  • i got pregnant at 16 and had my baby at 17. i hid my pregnancy up until 8 months and had no prenatal care and because of things that happnd earlier in my life that i dont feel so comfortable talking about i found out when i was 8 months (cause i finally told my parents, got slapped and kicked out"they say because i didnt tell them) that i had an STD that because i didnt seek prenatal care earlier could have effected the development of my baby's lungs. not the smartest thing to do. he came out fine though, but i never should've risked his life just because i was scared to tell my parents. my parents love me and even after i was kicked out they brought me back because life was just too hard.

  • I think its got to be the dumbest thing to hide something that serious from anyone in your life.. especially if those ppl are ur support system. Prenatal care is SO important, especially for a teen pregnancy, where so many complications could arise. Think about it this way... nothing can be said or done today that wont be said or done when ur 8 months pregnant or showing. Why not get it over with now and save the drama of a lie? Your baby is worth so much more. Gl...
