hello. my name is skye and i also have another story on here about me when i was pregnant. well, alot has changed. i had to end up leaving my baby's father, which is pretty much the opposite of all the other stories w/ the father leaving the mother. my ex was my world, or so i thought.
we were both young, 18 when we got together. i was 19 when i was pregnant. he was absolutely wonderful during my pregnancy, the best even. but in "the real world", he was not so great. he went from job to job to job, not supporting me the way i needed. i worked up until 2 days before i had my daughter. he basically screwed up too many times, and i didn't want that for not only me, but my child. so, knowing how hard it would be, i left. and yes, i had the support of my family but basically it was my baby and me.
she is now 14 months old and i am in a relationship w/ my soul mate. he has no children of his own but he is the best father. i have found a man, not a boy, to spend the rest of my life with. and my daughter loves him, they are so great together.
i know how lucky i am.
For Sophie MirelleI found out I was pregnant in 2007 and my boyfriend wanted me to have an abortion. I said no and we broke up.
I delivered a beautiful baby girl, Sophie Amber, on January 20th 2008. She is 2 weeks old now and everything is going great. I live with my mom, dad, and my sister and they have been great. My sister takes her at night and my mom helps me with her during the day.
Sophie is a really easy baby and I know I can raise her to be a kind and happy woman. She already has my heart in her tiny hands!
I am 25 and I am a single, happy, mother.
mommy of one and another on the wayWell i had just turned 18 when i got pregnant with my first one... Yes i was out of high school...but not really ready for a baby...The father...well thats a story in itself...he had another girl pregnant...and was still seeing her...
what can i say...love is blind...I still tried to make things work...he didn't want my daughter...and he denied her up until she was seven months....
Its hard being a single mom...yes i had my family...but its not the same....Well i moved on....and eventually started dating another guy....he was a co worker of mine...I thought he was the one for me....up until i got pregnant....
So now i am a single mommy of two....even though baby number two is not here yet...Im still alone....but i love my daughter Nevaeh Nikole...
And i have enough love in my heart to love another...and be both Mommy and daddy....
not again!!my name is carly. i am now 21 years old with two children. i had my first child at the age of 18 and didn't know who the father was. it was terrifying. i never lived at home. i was kicked out at the age of 16.
i was now 18 single and living in a damp flat. my x boyfriend said that he would be that baby's dad so we got back together and was happy until my baby was born. i had severe post natal depression and we split. i nearly gave my baby up but luckily my nan took me in and helped me through this hard time.
i decided i wanted to go to college so in september i returned to college now my son was 14 months. i then met a bloke called Ryan he was a nice bloke at first then i got pregnant again!! i couldn't believe it. i was in college and not even 20. but i decided to keep the baby as i thought that ryan and i would be fine. we had family around us.
however while i was pregnant he had an affair and started to change. when my second son was born, things were good for a while but eventually he hurt me one to many times and we finished.
now im 21. i have two children with two different men. i have a lovely house ive just bin accepted into university and i have met a nice man called James. things couldn't be better.
This short story is just to say that no matter what your past or situation, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Ive done it so anyone can do it no matter how old you are.
A Long JorneyI was sixteen when I found out I was pregnant. I had been having sex with my "best friend" for about two years even though he had a girl friend. I guess I wanted to feel loved and cared about. After we found out I was pregnant we talked alot about abortions but I couldn't go through with it. I wanted to but I just didn't have the money.
I hid my pregnancy from my parents till I was about five months along and really started showing. My parents were great about it. they bought clothes and toys and a crib and diapers all for the baby. My friends parents didn't even know I was pregnant. I was still trying to protect him.
Well, my son was born on March 10, 2006 and it was the happiest day of my life. He was so small and beautiful. it was more than I could of imagined. His dad showed up for about an hour then when he saw my labor was in distress he left and went out to eat with his friends. What a guy!
Months later I was still friends with this guy even though he had given me no money and or come to see his son more than four times but through him I met my husband. We got married June of 2007 and I thought he was the best man in the world. That's why when I got pregnant in August 2007 I didn't worry.
Now at six months pregnant he has decided that we moved to fast and that he wants a divorce. I don't know what I'm going to do. He's a good father to my son whose own father doesn't see him anymore and I never thought anything was wrong with our marriage.
Pray for me and my babies please.
