I go out of my house into the neighborhood I grew up in and I get the look from EVERYONE. I made a mistake. I am an ignorant teenage girl who fucked up (excuse my wording).
But I didn't. I didn't make a mistake. I got married, I wanted a baby, I'm having a baby.
Before my wedding ring became too tight and had to be taken off, it was still the same. No one seemed to notice I was married. I had a man to "take care of me". I'm nineteen, sure, but I'm not stupid. I know sex = babies, and I intentionally had unprotected sex with my husband in hopes of getting a baby. Is this wrong? (My husband is 30 and didn't want to be like his father, who was 32 and took no note of him as a child, so yes, I admit, I didn't see kids in my future till mid-twenties, but I still always saw kids in my future.)
I was an unplanned pregnancy, as was my own mother. If there is one thing that I am sure of, even over "There is a God", it is that unplanned does not mean unwanted.
Do you get treated this way? Did you? In the future, will you treat others this way? How does this make you feel? I really want to know, does it anger you? make you melancholy?

I don't think unplanned=unwanted! I believe every baby is a gift from God and there is a reason for him/her creation. Enjoy your pregnancy and all the best to you.
