Pregnant at 16.
I am 16 years old. In 10th grade in high school, I met my baby's dad over two years ago, and he was saying how he was so in love with me and made me feel like he was really going to be with me for the rest of my life. He told me so many sweet things to make me believe that he was the one for me. He told me that he wanted to have a baby with me so we tried many times then me and him broke up and then a few weeks later, I took a pregnancy test and it came up positive, so I sent a message to his uncle asking if I could talk to him and he said that I could, so my baby's dad texted me and asked me what I wanted, and I told him that i was pregnant with his baby. And it had been about 2 monthes since we had talked. I told him that I was about two months along. He told me that I was dumb. And asked me what baby becuase he denied ever having sex with me. So here I am 17 weeks pregnant, by myself. Then my baby's dad told me that he was going to try to get my baby taken away from me to get back at me for not coming back to him. I'm going to be a single mother. My parents don't know. I dont really know what to do at this point.
teen at 15, mom at 16the month before i turned 16 of last year i got pregnant by my boyfriend at the time. it was not planned or expected at all. i went through 5 months of not knowing for sure that i was pregnant. horrible right? i still had, what ithought, was my period.
Josh, the father< had ran not long after me and him had sex. i felt like i jwas lower than low because i was used for that.
Right now, he does knwo that he has a little girl due the beginning of Aprill 2011. but he still does not come around. it is hard knowing that you do not have that other special person beside you to comfort you when times get hard.
i am thrity week snad five days right now and i love being pregnant. just hate those days where i feel like nothing is possible.
marissa and jordyns storyI was seventeen when imet my baby daddy. We met on myyearbook and started dating Dec 18,2008. We met the weekend after christmas and fell in love. Months went on and our relationship was on and off for awhile. Then in June of 2009 we decided we wanted a baby. Well a few weeks later we broke up and july we got back together bout a week later we found out i was pregnant. Joey didnt take it lightly at first and then he was excited. More time went on and he was cheating on me with another girl. He left me when i was 7 months pregnant a year after we met. In march 4th 2010 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl :). Shes my pride and Joy. He never came around hes seen her once since she was born. Its almost been a year since she was born and he still hasnt helped out and been there for us. He states he wants to but doesnt do anything and never comes around. He wants to get back with me but i keep telling him no. Marissa is my life and if she wasnt born idk what wud have happend all i know is he is missing out. I am 20 years old now and i am telling this because not all baby daddys will stay with them even if they are pregnant with their baby.

lskylar storythere was this boy named boosie who all the boys in my school was afraid of.all the girls liked him and he always disrespected his girlfreind at the time. who would ever think he would one day be the father of my child. we couldnt stand eachother and i would always throw slurs his way. but one day i went to school and i liked him and he didnt hide the fact that he liked me either. i was in the 10th grade and by next year we exchanged numbers. we were freinds first. i mean we could tell eachotha everything. by five months i was pregnant and i was in denial. i was so sick and couldnt hold no food down. plus his crazy ex and me didnt get along at all. when i told everyone they were shocked. i was 3 months goin on 4 and didnt even look like it. my mother face expression said more than words ever could. he said whteva i decided to do he would stand by my side. a month later he got locked up and thats when all the drama came. he must been still seeing his ex and she told me how he was writing her saying he didnt want me to keep the baby. i was hurt but more mad so i cut him off completly. it was alotta conflict and me n the girl became cool. by the time i was 6 months they let him out of jail on probation. his mother calld tht same day and she was ballistic. how i needed to get an abortion and she want a dna test. it was easter sunday when me and boosie talked and we let bygones be bygones because we were expecting a child and it was time to grow up. we was back toghther in that same week and i can honestly say he stood by my side through the rest of my pregnancy and birth. i gave birth to my little princess skylar and his mother whole additude changed. because that is his mother i respect her and she adores our daughter. i have alot of support from family and freinds. even though me and boosie are on and off again he stills is a great father and is alawys there when i need him.
