Heartbroken but trying to stay Strong
I'm currently 18 years old and fifteen weeks pregnant. Not really far along I know. My story basically is that I was dating a guy I met almost a year ago, now here i am pregnant by him. We broke up so many times and I kept listening to my heart instead of my mind. I knew how many times he cheated, he even got another girls name tattoed on his arm. I was never enough for him no matter what I did. Anyway this year on march first i found out i was pregnant and the young girl he messed with is also pregnant. Her parents have threatened to have him arrested should he mess with her again, but there he is with her again. This girl has harrassed me and made my life miserable, Now shes having the same thing done to her by the girl whos name he tattoed on his arm. I'm so miserable at this point. My life seems like a blur. I keep trying to figure out how I'm gonna deal with this. I used to be the good girl, I dont know how to do this alone. I find myself at times feeling very emotional. He plays to many games with my heart. While he was with this young girl, he kept saying he needed me and wanted me desperately, so I gave myself to him last week thinking they would never get back together. lo and behold a week later i get a random im from the girl apologizing to me and all this stuff. now she is back with him. its like all the time just as i am getting over him, he comes back into my life, I dont know what to do. Why is my heart so weak for him and will I ever get back to normal? I am loving the fact that I decided to keep my baby because here I've got a young life that will depend on me. But this wasn't my wish. This wasn't what I wanted. Now I feel even more like ruined goods. At first when he and I met, everything was good. Even when I got pregnant last year and miscarried he was there for me. tho we werent together he'd told me that no matter what happens, I'd always be his babys mom and i would always be number, me and his child. what happened to that guy. I used to think I could change him but I know now that I cant. I just want to get over him and let him not have this hold on me anymore. I'm done for good with him. i just wish I would stop having all these dreams at night of us still being together. Any advice on what to do to get over him would be deeply appreciated. Thank you so much for listening to my long story.
SECRET PREGNANCYI was 15 dating a 22 year old. hiding my relationship from my parents because i knew they wouldnt approve. i thought i was in love. we had sex without condoms because he thought he was infirtile. well he was wrong. i didnt get my period so i got 2 tests from the store and went to my friends house. sure enough they were positive. i was in so much shock and so scared. i called the father (Pat) and he asked if i was sure it was his and then told me i should get an abortion because of our age difference. i considered it because i was scared to tell my mom. my dad passed away 2 months before so i was sure she wouldnt be able to handle me being pregnant. well i didnt have an abortion and stopped talking to my daughters father. now my story gets a little crazy lol. so i never told anyone i was pregnant except my friend and my babys dad. everyone eventually had suspicions but i denied it. i was in denial. i thought i would tell my mom when she asked. but she never did. i was so scared and i wore baggy clothes all the time. i went camping with my friends and my water broke i called my mom and told her i felt sick at 12:30 am she eventually got me at 3:00am and her bf was in the car so i didnt want to tell her. so we got to the hospital at 5:00 am and i told her. she was so shocked and got really pale. i thought she was going to pass out. i had an ultrasound then they checked me because i was in so much pain and i was 10 cm. i couldnt get an epidural. i gave birth to my daughter at 6:27 am. we told my family and friends and they came to visit and were so happy. i named her alyssa and she is 10 months old now. her father is currently in jail and i wrote him a letter and told him. he is so happy and wants to be there for us. my life is great and im glad i didnt get an abortion.

WE had sex in my room and i asked if he had finished on me and he said no don't worry you'll be fine don't worry fine i said. so then we had sex two weeks after than i felt wet and i told him if had finish on me he siad yes i am like what r u kidding and he said yes i am like i am to young for a baby i havent even finish school so i stoop talking to him for some reason and after a month i did a pregnancy test it came positive i will always say to myself i am going tell my boyfriend but it never happen time pass and pass and i never told my parents i wanted to die i couldn't sleep and the worst part is the my sister had also gotten pregnant and i gave my mom a heart attack it was bad so in january 2008 my family had started noticing physical changes so then they found out and i told about my boyfriend and then they want to put him in jail becausse he was older men and i went through the pregnancy had the baby and baby boy a beautiful he name is johan and now he is a year old and i have to on going to finish high school and see him grow
a dumb girl
The Baby DaddyWhen i was 17 weeks pregnant with my first baby i was only 15 years old.
The babys daddy was 16. He had told me many times through out my pregnancy that when the babys was born he was gunna take the baby from me because i didnt have a job.
The baby will be born in 2 months & stilll im scared.
its ok to abortI had an abortion when I was 15. I did not want a kid and I wnated to go to college. The guy was no longer in my life. It was the best decision I made. I cant imagine being 25 years old with a 10 year old kid struggling to make ends meet. So for all those girls out there who think abortion is bad, it might be bad for you but that doesnt mean you have the right to tell other people waht to do. I am very happy with my life and I have no regrets.
