14 is young.
Im 14 years old, and 4 months pregnant, after I turn 15 I will have a baby boy. The father is 15 right now and hes turning 16 in a few months, my family is extremely unsupportive, but his family is all the support I need, they have took me in as one of there own, and his mom is planning on taking custody of me, but now that this has happened we dont know how its going to work, the first thing my mom said when I told her is that im not keeping it no matter what, and since my mom has legal custody of me, the fathers mom cant make any of the appointments or anything for me. This pregnancy is going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do, especially with no support from my family. But I'm hoping it will all work and me the baby and the father will all live a happy life together. (:
OMGhi, im Imogen. im 16 years old and an orphan. im going to be completely honest with you here, i love being a pregnant teen, i mean i know i get people staring at me all the time and making judgements, but these babies are the only reason im still here at this moment. I was in a terrible relationship with my 10 years senior bf, he was very abusive and i had to leave him, i was planning to kill myself because he was stalking me continiously after id left him, but two days before hand i found out i was pregnant and it changed my whole outlook on life. Im now preparing to have the babies in a week or so and im so excited to welcome into the world my baby girl Melody Imogen and her brother Thomas Eugene. I hope all you single teen mums or mums to be are proud of what you have brought into this world, and how youve done it all on youre own.
im pregnant with twins
its hard ; but im making itwell it all started for me when i moved from my moms house to my dads house. i was only 14 at the time and i met this guy who i thought was the best guy in the world and that nobody could compare to him. we dated for a little over a year and we were having sex, but a couple times he would just pull out and say you cant get pregnant if i pull out. so we just kept having sex and then i miss my period and start having morning sickness and i was tired all the time, i was freaking out i didnt know what to do. so i told my sister the whole story and she got me a pregnancy test i took 3 all positive. so i finally went to the doctor and yea i was pregnant. when i told my dad he kicked me out of the house, i told my mom she pretty much disowned me and acted like i wasnt her child. so all i had was my sister and matt (my boyfriend). matt told me i could move in with him till we found a new place to live he was so happy about the baby at first. but after a couple months i found out that he was cheating on me and saying that he never got me pregannt that i was lying about ever sleeping with him. so we broke up and i moved in with my sister. matt went kinda crazy when i moved out said all he wanted was me and to have a perfect family with the baby. he started stalking me and showing up at my sisters house. he finally stopped after my sisters husband had a talk with him. i went into labor on June 2 2009 and had a beautiful baby girl it was a 23 hour labor and i thought i wsa going to die lol but i made it through that..since ive had my baby matt has not came to see her, hasnt tried to call me and see how she was doing or anything. i have 2 jobs living with my sister and im going to go back to school as a sophmore this year. my life has changed so much in these past ten months but its starting to get better. ive met this great guy hes 17 and he loves my little girl weve been dating for a month now and were thinking about moving in with each other. other people may look at me and think that ive ruined my life but i dont regret any of the decisions i made, and i love my little girl with all of my heart.
