Unplanned/Unexpected Happy Surprise
I met a guy on the 1st of December 2007. I really liked him but on the 14th December we had a silly argument and I told him I never wanted to see him again. The next morning a friend got me the Morning After Pill. After she left I stood in my kitchen with the pill in my hand unsure as to whether to take it. Something inside me told me that I would be aborting a baby and it felt wrong. I decided that I couldn't do it and left it up to fate. I was 18 and thought to myself, "am I being really irresponsible?" I was at college studying Health and Social Care, working in a kids adventure world and my whole life seemed to be filled with children. I have a huge family with 11 nieces and nephews and was an active role in their upbringing. I felt that I was brilliant with kids and that I could do it. I didn't mind doing it alone. Three weeks later my period was very late and I just knew. I went to my Doctors, then my local family planning clinic, then to a supermarket where I bought 6 HPT's.
My sister came to my flat and was there as I waited for a result. Even though I had decided to take that chance and knew that I would cope I still cried. My sister had had her baby boy when she was 17 and had always told me to wait until I was married, had a career. However, she put her arms around me, laughed and cried with me then started to scream that she was so excited! It was exactly what I needed.
I told my Mum the following day and she remarked how 'lucky' it had been that I'd babysat for my family over Christmas rather than going out and how 'lucky' it was that I'd given up smoking. Little did she know that I had already known I was pregnant, intuition I guess.
I was worried about the response I would get from others and I was vexed because so many women in loving settled homes couldn't have children and here I was - getting pregnant by accident.
Thankfully most people were happy. My Mum was a bit annoyed but she was married and pregnant by the time she was 18 and understood. I'm the youngest and my Dad just shook his head and repeated, "My baby is having a baby" for a few hours. He didn't speak directly to me for three weeks. He later told me that I'd always seemed to be the smartest in the family and that he thought I would have gone away and earned a fortune in a good job!
My daughter was an 'accident' but she has changed me in a way I never expected. I'm a proud Mummy, my house is clean, my daughter has developed an aversion to chips and greasy foods like I've taught her and loves nothing more than a bowl full of potatoes, carrots, steak and peas!
And her Daddy is fantastic. Although we are not together and have both moved on into other relationships we get on really well and our daughter knows that she's loved by both, although I say that I love her the most!
Thanks for taking the time to read my story!
Sophomore and possibly expectingI am 16 years old. So my boyfriend(15) and I just strted to have sex and 2 times we used the "pull out" method. The third time we used a condom well just our luck the condom broke. So now it has been a few weeks and I just feel pregnant. I know that sounds crazy but that is how I feel. Well, one night I decided to talk to my boyfriend (Andrew) about the possiblity of me being pregnant. At first he said that if I was he would be there for me and then next thing I know he started getting all upset and started freaking out me claiming this was all my fault. So he started saying he would leave me. And then when he calmed down a bit he said he would stay and he wont be going any where. I don't know what to believe anymore. So then my mom randomly texts me "are you pregnant?" (Only people knew about the scare are Andrew and I) and I said why are you asking and her response "because the lady that reads tarat cards for me told me that my oldest daughter is pregnant with a little girl"... S o I confused up everything to her and she wasn't mad at all. And she said if I was and if my dad and stepmom kicks me out that I could come and live with her. So now that she has told that the lady who read her cards said this I got so scared! So I told Andrew everything that my mom told me and he was freaking out(scared). So I told him to calm down and that everything is going to be okay. He wants to tell his mom everything that is going on but his mom is pretty scary so I told him not to unless I was and he agreed. Andrew has told me that if I am pregnant that he wants me to get an abortion and I told him tht is out of the picture because I am against abortions. And he got mad and said he has the decision to make so I told no he didnt because it is my decision to get an abortion or not and he got mad about it. So I told him straight up that I would rather raise my child as a sing mother than get an abortion. Which I think he understood that no matter what he said it wasnt goning to change my mind.( I am a very subburn person)... As much as I love Andrew I would much rather be a single mother than getting an abortion and staying with him. I know I am way to young to have sex and to be worried about being pregnant...but things happen for a reason!!! Good luck to all those teen moms out there!
ExcitedHey. I'm Rachel I'm 18 & 8months pregnant now. I'm having a baby boy named Jonathan Jessie. Mi and mi boyfriend have been together for 3yrs I met him when I was 14 and he was 18. We were on n off for the first 2yrs. I had been pregnant by him once before but I miscarriaged. I didn't tell him for along time and when he did find out he blamed me but we always loved each other and got through it. I moved in with him a year ago and I never got pregnant. Than in June when I was waiting to start the pill I got pregnant. What a shocker haha. Now me and him are excited and awaiting our son to be born. I plan to write again after my birth.
14&pregnant!!!Today, I felt kicking in my belly. I was very surprised. I had been taking a test at my academy class.I asked to go to the nurse.she didn't know what it was. I went to the hospital after. They said that the head was right there. I was like WHERE? And they told me to calm down until my parents came. And I was like MY PARENTS? What is so important that they can't tell me? When my dad got there, the doctor talked to him. When my dad came out of the office, he looked disappointed. He yelled at me for having sex with my boyfriend, Eric. I mean I did invite him over and let him sleep with me. But I didn't have sex with him! I was 36 weeks and I never even knew. We couldn't been afford for a test. I was due soon so I decided to stay in the hospital. I started vomiting. Then I saw Eric running down the hospital hall. I was so surprised. He touched my belly and said sorry. I said I was glad to have the baby. Then he took out a RING and proposed to me. I honestly didn't think that it was the best time but I was still happy to get engaged.
