My Name Is Ashley, And This Is My Story.Hello, my name is Ashley, I am nearly 16 years old (in December) and I am currently in grade 11 (: I am the type that loves school.
In my last months of grade 9 I found out I was pregnant. I had no idea what to do or what to think, and where to start first or who to tell.. My boyfriend was very worried and nervous as well. Yes, I know don't have sex if you aren't ready for a kid, ultimently it was my decision. I did decide to keep my son. I was so scared I hid my pregnancy for 7 months. I had no prenatal care what so ever before, yes, I was an idiot I get it.. I regret it. I stayed in school and I never dropped out because of my son. I took responsibility and did what was right. I had him at the age of 14 on Nov. 09/11. He was 7lbs 10oz and 19.3 inches long. I am a proud teen mom. I am still with the father of my son and we will have been together for 2 years in November. Our son, Dallas, is now 10 months old and such a happy baby!
With all this though, I had a high-risk pregnancy becuase they had to do an emergency induction because they found of I had preeclampsia.. My blood pressure was so high they said I could have started to have a seizure.
After, I was anemic for a while, but that cleared up (: I also struggled with PPD but I am quite sure that is better now, and my doctor just sees me as bi-polar.
I take 3 lithium (stabilizer) pills at night for my hyperness along with 1 anti-depressant in the morning for my depression.
It also hasn't really been helping too much because my life at home with my mom is just getting worse, all we have been doing in clashing heads lately. My boyfriend, Jake has serious back issues. kjshgogrihetohj.. That's how I feel most of the time.
I would love to here your stories and meet new people, thanks for reading.
