I Know My Birth Was An Accident

    My father used my existence against my mother regularly.  As if it was somehow her fault that I was in the world.  Last time I checked, it took two people to conceive a child!He used it against me too.  That I was unwanted, or that carrying me to term ruined my mother's health...

    Me Too

    I Am Very Lucky

    I am very lucky that my mother is a good person with good morals. Both me and my sister weren't meant to be even though she had used birth control both times (they failed both times I guess). As I can see from a lot of the entries in this group, I am VERY lucky to have such a...

    First accident, mom's getting pregnant after like 2 years of divorce [they surely were drunk, geez, who's stupid enough to have sex after being seriously divorced?]. Second accident, mom's refusing to abort me. Third accident, doctor made it on time to get me out of her. Epic...

    My sister was 6 months old when my mum fell pregnant with me. She thought she couldn't get pregnant if she was breast feeding. Part of me believes my mum is still literally back in the village, but the rest of me knows that common sense is hard to get through her mass of curly...

    My Dad Was Beat Up And Cheated On By My Mother

    My mum and dad met over 12 years ago. My mum seemed a perfect and happy woman. But she was a drug and alcohol addict. She had her own son Brodie who was never looked after by her. My dad worked long hours, and never came home until about 10-11 o'clock.  Brodie would still be...

    Unwanted From The Beginning

    My 'mom' is the reason my life is a living hell. She told me some time ago that I shouldn't have been born. My birth was an accident. She said the only reason why she didn't get an abortion was because my grandmother told her that it was terribly unhealthy for a woman to have an...

    One Day I Got Curious And Asked.

         That's the only reason I know. I remember a few people talking about whether they were "accidents" or not at school. They were saying things like "Ha ha, you were an accident!" to some people, like it was a bad thing. When my mom admitted yes, I was, I felt...

    Well there's not much to say,

    it was pretty stereotypical. My parents conceived me when they were in their late 20s, but neither of them wanted children at the time. My dad even told his mum he didn't love my mum, but that he couldn't leave his child. So, they got married after I was born. I still admire...

    Doctors Told My Mom She Was Infertile!

    Yep, so I don't think she was too concerned with birth control.  She always wanted kids, though, and was crushed after a miscarriage with her first husband.  Then, when she wasn't even trying, she got pregnant.  She calls me her miracle child.
