He was there then he was gone
Well i am 19, and i lived in michigan. I had been datein this guy on and off for about 6 years. Then we decided to move to maryland together. Everything seemed great. Then he got more abusive than normal. But i didnt think anything of it. Then in early december he decided he didnt want me on my pill. But i did. I cotinued to take them but when he found out he threw them away. He was constantly kissin my belly and all that. Then we decided to move to seattle but on the way we were gunna stop at home for a bit. I wish we never did. It went down hill from there. He broke up with me. THen i found out i was pregnant. I hoped it would make him come back to me because i thought that was what he wanted.. Guess i was wrong everytime i see him he punches me or tells me to kill it. Im 10 weeks today and im tryin to be strong but its so hard now that hes just gone.
Single, Pregnant and ConfusedI am 7 weeks pregnant to a friend of mine, we haven't known each other long and this was a complete shock. We only slept together a few times and he is about 10 years older than me, I'm 19. I feel so confused and trapped but I don't feel i can kill my baby. I'm due to give birth around my little brothers Birthday in September '09 I'm excited but i have my babies father threatening to kill himself if i go through with the pregnancy all because he doesn't want to support it financially. I should have thought twice about getting involved with him but now its happened and everyday my baby gets stronger i just have to make the best decisions I can to provide the best life for us. I have to be an adult because my baby's father certainly isn't. All the best to anyone out there who finds themselves in this position.
Being a single mom...Being a Single mom is not easy.. I was one and it was one of the hardest things i ever had to do. so to all you single moms who are pregnant or have a baby. never give up. never give your baby up for abortion or adoption because it will be the biggest mistake you ever made. you make think it is gonna be hard and you will not get through it but trust me you will. when i was pregnant. i did not have anyone there for me except for my mom and she didnt make enough to help me.i didnt have a job and i didnt even get to finsh the 9th grade. And here i am today 17 almost 18. my son is almost 1. i finshed school and have a job. i will not lie it was hard but stay strong everything will fall into place.
13 and pregnanti was 13 years old and with my boyfriend. we were together for about 8 months and had sex for the first time. about 2 months later i kept getting really sick and thought "wat if im pregnant"? but i didnt think it could happen to me so i forgot the whole idea. about 4 weeks later, my stomach was getting a little bit bigger than i was before. i rethought the pregnancy idea. i took a pregnancy test and it was positive. i could not beleive it and i was totally scared! i called my boyfriend and told him to come over to tell him. he came over and i sat him down and told him "im pregnant". he looked at me with a disgusted face and pushed me away and then left. he never talked to me again after that and i was crushed! i didnt kno wat to do.abortion, adoption, keep it? i had to tell my parents so i told them both and they were very angry. i cried all the time and my parents werent happy about me getting pregnant at 13 years old. they asked me wat about abortion? i said no. i then considered adoption but i knew i wasnt giong to be able to let go of my baby once i had it. so i pulled through and kept my baby. it was very hard getting comments and looks from everyone in my school even teachers. my exboyfriend, the father, still has not talked to me but i think that its ok because im doing fine as a single teen mom. my daughter olivia is now 1 years old and i am 14. its very hard but even if u cant think it can happen to u, it can. so to all teen moms out there, stay strong and we'll all make it through! <33
