from bad to worse to the best thing to ever happen
I was 16 and found out i was 5 wks pregnant. my boyfriend and i decided to terminate the pregnancy, but as soon as i went though with it i knew i did the wrong thing. i carried on with my life as i did before i fell pregnant, drinking, partying with friends like teenagers do. Then i found out i was still pregnant at 3 months, i just thought i wasnt getting my period because the abortion had stuffed up my tummy but i really was stil pregnant. i went and had another ultrasound and it was the same pregnancy, my baby was a twin and was in my folopian tubes while the other baby got terminated, the survivor dropped down out of my tubes days after the abortion. i decided at that time that this was happening for a reason and i kept my little miricle. i have been through a few more tests then the regular pregnancy and everything seems to be going fine. Im having a little boy. Im 30 weeks pregnant and am soo happy i kept my little boy. i couldnt live with not having him. he is a part of me now, feeling him kick is the most amazing feeling. i created life and almost blew it away because i thought i was too young for this responsiblity but im not, im copping so well. But sure you get dirty looks from people walking past but i've learnt not to mind. they have no idea what i've been though. my little boy is the best thing to ever happen to me. To everyone that's pregnant and young don't worry you can do it. don't ruin a babies chance to live.
My baby is my world already and he hasn't even arrived yet.
teen mommy of the most amazing little girl :)April twenty first, two thousand seven is a day that will forever be inbedded in my memory. I was sixteen years old.The day I pee'd on at least five pregnancy tests with my best friend beside me, all of them positive. The boyfriend, Ryan, was the next one to know. I remember crying in his arms for hours, the same stunned look on his face as though I had paused time. Next in line where the parents, which didn't go well. Abortion was suggested, and both Ryan and I where strongly against it, so that was shortly no longer an option. Not to long later the desicion was made that we would keep our child. Ryan got a job, and I started babysitting. Our families were very much involved, helping so much more than I could've asked for. I continued to go to school, I was ridiculed and lost many friends. I had to quit cheerleading, and even the teachers gave me dirty looks and whispered as I walked by. With out my siblings, family, and the friends that stuck by me I don't think I would have made it through. March third, at 2:47 AM, Haylee Sophia Marie took her first breath. No words could describe the love for my daughter. It hasn't been easy, and I know the future only holds more bumps in the road. But looking at her sweet face makes it all worth it.
So, young mommies out there, you CAN do it. And your child loves you, and believes in you. As do I! I know what you're going through, and I know its hard. But looking at your babies smiling face will make everything better, you know it.
My daughter is my reason for breathing, and I love her more than any expression could ever show.
Haylee, mommies little Macaroni: I love you baby girl, and I would give the world for you. You're mommas' whole world sweetheart.
It made my life betterI had known my children's father for 10 years before I got pregnant. When I had both of my children, Gabriel (2-9-05) and Alyssa (1-15-06), I finally realized he never really loved me, much less, like me. He used to hit me while I was pregnant and while I was holding my son. When he finally left me, it was because he had gotten another girl pregnant, I never thought I would find a man who would love me and my children, like this man SHOULD HAVE!!!
But I am very lucky. I had my son at 15 and my daughter 11 months later at 16. I did finish school, I felt like I had to throw something in everyones face. But that wasn't good enough.
I am now 19 years old with two beautiful children. I did graduate high school and I am now in my 2nd semester of college. I am very happily married to a man that I never thought I could love, named David. He isn't my children's biological father, but he is definitely their REAL father. He loves them as if they were his own. We recently got married on January 25, 2008.
Everyone always told me that I would ruin my live, and I know and believe that having children, saved my life. I am the happiest woman alive, and that is what I throw in everyones face. TAKE THAT EDWIN!!! I'm finally happy and you can't bring me down!!! HA!!!
my life and my kidsI'm only 15 and I'm about to be a mother of 4 kids. My first child is named kyle he is 5 months and my daughter is 4 months. Now i'm pregnant with twins. i am a single mom i have to raise my kids on my own. my parents had kicked me out when they found out i was pregnant with my first child so they hate me now.
I am doing very well on my own. i go to school and i work. i am starting to see the father of the two i'm about to give birth too. He wants to be with me and my babies and i know that it is going to be hard but i'm ready for the challenge. i can say that i regret having children so young but having my kids is the best thing that has ever happend to me. i love them so much cuz i know that i will never be alone because i will always have my kids. My twins are a boy and a girl.
keep your head uphi, well i have already written my story on here its 17, pregnant && scared..but that was when i was 8 months..i am now 38 weeks..i still haven't had my baby boy but the doctor says any day now.. i have been reading new stories that girls post on here and i thought maybe i can say how my life is turning out..well after a while my baby's daddy started coming to my house and i had to tell my dad about what had happen between me and him..my dad was real upset and told me to think about what was gonna happen before the baby came..i tried talking to my ex and telling him how my parents hated the fact that we were back && forth and he would just tell me that it was none of their business and that if i loved him i would give him another chance..i made him wait for about two weeks..as much as i loved him and wanted to get back with him..i had to also think of my parents who were supporting me and only trying to give me some advice..for those two weeks he would come to my house bringing me gifts..but i couldn't just take him back. it was like he knew what to do to get me back..finally he started to realize that i was done with his games and that i wanted him to grow up..[[i mean i know it sucks that i'm making him grow up just cause i have to but we both did what we did and we both have to do it..its just girls do it so much faster..]] so he told me he wanted to talk to my dad..i was nervous about how that conversation was going to be..beacuse i knew my dad knew what was happening..after they talked my dad told me that it was okay with him and that now it was up to me if i wanted to give him a chance..
i know it sounds dumb..but he's the love of my life..a person i risked to have a baby with..so i did..we are still going out till this day and he is treating me so right..he is working mon thru fri and looking for another job to get me and his boy what we want and we don't argue as much. he comes and sees me in all his lunch breaks and brings me something to munch on and he calls me every second he can to see if i'm alright. there are days when he can go and play basketball at the park and i go see my friends or they come to my house sometimes..then at night he comes and stays with me at my parents house
As for me i am now homeschooled..waiting for my baby boy to come..hopefully i can go back to school after he comes and i can finish high school so i can get a good career..
i just wanted to let all you girls out there that come & read these stories like i do..just keep your head up..i know that some girls have it easier than others..but no matter what people do to you..you have to remember that soon someone is gonna come into this world and look up to you..
