Be Careful What You Wish ForI lost my virginity to my boyfriend of five months in January 09. We were each other's firsts and clearly still in that new love phase. As we became closer and closer with each other, the more adventurous we would get. After about two months of being sexually active we started to have unprotected sex, not even considering the risks of pregnancy. In April I began having these terrible mood swings and was feeling completely sick. I asked my best friend (who was constantly having pregnancy scares) if she had a pregnancy test that I could have and happily she did. I stayed at her house that night and woke up early to take the test, only to find those evil little double lines staring back at me. I was so scared, but I woke my friend up and asked her if this test was accurate and she said yes. My boyfriend was out of state visiting his brother at the time. I took another test and it came out positive. I knew I was dead. I went home and told my mom and she told my dad... the whole deal. I came to terms with my pregnancy and finally adapted to it. My first sonogram told me that my baby had no heatbeat. I lost my baby at ten weeks on May 28th. It was the worst expirence I had ever been through. I wrote journal entires after journal entires saying I Want My Baby Back and I never thought that I was accidently making a wish. It's October now and I'm eight weeks pregnant and due May 28th (the one year anniversary of my first baby) and yesterday I went to the doctors and got a sonogram done. For the first time I heard my baby's heartbeat and I knew everything is going to be okay. I am so completely excited and ready for anything that is going to come my way.
my worldI was 16 when i found out I had gotten pregnant. It was the biggest shock. I was excited when I found out as I loved kids, but scared on how my mother and my boyfriend would react. My boyfriend and I were only together three months into the relationship. I had gotten pregnant a week after my boyfriend and I hooked up. I started noticing changes but assumed the weight gain was because of winter, yet I couldn't explain why all the weight was being gained in my stomach. The thing is I'm a dancer and having a fit body was vital. When I found out I booked for an appointment at an abortion clinic, but when I walked in I knew I couldn't do it. I had my first ultrasound and I fell in love my baby was sucking his thumb! When I told my boyfriend he couldn't of cared less, he said it was my problem not his. I knew I couldn't kid myself, so I left him as hard as it was. I went to the doctor's regularly as I was very careful. My mother ended up finding out, through my iron tablets, my ultrasound and my morning sickness that occured every morning at 5am. She never asked me about it, she wanted me to tell her myself. She didn't support what had happened, but she supported my decision as she was a young mom herself. Now I have a happy 7 month old son, and I will never look back, his father doesn't want anything to do with my son. But it's okay he wouldn't of been much help. I still go to school as my mum helps out. Soon I'll be going to college to become a teacher.
Master of my own FateHi my name is lani nd I am a single mom of a 3mnth old baby girl named Arianna. Hmm..where do I begin? Well when I was 16 I met this guy named jon over myspace. I kno it sounds bizzare but iit wasn't like he was a complete stranger. HE lived right on top of ma uncle. So we started dating and made it offical sept.18 2007. Ma mom totaly disagreed but being a stubborn child I went and still stood with him. I lost ma virginity with him in nov. The first time I saw his bad side was summer of 08..he had cursed me out nd spit chewed up food at me. Mind you, he was very possesive and jealous with me. So I continued a relationship with him. I even fought with my family 4 him. In oct. Of 08 I found out I was 1mnth preg. Ma mom flipped. I was only 17. I had 3 choices abortion, keep it nd kiq up 2 ma responsibility, or keep it but put it up 4 adoption. I kept it. When I was 8mnths preg. I moved in with him in our own apt. 1 week later we got into an argument and he pulled me by my hair. I fleed 2 my momz house. I gave him another chance. He was there when i gave birth. 7lbs 4oz. She was beautiful.. When she was 3 weeks old he hit me again. Slapped me in my face and pushed me down to the ground. I put a restraining order agaiinst him. Now im 18, single, and a proud mom of the most precious little girl. Never will I give him a 2nd chance bcuz I have 2 much 2 live 4..im gonna start college in jan. 2010 and I'll b moving in ma OWN apt. Next mnth. I dnt need a man. I only need ma babygirl! I will survive cuz I am master of my own fate!
vacation fling.Im 15 years old, CRAZY right? me and my mom always go to dominican republic, and i met a guy there, and we were irrasistable. I see him every time i go, and i go about 4 times a yeaar.
in august we had sex for the first time (and this is after knowing him for 2 years ) and the most horrific thing possible happend, that condom BROKE.
i missed my period this month, and i've looked at all the " early pregnancy signs " and i have alot of them, im very freaked out. im going to take a pregnancy test, then tell my mom thats going to be terrifying. I love my mother, and i know she loves me, but i think shes going to be very upset.
i mean even im upset, but i do not believe in abortion, i know im younge, but if i am pregnate, i know i can support my baby.
