18 Yr Old Mommy

I never thought I'd end up becoming pregnant my Senior year of High School. I heard about it hapening to other girls, but not me, that would never happen. Well it actually did happen. I was 17 years old and had been with my boyfriend only a few months. I was only about 2 months into my Senior year. I was almost stupid enough to get an abortion. Luckily I didnt, because that would have been the worst thing id ever done. I spent my Senior year at a school for Pregnant Teens. there was about 40 of us. It was a really good school and I learned a lot of stuff about parenting and children. I really didnt have a lot of friends there I had 2 actual friends. It got lonely. My senior year was definitely not as good as i had always hoped. I didnt get to go to Prom, which i had been lookinf forward to for years. But i ended up with a Beautiful little girl and I walked across that stage at graduation feeling so proud of myself. Most girls wouldnt have stayed in school but I did and that is a huge accomplishment for me. This college degree is gonna be the hardest but ill get there eventually. Im proud of myself and Im proud of my daughter and no one's gonna change that.

You're story sounds a lot like mine. I got pregnant at the very beginning of my senior year, but finished school. Definitely one of the hardest things I've ever done. But now I have a beautiful baby boy, and I know that it was all worth it! (:

I am 19 years old and have a baby girl who will be 1 year in a month. At least you had a school to go to with others like you. I had to hide my pregnancy until I graduated from HS. I am happy for you that you got thru it!
