She's Worth it All

I'm sixteen years old and full term. I'm ready to see my little girl .But i remember when I first found out I was pregnant. I was scared and didn't know what to do.The first person I told was my boyfriend, which would be the baby's father.He was scared too, but he was happy.We didn't know what to do.I didn't know how to tell my family or how to tell his.So we didn't. I went to bed thinking about how my life was going to change and how Ill be a mother really soon to how i was going to tell my fam and his fam and when. Days went by..then weeks and weeks became months.I still couldn't tell them.I know how disappointed they'd be in me.I knew they wouldn't be happy and I knew they would flip out. But I couldn't hide the morning sickness and not having a period and my pale face much longer.I stayed in my room most the time and wore big clothes and sometimes even my boyfriends clothes so they wouldn't notice my belly.

One day when we were on our way home from school, they told me they wanted me to take a pregnancy test when I got home. I tried to get out of it I even put water on it thinking it would make it negative. But they found out the big positive sign that didn't go away.They weren't happy at all and didnt talk to me for 4 or 5 days.We barely even looked at each other and they said I couldn't see the babys father anymore, which was hard because Ive been with her father over 2 years. As time went by they accepted it and now they couldn't be any happier.I am still with my baby's father and he has stuck beside me on everything along with my family. I dont think iI could do it without them. Its really hard to do now and shes not even here.I know that I got have a lot ahead of me and I know I'll have a baby to take care of for the rest of my life, but Im willing to do that. Shes deff. worth everything and I would give anything for her shes my life and isnt even here yet.But I had to go to the Dr as soon as possible because I didnt even know how far along I was. I thought maybe 3 months but I was 5 months.

Being a teenager and being pregnant is hard, but I wouldn't change a thing. I dont regret getting pregnant with her; I regret not waiting and having her later on. She'll be here any day now and I wouldn't change that. My family is supportive and so is my boyfriend's family.Their going to watch her while I go to school and I'm taking nursing classes over the summer. I'm trying to do all I can and so is her father.We both plan on finishing high school and going to college. I know its going to be hard but i know we can do it:)


Toughest decision of my life.

i was 15 when i first found out i was pregnant. i was shocked, scared, i had no idea what to think or do. my mom was a teen parent, & she had always told me to raise myself above that.
i was scared that when i told my mom, she would be disappointed in me, & she was. i had let her down.
my baby's dad was there for me, although i'm not sure he took it as serious as i did. we'd been dating for 5 years, on & off. he was a smart kid, all good grades. scholarships to college his junior year for baseball and football. he wanted to join the National Guard. i knew i loved him & we'd already talked about marriage. we weren't really smart about the whole protection thing but we never thought it would happen to us.
i wasn't good in school, i wanted to do my own thing all the time. i was nervous & scared but at the same time it was apart of me, there was no way i would let my baby go.
but in the end i had to.
cody had so much to look forward to in life, i couldn't tie him down like that. & i wasn't doing my best. i could barely support myself, let alone a child.
so i chose to get an abortion.
it was the hardest thing i think i've ever had to do, it's been a year & still i have nightmares. i can't stand to see happy people holding their babies.
sometimes me & cody talk about it, & everytime we ask ourselves "what if" but i know i did the right thing, not only for me & cody but for the baby.
i couldn't have supported the baby the way any normal parents could have. & cody and i are still together, we still plan on getting married & living with each other, & one day eventually having another baby.
i still have my babies papers & ultrasound, i look at it every now & again.
but i know that we weren't ready.
& a baby would have only strained our relationship, were happy together still & i plan on making the most of that.
one day, we'll be a family though, just like it should have been.


Will it ever happen?

I guess that is a question so many people ask, will it ever happen? Can I get pregnant? When should I go to the Dr and talk about IVF? WHY ME? Everyone else just looks at their partners and gets pregnant...

Questions I often asked myself. We got married in 2005 and started trying for a baby pretty much right away. Month after month, the rollercoaster ride of thinking I was pregnant only to get my period... going to the toilet to find out, nope not this month. It got to the point where having to do the 'act' to conceive lost all it's spark because it became more about having a baby than about being with my hubby.

So, after two years, we decided to put it on hold whilst I focused on work. As we knew when the 'right' time was to conceive, it also meant we knew the 'safe' time. So for the first time in 2 years... we had sex in the 'safe time'.

I was on business in another city when I purchased my favourite bottle of wine... I went back to my hotel room and poured myself a glass... but it didnt taste right, in fact, it was horrible and that is when it hit me.

The very first month of deciding to put our baby plans on hold... we had conceived. I was alone in a hotel room with a 'stick' that would change my life and I couldnt tell anyone. So I kept it to myself until I got home from my business trip.

That was 2 and a half years ago. We now have a beautiful baby boy. Im not sure I want to go back and ride that rollercoaster again, it can be soul destroying if you allow it to be so Im keen on just allowing life to take its own path and Ill be totally happy with the little blessing I have... he is so perfect.

My advice to anyone in a similar situation is THROW AWAY all your 'devices, tests, books and calendars. Dont give up hope but please please please, dont be too consumed about the right or wrong time to try, we conceived on day 8... not long after my period had finished.

It's so easy to say 'dont worry' but you will and you do worry, all I can say is dont plan...



I'm 23 and have been with my partner for nearly 3 years. Previously we did not talk about starting a family, but lately it has been all about building a life together. We have had our ups and downs, but in the end we still find that we are most comfortable in each other's arms.

We have been sexually active for almost as long as we are together. And we never used any protection, just the most natural way which was pulling-out. We have been safe so far; I never got pregnant. We were not trying before this, but currently we are and have been trying for a month.

We really want to have a baby to sort of to 'seal our deal'. We both have stable jobs currently and are already planning to build a new room in our home for our future little one. We are keeping our fingers crossed for me to successfully conceive.

We are praying hard, but not getting too hopeful. In our eyes, we just tell each other "if it happens, it happens". There's no stopping us.
