinking they're going to be blessed with a beautiful daughter.
That's 3 Babies.
My other cousin, who lives out of state, called about 3 weeks ago to tell us that she and her husband are pregnant again. They now have a son and daughter. And they are both great kids. She is the only one out of us that already has children.
That's 4 Babies.
My other cousin, who is only 2 months older than I, found out she was pregnant about a month ago. She is now 10 weeks, and I'm so excited for her because she is like my sister. I can't wait to meet my niece or nephew!!! She and her boyfriend are on the right track and will make excellent parents!!!
So That's 5 Babies.
Now, me. I am the youngest, except for the first cousin. And I am only 6 weeks along. Me and my boyfriend would like to keep it a secret until our first doctor's appointment which is Oct. 5th. But with such big news, and now 6 new babies added to our family, its kind of hard not to yell out, "I'm pregnant too!" But we're waiting as best as we can. My boyfriend is definately not ready to be a father, but I have wanted to be a mother for a very long time. Wierd I know, since I'm only 20. But I love kids, and my boyfriend is very good with his 4 year old niece, who I adore!!! I'm very excited and I'm just waiting on my boyfriend to jump on my happy train. =] So by summer next year, there will be 6 babies, all under the age of 1, running around. =] How exciting!!! Babies, babies, everywhere!!!!
My little miracleI can still remember when ive always desired a baby from my bby daddy Miguel. Unfortunatly i was always very irregular and having my gyno tell me i wouldnt be able to concieve any time soon strucked me. I cried hard and everyday i felt useless. My bby daddy being there to support helped and well i juz gave it up for a while. It took a year and a half to finally be able to concieve. i still remember the day when i felt sick to my stomach and naseous . Thinkin it was just a stomach virus my bby daddy insisted to juz take a preg test. I didnt want to be dissapointed for like the 15 th time seeing a negative sign . So i juz did anyway and to my shock i was indeed pregnant! I cried in my bby daddys arms of how joyful yet scared i was. Now im 3 months pregnant and happy to be a future bby mama<3 . i guess miracles do happen and joyful ima have my precious beautifal bby soon. All the symptoms are all worth it . I love my lil family <3
My sonI first met my babies father when i was 15 and ever since then i had had a huge crush on him. He was 16 at the time and a grade older, so i assumed he had no interest. But we became close friends and 3 weeks after i turned 16, he and became an offcial couple. Drake wasent a virgin, and i knew that. It's not like he slept with every girl he met but after things got serouise we had "the talk". He told me about his two ex-girlfriends that he had sex with, and i told him about my history with guys, which was 0.
We did had sex after 4 months of dating, and i never regreted it, because we were in love. We always used protection which is why i was so shocked to find out i was pregnant. After i took a at home test, i told Drake and he insisted on going to the doctor. When we did i told the doctor it was impossable that i was pregnant! But she asked if ii had yet to have sex yet, and of course i said yes.
So after finding out i was 8 weeks pregnant the next step was to tell my parents. They werent too happy about it, and they pushed the idea of abortion at me. After i told them it wasent an option, they tried to get me to look at adoption profiles. I said no. Drake's parents were a lot more understanding, they had been teen parents themselves, but not with each other ironically. Drake had an older sister who was 24. She had trouble getting pregnant for the llast 3 years. SO his parents were excepting of having a gradnchild, even if it was by their unmarried 17 year old son.
It was my junior year of highschool when i was walking around with a huge belly. Drake was graduating that year. We got out of school, and drake graudated, just in time for the birth of our son. His due date wasent for another 4 weeks, but he was coming! Aaron Hayden Smith was born July 2. By that time i had started living with Drake and his parents because they had the whole house empty, except for Drake. We had Aarons nursery done by the time i was 30 weeks along, lol needless to say, we were excited. When he was finally here i had my friends by my side to help me get through it.
Drake went to the local college university which was about 40 minutes from our house, but i knew that he was going to go there anyway. Just not with a girlfriend and son living with his parents, he still lived at home of course.
When i was 17, i graduated with my class like i had planned since before i was pregnant. But the difference between my orignal plan and relality was, i had a 11 month old son in the audience sitting with my fiance.
Aaron is now 6 years old, i am now 23 and Drake is 24. We have been married for 5 years (since i was 18) and we are now expecting our second child. I am 10 weeks pregnant and i am honostly happy about the whole thing. Of course i was happy when i had Aaron, but i still really scared. And i know now that i will be able to relax a bit because Drake graudated from the univeristy 2 years ago and i am a nurse and have been for 3 years. So goodluck to all you expecting mothers out there, young or old(er).
I don't knowI am only 20 years old, which is a lot older than a lot of you seem to be, but I planned on waiting until I was at least 25...I planned on finishing my Bachelors and then moving to my Masters...I planned on having a house, a nice car, money to spend...but that all changed, as one would imagine, writing on this website.
I am having trouble deciding what to do. My boyfriend would love to keep it, he has been dreaming of being a father since he was very young. He loves children...we both do.
However, I am not so sure. He is leaving for the Marines a month or two after the due date. I am part way through my bachelor's at a prestigious school. so not only would I be a single mother for months at a time, but I would also be attempting to get through school as well. How is that fair? He gets to go off and do what he always planned while I struggle to get through the most basic of classes? But it is a steady pay check and health insurance. This doesn't even include my family. Their is a very large chance of kicking me out of the family...just getting rid of me, because I embarrass them. My boyfriend's family would weep with joy.
He doesn't understand how badly I want to keep this thing growing inside of me...but he also doesn't understand just how much I will lose if I keep it. I know I will gain a great deal. However, I will also be giving up on my life and my dreams, which watching him achieve his. I don't think that's fair to me and especially not the baby, should I continue to feel this way.
I just don't know what to do...
15 & pregnantI found out 3 weeks ago that i'm pregnant! I couldnt believe it, i mean i could in the sense that, yes, i had sex. But still, i just felt on top of the world. That may sound weird since i'm only 15, but i happy to be a mom. I know that im going to have to give up A LOT but i have the support i need from my boyfriend, my family and his family. I'm only 11 weeks but i know that as soon as he/she gets here, im going to be the best mom and my boyfriend will be the best dad. Thankfully i'll already be 16 and my boyfriend will be 17. I'm going to be in 10th grade when our baby's born. It's not the ideal "perfect family" but i know we'll make it work.
