  • Yes. I got pregnant in high school and I was just leaving an abusive relationship and didn't wan to deal with a baby at the time. I miscarried though.

  • Yep. I was 17 and pregnant. I was having the time of my life. I had a scholarship, a job, new car, all sorts of friends and boom Im pregnant. I knew I would never ever get an abortion so I had my dd. Shes almost 22 now and has 2 kids of her own. Having her obviously changed everything. It changed the direction of my life completely. I loved her the minute I laid my eyes on her.

  • Actually my 2nd pregnancy....

    I gave up on the idea of having kids. My oldest was 8 and I have been trying for 6 years to get pregnant. I left my DH and hooked up with a fling, and wouldn't you know... I got pregnant. I was devestated. Really. (Hubby took me back when Mr. Fling said NO way would he be a father)

    I didn't try to bond with her in the belly. I wouldn't entertain the thought of keeping her. When I found out I was pregnant I was 3 months along. So, chances of me miscarrying were low, that sucked!!!

    Even going into labor I still wasn't sure what I was going to do. Putting her up for adoption was the best thing I could think of. Of course hubby and DD were upset by that, but my mind (I thought) was made up.

    Once I saw her face, I started crying. I loved her instantly. I could not imagine giving her up. I was planning on just leaving her at the hospital, so sad.

    I am SO glad I kept my baby girl!
