Hello, I am a mother of 2 girls, 7 and 3 years old. I became pregnant with my oldest when I was 16 years old. I quickly found out what it was like to be a single mom, in high school while working full time. Let me tell you, it was not easy but it was the best thing I could have done for my daughter. I had a good support system within my family and for that I am blessed. My mom basically had my daughter all the time because of me going to school and working. I still feel guilty about that but I know it's what had to be done. 

Currently, I am 24 years old, married and I have another child but the stigma of being a teen mom never leaves. There were many courtroom battles with the father of my oldest over support, visitation and of course the ugliness when I became pregnant again and he also had another child. 

I am here to tell you ladies hard work pays off. I am a high school graduate, a college student, wife and a mother. We have a happy life because I knew the prize that was waiting at the end. I still have many struggles within my motherhood journey but it does get easier.

Welcome Elly!  I know how scared yo uare, but it's best to get the telling of your parents over with before they start to suspect or ask you about it.  Plus, you'll feel better getting it out in the open and not trying to hide it.

(((hug)))

Hey. Im Elly, Im unforunatly 16 years old. I had sex for the first time in December and am now 8 weeks pregnant. My parents are extremely strict and I cant even imagine telling them. I dont know how they will react and to be honest im as scared as ever. I so ashamed to have to tell them this. I dont know if I should wait till its so obvious they ask me or I should just tell them. Its eating away at me and all the  guilt is killing me. I cant believe I was so stupid and immature for this to happen. My life is about to change forever and I wish I could say I was ready for it to.

Welcome Savannah!  Your doctor can help explain what is good to do/not do, but in the meantime just take good care of yourself, eat healthy, be active.

Welcome Heather (no you're not too old for this group).  

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad, I can't imagine how hard that must have been and then to lose your mom so soon after.  I'm so sorry.  (((hug)))

Quoting heathercd:

Hi everyone ! I'm Heather ! I'm 21 years old (to old ?). I have two children, a boy and a girl. My sons name is Braxton and he's two. My daughter is Natalie, but I call her Blaire (that's her middle name). She's about to be 8 months. Both of my children were planned. I got pregnant my second semester of senior year. I lost my father 3 days after my 19th birthday. Less than two months after losing him, I gave birth to my son. Right before my son turned one, we found out that my mother had cancer. I lost her in March of 2012. A few months after her passing, I gave birth to my daughter. I'm not married or engaged. My boyfriend and I have been together since October 4th, 2009. He is the father of my children. Our son looks just like him ! We started going out in 9th grade, but I broke up with him a month after our one year. We got back to together senior year and we've been inseperable since ! We might get married one day. He wants a Star Wars wedding. I told him that half the wedding can be Star Wars themed, but one half is gonna be normal.
