I'm now a mum to a beautiful baby girl and although im not with her father im soo thankful for this amazing blessing! She's my absolute world (:
15 months ago i fell pregnant, and didn't even know about it until i was 19 weeks. I was scared at first but excited at the same time, in my head was this fantasy of what it'd be like having a baby.
Little did i know, when i told my partner at the time, he ended leaving me with-in hours after telling him, he even asked me to lie to others about it and say that we'd broken up before i told him. That hurt! To think you know everything about one person to looking at them and asking yourself, who are you? It's heartbreaking.
Of course i was guttered and it took a huge emotional toll on me for months, i tried to hide it from everyone but i told my sister and then everyone knew. Which helped. It was out there, people knew so they knew not to talk about him around me which was heart-warming.
Throughtout my pregnancy i forced myself to be strong. I forced myself to move on. I knew that if i was able to convince myself im capable without him, id believe it myself. And thats exactly what happened.
Im stronger than ever, im happy because of this little girl i call my baby. Im a single mum and a good one. I was put through something i would never ask for anyone else to go through because it's that's heartbreaking. And nobody deserves it.
I'm 18. I was pregnant at the age 17, gave birth 3 weeks after my 18th to a healthy gorgeous baby girl. Im happy.
If anything i just wanna say teen pregnancy is preventable, and im strongly not encouraging termination im encouraging pregnancy prevention because being a young mum is no fantasy. We see society going cray-cray about celeb-babies but reality compared to them are two complete different stories. You will be judged! You will be scrutinized. You will fill with emotions and tears, confusion and frustration. It's no fantasy

15 and pregnantWell, I just recently found out I'm six weeks pregnant and I'm also in foster care. I'm already starting to show and everybody knows. The whole school knows for Gods' sake. I'm having, I swear, ALL of the symptoms. I'm going to keep the baby, as now I am excited because I thought about it. I realize it's going to be extremely hard but what else could I do? I would never abort the baby or put him/her up for adoption. Also, I don't know who the dad is. Don't worry, I know my baby deserves to know who the father is, but i havent found out yet. I will soon though. My advice if you're pregnant, is don't be.
Paradise babyI used to babysit for a family and became almost another daughter to them.
One day they announced that they were going on vacation to Fiji and would I like to come with them..I was so excited..had never been away like that before.
Finally the departure day came and we flew off to Fiji and settled into a beautiful resort near Lautoka, pool, play area for the children etc. just heaven. After 5 or 6 days the wife took ill ( she hadn't been well for sometime) and was admitted to Suva hospital..
I babysat the two little ones each day,sunbathed,and lived in and out of the pool while the father Paul travelled to and fro to Suva hospital to visit the wife.
On his return each night we would swim and lounge by the pool with a cool drink after the little ones were off to bed... it was real heaven.. the drinks were iced orange or pineapple juice with a very small amount of vodka...just lovely..
One night after relaxing as usual I went and showered and washed my hair... I was busy sitting in my nitee, using the hair drier when Paul came into the unit and offered to finish drying my hair and began to brush it for me... I have always just loved having my hair brushed..we had often flirted a bit back home at times and also here at the resort... it was all just a bit of fun. he teased me a lot and guess
I loved the attention...
Hair done , I finished up tidying around the unit and said good night and went off to bed and sleep...
Sometime during the night I awoke to find my nitee pulled up and Paul gently caressing my body.. I pushed him away and told him NO... he said ok and kissed me ran his hands over my boobs and left.. I was sure shocked at his behavour and lay there upset and worried.. finally went back to sleep.
In the morning I met him on my way to the bathroom ..he gave me a hug and said sorry about last night, said he shouldn't have done that but said he thought I would enjoy it.
later he left for Suva again and I settled into the day looking after the little ones.
On his return we were swimming in the pool again and lounging poolside as before, later I rinsed my hair and Paul dried it and brushed it for me again... as I stood up to go to the bathroom and bed he turned me around and gave me a huge hug and thanked me for looking after the children while his wife was still in hospital.. he then kissed me... this time it stirred something deep inside me like never before..after I came out of the toilet I was about to pass Paul in the hallway and he caught hold of me and kissed me again...wether it was the drinks or not but my legs began to melt and my whole body trembled and fluttered. we kissed again and some how ended up on his bed more kissing and fondling and we had sex together ...it just seemed all a whirl.. swept up in a big mist of emotion.we slept together all night.
Next morning I was worried and told Paul so... he said he had the "kindly cut" after his second child was born and not to worry....
that night we became much more sexually adventurous... in the pool on the deck in the unit we couldn't get enough of each other.and so it went on for the next ten days until she was discharged from hospital and we all flew home.
Three weeks after we got home and I was back at school my period was due, it was late! it didn't come... I told Paul he said no way! another 26 days and no period.. god I knew I was pregnant.
all hell broke out!!! Paul denied it, blamed it on a young guy I used to swim with in the pool some time during the day etc... But I knew it was Paul's... in due time I became a teenage mother to a beautiful little girl I have named Paulette... I am a lot wiser now from a few nights of folly. should have had more sense but got totally swept away in the occasion.
Paul and his family moved away and I have a court order on him to pay for our daughter's up bringing until she is 16 yrs ( called maintenance in this country)
