Being a MOM
I was 17 yrs old and it was my second day of camp, on a class trip I had a boyfriend at that time. We were together for two yrs .He would always say lets go to the room and do something fun. I knew that he wanted to have sex with me.We did. One week later I was at school and it was lunch time. I was feeling sick so I called my mother to pick me up. My mother and I went to the doctor and the doctor told my mother that I was pregnant. PREGNANT??? My mother asked me questions about who the father was. I told her; she didn't like him at all. I texted my boyfriend and told him I was pregnant. He said OK, lets work things out. You're going to have the baby and we're going to be together till death. I was not happy when he told me that. When I was six months pregnant, I found out the sex of the baby. It was boy. When he was born he looked just like me. We were happy. Now he is three yrs old and I love children. I hope I have more in the future, but for now I love being a mom to one...awww.
Hanging in There....Hey everyone! Well to start off, when my husband and I got together I was 14 and he was 17. On our 4th anniversary, when I was 18 and he was 21 we got married. That was June 08 I started on the BC patch in Oct 07 and stayed on it until Dec 08. I got off BC, we wanted to start trying. Well I lost my job and that put things on hold until July 09. We started trying then and now its Jan 10 and still no baby. I'm 20 and he's 22, will be 23 in Feb. I tried the ovulation strips for about 6 weeks but I didn't think they were helping that much so I quit with them. I have been watching my CM and paying very close attention to my periods. I get disappointed when I see all the girls my age I went to school with having babies left and right and living off the state, while my husband and I both have full time jobs. We both go to school and have lived on our own since I was 18 and he was 20. We have our own house and feel that we are ready for a baby. We have talked about it quite a bit. We know that there is never the "perfect" time to have a baby, but we are stable and want to expand out family. I have always had a feeling I'd say since I was 12 that we would have trouble conceiving. I can't explain it. We want a little bundle of joy so bad it hurts! We are ready for the dirty diapers and the sleepless nights and the crying and throwing up. One thing before I forget. I got my period early in May 09 and it lasted for 6 weeks. The Dr put me on provera to regulate them, but I only did that 2 months. Do you think that might have something to do with it? Any advice on how to cope with no baby yet? Any old wives tales that have worked for anyone would be greatly appreciated. Lacey
My 1st OneMy name is Imelda and I'm 17 years old. I'm now 7 months pregnant and I'm having a little boy. When I first found out I was pregnant, I was surprised. I never expected something so young, I mostly liked going out and having fun with my friends, and was always leaving my house- I would be gone for weeks. So I had a home boy named Jesus. I've known him since I was in 4th grade, but he was just a friend. So when we we were in 8th grade, we actually started going out to see if it worked out and it didn't. We broke up like after 2 weeks. I did like him but i guess it was just him. We stopped talking for a while. A couple of years later, in my sophomore year I left my house. I would go chill with him and the home boys. So one day he said I could stay at his house so i said OK I would. So I did, and what I had never expected to happen, happened. I was shocked. I had never expected that. We started talking more- things got serious and after a couple of months I loved him alottttt. He was my world he was my everything. But the worst part was that he was with some other girl at the time. I actually thought they were never going to break up, even though he would say he loved me, he was still with her. My hopes were just getting worse. I was actually just planning on giving up but b4 I did he finally left her. We had already been together for like 3 months. Things got much better after that. So like around June is when it actually happened. I got pregnant. I was scared but happy at the same time. When I told him he was excited as well. I'm so happy that we ended up together. Who would of ever known?! Now I'm 7 months pregnant and I'm due on March 24 2010. I love my boy friend with all my heart and he's always there for me.
Time Flies...Hi Guys, I'm Maxine and I found out I was pregnant in March last year. I am 14 years old... and yes, it's a VERY YOUNG age to get pregnant. It only took me a month to realize I was pregnant. I showed signs early. My birthday is on the 15th of March and I had my birthday party on the 5th of March, which is when I had sex. My brother's best friend, A, is my life. I love him to death, even though he's 16. He is a very responsible person and very sweet. We did it at my party and we BOTH decided to. I told him on the 1st April and he's staying with me but we still broke up. We're best friends again. He supported me through my pregnancy and was even there on the 18th of December when my baby girl, Delilah Alexandra, was born. She is very healthy and my parents are gonna look after her until I finish my schooling and can provide for her. I went to school, pregnant, until the eighth month. I stopped on the 4th of November. I am well, and am going to be 15 on the 15th ofMarch.
I still can't believe, I got pregnant when I was 13... Two weeks later, I was 14. Wow...
Anyway... Good luck to all the mothers out there. Just know, you're not the only one going through all this...
Babies : )1 year ago afer trying for 5 months I finally found out I was prego! I was on birth control for 5 months before trying, so I figured thats was why it took 5 months. I just knew I was this time. I had heartburn, abdominal cramps, hot flashes, food cravings, nausea, tiredness & no period. My baby is almost 5 months now. 2 months ago I had a miscarriage while on the pill. Well the type of pill I was on changes the lining of the uterus making it hard for the fertilized egg to attach. The doctor told me this is probably what caused my miscarriage. From that day on I wanted another baby. I was only on birth control for a month, so I didn't take it anymore & we started trying. This is the first month of trying & I want to be prego so bad. I feel as if I am, but I don't want to get my hopes up. I have the same symptoms I had with my 1st pregnancy & my miscarriage. I also heard you're more fertile after giving birth. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm supposed to start my period in 2 days, so I will know soon enough.
