Pregnant At 16

When I was 14 I met "Joe".  He was 17 and I guess what you would consider a "bad boy".  I thought he was amazing.  And since I was always considered a "good girl" just being associated with him excited me.  We started dating a few weeks after we met.  When we had been together for about 2 years, I found out I was pregnant.  I was only 16 and scared to death.  My mom wanted me to have an abortion, but when I didn't want to, she wanted me to give the baby up for adoption.  I refused and she kicked me out.  My dad opened his home for me, and after my daughter was born, I lived there for 7 months.  When I was 17, "Joe" and I got married and moved into our own house.  He was working full time, and I was a junior in high school.  Eventually my mom came around, and I think that we are closer than we have ever been.  I graduated high school and went to college for medical assisting.  Early this year I found a really good job, and 2 weeks later found out I was pregnant.  "Joe" didn't seem all that phased, but I was devistated.  I didn't want another kid, I hadn't even wanted 1!  Now I was going to be a 20 year old with 2 kids.  Our financial situation was ok, but adding a baby into the mix was not going to help anything.  But, I battled horrible morning sickness and a trip to the hospital for dehydration.  Then after 4 months of working, the employer decided that "they no longer had a need for my position".  I knew that wasn't the reason, but I was so miserable from pregnancy, I took it as a blessing.  I was 6 months pregnant when I quit working.  Our son was born in September, exactly 4 years and 5 days after our daughter was born.  "Joe" and I will have been together for 6 years on Dec. 7th, and married for 4 in March.  I never thought I could be this happy.  What started out as (what I thought) the biggest mistake of my life, has turned into my whole world.  I love my little family, we are complete now.  I think every day about how lucky I am.  Most teenage moms don't have the option of being with the baby's dad, and usually end up single moms.  I happened to fall in love with someone who knows what it means to be a man and take responsibility for your actions.  I wouldn't change anything.

Hey hi.....salute to you n Ur boyfriend.
This is what I myself have experienced. Me and my boyfriend had sex in school, although it sounds weird but I'm sure you do understand. After 5 weeks I gotta know that I'm pregnant,I was 14 that time and we fled that very night. I don't know what u think of me but belonging to a very conservative family, either I'd have lived or my child would've. So now all three of us are together. Although I faced some trouble during parturition and also some while breastfeeding him, but both me and my kid are fine now.
And congratulations to me and ma boyfriend, I'm pregnant again and this time with twins. So it's perfectly normal to get pregnant with someone u can trust.

I was curious is it hard me and my boyfriend have been together for a year and I think I am we are excited and scared I want to know if I can do it?

My daughter got pregnant at 16 on her baptism day ironically.We are catholic and when she was born,we never had her baptized due to a number of reasons and as she grew we just kept putting it off.So finially when she was 16,we had her baptized at easter vigil.At our parish,girls 16 and under are baptized as infants and are considered infants for the whole time.All the girls,including the daughter had to wear white,poofy,above the knees,baby girl style dresses with a bonnet,lace anklets and white mary jane shoes.Their diaper had to be cloth and pinned on them with diaper pins and they had to have loose fitting rubber pants[plasticpants ]over it with a white under shirt under their dresses.the daughter looked very cute and pure in her outfit as di all the other girls.Her boyfriend,who was 18 came to her party after wards and then after her party they went to his house and his parents were out of town.they had sex and the daughter got pregnant and it was just before her first communion a month later we found out she was pregnant.her and all the girls had to wear their baptism diaper and rubberpants under their communion dresses and it was so ironic and weird seeing her in her communion outfit and knowing she was pregnant!She had a 7 pound 6 ounce baby boy nine months later and we took care of him while she finished high school and then her and her boyfriend got married.

I was 14 the first time I got pregnant and didn't know who the father of my child was so my mom and I decided the best thing to do was to get an abortion then when I was 16 I met a guy he was 21 needless to say 3 months later I found out I was pregnant I took a picture of the test and sent it to him he told me to take the morning after pill but it was to late he ended up leaving wanting nothing to do with me or the baby I told my parents after 3 months they would help me me and my mom were always fighting so I left and moved into my grandparents and 9 months later I had my son after 11 hours of labor I called his father to tell him that he had a son he came up to the hospital and never left me and him are still not together but he is in his sons life I am now 19 my son is 3 I work full time but still it is not enough to support my son so we are stuck living with my grandparents it's not fun being a single mom don't think just because someone made it work that you can wait til you are married

File a complaint with the EEOC, it is unlawful to be discriminated against for being pregnant.

This a great story . Blessings your way!

Hi, my name is Alison. I am now 26 years old. When I was 16, I found out I was pregnant with the baby of my boyfriend I had been with for 5 years, since I was 11! I was scared out of my mind just thinking about his and my parents reactions. My mom was a teen mom, and had my sister at 17. She then had me at 20. Anyway, I was worried sick but knew I had to say something because sooner or later it was going to become obvious. After being pregnant for a month, I had worked up the courage to tell my boyfriend Aaron and my parents. When I told Aaron, he was kind of excited but also in the same boat I was. SCARED TO DEATH. One night after I had gotten home from watching Aaron's football game, we both told my parents together. My mom started crying while sitting on the couch and my dad went to the car and left. Once my mom had stopped crying, she finally told me that I would have to take responsibility for my actions. She told me she would be there to help me every way she could, and told me she would support me and the baby. After an hour of driving around, my dad came back and said it's our mistake and we are going to have to deal with it, and told Aaron that he needed to stay to help with the baby no matter what. When we told Aaron's parents, there wasn't as much drama but they were still VERY shocked. They told us that they would support us too, and said to make sure to know they will always be there. I was very fortunate to have such supportive people on my life. After 9 months of crazy morning sickness, panic moments, and doctor appointments, I had my son. I was in labor for 14 long hours but I would do it again for my son. He is a true blessing. We named him Bentley Aaron, and he was 7 lbs, 5 oz. Bentley is now 10 years old with one brother and one sister, Braxton James (5), and Brayleigh Nicole (2). We want to have one more child before it's all said and done because we both have always wanted four kids. As of after birth, I lived with my mom until I was 18, (Because I had Bentley actually at 17), for the first year of Bentley's life. After that, we moved into a pretty small home but my parents and Aaron's parents paid rent for us for a 1 1/2 years until we could land on our feet. After that, we lived there until we were 21 and then moved into a huge house with 7 bedrooms and 6 1/2 bath. We still live there and don't plan on moving because we love our house. I was very fortunate, and I won't even deny it. I have been so lucky in my life! Aaron and I have been together 15 years, married 9. I couldn't be happier and I hope any teen mom out there can have half the luck I had. I know it's tough but hang on, don't give up, and believe in yourself. You can do it! :)

I have been with my boyfriend for a year and I think I'm pregnant I'm 16 and we both are scared but excited can we do it cause we aren't sure.....

I met my boyfriend Aric when I was 15 and started dating weeks later. Aric and I were dedicated to sports. He played football and basketball and I played softball, basketball, ran track and was a cheerleader. Aric 16th birthday was coming and we had a party, Which of course consisted of alcohol. We were completely wasted and one thing lead to another and we had sex. Weeks later I noticed my period never came but I brushed it off thinking it was from stress. Another week went by and I was always tried during practice but that wasn't like me and I noticed my stomach was getting bigger. I asked my older sister to drive me to the doctors. The doctor to me something that would chang me life. I was pregnant. I knew than and there that I had to quit sports and everything. I told Aric and he was upset and happy but I told him not to quit his sports. Our parents didn't take it well but 28 weeks into my pregnancy they eventually started to support us. 9 months later I had my baby girl Heaven and she means the world to me. I am now 17 and am a Junior in High school. Me and Aric are still together.

Hey there, my name is Jessica and i was 17 when i found out i was pregnant, just starting my second year of my automotive apprenticeship. It was not done on purpose I had always know i wanted to be a mother but not at that time we smoked pot every day and i smoked cigarettes but as soon as those double lines showed up on that pregnancy test I was done, done with pot and smoking, i booked myself into my gp to have bloods done then rang my bf (of 3 months) he was 26 and he was over joyed. honestly the thought of abortion did arise but i quickly dismissed it , this was MY baby MY responsibility, my whole family was very supportive but at 3 weeks pregnant and 3 trips to emergency i was diagnosed with hypermeisis gravidium (sp) which is sever morning sickness for weeks i couldnt eat anything i was constantly in and out of hospital until 28 weeks nothing they gave me healed but it calmed i could eat again, i then developed pregnancy carpel tunnel and spd (symphis pubis dysfunction) which made every day chore increasingly difficult but i made it on 24/09/13 i woke up and my eyes would barley open my whole body was swollen and i was retaining fluid in my lower abdomen making it very sensitive i was taken to hospital by my mumma and was told my blood pressure was sky high and was not lowering after 4 hours in birth suit it still hadnt lowered even with the pain med to ease my pain, next thing i knew i was being induced via tape and had to stay over night the whole night i expirienced contractions and got 2 hours sleep the next day once sid (my partner) and my mum went to get coffee my waters broke, off to the birth suit again i was given pitocin after 5.5 hours to speed it up was hooked to monitors and then soon after due to back problem and hip problem (previous surgery) i opted for an epi soon enough i was at 10cm and it was time to push i pushed for a total of 45 mins and was terrified because the cord was around my sweet boys throat every time i pushed his air way was obstructed but he was out i listened , they give him to me and i still listened, he made a small gurgling noise, he wasnt breathing! my baby was quickly taken from me and his airways cleared (this was done 4 more time before leaving hospital) but he was safe, he was alive and he was with me 14.5 hours of active labour over we made our way back to our room exhausted i barley slept because of some insane notion that i would miss his cried , he didnt wake the next day we went home im now 19 , my partner is 28 and our son Marley Rae is 3 weeks off being one, we have our own house, income and everything we could possibly need. we practice attachment parenting and have a loving family, Its not easy and anyone wanting to get pregnant wait, wait until you can afford a baby with no assistance, until you have a man that will stick by you theres never a perfect time but your young wait.
i would never regret my son or my family but its trying.
goodluck to you all x

I'm 17 and I found out that I was pregnant a month after my birthday. I was with my baby's dad for 2 years before I was pregnant. It was a complete accident (condom+ birth control) just an opps type of thing. When I had told him that I was pregnant, he wanted nothing to do with me or the baby. He had wanted for me to try for a natural abortion( OD on Calcium pills, ect.) and because I thought I loved him I had tried and I hate myself for it. When I was about 2 and half month pregnant, I was on a school trip and had an accident and fell down a flight a stairs and that same day, all my pregnancy symptoms had gone away. I hated myself and I thought that I had lost my baby. I was so depressed. When I had gotten home from that trip I had told my grandma that I thought I had a miscarriage ( she did not even know I was pregnant). We had went to the doctor and to my surprise he was perfectly fine:) and everything was great. I had to told my bf about it and he told me that I should get an abortion. I refused and I broke up with him on the spot. After experiencing the pain of thinking I had lost my child, I could not actually loose him. I am now 31 weeks pregnant (Due date Oct. 28th), a senior on online high school (graduate Nov. 6th), work as a nanny, and a going-to-be single mom. But keeping my child is the best decision that I could have ever made. To every teen mom out there just keep your head high and don't let anyone tell you you can't do it. I am doing everything by myself and I could not be more proud of myself and I know my son will be proud of me to. Just know that it is hard and challenging and there is a good chance that you have to do it by yourself. Just because we are teenagers does not mean that we can't be good moms. :)

I'm 16 and I have just taken a positive pregnancy test I'm so worried. I'm a foster kid so I don't have family to look after me I live on my own but I have a boyfriend who has been with me for 5 years now. I'm just so scared he won't want this baby

Your so lucky. Ive been with my boyfriend for 2 years and 7 months and I want a baby so bad. We had a pregnancy scare last year and I was so scared but I started to get excited and I missed my period sure to stress. But it was too late cause I told my mom, and now we can't see each other out of school. Its so hard we're still together and I still text and call him but its so scary. she would've let me talk to him if I was pregnant.
I just want my own little family too. Your so lucky, enjoy them<3

Hello Teenage mommy's, I found out I was pregnant at 15 1/2 sitting on a toilet at a party I didn't drink because I had a funny feeling something was going on with me that I hadn't ever experienced, I had my baby boy August 9 2011 I was than 16 years old. He is my whole world and me and his daddy's been together 2 1/2 years being a teen mother can be hard but just be there for your baby and be the person your son or daughter would want you too be!! <3 god gives you the most beautiful things here on earth.

Hi my name is Allan and I am using my girlfriend's account. Katrice (my gf) was 15 when she found out that she was pregnant with another guy. Worse, is that she was going out with me! Of course, being the boyfriend of her, I was shocked and anxious. I really love her and don't want anything bad for her to experience, moreover during her pregnancy. So I supported her all the way until now. FYI, she was pregnant to my best friend, which was pretty heartbreaking for me but anything won't stop us. Katrice is now 21 and I am now 23. She is now pregnant of my child and until now we are living a little family here. Zack (our son from Katrice and my best friend) has been an inspiration to me. I love him like my own son. It was not so easy at first, but then we sticked together (And we still do! :-) and got through the problems. Although 5 years ago, Katrice left Zack alone with me and told me that she couldn't do it, due to her depressive moods and she said she couldn't do it, she's not ready to be a mother, I stayed with Zack for 2 years, raising him up by myself, then Katrice went back with us.

sigh >.> Half of you can't even spell properly.

I'm 16 and pregnant with my third child my first lot were twins I'm still with my boyfriend and yes some people might call me a ***** but I wanted it. I'm still at school and making something of my life my boyfriend is older and my mum supports me all the way I've been through hell but wouldn't give charlotte and Abbie up for anything in the world or my unborn child I'm going to be 17 in march and the baby/babies due at the end of this month. I'm not going to say I'll be with my boyfriend forever things change people change but so long as I can give my children the best possible life that will be enough for me people might say I'm stupid but I'm not going to stop having children I love them and yes labour hurts like a mother f***** but I'd do it everyday to get the end result. :)

I was 15 about to be 16 when i met boyfriend. at the time when I met him I was going throught a rough stage in my life I had been smokinq marijuana for 2 years befor I met him. I started smoking because for once in mi life I felt like a was part of something. Iits been 8 months siince we've been datiinq and already I'm 2 months pregnant but to tell you the truth we did plan on having a child together but I can promise that I have no regrets on getting pregnant I know times will get hard but me and my boyfriend, or shall I say my future husband :) can handle anything.

Im 16 pregnant ill be 17 in a month im 6 months pregnant.My boyfriends 18 and hes in jail doing 3&half years we have a good relationship but we do argue like most people.Crazy thing is i never even thought of having kids before i was so scared when i found out i was pregnant but i belived my boyfriend when he said he was going to help me and that we would move together but a month later i got a call from the precient saying he was in jail.My world crashed down I couldnt belive it i got really sick for awhile i couldnt even eat i was to depressed.I waited into i was 3 months into i had told my parents and his.My mom didnt take it well she verbly abused me for awhile and my dad and his parents were supportive.My mom got use to it after awhile but her and my boyfriend dont get along at all i go see him in jail every week.Its really stressful that he cant be here even though he wants to i cry a lot because i miss him and wish he never got arrested but all i can do is be there for my son and him.Im a senior to and stopped going to school because i dont want people looking at me and my big belly i dont regret my baby boy at all. I do wish i wouldve waitied and finished school and had a job but what can i do whats done is done.

you shouldn't stop going to school yu know? as education helps.. who cares your pregnent and what not? you want it yu have it..!! let others think what they want to.. but be yourself and act normal.. being pregnent doesnt mean losing yur innocence n missing out on the fun.. ignore those who give sarcastic remarks.. im sure peoplel accept you for what yu are nt for wats wrong.. my advice; have the baby, finish school, get a job, get married n den prove it that yurthe strongest..! :) tc..

I found out I was pregnant when I was 14 I was so scared about telling my parents so in the end I didn't and I got an abortion it was neither what me or the babies daddy wanted but we did it anyway It was horrible I was 10 weeks 4 days I had to go and have a scan they turned the screen away so I couldn't see the baby as I wasn't keeping it!:( I had to go into hospital to get the abortion as the baby had a heart beat its the worst decision I have ever made I regret it everyday and to make it worse my boyfriends sister was pregnant at the same time and only two weeks infront of me so now it's hard seeing her with her son if I could go back and change what I did I would :(

Coz wen u ll grow up nd become a working lady or a responsible women then u ll b prepare for giving birth to a child.. Think if u r having a baby right now then u cant even nourish him.. U r not able to give a child everything he or she need.. So firstly b a working women nd then decide to hv a baby.. God bless

I was 14 years old when i met my boyfriend in high school, he was a senior and i was a freshman. I was what you call a "bad girl" and he was a "good boy." well anyways i had a very rough life before i met him, i lived in a bad home. I got melested when i was a child by a family member, then again when i was older by my moms ex boyfriend. My uncle beat me up because he was angry with my aunt and mom, btw it was in front of my little cousins, his daughters. My mom decided itd be best it i live with her bf and he melested me 2 times. My mom didnt believe me and i made a police report & he was recorded on tape admitting it and apoligizing for it. The cops called my mom and asked if she wanted to pursue she lied and told them i didnt. Then my mother still saw him in secret from me even after knowing this man tried to<br />
Rape me! She still didnt believe me. Btw all this happened before i met my bf. while i was going out with my bf she decided to have what she calls a "nervous breakdown." she was abusive she hit me, bruised me, threaten me, everything it was horrible. She told me "i want to stab u with a knife and kill you." when i mean bad i mean badly abused! Oh and i forgot she made a scene at a docs office saying she wanted to give me up for adoption and telling them she cant handle me, which is bs she was the one abusing. Then they sent a social worker<br />
And all that bs she made me act & say everything was okay. Then when i was 15 i got preg by my boyfriend and i decided to move out because i didnt want my baby sleeping in a living room on a couch, condo infested with roaches. She didnt fight me when i moved she wanted me out of there anyways! I was also scared she was gonna hurt me while preg she would get in my face and push me. So i left, and was living there for 17 months raising my daughter. Then my bf and i decide we want to move to another state, so he moves and gets an apartment and job there hes been for a month and half there. We r suposed to move there today me and my daughter were suposed to be on that plane!:'( my mom all of a sudden wants to make me come home with my daughter! I forgot she all of sudden turned into a christian as what they call themselves its not that its a cult! She called the cops and even the cops were saying she wants to be super mom now and finally grew up to take care of u, she made me come back but i left my daughter in the care of my mother in law where i was living just 2 days ago. She even asked the cops about my daughter, she wants my baby she thinks since she failed raising me<br />
And my sister she can take my bby! Btw forgot to mention my sis was doing bad stuff and then she was out one night and was raped. My mom blames her for it and is trying to make her go to the same school where people are going to prob harass her. She didnt let her stay with my dad, she is a control freak. ;( my bf is over there and he is still wowed about this i love him so much! I also forgot to mention we were gonna get married my mom kept bugging about us getting mArried all the time, when he came a d asked her if she would sign me off so we can marry thats when she said no. She is trying to control me and keep me here in 2 months ill be 17 and then i think im going to fight her because she has no right to do this:( i need some advice somebody pleAse! Yesterday was our aniversary 28 months;( and our baby turned a year on the 18! Gosh this is the worst thing in the world:( i am devastated because she wants my daughter<br />

hi teenage moms out there i am isabel. 18 years old right now. i was pregnant when i was 17. And my baby now is turning 1yr old. me and my boyfriend are living together since i was pregnant. but before that were like live in before i got pregnant. he never leaves me or what. he support me as he can. because are family has a financial support, even though its really hard to be a MOTHER. you only not being a mother to your child but being a wife to your husband its really hard.. like now we had an arguement, i feel to broke up with him there are so much pain in my heart but he never appreciate the works i do, i dont know what to do, i love him but i want to broke up on him, :( but how can i move on help me pleaseee...

Hie isabel.. How are you nd ur cute baby??
Dear as my views you should talk about it with ur bf /husband that u r facing problems nd troubles bcoz of his behavior.. Look dear u r grown up guyz with a sweet lil baby so you must not act like kidz anymore.. Just make urself calmdown and talk to him. You guyz have to make ur career too for u nd most importantly for ur baby.. Try to finish ur education and get a job so that u can make urself financially stronger.. Please donn think to leave ur bf or u ll separate ur baby frm his father..

Me and my boyfriend have been dating for a year and almost 5. Im 16 and hes 18 he works full time I dont really have a job but I am currently looking. We both want to have a baby we know its going to be hard but I know my mom and some of his family will be supportive. We have been trying for a little bit but no luck. If you have any advice good or bad I'd be happy to listen :)

Hello babe.. U didnt mantioned here that u hv completed ur education or not.. Becoz education is must for one"s survival in this age.. Babe after that u must have a job so that u wud make urself financialy stronger.. Babe apart from these thingz u must think about ur age bcoz u r very youg to consieve a child right now.. I am a doctor and i know in the age of 16 ur reproductive organs are not strongly vdeveloped.. Nd its really a high risk for ur health to concieve a baby.. U must be think about it after 18.. Go get a jon finish ur education nd then make plans for kidz.. Till den njoy d beautifull life travel the world and be a lil mature.. Love pihu

im 16 years old and 7 weeks pregnant.. i started having morning sickness around a week ago .. my boyfriend is 18 and he is very supportive the last couple weeks. seeing so many moms being single mothers because they realize there fathers were not the one scares me. i also have not told my parents i dont know how to tell them or what to even say.. if anybody has any advice it will be greatly appriceated

Tell Your Mom As Soon As Possible I Hid It From Everyone Until I Was Going On Four Month's Its Not Easy , She Will Be Disappointed But It's A Judge Weight Lifted Off Your Sholders Trust Me (:

I am 15 years old, and 22 weeks, 4 days pregnant. I will be 16 by the time I have my baby boy Hayden, and I am still with the father. I also met him when I was 14, and he was 17. He will be 19 by the time we have Hayden. I still live with my mom and step dad, and they're very supporting. They just bought me a new vehicle, and my mom has been paying for everything, and I'm really greatful to have her. I think everything will turn out to be fine if I finish school and do something with my life. My boyfriend has graduated high school, and he's taking classes online in September, and my due date is September 29th. <br />
Teen mom's can be great mothers too. Don't judge someone until you have walked in their shoes. I'm working my hardest for my baby boy, and he has totally changed my life around. It's amazing how someone I haven't even met yet, already has my whole heart. I promise I will make sure he is taken care of, and happy. He is my world, and I'm so glad to have such a wonderful miracle in my life.<br />
Bless all of you teen mothers, we are strong ladies.

Hi I'm 16 and 2 to 4 weeks pregnant. My mom was with me when I went to the doctor to get a test and that's when I found out I was pregnant. I was scared . I thinking that my family will hate me. So far i have the babys. Daddy, my mom, and my aunt to help me. I'm scared of what my uncles might think I love them so much. My mom is a single mother and had me at 17 . I have a feeling that the father of my baby or babies won't be around. Honestly that doesn't effect me ive seen my mother raise me and my brother on her own nd I know I can to . I just hope i don't upset my uncles . I got alot of faith and hope.

Hey there! This is a really amazing story. I'm also a teenage mom. 14 about to be 15, with a wonderful baby boy who has also became my world! I've been with his father for 2 years, and now we have this little family together.

im14 and last month i found out i was pregnant. I was both scared and happy. When i told my boyfriend he didnt get mad or sad or ask if i wanted to get an abortion he had a biggo smile on his face and said he was happy he was going to be dad. Then i had a miscarriage. And now me and my boyfriend he's 17, are PLANNING on having a baby, i know this sounds so stupid but i know hes gonna be there and the fact that i was getting sooo used to the fact that i was having a baby then when i found out i lost it made me want one even more :) <br />
<br />
But thank you your story shows you are a strong woman, you have inspired me.

im sixteen, and i found out i was pregnant yesterday. i didn't do it on purpose, nor for attention. i know it's gonna be hard, and as for right now, my boyfriends being really supportive. it's not something to look down on someone for. do you know how scary it is? i would never do this on purpose. but im going to stick it through, and care for my child. i respect your guy's opinions, everyone has them, but not all sixteen year olds do it on purpose.

Sounds like a dreamy fairy tale that really DOESN'T happen to very many REAL teen mommies. (sarcastic)<br />
<br />
So don't even think about getting knocked up even with the trueeeee looooove of your life until you're both old enough to get married and support your damn family. :P

I'm not tryn to b a ***** but y'all should really watch wat yu do, if yu gun have sex b carefull cuz yu gun have to face to conciquence if yu don't. And I know people make mistakes and all dont get me wrong. I think what's fuked up is teenage girl gettin pregnant, espessialy 13 old like wtf, Some girls do it for attention, like if yu aint pregnant, yu aint cool lol. nd for sum wateva happens happens. Don't get me all wrong nd **** but that's how I feel. You guys take care

Well not trying to be rude either but I can certainly point out that all of these girls have maturely stepped up to parenthood and as for telling them to be careful, these things happen. I think you should take notice of the intelligence behind their posts instead of informing them of your pointless opinions. Last but not least I'd like to point out that their spelling and grammar should get them somewhere as in your post you lacked knowledge of the English language. For example 'Yu', 'sum' and 'watever' are misspelt.

Jessica, those are all the wrong reasons to have a baby. I understand your loss, but think of the challenges. Having a baby is a HUGE responsibility. They are with you 24/7. It is not like baby sitting at all. What if your baby has health issues (heaven forbid) Are you ready to handle that? Behavioural problems? The financial burden. What if it doesn't make anything better - but rather, strains your family even further? Can you handle that? I know it's a terrible thing to think of, but what if you and your boyfriend break up? Can you handle being a single mother? Can you afford it if he refuses to pay child support?
Focus on you. Be happy with yourself. Get a good education, create a loving home. Then introduce children.
I had my baby when I was 18. I love her more than anything in the world. She is six years old today, and I can't imagine life without her. But I gave up a lot to take care of her. It strained my family relationships. I spent a long time as a single mother. Looking back now, I don't regret having her, but I do wish I had've waited a few more years. Good luck hun, take care of you and yours.

I'm 16, 17 in 2months I've been with my boyfriend for a year now. we have had a lot of pregnancy scares i really want a baby I've read up on money things how much it all costs and everything. i really do think its a blessing, but when comments are said that its not all cracked up to be then that's when i start to worry. i love to hear lots of young people are bring little ones in to the world, babies are just the cutest things in the world!!!! I've spoke to my boyfriend about having one, he does want one with me and know one else but knows it will cost a lot. With the comments on here with the girlies that have already got a born child... is it expensive that every says it really is, or is it just comfy to know you have support just in case. I'm a part timer at a large company shop i earn about £250-£350 a month .... minimum wage sucks!!! my boyfriend hes 18 and earns about £400 a month. with child benefits and little family help is that enough. and does taking birth hurt?!!!!! THANKS :) :)

I'm16 and 6 weeks pregnant i am still with the babies dad and he has told all his family and they are so exited, but the thing is i havent told mine ;/ i am so scared to tell them i havent slept properly and not eating properly either as i am so scared of what my mum is going to say as my mum &dad are so strict i really want this baby,just need advice on how to tell he as i am so sceard its unreal :(

i am 16 and my boyfriend is 20, we have been together for a year now, but im still a secret to all his friends, and his family hates me because of my age, and well, we had sex, and i think i may end up getting pregnant. i am so scared. i ended my period and i had unprotected sex, i guess now its just the waiting game? i have no friends, sad to say but they all turned on me when i left school. my sister was a teen mom and she is 22 and pregnant with her second child. i dont want to be like her, but if i am pregnant, i know i will try and be the best mommy... i wouldnt want my child to have to go through what i did......

hi, i now exactly what u went through, i got pregnant at 16, when my daughter was 14 months i found out i was pregnant again, i now have a 3 yr old, a 9 month old and found out im 3 months pregnant, i get married in 3 months, and im only 20. i have my own house and car so it all happened for a reason xx

Hi im 17 and pregnant with a little boy who is already my world me and the baby's dad are currently together. We are a backwood southern couple who were scared to parents even thougt we both love kids. Im currently still in high school and he is working full time girls who arent pregnant and are trying im not trying to change your mind by no means but its very hard going to school and being pregnant, I have had to put my career on hold,I dont hang out with none of my friends like i used too. I mean being pregnant is a wonderful thing when your ready for what is has to throw at you. But when you dont have money or a job i can be tough. BUT for those who are pregnant stay strong and stay as happy as possible because your baby knows when your mad , screaming, fighting , crying <br />
<br />
much love too all you momma <br />
XOXO-Sam

I am 16 years old and am in an amazing relationship with my boyfriend... he just recently asked me to marry him and of course I said yes. I never take the ring off. I love him so much and we are now thinking about trying to have a baby soon. When I read this post I started to cry cause I know what a hard life it will be after. But I believe it will be worth it. My mom runs a home daycare and I grew up with all the daycare kids that have come here. I treat them as if they were my own. When my fiance and I started dating and came over with the kids I saw how amazing he was with them. We had started talking about it a while ago and have currently decided that it will be a good idea. He is not in school anymore but he is working full time as i am finishing high school and working part time. We know nothing is going to be easy and understand the risks but we are both ready for a family. I know I am young and my parents will probably try and kill me but my mom was pregnant at 17, not purposly, and is a single mom now with 2 kids, myself and my brother who is a marine. I also understand a baby is not something you can just put to the side or throw it away when it's bad. I am ready to care, love and support this baby no matter what goes wrong. <br />
<br />
I congradulate and support all the teen moms for everything they have been through. Never give up and know you have a mericle!!

Well, i am 16 and not pregnant. When i was 15 i almost had sex with my bf.....i was in the process of it (if u knw wat i mean) but i had put and end to it.... i was so scared!!!! i did many things that made me feel worthless and stupid!!!! i am proud that i did not go through with it but ashamed of all the wrong i did!!! I had a group of so called friends and i they have influenced me in doing so much wrong...me the fool listened to them. Many of my so called friends are not virgins and i alwayz felt odd around them when they told me about their personal life. i am trying to change to become a better and stronger person!!! i have set in my mind that when i know that i am completely changed and know that i am the person i want to be, i will tell my parents. i dont want to tell them and say that i am changed and in truth i have not, so i am trying hard to be a better me. i know at this point i have many flaws i have to work out and i am not changed completely so i continue to try. Do you think what i am doing is the best choice???? i am not doing this just so they can forgive me but also so i can feel good about myself. I am proud of you girls who have raised your children at a young age and i know that they will return the same love you have given them! I cannot imagine how hard it must be but rewarding at the same time.......i am sure your little ones are so cute and are the joys of your life....thank you for sharing your story. To those who are currently pregnant, dont worry! Yes, the road ahead will be rough but at the end it all comes down to you and the love of your baby inside of you. don't have an abortion because later on you might regret it. All my love goes out to ya'll!!!

hi,im breanna im 14 gonna be 15 in October and i know this is gonna sound weird sense im only 14 technically 15 at least i consider me 15 but anyways i want a baby and me and my boyfriend who is 16 wants one to he even told me he wanted one and i said so do i so im planing on possibley getting pregnant around a little after christmas but the down part is i have no idea how im gonna tell my mom im pregnant after i get pregnant i know for a fact she will probley diss owen me thats why if that happens i get to move in with my boyfriend and his parents and i knwo this was totally random but its true waht do i do?

im a 16 year old mum to be, i was scared at first and my mum was upset of the thought of me being a teenage mum but she came round to it. my boyfriend lives with me and we are over the moon, we find out next monday what the sex is and i cant wait (: babys due in october and it wil be the happiest day of my life...

to the teenagers out there please I may not going to push you or tolerating to engage in a sexual relationship but please if you would do so there are many options on how to prevent pregnancy.better read some tips of safer sex.but better yet think of your future first so that your parents will be proud of you when you finish first your studies.you must give your self and your trust to someone who worth for it and responsible enough to all your decisions and actions in life.be much open for communication with your parents.

I was only 16 when I got pregnant. At that time I was studying in my College Degree. It's hard to study while keeping something when it is only you who knows about the situation. We kept our situation for 6months, but my school found out about my situation and they decided to drop.<br />
<br />
I told my parents I was pregnant. I thought they would scold me or hit me. But what happened is the opposite. They supported me and gave everything Me and my baby needs. Although I know I've hurt them, still they showed me how much they loved me.<br />
<br />
So June 24, 2010 when I gave birth. Everything about me changed, but it changed for the better, I learned to be more matured and think of others, not only for myself. I am blesses to know who my real friends are, and that my family loves me so much. And yes, I am blesses because God exposed me because He loved me! God disciplines whom He love. :)<br />
<br />
It may be hard being a teen Mom, but it will be easy if you let God help you in guiding your child. :)

wow . thats good that everything worked out for you !

I am now 34 years old and my 20 year old son is a junior in college and my 18 year old daughter is graduating from high school. When I was 13 years old I started dating an older guy Robert. He was 16. I got pregnant right away and when I told my boyfriend he reacted badly he beat me unconscious and left me laying on his living room floor bleeding (his parents were not home). His best friend Shawn found me and called an ambulance. I had to spend a week in the hospital, my boyfriend went to jail, my parents kicked me out of their house, I moved in with my best friend her parents were foster parents. while I was pregnant I became close with Shawn and when my son was born he asked to be listed as his father on the birth certificate, he said no one should have to be ashamed of their father. When I got pregnant with our daughter we got married and he helped me get my GED when I was 15 and I started taking college at the same time as he did. He now teaches computer science at a university and I teach history at an online university and community college we also have 3 children who are in elementary school. I adore my husband but I wish we would have been able to finnish our childhood before becoming parents. I love my children and I do not want them to have to go through the same things I did.

Sex 9-16 days after your period should do the trick

Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I too am a teen mother. I am in school in Amsterdam currently and I am doing a research project on teen motherhood and how to diminish negative stereotypes about us. The survey is very quick and if you are American and a teen mother it would mean so much to me if you could complete it!<br />

Im living wif my mate an im 6 months pregnant wif twin girls): so please if u could give me any advice that culd help me eitha nw or in da future dat wuld be great.<br />
Thanx heaps 4 ur tym(:

i hope everything goes well with you ... did your babys daddy get in trouble ... and i home that your twin lives ...

Im sixteen and pregnet. Ive been pregnet before with the same guy a year ago, but he left me and because of the stress i had a misscarriage. But for an odd reason i forgave him and my parents did too. But now a year later and pregnet im more than terrified. I just moved out of state and me and my boyfriend are still together and he wants to marry me (how much i trust that idk) but if this was the first time, id have no problem telling my parents. They were mad but very understanding. I love my boyfriend and i feel blessed to be sixteen and actually mean that. But the fear of whats gonna happen is preventing me from telling my parents. I want to really bad but i dont wanna dissapoint anyone. Plus my 24 year old sister is pregnet too and theyre all concentrated on her. If me and my boyfriend do end up getting married, then cool. If not i think im royally screwed. Help? /:

I am 16 and I am 21 weeks pregnant and so happy about it I am not scared because I know I am not the only one who is pregnant at this stage of Age.. well somebody may think its too early but I wont because like my nurse sad There is never right time for Being pregnant So just enjoy the time. I will never ever say YES to Abortion because I think its somehow Murderring for small baby who cant stand for themselves... I have a very nice boyfriend we are going to get merrid before baby is born so I am happy.. :)

Having said that (that was to the girls who are ALREADY pregnant). If you are not pregnant, please wait until you are married. There is nothing greater than the feeling of having a husband to share in your children with. Yes, you will miss out on things as a teen mom. Accept it, get over it. The circumstances you have now, your friends, your boyfriends, will not MATTER in 10 years from now, and you will have wasted time on people who aren't going to matter later on, instead of being with your baby! Don't let anyone else raise your child because you will regret it so much later, you will feel like you lost someone you love- and you will have missed out on the best years of your life with your baby! You will find yourself having more children to fill the 'loss' you created in your own life. I had 2 more children to enjoy the baby years. Everytime I look at my baby boy I think of when my 6 year old was that age and I cry. I was going out with friends instead of being with him. What a waste, because those people are NOT in my life anymore. So please wait...it's the best thing.

To ALL the girls in this forum: Do not let people tell you that you won't have sucess in life just because you had a baby young! I have 3 children, and I am 25 today. My first baby- I got pregnant with at 17, I graduated highschool 6 weeks later. The father left me, but I met my husband. I went to college, and got a degree. We just started our own business. Now, I am glad that I had my kids young, even though it was rough. I think the real problem are older women who have babies, they don't think about how their children will end up alone because they will be dead by the time their child is in college! They are selfish and want to live their life, then decide later they want kids. Don't let these OLDER women tell you being a teenage mother is wrong. It is hard, yes. Having a husband is the best because having a PARTNER in life makes life easier. So please keep that in mind. The key is to have GOALS! NOT having goals is the only thing that will hurt you. In 10 years from now, you will either be like me, or you will have 6 more kids and be on welfare- you decide which YOU want and go for it.

Has anyone thought that the reason they are getting pregnant is because you all are having sex!!! I'm 16 as well, but I am saving myself for someone special, on the special night of my wedding day. Some girls are lie, "Oh, I didn't know I'd get pregnant! Oh no!" and I always thin, what did you do to make you become pregnant? Then some want to have abortions and kill innocent lives, without even guessing at what their little babies, even born out of wedlock, could do for the world! I wish some teens would think before they decide to have sex, and not after once the baby is born.

im 17 and 13 weeks pregnant, and still with the babies dad, doctors say its amazing that i got pregnant bcause i was on the implant and using contraception but i fell pregnant in October and i couldnt be anymore happier :) my baby is due on 8th july.<br />
i was scared too tell my parents because they was both highly religious Christians but i soon found the courage and they both decided they will support me. <br />
<br />
when i told the babies father he was so overwhelmed and excited, he had already started picking out baby names. he has decided that we will get married when i am 18 next year.<br />
your story was very touching and gave me the courage that i can do this and be a teenage mom.<br />
<br />
thanks for being inspiring. <br />

hi im 16 and pregant and i would like some advice because my parents want me to have an abortion,but the rest of my family want an adoption and one of my aunt offered to adopt my baby but the only thing i really want is to have a happy family.my boyfriend is 20 and he still lives with his parents and is not willing to be responsable to take care of his baby.i really want to keep my baby,because his mkine and he came out of me but the only problem is my parents they dont understand.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)thanks for the help and also very good storie and very intresting.

Hello:) <br />
Well girls I'm 17 and i have a baby girl who is 6 months now. I started going out with my baby's dad at the age of 14 on May 31 2008, which by that time he was 16.... i got pregnant on August 24, 2009, 2 months after my sweet sixteen=/ && its amazing how life changes... i just really hope that all you girls out there who are not pregnant think about what are you all are going to do before you do it.... yessss, i love and enjoy having my baby and i wouldn't trade her beautiful smile for anything in the world, but you all can wait and enjoy your life as a normal high school student, trust me growing up so fast is not cool as many teen moms make it seem... Now that i have my baby and her father is not around i think about all those stupid things i did for him... LOVE IS THE MOST PRECIOUS FEELING IN THE WORLD, BUT IT MAKES YOU BLIND && DEAF... ENJOY YOUR LIFE AS A TEENAGER!!!:)

I wish all of you all the luck in the world, I am sixteen and no im not pregnant. I've never had sex actually. But I find teenage pregnancy's interesting. For some odd reason? It's just weird to see girls my age pregnant like were still SO young. And I commend all of you who are pregnant and the girl in this story for being so young and being pregnant and still being responsible about the situation and being a great mom. Wheather the father is there or not. Guys are going to be guys and if he sticks around good for him and if not thats his lost. but again I commend you becuase I don't know how I would be able to tell my mother or deal with being pregnant all together this young. I can barley handle school right now by myself! and thats why i've chosen not to have sex yet i'm too paranoid about getting pregnant, plus boys arent mature enough to handle sex the right way in highschool. They just want it for the pleasure I want it for the emotional side as well as the pleasure and they don't see that and I wouldn't want to get pregnant and not have the baby's dad in my life I'd be so mad at myself for doing so. But no disrespect to any of you, Good luck and keep your heads up !

very strong lady. cant belive that your still with him congratz and im 13 years old 14 in march,the baby daddy knows but he wont admit to it.. i live with my grandmother . my mom doesnt know and my dads in jail. i found out yesterday that im 5 weeks prego. my best friend took me to the health center but im scared my grandmothers going to kick me out cuz she already said that if i ever get prego. that she would what do i do???

hi my name is alyssia rodriguez im not pregnant im 12 and i need someone to do my social studies fair on im not tryin to get into your buisness i just need someone to do it on so plz help me i told my teacher i would do it on teenage pregnancies so i just wanna ask a few questions message me at rodriguezalyssia28@yahoo.com thank you anyone who is offering to help me!!!!!!

Like most of you I had my son when i was 15. He just turned 12. I went through alot also. My mom kicked me out my father let me stay with him. After my son was born my bf (the babys father) was only allowed around at certain times and i felt like i was being forced into being a single mother while going to school. I graduated with high honers and got a job, then moved in with the babys father. We had another son when I turned 21. Since then we have divorced and I found a better guy to spend my life with. Now I am 29 and I have 7 children and they are my life!

It sadens me to hear all of these stories of girls so young having babies. It is very hard to be a teen mom, and even harder if the father isnt there. I had my first child at the age of 16, and now at the age of 25 I have three! I am very blessed to have such wonderful kids, but everyday is a challenge! I wouldnt change things now but at that age you are still a child yourself, and that young you can not provide what your child needs or deserves! You cannot sign in to a contract to provide your own home, and you wouldnt have finished school yet either so you probably wouldnt have a very good paying job! I want to give my children the world and I work very hard everyday to provide for them the best that I can! Please girls really think about what you are doing and realize that it isnt easy and if you are not ready to step up and grow up to give your child your best, then rethink what it is that you are doing and wait!!!! Our children our the future so lets not ruin that!! And to those that are already pregnant Congrats and good luck in this adventure that will last a life time!

Early Mom: WHy?

read my article about why teenage engage into sex.. Early Mom: WHy?

I was seventeen when I had my now 3 year old son, Aden. I was TERRIFIED to tell my parents because they too were teen parents ( they were 15 when my mother had me). All my life I'd heard how hard it was raising a child when you're still a child yourself. But it never sank in until the dr handed me my son and.. life began. It wasn't just worrying about what to wear to high school or who was dating who anymore. It was working nights and weekends to buy diapers and formula. It was getting off work to come home and stay up all night with a collicky infant, and TRYING to study for school between feedings and diaper changes. Aden's father and I stayed together until he was two months old. I then realized I had grown up and he hadn't. And it was time to move on. Slowly, he fell out of contact with Aden. It broke my heart, but I see now that it was best for him not to be in his life. Two years ago I met the man I'm with now, and he's always considered Aden his own son. he's a good man and provides more than I could ever ask for. We recently just had our second son, Weston. I never thought I would be a mother of two at the age of 20. But my family has been the greatest blessing God could give me. It's a struggle everyday, but once they're here and in your arms all seems ok in the world. I wouldn't go back now, but sometimes I wonder what the road had been like if I had grown up in the way society intended me to. Being able to go off to college, parties on the weekend, trips out with girlfriends.. they're all something I as a seventeen year old had to give up. Think before you act. Children are blessings in many ways, but they're intented for AFTER you've done your own growing up. Blessings to all teen moms or expecting mothers, and good luck.

I am currently 19 and have a 2 1/2 year old son. I can tell you this bein a teen mom is really hard, especially when you and your baby's dad do not last and then you become a SINGLE TEEN mom. Most guys say they are going to be there but when it all comes do to it most of them do not want to have to grow up and quit the partying everynight and always hanging out with your friends. It gets really hard between work, being a college student, and being the mom my son deserves. I want Him to have the things that I didn;t get to have because I was from a divorced family. In a way I guess you could say I feel like I let him down. When you become a mother everything changes. Everything gets a lot harder. I can honestly say if I could get the SAME EXACT son that I have now 5 years from now than I would love to have waited.

i think its great that you and the baby's dad are still together i had my first pregnacy about a yr ago but lost it.. now about 1 year later about the same time when i lost my first i am now 16 and pregnant(18weeks) weff my first child baby Logan hes is a miracle so well my doc's say i was on birth control n we used protection trying to provent what happen b4..but exactly what we didnt want was to get pregnant again .. but now we've got a miracle.. the docs say i was always early for my shot (depo) and never missed it. we dont exactly know what went wrong but we are very happy now were having a beautiful baby boy named logan.. my boyfriend and I are planing on getting married a year after baby Logan is born . we have to wait till im 18.His age ..Well not gonna say but a couple years older than me but which thats fine. Like you said not very many girls get to stay with there babys father but im very lucky ive known my boyfriend for many years we've been togther for about 3 years and sum months. known him 2years b4 we got togther. i wasnt so much scared to tell my mom but she was very shocked only because i was on depo. but my dad was extremly happy my boyfriends mom wasnt happy at all until my 4th month. she happy then ever so is my moma ... we've got all the help we need but in my case i kant get a job i got a record and i need him to find one right away economy is bad and hard to get jobs these days! :() familys are gonna give us all the help we need. im happy as i could ever be.. no symptoms for me but myboyfriend is another case he gets real bad symtoms. i also think im lucky to still be with my babys father .i fell in love with a guy who know his responsibity and will take action .. it takes a man to own up to it.i love him dearly we've been threw the worst things you could possibly imagine.. that is why we have stuck togother for as long aS we have it only made us stronger. we know that what evr happens we'll get threw it.we would never change anything. my name is veronica and i am touch by your story...,V

hi. i have a friend who is 15 and she is prego and she told her grandma and she didnt freak but she still has to tell her mom. she's really nervous to tell her. got any good advice? and the day i found out that she was progo i was crying bc we were ganna go to college and get married and then have babies mostly at the same time, so they could grow up together and be the bestest of friends, now thats not ganna happen as planned. but if you have any advice for me, to tell her bout tellin her mom that she is prego, plz right back. im in need for help and so is she.

I'm 15 and I have recently found out that I'm eight weeks pregnant with my 22 year old boyfriends baby. I am so scared that my mum and dad will kick me out.

Oh you have to tell him plus he could be in a lot of trouble for having sex with you. I talking jail time him you are A minor he's A adult very touchy subject here they may have your boy friend arrested for this. But they need to know this period it's A big decision on your part.

I'm 16 and i might be pregnant.. The guy i really love but wants me to abort and i refuse... I'm scared, my mom will send me to a church for unwed teen mothers away from the father and everything..

Do not force him to abort your baby if you don't want too it's your choice not his period. He's just thinking with his little head again if he didn't want the baby he should have put A cover over that little head.

Im 16 and 13 weeks & 5 days pregnant i was very scared to tell my parents as any teenage girl would be, but they reacted alot different to what i expected they are very supportive & they cant wait for the baby to be born, i am still with the baby's father and i dont plan on changing that, but i saw a few people were asking what symptoms they had, well i obviously missed my period but then i started bleeding so i thought i wasnt pregnant but the next day i stopped bleeding anyway i thought nothing off it and just went on as normall..as the weeks went past i noticed i seemd to be going to the toilet more, eating more & was constantly tierd ( lack off iron in my body did effect this ) also my boobs was very pain full to touch & they got bigger as they do LOl o yeh i also went very moody over nothing! that is when i decided to do a pregnancy test which come up positive at first i was very scared but mainly because i had to tell my mom and dad and i thought they was going to diss own me but actully it was the total opposite of what i thought they was going to say, so dont worry to tell your parents just dont keep it in to your self because it does hurt.<br />
by the way this probly dont make sence im hopeless with things like this, sorry :) all the best x

Very good advise your parents should know this they can help out in many ways in what to do and for your self being too.

I'm 14 and I'm perguant Im 6th month. I'm having my baby boy on December 10th. The father is in to much trouble so i left him but now I'm sad about it i want my baby to have his daddy there. And I'm turinng 15 in November!!

heyy-<br />
<br />
Im 16-<br />
<br />
I just found out that i am 8 weeks pregnant!<br />
<br />
Sad part is. i already departed from my babies daddy. <br />
<br />
I moved on to a better person who treats me amazing.<br />
<br />
But. the babies dad. Ran over my current boyfriend with a car. && He is currently in jail. <br />
<br />
I dont feel that i should make Ryan apart of my babies life. just cuz how the way he treated me was horrid. & the drugs is a constantt thing. i really couldnt handle all of that. i dont think that he could be a good father to my baby. but on the other hand. my boyfriend Daniel. has a baby already and i know he could help me out. and i really think he is a good dad. i stood through alot with him. and my feelings just keep growing stronger for him everyday. i love him. && He knows about the baby being ryan's and he still wants to be a part in the babys life. but im just scared. i mean. what name should i put on the birth certificate???? <br />
<br />
see not all the easy! <br />
<br />
I think that daniel would be a way better father to my baby than ryan can. <br />
<br />
he is constantly in trouble. and i dont want my kid growing up watching his or her father going in and out of jail. <br />
<br />
Im sure ryan should know that he has a kid out there. just i dont think he should be in the babys life. <br />
<br />
am i right?<br />
<br />
please help!!!!!!!!!!!

Put the baby father name on birth Certificate he's the father but your new boy friend can be A father too raising your baby with you.But when your old boy friend gets out of prison he's needs to help support his child then and be in the Childs life too.
