My Teen Pregnancy
Hi, my name Is Courtney and im 17 years old. I currently found out I was pregnant. For mouths I haven't been feeling well and I wasn't myself I knew then something wasn't right. I got my mom to take me to the doctors she new I was pregnant right then and there but she didn't wanna say anything. Once we got the news from the doctor my mom was not mad at all she was so supportive and still is.
It wasn't hard telling my mom because she was already there with me but I had s much going through my head on how im going to tell everyone else. Well after my mom knew I had told my Brother and Dad and my Sister my Brother and Sister was happy but my sister wasn't so supportive. My dad on the other hand wasn't supportive at all but I don't expect everyone to be.
I know that im going to have haters say things about me and have weird looks but im ok with that because I have an amazing gift on the way. Yes its going to be hard and stressful but im willing to deal with it all and give my child the best that I can give.
I don't regret anything about my pregnancy I wouldn't change it for the world this has been an amazing opportunity and im going to enjoy and love my child till the day I die.
I don't recommend any teenager going out and getting pregnant just because you want a kid. Use protection live your life. If things happen well then they do but one thing you always got to know is that you need to tell a family member or someone close to and you always need to at least let the father of your child know to. You have to think about your life and the situation your in and ask yourself if your ready to raise a child or if now isn't a good time. Think of your self and your child.
Thankyou for taking the time to read my teen pregnancy story
my sons now graduatingHi my name is Anna and Im writing to tell anyone facing becomeing a teen mum there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. I had my first son Timothy when I was 16 his father left me two weeks before his due date. I remember feeling no one will ever want me now, I felt id let everyone down as I was at college on academic scholarship and there were high expectations. Yes it was hard but hes 18 about to graduate a private school with amazing grades. he has had a girlfriend for three years. I ended up married with two more kids own my house working and studying and like jenelle from teen mom have battled bipolar and addiction it can be done and we should all help each other. Im sure my sons way of rebelling is to be a planner and achiever we are close but more than being friends im his mum and I wouldn't trade it for anything
Single, Teen MomThree years ago at the age of seventeen I became pregnant with my first child. I was not in a relationship with the father of my baby, and when I told him that I was pregnant he said he was not ready to be a father and that he was sorry. It was very hard for me to deal with the idea of being alone with a child, still not graduated from high school.
Telling my parents was also very hard, but they supported my decision to keep the baby, stay in high school, and apply to college. I knew the only way for me to give my baby a good life was to finish high school and go to college to accomplish my dreams, so I could be a good role model for my child. About two months before the end of my senior year I went into labor when I was at home, thankfully, and 36 hours later I gave birth to my son Lucca David Elisha.
He has two middle names because I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I just went with both. The father was not present for the birth, and I didn't want any of my family in the room with me, so I had a labor coach but other than that, I had him on my own. I was incredibly scared, but hearing my son cry for the first time was the greatest thing I have ever heard.
Now, three years later, Lucca is doing amazing, and I am in my Junior year of college, which is another one of my greatest accomplishments. Lucca has never met his father, and I have no idea where his father is now, but I would not change my life for anything. My son is my pride and joy, and having him has completely changed my life. Being a single mother was and is very hard, even with the help of my parents, but my son inspires me to be the best mother I can every single day.

update on my previous story "The changes of mHello my name is Amanda and I'm doing an update on my previous story " The changes of my life ". My daughter Ellie is now a little over a year and a half, she will be 2 in august. I'm still married to my husband John and we are still going strong, of course we have our ups and downs, but everyone does. Last July we got our own apartment, it's been nice but once our lease is up (this may) we will be moving back in with my in law's so that we can save money and hopefully get a house.
I'm very fortunate to have such amazing support and have things going pretty good. My husband works a lot though so sometimes I get pretty lonely other than that things are well and I'm thankful that we have a steady income. I know sometimes things don't turn out great in the beginning but I believe that eventually things will get better so all you mom's and mom's to be out there stay strong and hang in there. We may be expecting our second child which is exciting and kind of scary to. I think it would be good for Ellie to have a sibling especially in the future not to mention that I would like more children at some point in my life, but it will be more difficult having 2 little ones to worry about. I believe we can do it though we have a strong support group however if I am indeed pregnant again I will be very nervous to tell my dad. My mom was always the one to do the talking and break the news so now that she has passed I have to figure out how to tell him myself. I'm thinking maybe writing it in a letter and having him read it while I'm not there,but I have yet to make any decisions not to mention I have to find out if I actually am pregnant or not. I do still miss my mom a lot but I try to keep it together and stay strong for my baby Ellie. I often get sad when I think of all the moments I know she would have loved to share with me, that we will never have together. However I know she is at peace and no longer in any pain so that is what matters most.
Again to all the girls out there stay strong I believe you can do it! I'd also like to say that I have a blog and if anyone would like to check it out or comment or just talk! anything please feel free to here is the link to it
I hope this works and that you guys can find it if you decide to check it out. I will update again later if I am pregnant again, I think this is a great community for us to come together. Good luck to everyone out there!
