Anna 19 (I was 18 when I had my son) Texas. I have a boy (5-12-10) named Keith Allen Richard Strain. I found out I was pregnant 3 days before my BF's birthday. At first we were excited and a little scared. At the time we were both working and I was in college (I still am) and we dont really make a lot of money but we make just enough to cover the bills only. Throughout my pregnancy I had high blood pressure, so at 18 weeks I had to start going to the dr every two weeks, then at 26 weeks I went to L&D for  early labor, I had gotten a bladder infection that caused me to start contracting and having back labor, and that hurt like hell. (Maybe because I was terrifed my little guy would be coming way too early). After this little visit to the hospital i was put on moderate bedrest and was no longer allowed to get up and do the normal things i would do, like cook and clean ect. He told me he would be surprized if I made it to 36 weeks with out having the baby. Well we showed him lol at 39 weeks and 4 days I was induced. I had been having contractions every 20-30 minutes since my little visit to the hospital so I was done. At 5:30 am myself and my BF and his mom arrived at L&D they didnt actually start pitocin until 9:30 then they broke my water at 11:30 and I had a beautiful baby boy in my hands at 1:35 pm. He was 8lbs 9.5 oz and 21 in long.


Now onto the many many struggles. Let me start with my house is always in need of something being done. But as soon as you start to do something the baby needs something also. Laundry is NEVER finished, and the dishes are always backed up. Diapers and wipes are expensive, along with all the other mis. baby items you need. Your BF may not be the greatest help with the baby since they are learning how to be a dad.

:) hope this helps



Maybe if you put a list of questions more people would answer. Just a suggestion. Message me if you need any other information. Ill be happy to help. :)

Oh and I just read what I posted and it sounds kinda negative, so I figured I would state that I love my baby boy more than anything in the whole world. (and I planned on having him) I would not change having him here for the life of me! Even though things are hard tring to balance work, school and a baby it is do able and you will live through it.
