Keep us informed about your first pregnancy experiences, especially those pregnancy symptoms, fetal development, and, of course, your baby's first ultrasound! We can't wait to hear from you!
I was dating my boyfriend since our freshman year in highschool we made it all the way to graduation and by that time we were together for 3 years. Our junior years we actually talked about planning a pregnancy and how wonderful it would be to have a baby together. But then we realized we were talking crazy. Our senior year we started getting ready for graduation and college. My parents were very strict when it came to school and took me on lots of college campus tours! After seeing all the schools i was so excited and couldnt wait! I am the 2nd elsdest of 4 kids and honestly i was the most behavied and responsible one (so far) so after an acceptance letter came in from this university i REALLY wanted to attend, my parents were so proud of me. A few weeks later my boyfriend got a acceptance letter from the same university! We were both excited to being going to the same school,but then the next day i missed my period and he bought me a test. It was positive and i had to tell my mom,she was dissapointed but very very supportive. My dad however didnt allow me to see my boyfriend the 1st 3 months of my pregnancy. But later my dad became more understanding. My boyfriend and i graduated high school, he attended all of the doctor visits. We both live at home with my parents and his mom watches our son (7 months now) during the day because we both work. and we are both managing to attend Community college. So thank god for the support of our families and the love we still have for each other! And we love coming home everyday to our beautiful son and all of our family members are there for our son he is blessed to have a big family that loves him so much!
is this normal ?I am 16 yrs old, 17 in November, I am about to start my last yr of high school. I got one of the captains and Iím so happy. I have a happy family even though my parents are divorced. Iím a twin and I have an older brother. I have an amazing boyfriend that although it may sound cliché I really wants to be with him for the rest of m life and I know he feels the same. His 2 yrs older than I am. Recently our family found out that my mum has breast cancer. She only turned 50 in May. I was the first to know out of the whole family. My mum said I could deal with it because I am strong. I wasnít allowed to tell anyone, especially my sister because she is very emotional. And yes when my sister found out she was a wreck. Although sometimes I want to cry when I see my sister upset I feel as though I have to stay strong for her and I do, but itís hard. When no one is around I go and I cry, but no one can see me. Iím having sex with my boyfriend and about 3 months ago I had the implanon contraception inserted in my arm. Everyone in my family knew I have been having sex expect my mum. Lately I have been feeling like I want to have a baby with my boyfriend. I know I can do it, it know that my boyfriend and I would be able to love, support and give our child the best life. He works full time and supports his family at his house. About a week ago we had a pregnancy test because I skipped a period. I was scared but then m mind and heart was praying and hoping I was pregnant. When I went to the doctors and heard ďits negativeĒ my stomach sunk and I held the tears back. When I went out of the doctorís office I just went into my boyfriends arms and cried. He is so supportive for me and will always be there for me. I have been crying for days that Iím not pregnant and I canít be because on contraception. I have thought so long and hard about having a baby that Iíve even been considering taking out the contraception so I can get pregnant. I finally told my parents how I have been feeling and they say I need help; they make me feel like Iím the weirdest person in the world. Whatís wrong with me bringing a child into the world that had a father, which I can love unconditionally and no one can take off me? That child will be a symbol of me and my boyfriends love. If I can raise and support my child, whatís wrong with me not having one? Iím aware of what Iíd have to give up. I have goals in my life and I will get there even if I have a baby. A baby is not a consequence, but a gift. I want to have a baby with my boyfriend, something to call ours, to give my love to.
Being Young, And Being In LoveHi, my name is Alexia, I'm 16 almost 17 years old. I've been dating my boyfriend Landon for a few years, and we just got really serious maybe 6 months ago. One night nobody was home, and it was just Landon and I. We couldn't resist ourselves so we started fooling around, one thing led to another and we did it. We continued to do it almost every time we were together because we knew how to be very quiet. And about a week ago, I started noticing my belly growing, and I missed 3 periods, but I didn't want to worry my mom so I didn't say a word. Well, when the morning sickness started I got really scared, and my boyfriend, who is 18 took me to the doctor and sure enough they said I was 4 months pregnant, and in a week I can find out the gender of my baby. Telling my family was hard, but theyre very supportive. Landon is also supportive. I feel really lucky, even though I'm just a teen, i know I have it better than some pregnant teens.
16 and Pregnant?Hi, I'm Allie. I'm 16 and I came across this website while researching pregnancy. I really think that I am pregnant. My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 5 months now. We had sex for the first time on July 11th and it's now July 29th. I know it was stupid but we did it unprotected thinking that if he pulled out in time, I wouldn't get pregnant. We thought because getting pregnant from pre-ejaculation was so rare we would be safe. I was also on one of the last days of my period. A couple weeks later, I started spotting which has actually never happened to me before, so I went to Google and looked up if you can get pregnant while on your period.. It turns out, you can if you run a longer period since sperm can stay in the body for 5 to 7 days and running a longer period can make ovulation closer to the time you had sex. Well then I looked up the spotting (not knowing that it was a sign of pregnancy), I found out that it is commonly referred to as "implantation bleeding". Well the spotting occurred about a week before my period was due and it was very slight and it was a brownish color so I am almost certain that it is implantation. I've also been pretty nauseas and very tired. On top of all of that, I have a gut feeling that I am pregnant. I have talked to my boyfriend about this and despite being scared, he is ready to take responsibility if that test comes up positive. He says that he still loves me and he will love me no matter what happens. His only fear is being forcefully taken away by his parents because they live out of town and are going to flip if I am pregnant. But he is ready for this. The spotting stopped a couple days ago but the nausea and fatigue is still present and also cramping. My period isn't due for a few more days. My question is, should I take a test this weekend or wait to see if my period comes or not?
17 and pregnant.When I was 17 I got my first proper boyfriend. His name was Andrew and he was 18. I quickly began to fall head over heels in love with him. We had been together for 6 months when we decided to have sex. A few months had passed and I started to feel nautious all the time. My mum told me she wanted me to take a pregnancy test but I told her there was no way I could be pregnant because we used a condom. I took the test and found out that I was infact 9 weeks pregnant with Andrew's baby.
I was scared but I told Andrew and his family and they were disappointed at first but said they would support us no matter what. Then I told my parents. My mum was so happy and supportive but my dad didn't talk to me for days. Finally he told me he accepted the pregnancy and would help us out however he could.
My pregnancy was fairly normal and I barely had any morning sickness. At 25 weeks Andrew and I decided to find out the sex of the baby, it was a boy! At 38 weeks I was enormous, and one night I woke up with really bad stomach pains. I stood up to go to the bathroom and realised my water had broken. I woke up Andrew and he rushed me to the hospital while I called our parents to tell them.
On November 22nd 2010 I gave birth to a healthy 7pounds 3oz baby boy Caleb James Watson.
Being a teen mum is hard but my baby boy is my whole world and I wouldn't change a thing. Andrew and I are still together and Caleb is now 8 months old and so clever.
