My Birthday Gift!
The day before my birthday i thought i could be pregnant. I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. The only thing that actually scared me was that the guy that i was pregnant by wasn't my boyfriend or somebody i was in love with. He was a friend though and just the thought of telling him gave me chills up my spine! That same day i told him and he was just as shocked as i was! The next day was my birthday so i went to get it confirmed. Even though i had already known, knowing that it was for sure i cried. I didn't talk to him almost my whole pregnancy and whenever my beautiful baby Maaliyah was born he saw her for the first time and she was already a week old! Now he's involved with her but unfortunately i'm pregnant again but by someone i've been on and off with for about 7 years now. it's gonna be hard but now i just want to do the best i can for my family and that's what keeps me strong and going. Even though i'm young as mother i have matured and will continue to do whatever i need to do to keep a smile on my daughter's face.
My Beautiful Suprise!!Hello Im Amelia Im From Manchester (uk) i was 14 when i got pregnant and 15 when i gave birth i am now nearly 17 and my baby boy is 15 months old.
He wasnt planned and his dad was 5 years older than me, he was my beautiful suprise though! His dad hasnt been on the scene in any way since i was pregnant. I did my gcse's and finished school with really good gcse's, i did it all on my own while i was exhausted with a very small baby :( Things where quite hard but totally worth it! People doubted me and though i would fail as a mum, but i proved them SO wrong! My Mum supported me and loves my boy to bits! i am currently at college training to be a midwife and i cant wait! My boy was the best thing that ever happened to me and i am not joking he never cried!! he was so good and i was so lucky, i feel as though its me and him against the world, i am very independant and dont accept help easily. I dont knwo what money situations are in America but over here you can claim child benefit which is 60 pound a week, child benefit which is 80 pound a month and income support which is 40 pound a week. I have my own house and even though i have a part time job i get most of my rent paid for (£550) per month. I have kept all my friends and they usually come round to see me and my baby, i go out once every 2 months partying but apart from that im never without my baby. I am sick of teen pregnancy being badly publicised, yes it shouldnt be promoted but there are some of us that are good mums and maybe we should get some credit for a change instead of comments and looks! I hope you are all very happy with your babies and i wish you all so much luck!!!
TEEN MOM TWICEHI, MY NAME IS NICOLE I'M NOW 28 YEARS OLD AND THE MOTHER OF 5 WONDERFUL CHILDREN. THE FIRST TIME I GOT PREGNANT I HAD JUST TURNED 17. I HAD GOTTEN PREGNANT BY MY GRADE SCHOOL SWEET HEART. RIGHT BEFORE I GOT PREGNANT I DROPED OUT OF SCHOOL AND WELL THATS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN. MY FAMILY WAS VERY SUPPORTIVE EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE DISAPOINTED IN ME. HE AND I STAYED TOGETHER EVEN THOUGH HE DID WHAT HE WANTED AND WAS ALWAYS CHEATING ON ME. ON JAN 3, 2000 I GAVE BIRTH TO MY SON NATHANIEL 7LBS, 3OZ. HE WAS PERFECT ABOUT 2 MONTHS LATER WHEN I TURNED 18 HE AND I GOT MARRIED. IN THE SUMMER OF 2000 WE FOUND OUT WE WERE PREGNANT AGAIN, SHORTLY AFTER THAT WE FOUND AN APARTMENT SINCE WE WERE STILL LIVING AT HOME. WELL ON MAY 7, 2001 SHORTLY AFTER I TURNED 19 I GAVE BIRTH TO A BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL NAMED VICTORIA 7LBS 3 OZ. IT'S BEEN A TOUGH ROAD BUT HE AND I ARE STILL TOGETER WE JUST HAD ARE 11TH ANIVERSEY YESTERDAY. WE ARE DOING ALL RIGHT FOR OURSELFS. I SIT HERE TYPING WHILE LISTINING TO NATHANIEL 10, VICTORIA 8, ALEX 5, HANNAH 3, AND ARIANNA 11 MONTHS PLAYING IN THE BACK ROUND. ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO ADD EVEN THOUGH WE ARE STILL TOGETHER I WISH I WOULD HAVE STAYED IN SCHOOL AND WAITED TO BE A MOM. BUT I LOVE ALL MY KIDS DEARLY, AND AS I ALWAYS SAY "IT IS WHAT IT IS".
Bad Mistake, Good Consequence!I am 17 and pregnant!.. So me and this guy had a wierd relationship. My junior year, when I was 16, he was at my school every evening to pick up his little brother. He would joke around with me about little things that I didnt even think about and he was 19 at the time, and had just had his first baby with another girl. Before long, he would always be out there at my car waiting on me to get out of class. At the end of the school year, we kept in touch and I started to go everywhere with him and we would always have so much fun, even if we didnt do anything special. My mother did not like him at all!.. I tried to convince her that he was a good guy and he was good to me and making me happy. She never accepted him but didnt stop me from seeing him because she wanted me to be happy. He went back to his baby mama and I was very sad. In October, we started to hang out again, but I never let my mother know. In November, I found out i was pregnant and told my mother on December 6 because the baby daddy had already stopped talking to me as soon as I told him. She was mad that it was his baby, but excited about the baby. Its now March and everyone is excited. He is telling everyone that its not his and all, but thats okay because I would be devastated to have to share my baby boy with him. I love my baby more than anything and cant wait till August to meet him :)
My teen storyI im a pregnant and 17. My ex and i met very strange way. I was skipping with a friend of mine and she intruduced me to him. i never thought it would work out but i thought if he's trying this hard might as well nothing to loose. so we started getting closer. i never thought we would last we were perfect i have just got out a serious relashionship and he did too. Well everything became so good between us we lasted a year and nine months we had our ups and downs but i loved him. And our love grew stronger. Well confession when we fisrt started having sex like the teenagers we are we wanted a baby so we tried a couple times but as we grew up together we started relizing it wasnt the best thing. but as months past we noticed i wasnt getting pregnant anyways so we didnt worry about condoms. well i told him i thought i was prego. and he said it was going to be ok. When i for sure knew i was that guy i so called" the love of my life" left me. he blammed me for the whole thing he left me hanging. And its sop shocking how you could have so many memories with somebody and they say will always be there, but its all lies. I's still in so much pain but i have to move forward in life because i have a little one depending on me. And now with the help of my family there helping me have god in my heart so i can be strong. The first two months i cried everyday. Its starting to fade but to be honest im depressed and i' m trying hard to forget about him to have pride in myself. he calls or textes once in a while to check up on me, but it hurts knowing at the end of the day that i dont have a man rubbing my back when it hurts or a man to kiss my belly or anything i'm on my own and now wioth the hepl of GOD and my FAMILY i'm going to do the best i can. I'm happy about my bby. and i'm gunna do my best to give my child everything i can. ANd to be a good mommy. Well i'm four months pregnant. Family still progressing on it but their a big help. I'm a junior in High school and i'm going to graduate :D and i'm going to do all i can for my unborn bby. I wish i would have known better but i 'm growing up lil by lil and i'm becoming stronger and now all i can do is be good mom and learn from my beautiful mistake that became a gift from god
