Did you get pregnant on accident ( I did @17) or was it because you wanted a baby? I just don't understand why a 15 or 16 year old would WANT a baby. It's beyond me. Bad home life? Never thought they felt loved? Crave attention from a man and figure this is the only way to keep him? For me it was a missed birth control pill and I didn't want to be pregnant.

Good question I think it is a growing problem in America. Teenagers wanting to have babies instead of going to prom and doing high school things. Makes me wonder about their parents??? I would be crushed if I found out my son got a girl pregnant.

salexander.... even if the OP was a teen mom or got prego on purpose it's okay to brush teen pregnancy under the rug? I do think that there are teen mom's that turn out well and others that struggle. Saying it's okay to get pregnant as a teen to me is the same as making excuses for child obesity. It's a problem but people choose to ignore it.
