My Little Boy
I'm currently 18 years old and pregnant with a healthy little boy. I met his biological father in the local town I currently lived in. At the time I thought he was the sweetest guy ever, but after a few months I felt trapped, leaving me to turn to drugs. He was controlling and never let me communicate with my family. He made me move out in September of 2008, and we got kicked out twice and lived in a garage. Finally in early 2009, I finally worked up the courage to leave him. We were apart for a month. We got back together and broke up about amonth later. Two weeks later he called me and begged me just to come hangout, so I did. We were then together for a few weeks. During the time I got pregnant. I got pregnant on April 26th 2009, and didn't know. We finally had stopped talking and I never wanted to talk to him again. Then on May 23rd I went to a pregnancy center and the two lines popped out and smacked me in the face. I called him and told him, hoping he'd change his ways and stop with his drug and alchol abuse. On June 3rd, I seen a little pea on the Ultrasound screen. We tried to make it work, thinking a baby could help our relationship. IT DIDN'T! I finally broke it off and met someone who treats me right. Now my son's father wants nothing to do with him and hates me with a passion. My boyfriend and I are planning on raising my little boy when he is born in late January. He's truely a blessing, if it wasn't for my little guy, I'd be 6 feet in the ground from drug abuse.
cant be realI got pregnant with my current boyfriend --, I had been with him 3months to the day that I found out I was 4 weeks pregnant, I never thought this could happen to me I was always thought of as the ‘innocent’ one out of my friends so when I looked at the positive test my best friend had persuaded me to take I felt no emotion my mind went blank I walked back into my room -- were fighting at the time he rung me asking me to meet him and if I wanted him to get me any alcohol of course I had to say no then I continued to say I needed to talk to him instantly he amused the worse thinking I was going to end it, when I meet him I took him away from everyone and told him I was pregnant he walked off crying his best mate followed him then he returned crying it felt like everyone was crying accept me. I’d always said I would have got a abortion up until the age of 16 but something changed my mind. It took me 3 weeks to tell my mum she wanted me to get a abortion my dad was going into hospital for a major heart operation my life at home was hell finally my mum has come around to the idea everyone at school is supporting everyone’s stood by me luckily. I know somebody who has a baby at 13 and I have a friend who is due two weeks after me so we talk a lot about things. but things are hard for me and Lewis as I find it hard to tell him how I am feeling and we spilt up the other weekend but we got back together we have been together 9months now nearly 10 and we can’t wait to meet are little girl on the 14th of January 2010. I plan on going back to school for my exams and then going collage in September. I regret keeping her at times I miss how my life was but I cant wait for my new life.
To JennaOkay there Jenna. My daughter is 16 and pregnant and let me tell you she is the most responsible person I have ever met. How dare you mock these young women! How do you know there background, how do you know they were not raped?! My daughter is attending school everyday and in grade 12. She intends to graduate this year and has a fulltime job on the side as well! If you ask me dear your the sad one here and if you dont like it get off sites like this and go back to your "good life." I am an RPN and its people like you who need help, not these girls. Yes they made a wrong choice but atleast they are owning up to it and taking the actions that are needed. P.s - Who even says they're on welfare? You judgemental prude.
Mum at 15I was 14 when I found out I was pregnant and 15 when I gave birth to my fraternal mixed gender twins, Zachary and Madeline. People at school had mixed reactions to my pregnancy, but my friends and teachers helped me through it, along with my parents.
I advise teen mothers to STAY IN SCHOOL. I am now 22, and my children are now 7, and I have another daughter, Gabrielle, who I had at 21 with the same father. I have a part time job as well as being in university studying for a degree in law. You can make it through, no matter how hard it seems!
My precious little angelI was 17 when i found out i was pregnant. I first noticed 3 months into it. My baby girl is never going to see her dad ever, He was killed in a hit and run 1 month before i found out. He would have killed to see his baby girl. But i now know if he could of seen him he would of been so proud. I feel like i see him everyday now. Willow looks so much like her dad and i will make sure to tell her all about him when shes old enough.
