changed my life
im 15 and pregnant i was 12 weeks when i found out . my babydaddy is not there hes embarassed of being seen in public with me, he doesnt want anyone knowing hes going to be a dad so i have to be a single mom so far i am 19 weeks and still he is not around. it changed my life and took my singing career away now i am here alone being a single mom with family support and none from him. it wasnt long till i knew he would not change & he would never be around
Here and GoneI was only17 when i found out i was pregnant. I did not get a pregnancy test done right away because i could just tell. I told the babys father and he was as happy as could be. I finally took a pregnancy test and it came back positive. So i ended up telling my mom and she had me go to the doctor. when they took me in for my first ultra sound that is when it all went down hill. They were sitting there for 10 minutes to find my baby. Which they should have seen cause i was already 2 months pregnant. Comes to find out when i was bleeding a week before and i thought it was normal because my mom bleed with me in her first trimester comes to find out i miscarried. Me and my boyfriend of 2 years on and off were deviated. But we named her Shauna Marie after my dead sister. For all you teen moms out there you may have hard times but just remember your baby is a miracle and you are lucky to have them.
Disaster PregnancyHi my name is Kahlia and I am 15 years old. When I was 13 my boyfriend Josh and I decided that we loved each other and wanted to share something special for the first time with each other. About 3 months later, I started feeling sick and strange, at this time my mum was a hard core drug addict and my dad was in prison for theft. I didnít have much of a family life but when I realised that I was pregnant, I was kind of happy that I had someone who will love me now. I told Josh I was pregnant when I was 2 months, he said "its barley noticeable, but I donít know what my parents are going to say". after that it was hard to contact him and hard to find him around, 3 months later, I found out that he and his parents had moved to a different state and to make things worse I had been kicked out of home bye my mother, I moved into a single mothers home, there were many other teen moms there with me, some of who were also still pregnant. My dad was release from jail when I was 8months pregnant, he found me in the home, he invited me out to lunch at his new apartment, when he looked down at my belly it was a whole different story, he kicked me to the ground and I had passed out. I woke up a few hours later in the hospital, there were doctors everywhere telling me that I was in labour and I had to start pushing, 11 hours later my beautiful baby girl Katie-lee was born. My dad is now back in prison for child abuse and attempted murder. Now I am back at school I am studying to become a nurse so I can help out girls like myself.
pregnant youngHi my name is lexi and i got pregnant at 14 and my son isaiah.he is my world and i would not change anything. I was kicked out of my house when my dad found out i was pregnant becuase he did not like black people. so i moved in with my son's father but that did not work, i ended up moving to Floirda with my aunt and uncle. i have lived here for 2 years now and my son is going to be 2 in august. Having a baby young is hard but it is well worth it. i love my son and i will not trade him for anything. dont ever let anyone hold you back go for what you want. i am a straight a stundet and have a job. if i can do it you can too!!!!
Story of my current lifeMy name is Katie, I'm 17 years old, and 7 months pregnant. I found out that I was pregnant around thanksgiving and actually told my mom that I was on thanksgiving day. Yeah happy thanksgiving to her. Huh? Well it took my the whole hour car ride home from my grandma's to build up enough courage to tell her. I went it to it thinking that I wanted an abortion, I told her that I already looked abortion options up bit needed her with me so I could get some kind of abortion pill. I thought I was going to have to have an abortion because o figured that my parents would be very upset with me and on their whole sex talks they always said that I would get an abortion if I was to become pregnant at a young age. Well my mom took the whole situation in a way I never thought she would, she asked me if that was what I really wantto do and I thought about it and it wasn't, I want to raise this baby. So with having a baby in mind I dropped out of highschool and got my GED so that way I could start college a whole year earlier than I would have been able to. As the "baby's daddy's" sake we were not together, and when I found out I didn't tell him right away, I figured he wouldn't care so why bother. I was probably 3 months along when I told him that I was pregnant I figured that he should at least know and if he decided to be around or not that wouldn't matter. Well after I told him we still weren't together but he took it very well he was saying how we had to spend the restbof our lives together and whatnot, then he got scared, he started telling everyone that he told I was pregnant ( I never told anyone besides a few friends bc I didn't feel it was bragging right material) anyways he told everyone that it wasn't his. So we go back and forth like this for awhile, now we are official boyfriend girlfriend, but nothing has changed. The only things he worries about are his friends, going to parties, getting drunk, and fixing his car. I'm in love with a total douche bag and he's never going to change. I was going to wait it out till baby is born because I though that would change him, Atleast that changes most people. But it's just hard knowing that I'm going to have to do everything alone, I mean I do have my parents but this is my baby and I'm going to appreciate all the help they will give me I dont feel that they should have to help me raise my baby. The father should. I just wish that he would grow up. An what's funny is that some of his friends are going to have babies too and they seem like they are grown up but he just wants to party. I'm being forced to grow up and he's out doing whatever he wants and he's the older one of us by 4 years. So for all of you out there goon through something similar, don't get too caught up on the father of your child, I'm completely in love with mine and honestly wish I wasn't. I don't want to get hurt in the long run is why I just need him go and break things off before I get hurt. Well here's to all the expectant moms good luck and best of wishes.
