    I was 17 years old. At

    that time, I had an ex who I loved dearly, but because of a lot of bullshit and conflicts, we weren't really together. We've been together for a year when we were 13...14, but we broke up due to some crap. We stayed primarily good friends. We weren't together at the time, but...

    When I found out that I was pregnant my

    boyfriend, Matt, and I started to cry. Not out of joy, out of fear. We were on 17 and his parents were super strict. I remember that day easily. It started out as a trip to the movies. Then, we went to a new hotel with a huge pool. It was summer, so we spent the night there...

    Not Cute

    I was a teen Mom.  I was 18 when I had my first child.  By today's standards, that's really old.  Thirty -six years ago, having a baby as an unwed teen was not the thing to do.  It was so totally not cute.  Now it seems that anything goes.  I see...

    I had my daughter when I was 17 years old.

    Becoming pregnant was just because I didn't use protection but having my daughter wasn't a "mistake". The father of my daughter is married to me and he is a good man. I don't regret my girl in any way, shape or form. <3
