My baby girlhi, im Korrinne im 19 years old and i have a 5 yr old son, and my 1 yr old daughters. I got pregnant wen i woz 12 by my stepdad and i didnt tell anyone but i had a misscarige when i woz 3months. My mum and stepdad broke up (but i still didnt tell them) a few months later. about two years later i got a new boyfriend called carl who i loved wiv all my heart. He was sixteen then and i woz fourteen but we had sex and i got pregnant, but i dint tell him.When i woz 5monthes i told him and we broke up becuz he said that the baby woznt his. I cried all the time and gave birth to my son Jaydon on march 22nd. My parents kicked me out of the house and i lived on the streets for a few months before social services found me. Me and jaydon got moved to a foster care house where the family made me work on the streets and i got pregnant again , but i had an abortion becuz i cudnt live wiv someone elses baby. I ran away from the foster house but they found me and made me work on the streets again and got me addicted to heroin. I got pregnant again but i decided that i wanted to be clean for my baby so i stopped doing drugs and working on the streets and told social services about what the family made me do. They put me in a new home where i gave birth to twin girls, Holly and Kandille. I love my babies and cant belvie i ever wanted an abortion.
16 and pregnantwell im 16 and 35 weeks pregnant, it all started at the start of 5th form and i fell for this guy and i thought our relationship ment alot more then just sex but once he found out i was pregnant he questioned weather it was his child and started abusing me so ive been alone through this pregnancy, i told my parents and my parents told his because he wouldnt they were angry at first but now they are really supportive. the father of my son talks to me whenever he feels like it now, im still in love with him and im hoping that we can end up being back together with our son as a family im also doing corrospondense so i can get my ncea credits and hoping to go to uni after that. to other young mums to be, keep your heads up it may not get any easier but you just got to find your way through!!
my pregnancywell i have been a single mom through out my whole pregnancy and now my beautiful childs life. the father of the child decided to leave me because he wasnt ready for a kid. I was 15 when i had my baby and im now 16 and my baby has been such a blessing. Unlike some of the pregnant teens who drop out of high school i went to a school where they watched your baby and i am still in school. lainie has been a very good baby and those at some points i struggle i know i am a good mom. My mom and dad werent to happy that i was having a kid at the age of 15,but about 6 months in they got over it and starting supporting me, I live at home with them and my brothers and sister. they all love her. I have ajob so i can at least put food in her tummy and give her toys and clothes. When i found out i was prego i wasnt very happy actually i was scared more than anything and abortion kept going through my mind but then i really thought about it and killing a baby that is not born yet is just like murder so kept her nad dealt with her father[justin] NOT supporting it because i know that god would be right beside me. And yes it is hard but you can get through it just like i did. So i give props to all you teen parents and single moms. But if there are young teens use protection or wait untill you want to be sexualy active. Love Ana and Lainie nicole ottosin
