Hi Ladies!  my name is Danielle and I am 7 months pregnant. When I first told my ex boyfriend that I was pregnant I couldnt get a hold of him. Then when I finally got in touch with him he was excited. Well that was how he portrayed it. It was all fake in the end because he wanted a boy and when I let him know that he was having a girl he was very displeased. It broke my heart because she did not ask to be here. But any ways she will know that her mother (me) is going to be there for her through anything!

i WISH the father of my child was still around. when i told him the news he seemed happy but after a few days he left. till this day i dont know where he took off too and it kills me because we've been together since 7th grade until now (junior year in hs). it hurts because i grew up without a father and i would never want my child to go through what i went through. i just wish he was here like he promised he would be.

Quoting Cafe Kelly:

I didn't do anything fun, I just showed  my DH the positive test. I think I really needed another pair of eyes to confirm it was true!

"I'm fucking pregnant"

After my period was 4 days late, I told my boyfriend I was late. We were not living together yet, we were in the process of finding a place together, so I went to his apartment after he got done worj the next day. He had bought two pregnancy tests and he made me dinner :) I then took the test and made him look to see if it came out positive or negative. He was sooooo excited that it was positive!

I texted him a picture of the positive test.

I had been off birth control for 3 months by the time I got pregnant. We were out of town and my period ended up being late (didn't think anything of it because they were never on time). By the time the end of that week came around, DH was like "so, you're going to take a pregnancy test, right?" He was more anxious than me! LOL I ended up having to take two tests because the first was very faint. The second one, same thing. When I officially went to the doctor's, as the nurse was talking to me, it progressively got darker. So I felt better because the at home ones, though definitely positive, were not dark at all.
