Hi, my name is Chanel and I am a 17 yearsold singlemother to a beautiful baby boy named Damien. I started having sex when I was just 14 years old. At the time, I didn't have a steady boyfriend. I was out of control and having sex with several different guys. I was having sex with at least 8 guys every other month. I've probably had at least 30 different partners (I know, sad). I guess you can say that I was basically a sex addict. So as the months passed, I've became more out of control. By the time I was 16, I was participating in threesomes and group sex with many different guys. They all took turns with me and treated me like a whore (but I guess I deserved it). At that point, I was so out of control, I didn't even care about the consequences. The only thing that was on my mind was the pleasure. So a couple months later, I began to feel sick in the mornings and have dizzy spells. I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive ! I was so scared & I didn't know what to do. I didn't even know who the father was! It could have been 5 different guys for all I know.. But eventually, I told my mother and my family about my pregnancy. Although they did hit the roof, they still stood by my side & helped me through my pregnancy. 9 months later (yes, I carried my pregnancy out to full term; something rare for teenage pregnancy), I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. I named him Damien and he's the best thing that ever happened in my life. He doesn't have a father but I don't think he needs one. I'm his father and mother. I love this kid to death. He really changed my life for the better. Because of Damien, I'm no longer having sex with several different guys. I've cleaned my act up and I'm taking care of my son the best way I can.
Mommy of Jordanim brittany i got pregnant wit my boyfriend at the age of 15. i found out that i was pregnant on my birthday. my first reaction was how i was goin to tell my mom i called her and told her. she told me that she would be there for me and she was also pregnant. well when i got pregnant me and the father broke up and really did not talk. he only went to one of the appointments with me and that is when we found out the sex of the baby. he was out datin other girls then he got in trouble and that is when we started talkin again. i was 39 weeks when i got induced cause i did not feel jordan movin. so on january 18 at 7:52 i had a precious baby boy. the pain was terrible but i managed and did it without medicine. then after i had jordan me and the father got back together cause he relized that he had a son and someone who really cared for him.. now we are all living happily
I still believe...My name is Riley. I got pregnant at 15, with my best friends baby, Kevin. Kevin moved to my town a couple months ago. He was cute, and totally fitted into the popular group. I was in the popular group, and I was blonde, pretty, and wore approprite popular clothes. Mom even approved. I was so suprised with Kevin asked me out to goto the Saturday night club.
I was so happy. Then, I found out Kevin wasn't taking me to "A Club". He was taking me to a parking space on a montian gap above our town. It was so romantic, and pretty. Kevin later became my best friend, and my boyfriend. Everyone knew us as "The Cutest Couple" and "Most likly to get married" part of our yearbooks. After Graduation for the 9th Grade, Kevin and I "did it".
Then, in the Summer of 08', I found out I was pregnant! I was so happy, yet so scared to tell my parents, and Kevin. I told my parents after some hard-core crying and locking my door before I even told them. When I told Kevin, he freaked out and sat in his car. Thats when I found out Kevin had Anger Issues. She didn't call me all summer. My belly got bigger, and bigger, and bigger. When I got to school, my stomach was a little big.
No one asked if I was pregnant. They just thought I got a little fatter over the summer. But at an assembly, I blurted out in the speakers, "Some teens have complicatons. Like me, with my family and my pregnancy." And everyone looked at me and started, Crap. I was stupid...again... Kevin was avoiding me every step of the way. If we were in the same hall, he'd go to the nearest room.
We weren't in the same class, so lucky us. After a couple months, my old best friends saw my complications. Running to class, really turned into wabbling. Hang-out time (recess if you call it) turned into me sitting on the rock wall or sitting the class room. The teacher would be nice enough to talk to me about what I did today, and how am I with the baby plans. I didn't mind answering it, it wasn't that that bad if you see it.
At math, I went to the nurse and went home early at 1:00 because I can't fit the desk. So my best friends came with me into it and helped. I was happy. My baby should be coming any day now, and I'm happy for me. Kevin decided it wasn't all that bad. My mom is going to take care of the baby while I'm at school, and 30 minutes after my school ends and I get home, she goes to her work.
And me and my dad plus my sister, Jane, help with setting up the baby's room. The baby is going to be a suprise. Kevin and Me agreed we like suprises, like this pregnancy. But, I really enjoyed this. my belly growing in beauty. I like buying clothes, and going to the mall. Ramea, the baby store owner, knows I'm a teenager whos pregnant. She's so supportive with the pregnancy. She gave me free unlimited buying only for a dollar. Write back after the birth of my baby!
be proud! no matter how old you are your baby needwhen i first found out that i was pregnant i was so scared. i mean i was only 13 years old when i fell. i told my parents and yes they did hit the roof, but i expected that as they would only want the best for me. they were so supportive after the inital shock. i told the babys father and he scarpered. thats when it really hit home.. i was 13, pregnant and alone. as my baby grew i felt reall scared as i knew that sooner or later there would be another life form that would be looking up to me and that they would be depending on me for the next 18 years.
i had my baby on the 6th July 2006. it was so painful and i was 14. i have never been so scared in all my life. i was in the hospital alone waiting for my mum, i ended up having my baby alone, but when i was given her to hold i was so proud of what i had achieved and i knew that i was my job to make sure that she is looked after properly and that i am always there for her. i know that i am not that old but just because you have had a child does not mean that you cant do the things that you want to do because you cn. i am currently at college.
ok i still get bitchy remarks, who cares i have a beautiful little girl that i love and i know that she loves me
Me and my soni was 14 when i got prenant.i was shocked and at first when i found out, i didnt like the idea of having a child due to how i got pregnant. going up in church i didnt believe in abortion either so i had no other choice. seven months later i gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, born weighing 8 pounds, which i named him Romario. Today he is 3 yrs old, he's smart and thanks to my mom, i'm a single mom going to school. My mom is taking care of both of us. His father comes around every so often but i dont care about him and I'm making sure he grows up getting the best out of life. I think of him as my little angel.
