It's not easy being a single mom. As a single parent, you have to take on double the parenting duty. Other issues can make this even more complex. For example, some young moms write about what to do if my boyfriend is an alcoholic. Please share your experience and wisdom. As you will see, these problems require a great support system, time management skills and top-notch parenting techniques. If you have tips to share with other single moms or just want to help other single mothers and single parents out there, then tell us your story.
I couldn't be happier.
I'm 17, and I found out that I am pregnant when I was 8 weeks gone. It wasn't planned at all, I went to a festival and started getting sick. I had missed yet my second period so I started thinking there was something dodgy going on. The day after I got back from the festival I went to a Family Planning clinic to find out whether I was pregnant or not.
Yet that morning my boyfriend and me had spoken about whether or not I could be pregnant, he or neither I was too sure whether we would keep it if the results were positive.
At the family planning clinic I was asked to pee in a thing and she checked it for me, and the test was positive. For some reason my mum burst out laughing and I nearly went faint. My Mum & me rushed into town and got some cute booties. I went home phoned my boyfriend and we were both just over the moon, it was weird to say how we were feeling that same morning.
My boyfriend & me are extremely close, have been for the last 2 years and this wasn't going to be something to break us. I'm now 20 weeks pregnant, still got 20 weeks left but getting more and more excited 2 meet my baby.
I'm so grateful to have a boyfriend like mine, I couldn't be happier.
I'm a teen Mum, and will never regret my decision.

October NightIt was my first time and I was scared out of my mind. "I don't even know this guy!" I told myself, but still, I carried through with it. I didn't think much of it at the time, didn't really think that I was one to get pregnant my first time, but I was proven to be wrong shortly after. I just met this guy 3 days prior, got his number while meeting him in the school library. Texting him and making all these plans to have sex. Like where we'll have it, when, if he should or shouldn't wear a condom.
Then the moment came, October 6th 12:00 p.m. on the dot and he's driving up. I get in his car and we start to head to the park, but decide it's too risky so we head back to my "best friends" house and go to the back yard. That's where it all happened, my virginity lost and a new baby that I didn't know of. So after that months passed and we didn't talk until I had to tell him that I was pregnant with his baby. He didn't believe me until I pulled my shirt up to show him the little bump. I'm happy with my little girl, Luna, and well he has to accept her because she'll be in his life till she's 18! He's my mistake, but Luna makes up for it and I love her with all my heart!!
My Lucky StarI found out I was pregnant about a week ago, immediately I told my mother; I had expectations for the test to come back positive. My ex boyfriend who is a marine broke up with me about a week and a half ago, after I found out I was pregnant he told me I should have it although we are not together.
One day I needed some help and he text me saying not to ever call or text him again. And my heart was shattered I was so surprised confused and overwhelmed. As I talked to my mother and sister about my situation they encourage me to be a strong woman. My mother says itís my decision to have my baby and each day I am falling in love with whatís inside me. I think of it as my baby I created it by myself it might be childish in a way but HEY IT IS MINE!!
I have set up appointments for an abortion and I just donít know what I want to do I would never want to kill my baby...and my heart wrenches inside, and I think about my future with and without a baby. I am a student and have part time job and I believe I can make it going in this direction. I just donít want to make the wrong decision I am almost 21 yrs old and partying can always wait plus iíve had my fair share. Anyways I will make a final decision one of these days wish me luck &hearts.
28 weeksI am 16 years old and I'm 28 weeks pregnant. When I found out I was pregnant I was about 16 weeks. I was scared because my mom had just left me to live with my sister. Today was the first time I heard my babyís heart beat. It was so cool and on Friday I'm having the ultrasound done. I hope my baby is a boy but if not thatís ok because we have a lot of girls in our family.
18 and Scared, But in LoveIím 18 and 3mos pregnant...the only reason why Iím scared is the thought that I have to tell my mom, my friends, and my coworkers. Anyone who knows me would never think that it would be me.
Iím smart, and was headed to college. A man 23 years older than me seduced me. I shouldíve known better. He wanted me to get an abortion and acted like I committed a travesty when I decided to keep it...Iím scared...but I love whatís growing inside my belly.
To all the young mothers out their with ignorant exes...keep your head up.
