15 and Pregnant
When I first found out I was pregnant, I panicked. I told my boyfriend and he told me I should get an abortion asap. I couldn't bear the thought of abortion so I ended up delaying it. It was very stressful in the beginning, and I started taking action to be a good pregnant mom by doing the right thing and telling my parents. My parents aren't very supportive of me. The only people I have is my boyfriend and two close friends. I didn't have the usual symptoms of a pregnant person. My stomach isn't that noticeable even though I am 25 weeks. I am noticing my stomach has gotten bigger. My boyfriend isn't upset at me for not having an abortion and very understanding. He is willing to provide money for the baby and since I can't work, I do as much as possible saving and earning some cash online. I'm thankful that he is a good person and hoping we will stay together and I can move out to live with him once I turn 18. I've decided to do online schooling for 10th grade and hoping the years ahead of me is a bright future.
16 and PregnantHi, my name is Hannah. I am 16, soon to be 17 in a month.
I am 13 weeks and 3 days along. I have a boyfriend called Rees who is 18. We have been together for 2 years and although our relationship has been very very rocky and we have been through a lot we are stronger than ever and have a special connection that I hope will last a very long time.
I was expecting my period in a week, the days past and past but nothing ever came. I had all the usual pms symptoms, especially sore boobs and a bit of mild cramping. I started to get suspicious. Rees and I were having sex for 2 years and we only ever used a condom once and I wasn't on any form of contraception myself. I told Rees about my concern and we talked about what we would do and what we would consider, and as soon as he started talking about abortion I got so upset and had to go run myself a bath just to cover up my crying. That is when I knew, I had never felt like that before I didn't even know if I was pregnant for sure but I knew I was, I just knew. So Rees came back to my house the next day and we made an appointment to go and see the doctor. He waited in the waiting room but as soon as the doctor told me I was definatley pregnant he came in the room and held my hand.
On the way home I was so worried! I kept saying to him 'Oh my god, how am I going to tell my parents, my dads going to kill me! I've put them through so much already what am I going to do?' He was smiling and kept telling me to calm down. As soon as I got in I flicked through the Friday Ad to the baby section to see how much it was going to cost.
Later that night I was sitting watching T.V with my mum. She looked at me and said 'have you come on your period yet?' The look on my face gave it straight away. She didn't know what to do or whether to tell dad, she thought he would flip out just as much as I did. We messaged eachother the whole night, she couldn't sleep and kept asking me whether I was going to keep it or not, I told her that I wasn't sure yet but I knew deep down I could never ever abort my child. I knew that no matter what happened I would get through this and I would do anything for my baby. I am strong and if it turns out I have no one at least I know I have my baby.
The next day my mum picked my dad up from work and broke down in tears, she told him and he just said 'fucking hell we are going to be grandparents!' apparently. Haha. He was secretly excited and was going to support me whatever choice I make.
Now my whole family know and are supportive, Rees is still around, he came with me to the ultrasound and it was the best day of our lives, we are in love with eachother and our baby and I know we are going to be great parents. I know it is going to be hard, I am already stressed and the baby isn't even here yet! For all you girls that are reading this but are not pregnant, having a baby is a wonderful thing, but please, use protection and wait because the responsibility that this is going to put on me is heaps too much for someone so young. But good luck.
Excited Mama!Greetings! I am 21 weeks pregnant today and very excited for my first pregnancy/baby. We are having a little girl. She is growing well and is extremely healthy. I haven't had any pregnancy cravings, which is really cool, because I eat so extremely well. Only fresh veggies, nuts, beans, and fruits for me and my little one. I feel fantastic and it shows. I exercise daily and have only gained 8 lbs. during my pregnancy thus far. I can't wait to meet this little girl :)
2 term pregnacyat first i tought i couldnt eat nothing, but after you get the hang of it and you fill wonderful when you eat healthy because you know your baby is being healthy. i have not gaind alot of weight neither all thanks to eating healthy, this is my first baby and so far i have been filling good no head aches or nothing. but what i have notice is that when i eat something that is not healthy at all like a hamburger from IN & OUT or something my baby moves to much and my lower stomach hurts a little thats why i rather eat healthy and feel my baby more safe inside me.
First PregnancyMy name is Jamie and this is my first pregnancy.Just found out im having a girl and im so happy cause thats what I really wanted.Havent figured out a name yet but its def gonna be a unique and special one cause I already know those are gonna be qualities of this child.First ultrasound pics were kind of scary lol some were cute though,just at that point where she kinda looks like an alien.But all the measurements were good and they said everything looks normal etc so thats great.Ive really only craved all the things ive actually needed to have a healthy baby this whole time besides the sweets but im a woman kind of cant help that but at least shes getting lots fruits,veggies and meats.Shes a quarter Philepino so of course im craving a lot of asian dishes which id say is a good thing.Ive only got sick twice and im thirty two weeks along,everyone keeps saying im lucky.Then theres the ones that are like it only gets better sarcastically,not worried though itll all be worth it in the end.Ill have a beautiful baby girl the best man in the world and a great life full of love and happiness.I consider myself to be very lucky and I thank God for his blessings.
