Impossible PregnancyMy story is different from the rest. My story doesnt make sense and doesnt seem possible.My story could be magic. My story starts in January of my freshman year.
One day I realized I was late for my period, but that wasnt too unusual for me, I was always late or early. Another month went by and still nothing happened. Again this had also happened to me before and I wasnt too worried. It came to a point where I completely forgot about my period. One day in my free period me and my friend Elle were talking about it and tried to remember when I had last got it(We tell eachother everything.). We figured out about 6 months since it was June. We didnt know what could be wrong, but hey, were in high school, so we ignored it. Me and Elle joked with all our other friends that when September came it would be nine months without my period and a baby would "pop out of me". We knew it was a joke and it couldnt be possible, I was just as skinny as ever, I wasnt acting any different, and I only felt dizzy in the morning a few times, which is pretty normal for me. We all thought it was a joke, but can someone tell me how right now I have a beautiful 1 year old baby girl (named AnaLeigh) lying next to me? How could it be possible to have a baby without ever losing my virginity and not gaining any more then 5 pounds? Dont believe me? Fine. As long as I have my loving family, Elle, my one true friend who stood by me, and of course, little AnaLeigh. The strange thing is though...AnaLeigh has the palest skin youll ever see, curly blonde hair, and bright green eyes....I have straight brown hair, naturally tan skin and brown eyes. It doesnt make sense, nothing about my story makes sense, but its how it happened and this is how my life will be forever.
14 years old and pregnantWell. I'm 14 years old and pregnant.
It wasn't supposed to be this way.
My boyfriend loved me... Or so I thought.
When I turned 14, my boyfriend and I had been together off and on for 2 years, and we had just gotten back together again 2 months earlier.
Then he raped me.
It was the most awful feeling ever, and I hate to recall it.
I broke up with him the day after, and told my mom what had happened.
She took me to the doctor, and a pregnancy test confirmed what we feared most.
I had never believed in abortion, although that day I sat down and seriously considered it.
Adoption wasn't an option though. If I was going to go through with the pregnancy, it was only fair to the baby that I went through with parenting too.
My mom was thankfully very supportive in my desicion to keep the baby,
I am now 8 months pregnant, due October 15th, and I even though I'm scared, I can't wait for Lilianna's arrival. Let's pray everything goes well! I hope I can provide for my baby girl... My mom is going to have to help me even more than she already has, and I feel very sorry I have burdened her this way. Financially I'm stable, bringing in a good income.. But will it be enough?
Lilianna deserves the best, and I'll try my hardest to give it to her, despite the horrible circumstances in which she came to be in my belly.
17 when i got pregnantI was just starting my senior year and i was 17. im now 21 and my little Riley Rae just turned 3, shes everything to me(: i finished high school with my big round belly i was due 2 weeks after i graduated! when i told Rileys daddy we had been together for 3 years at the time he was happy, he knew it would be hard but he told me no matter what we would get through it and he promised to take care of me and the baby. when i told my dad he didnt talk to me for a week when we did finally talk he told me i was stupid for believe my boyfriend, that he is only saying that he would leave sooner later but i didnt listen to him i just did the best i could to be a good mother to Riley. the day i turned 18 i moved out big and pregnant packing all my stuff i went to my boyfriends house with him and his parents. a month after Riley was born my boyfriend saved enough money to buy us a house. we are still living in this same house, i have one more semester in college and then i will be a teacher. my now husband has his own business with his dad. && Riley loves daycare! i know i didnt have it hard i had someone there with me threw out the whole thing to love and support me. every teenage girl thats pregnant and has no support from the babys father just do what you can to be a good mom to your child. most importantly finish school.
