Only 13, And Scared.
Well, lets start off im only 13. Yeah thats right 13. I know what your thinking, 13!? Dont worry im thinkning the same thing. I found out 7 months ago on april 18. He was 16, once again your probably thinking 13 and 16?! I know. But at the time didnt know what alcohol did, How it can make you do pretty much anything. But now I can see wiht this lump under my shirt. The Daddy is really supportive my parenst had a fit at first but hey, so did I. But I am due on December 19th, with my baby boy. Liam. After His Daddy. I know its only going to get harder but im not going to give up.
My Wonderful Baby BoyI found out i was pregnant when i was 17. Me and my boyfriend wasnt trying but we wasnt really doin what we were suppose to to keep from having a baby. I meet my boyfriend when i was 16 at church. We had ben together for a year before we actualy had sex. He was my first with everything. I had realized that i might have been pregnant in july of 2006. I was still in school so i never thought that i would be pregnant. My mom actully calld me in the room and asked me if i had came on my preiod that month of course i lied and told her yes because i was scared to tell her no. So like two days later i told my boyfriend and he told his mom and she took me to get a pregnacy test. It came back postive and i didnt realy know what to do. I was still in school. But when i told my mom she took it better then i thought she would. When i was 4 months pregnant my babydaddy left me and moved to a diffrent city. I was so hurt because of the fact that i was pregnant with his child. So 4 months past and he came back. I was 8 months and we had got back together. Then the next month my Beautifull Baby boy was born on APril 21,2007 @ 4:21am he was 7lbs 6.5oz. I graduated from high school and so did his dad. everything is still going great with me him and his dad. he is now 2yrs old and a bad little something lol but i love him.
my insiprationI was only 16 when i got pregnant. I was scared and the father of my child was no help at all. The hardest part was telling my divorced parents, but being hospitalized for a week for not taking care of myself was the only way they found out. I am now a senior about to graduate and my daughter is 17 months. no one knows how hard it is to be in school, work, go to intern and still be a mom. I dont have much help but i manage to do it on my own with the help of my family, mother in law, and sister in law i know my daughter will never miss anything. dont think you cant do it because look at me... im working my butt off and im 28 in my class rank.. amazing? i think so.. not a lot of people are in my situation and can get grades like i can, but thanks to my daughter i push myself harder than ever.
I found out I was prenat at 15When I first found out I was pregant yeah I was shocked and I was sure I was happy to have a baby and I was yeah I'm going to have another one in life anyway. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted and planed on having a baby when I grew older because I knew I was bringing something beautiful into this world. When it got time to tell my mum I was like Ahhhhhhhhhh ok I need to tell her before the bump come so I sat her and I stared to cry and I said " Mum don't be sad when I say this becaue you had to say it to your mim and I know it may of been hard for and its going to be hard for me" then she stared to cry and then she said " oh hunny tell me your not.... pregnant" O nodded and said nothing,. When it got time to telling my firends at school it was so hard, I told Molly, Lucy, Karishia, Nia and My boyfriend the one who got me pregnant and he was so shocked and mad that baled out on me so I had no one to turn to exept my mum and my friends. When my tummy got a bump my friends were supportive and ok I know most friends bale on you when the bump starts to kick in but I'm happy and lucky that i have such great and supportive friends if your friends are baling on you when the bump starts to kick in just say" hey look one day your going to be pregnant and I'm going to be there to support you so hey be there to support me now". Yeah people make fun of you but they di=ont know what a beautiful thing your bringing into this world.
My GirlI was 16 when I found out I was pregnant. It was the biggest shock of my life because I was with my friend in the school bathroom when I found out. I hooked up with my boyfriend, and he said he had one but really he didn't, which he was probably guessing I should've had birth control. I told him, and he broke up with me, blaming me for it all. When I told my mom, she was mad at first, but then she realized my tough times, so she supported me. At my first ultrasound, we found out it was going to be a girl. My father isn't in the family picture anymore, so my mom & I were so excited to have another girl in the family. We bought a white crib and used the guest room next to my room and transformed it into a girls' room. My waterbroke at 3:00am on a Saturday in December. We rushed to the emergency room, and at 12:00pm on Saturday, my baby girl was born. We named her Veronica, after my grandmother who died of cancer (on my mom's side). We nicknamed her Ronnie and Ron, and now she is four years old and I am twenty. I married a man named Brian last year, and we are doing wonderful (Brian fell in love with me when 17 and he knew I was a baby-mama) I know a lot of teenagers regret having babies so young, but I don't. It was the best thing that happened to me. If it wasn't for Ronnie, I'd be with that loser who never treated me right.
