15 and pregnant
Well, 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)

WHEN LIFE HAD JUST BEGINI'm 20 yrs old my name is Jessicka i have a smart beautiful 6 yr old daughter who's my world . I met my childs father when i was 14 we met while i was walking my little brother and his friends to their home . he was driving and stoped he asked my name i told him he told me he was 17 so i gave him my number he hit me up 5 minutes later asking if i was gonna chill with him though i thought he was cute i told em i couldn't. 3 days later he hit me up again to chill so i did we smoked a lot that nite it was my 4th time ever smoking weed we had also dranked liqour and i just got caught up in the moment he started saying he wanna have sex and this and that as stupid as it sound i was so stupid enough to go along we had sex after smoked more weed i started feeling weird so i told him take me home when i got to my house i went to sleep the next morning my stomach was hurting i had a hangover so i just took some pain pills and rest throughout the day. well later the next day i told a friend bout what had happend 2days before that's when i found out from a friend he was actually 22 my mind was everywhere . He was calling and texting but i didn't respond back . I started cramping daily but never bad pregnancy had never crossed my mind untill i told another friend bout the pain i was having she asked if i could be pregnant i told her no it was probably because i had sex a week before . When trully i didn't know nothing bout babies and how teens were suppose to feel or anything so i thought nothing of it i still had my monthly period which i did know you can't have while pregnant but bout 7 months later i started having back pains but still thought nothing ever of pregnancy i carried on with my life like nothing and haven't talked to the boy/guy since that day and on April 18th 2 months later at 6:37 pm i was rushed to the hospital for real bad adominal pains and bleeding from my private area . When i get there they wanted to perform an ultrasound to see if i was pregnant i told them i couldn't be that i bled every month they did one anyway and they rushed me into a room where it had the letters " L and D " on them when we got in there my mom was very mad and crying she told me that the room i was in was a labor and delievery room before we could finish the conversation and before i could respond there was doctors and nurses surrounding me i was crying in so much pain when a nurse told me to push push right away that i was having a baby i cried even more i was mad and 5 minutes later a baby came of me . Of me they took the baby away to get all clean my mom told me that i had a daughter i couldn't believe it what had just came of me .. I had lost words i couldn't explain doctors came back in asked if i had girl names i told them i didn't my mom helped me pick out names she said Aa'miracle Marie thats what i stayed with considering my mothers name was Marie . 3 days later the hospital let me and my Miracle baby go home with my mommy i knew nothing about babies so my mom and big sister helped me out alot i was always tired and crying many times i told my mom that i couldn't do it anymore i couldn't raise a baby i told my mom i don't want the baby i never did i was so stressed out my mom told me everything will be okay she told me i thought i couldn't she told me i love my child she told me my daughter looked just like me and needed me i told her it was too hard for me i told her the father of my baby i was some boy i slept with and never talked to him again i told her i hated myself for what I had done i said it was all my fault my life would never be the same well i still did everything i was supposed to do i really honestly loved my daughter i just really really hated myself i thought i was nothing . When Miracle was 5 months i decided to go back to school when she turned one i went to school online so when i turned 15 i could get a job and that's what i did 3 months into me working i started getting depressed and hating myself again for some reason i just wanted to be with my daughter her in my arms hugging me 25/8 i started saving money 2 months later i quit my job and spent every second of my day with my daughter and when she slept it was online classes time . When she was 2 my mother bought me a car i was unable to drive it because was only 16 in the meen time i started fixing up the inside all cute for me and my princess . 5 months befor my 17th birthday i went back to school for my 12th grade yr i graduated 2 months after my 17th birthday life was great my mom helpe me a lot. I started looking for appartments eventually my 18th birthday came around i found a really nice one and me my mom sister and her boyfriend helped me and my princess move in .. When Miracle turned 4 2months after moving in we celabrated her party at my new place it was one of the best days of my life my daughter was just a perfect little miracle and sooo smart she always asked about her daddy all i ever said was " daddy went away befor i had you he'll be gone a while " it just kills me i use to just watch her sleep while i cry . My little girl wanted her daddy yet she hadn't even met him . When she was 5 I got his number through a friend i called him up telling him he had a daughter he didn't believe me he wanted a DNA test and since i was 19 of course i agreed . So that's what we did she was 99.9% Ryan's he was happy he never knew but he denied her untill we got the results which i already knew she was his now to be honest the only reason i did the test was because Aa'Miracle wanted her daddy so we had to go to court and everything for an Coustdy arrangement i truthfully didn't want to share my daughter with him but it was best for her . I started letting him get her every Tuesday and Saturday she sees him hmm quite often if you ask me . That's how it is to this day i have a good stable job , a car my license , my own place , my daughter got everything she needs and wants she's so happy her fathers in her life now my little miracle is a big girl now she's 6 in kindergarden already so beautiful and smart and since then I've hooked up with her father again pregnant with baby#2 a baby boy A'mire ! But that's a totally differrent story thanks for reading !
