Being young and pregnant
Life seemed like it was going really well. I had an awesome boyfriend, and we had been going out for quite a long time. I had a lot of friends and we partied every night. I was always drunk, and I liked it like that. I started being sexual with guys when I was 12 and I lost my virginity when I was 14. So sex wasn't anything new to me. Even though I was kind of a little whore, at least thatís what others would call me; my boyfriend and I still tried to be careful. When my mom found out we were having sex she put me on the pill. After that we just stopped using condoms.
Then after like a year I got off the pill, for a reason I can't even remember. We just never got back into using protection, especially when I started partying a lot and was usually drunk when we got intimate. It was a huge shock to me when I found out I was pregnant, on Easter 2007. I couldn't believe it; I didn't think the test was going to come out positive when I took it. I was so scared to tell my parents, since they are very proper. I cried the whole day after finding out. When I told my mom she was very supportive. I could tell she was sad but she held it in. I cried for a couple weeks, and my boyfriend didn't really show any emotion. I really didn't want to have a baby especially when I am only 17.
After my boyfriend and I saw the ultrasound we started to get a little excited. I can tell now that he really wants to be a daddy. I am 27 weeks, and we are having a girl. My man and I just got married, and I just graduated from high school. We are going to be okay. We have money, and we have lots of love. I am happy, but sometimes I just need to cry. I always find myself thinking about what Iím missing out on. I wish I could actually experience my senior year, but I have to deal with the consequences. This year I've gone through a lot.
I've had to watch my dad ruin his life, and his familyís life. My mom has had a hard time. Sometimes I feel like his addiction is because of me. Sometimes I feel like my familyís problems are because of me. At the moment I just really want my little girl out. Sheís heavy, and itís hard to breath, and I'm tired of her kicking non-stop. I still have a couple months, and I am not looking forward to them. I am due on Dec 14, 2007.
Just into my next trimesterI had quite a scare in my first trimester as I bled at seven weeks but my baby is fine.
I had a scan at 8 weeks and heard its heartbeat at 12 weeks. Iím going for my 15-week-scan on Monday. Iím going to get my first picture of my little baby.
Feeling like I am going to pass outI was sick with nausea the whole first trimester and into the second trimester. Seriously like maybe 2-3 hours of the day would I feel okay. I kept hearing about how better I am supposed to feel in my second trimester. Oh no!
Now the nausea has subsided slightly but I have this awful feeling of passing out if I stand too long or even when I am sitting. I get really hot my body temp seems like it goes up and I have this feeling of dizziness and like I am going to pass out.
I have an 11 year old and I never felt like this. I know each pregnancy is different but is this normal?
Only 13 weeksI'm 19 and on my first baby I am hoping that's it's a boy. But my boyfriend wants a girl. I have heard a lot of times the woman may ask for one sex and get the opposite.
I'm so nervous when my time comes..
22 weeksHi, I'm Bree & I'm 19, married, and having a wonderful baby girl! I've had an easy pregnancy so far; not much morning sickness or anything like that - HOORAY!
I am very stressed out over our financial situation though, and I hope it won't affect the baby :( But my husband and I are super excited and cant wait for our lil girl to get here!! **mUaH**
