Cheating while Pregnant
After realizing after my first trimester that I was pregnant, I started feeling strange towards my baby father, it was so often that it felt like I didn't want him anymore and then after a couple of weeks, I found myself falling for this other guy, I tried so hard to resist it but the guy was not helping either. he was giving me all sorts of attention and warmth, something I thought I never received from my partner at the time anymore, then I went to the father of my baby and told him I need us to take a break, that i couldn't carry on anymore and I felt more pressure, i told him that everything was too much for me and I need to just take time to myself and think things through, and he understood me but was not keen to let me go but I insisted and told him I will come back to him immediately everything settled in and I got used to the idea of being pregnant.
he was very excited that he is finally going to be a dad at 24 yrs, although it was overwhelming, but he was very supportive and all.
Days passed in the break, and I was already seeing that guy I was flirting with. Deep down I knew that what i was doing was wrong and that the guy I was cheating with will eventually grow bored of me because he didn't love me but I continued anyway. My baby daddy was still checking up on me hoping I'd say I'm ready and I want us to continue, but hey I was too busy entertaining the cheat.
Then eventually he found out that I was cheating on him, it was then that I realized that I had to stop what I was doing and return to my love, my baby daddy, but I didn't in fact I told him straight in the eye that I will never dump the guy I was cheating with, I don't even know what I was doing then and I still don't know up to this day. everything happened quickly in one month and I didn't know that I was pushing the love of my life away forever. he was very hurt and even started suspecting that my baby was not his, it got so bad that he didn't even tell his parents about my pregnancy until a month away from giving birth, he didn't want to talk to me, but I forced him because I realized after my second trimester that I made the biggest mistake of my entire life and it was hard for him to forgive me, I was left alone, sad, angry, and bitter.
I wanted a second chance, but it was just so hard for him to forgive me. and that is how I became a single parent...
Do NOT Give UpIn June after 8th grade, I found out that I was pregnant.
During 8th grade, I saw my older friends who were already in high school that were getting pregnant and promised myself that would never be me. When it was confirmed that I was pregnant, I didn't know what to do. I was in a great private school and wanted to go to college, become a teacher, and then have a family with the right guy. It obviously did not turn out as planned, but I am now thankful that it didn't.
I was with my boyfriend for 5 months before we decided to have sex and yes we used protection. He was a great guy and said he loved me, but when I finally had the guts to tell him after 3 months of being pregnant he totally freaked out. His family even moved halfway across the country to get away from me and my baby. This really discouraged me so I went into a really deep depression.
When I told my mom, she was disappointed for the first couple of days. She then told me that she realized that groping wasn't going to help the situation so she gave me my options. On the other hand, my dad, who was always my biggest supporter, completely shut me out. I was so crushed that I thought about having an abortion and now I am so glad I didn't. When I was going into my second trimester, my dad finally caved and told me how sorry he was for shutting me out of his life. However, during this 3 months, my parents got a divorce over the issue. I always felt like it was my fault until I found out that they had already been fighting before this.
Whenever I started showing at school, people still did not know. I eventually came clean during an biography that I wrote about myself and my journey through this pregnancy. There was one group of people who bullied me about it, but never actually tried to physically hurt me. When I was 25 weeks in, one of them tried to molest me under the bleachers (still pregnant) until someone heard me screaming as he was trying to stick his hand in my underwear. The guy who saved me turned out to be the quarterback of our team. He is in 11th grade. He is now my fiance, but we have decided to wait to get married until after high school. He is very supportive and loves my baby as if she was his.
Now to present time, I am a loving mother of a newborn baby girl and engaged to the best guy in the world. Do people judge us? Yes. Did I lose people close to me? Yes. Would it have been easier to wait until after school and for the right person? Definitely. Do I regret it? No. If it wasn't for her, I would probably be using up my free time getting in trouble. My daughter is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Losing a love.Hi im tamera and when i was 16 i got pregnant from reckless one night stand and when i was 4 months pregnant i sadly lost my baby i found out before i lost the baby it was a boy , the father told to me get an abortion an i said no im don't believe in it , i ended up stressing about the pressure from him and not being financially stable so i ended up having a miscarriage, and i got really depressed my baby would have been 2 years in april and it still breaks my heart. But sense then i moved forward and have my life together like i should have when i was pregnant.
My point is girls who are having sex please be careful, because being a teen mom is hard mentally and physically. Having a baby or losing a baby changes you forever, so girls be very extra careful.
