I got pregnant at 17

My boyfriend and I are both 17 and only used the pill as our birth control.

I got too confident one month and decided I didnt want to take my pills.
I didnt think I could get pregnant, and I was just being stupid.

When I was meant to finish my pills, my period never came and I found out I was pregnant.

Ive sworn to my boyfriend and our families that I took my pills from day one, because I didnt want them to be more angry at me and the situation. I dont know what my boyfriend would do if he found out the truth.

Thats my confession and I have to deal with it for the rest of my life..

I'm not judging you - but this exact reason is why my girls are on the shot. I SEE them get their birth control and know that they're as safe as I can make them be.

Yeah I wish now I took it more seriously and got myself on a birth control I didnt have to remember to take everyday

I wasn't on birth control. We were using withdrawal to prevent pregnancy. I got pregnant at 17 too. I'm 26 now with three kids, hubby and I just bought our first house. Life is good. You sound a bit freaked. I finished out high school 7 months pregnant, so it can be done. You can still go to college and get a great job. You just have to want it.

I have huge guilt, followed by the natural feelings most girls feel when they find out they got pregnant so young..

Good for you though! I'm in college right now working to finish earlier. I really want it too.

We all made mistakes as teeneagers :)  Don't feel guilty!! Good mothers come in all ages.  I know some teen moms that are better than moms that wait unti they are "ready."  I don't think babies are accidents, per say.  Maybe to us, but not to God.  And I got pregnant at 18, because I was a moron and didn't use anything.  LOL.  He is 15 today and I wouldn't change anything!

Thank you :) I do agree with you its just a lot to take on I think. Especially knowing I've lied to my boyfriend about taking my pills. And I've dragged him down with me because I made a stupid decision.
