I was pregnant four times (at 16, 17, 19, and 20). I had two miscarriages (at 16 and 19). Those two miscarriages really damaged me, and I feel as though I subconsciously got pregnant again, to fill the voids left by their deaths. I do not regret my decision to not abort.

 I kept mine. I was 17 almost 18. Ill admit it was hard and I needed a little help. I do wish sometimes it had happened later in life, but it happened and I handled it the best I knew how.

 I got pregnant at 18 and had dd at 19. I kept her and got married when she was 2 weeks old divorced when she was 8 months old.

 I got pregnant right after I turned 15. I had lied to the guy I was dating (he was 19). I felt if I didn't abort then he would have gone to jail. I am not proud of it...but it is what it is.

Found out I was pregnant the day before my 19th birthday. She was planned. We got married when she was 4 months old. We've been married for over 6 years and have 2 more kids. =)

I got pregnant when I was 18 and kept him. However, when I was 19, I was raped and beaten by 3 men and ended up pregnant. There was no question, I aborted. And no, I never did, and still don't, regret the decision I made.

I was pregnant 3 times before I turned 20. My first time was at 16, She passed away.

My second time was at 17, My DD is now 5.

My third time was at 18 but it was a miscarriage. 

My youngest DD was when I was 22.

I'm sorry. I know how painful a miscarriage is, although I can't fathom the idea of losing a living, breathing, child. =(
