XIt always gets worst before it gets betterX
I found out that I was pregnant, between my sophmore and juinor year, I was in Mcdonald's bathroom. When I first found out I had no Idea what to say or do, I wanted to cry. I knew my mom would freak out or kill me, but I stayed strong because a part of me wanted the baby, my doctor told me I would never be able to have kids because the chemo I went through.
I was 17 and at that time so was my boyfriend, When I told him he really didn't have an idea of what to say, he wasnt really happy, but he wasnt just going to run out on me. The day my mom found out had to be hell in the making. My mom said she wanted be to get an abortion, she cried, she screamed, and kicked me out and now I am living with my grandma. There is alot of problems there, so I have to wait till I am 18 to move into my boyfriend's or my parents will get me for run-a-way, (they have been trying to find ways to put me in YDC). My boyfriend and I are having problems, he is a pothead, and he has been really trying to avoid me and the more i try to hang out with him the more I feel like I am pushing him away...
I am 4 and half months pregnant and I keep trying to think positive, (the 25th I found out what it is!!!) It always gets worst before it gets better.
my storyso here where i begin..... couple years back maybe around 15 the doctors told me i couldnt have kids... ver upsetting iv always loved kids and wanted to be a mother... but figured i was just never goign to have that oppertunity. well i got with my current boyfriend and everything was better then i could have ever imagined. so we became sexually active with eachother of course..... well to both our suprises i got pregnant the very first time we had sex. so i found out i was pregnant funny thiong is my parents knew i was pregnant before i was. so i took 5 pregnancy test all posotive..... i was so schocked i ws so convinced i could not have kids. but you know what never once have i thought of my unborn baby as a mistake but instead i look at him/her as a gift from god. im happier then ever and cant wait to meet my baby althougb im only 5 weeks and have a whyle to go i just csnt wait. and as for my family they have been the best support i could have ever asked for there going nuts there so excited about being grandparents. they got an appartment for me and my boyfriend we move in in two weeks . im a senior in high school and am graduating early......... unexpected things happen but hey guess sometimes the unexpected things are the best things and i have all the support i need my boyfriends soooo happy there are goign to be hard times but overall my baby is worth everything and were goign to be just fine
Pregnant so youngwell im 17 years old. I was 16 when i found out that i was pregnant.I was living with my sister when i got pregnant. Me and my boyfriend had been dating for almost a year and a half when i foung out i was pregnant. I moved with my mom to a different state before i found out i was pregnant. i was still with my boyfriend. My mom was asking me why i didnt start my peroid yet. i kinda had a feeling that i was pregnant but i played dumb. i told her i started and i faked my peroid. My mom ended up finding out that i faked it. She left for almost the whole day. when she came back she had a pregnancy test for mr to take. When i took it, it came out that i was. my mom was so mad. she yelled at me then she cried. Then after all that she called my boyfriend and told him. well after all the smoke cleared we went and picked up my boyfriend and me my boyfriend and my sister ended up moving in together. My sister was pregnant too. she was 2 months farther along then me. i love my sister to death but she waould always put me down for being so young and stupid. and getting pregnant. so then me and my boyfriend ended up moving in with his parents house. im now 39 weeks almost time. my mom isnt going to be at the doctors with me. its only going to be me and my boyfriend. i love him so much. He has helped me the most through this whole thing. His family took me in. He is the only family that i have left now. Its now on just me and him to take care of our son. He has no money and its hard to get a job and keep it. And i cant work because im almost due. But i know we will make it through this hard times
can't move forwardi got pregnant at the age of 23, and my ex boyfriend is four years younger than me. At time that we both found out that i'm pregnant, he was confused and want an abortion, but i did not agree to his idea.i was really hurt that he did not accept the responsibilities. when i was five pregnant he left me, and never heard or even see him for a couple of months. that moment a girl came into my place, his ex-girlfriend who was still very in-love with him. but when she found out that i am pregnant she cried in front of me..until both of us crying cox we both found out that both of us are fooled by him. until we become good friends till the day i give birth to my baby..we never talk about our ex-boyfiend coz maybe we both know it will just gonna make us cry..i have to admit that until now i am still in love with my ex.. there are times that we cross ways. but he never even ask or talk to me about the baby.. i did everything to have him back but he alway refuse to see me or talk to me.. it just keep hurting me t coz he was with lots of new girls in his life now..this time i'm enjoying my life with my baby, loving her unconditionally.and working hard alone for her future. i can hardly move forward coz i was still in-love with him.
No child is a mistake!I was 17 yrs. old ( a senior in high school) when i got pregnant!! I heard everything from I wasn't going to be anything, to how could you make this horrible mistake and you have your entire life ahead of you!! At first i started n\believing what people said about me and my baby!! But at the end of my senior year I graduated with honors and I was ranked 32 out of 180 students. I never considered my child to be a mistake because he made me change many things within myself, for him and ME!! No, it wasn't and still isn't easy but with the help of God i made it through what i thought was the worst time of my life. My son is 6 years old and I don't know where I would be without him!! Never let someone put you down with the mistakes that we make. However, even though we may have made a big mistake by having sex at a young age, the blessing that came from it was not put on this earth by accident!!
