teen moms- did you plan to get pregnant?

I'm just wondering how many of us got pregnant on purpose or didn't care if we did or didn't so didn't use protection. I got pregnant the first time at 15, it was on purpose. Everyone else was getting pregnant and I thought that was the normal way to progress a relationship. The second time I was 17 and was just casually taking BC and missing days. My friend purposely got pregnant at 17. By senior year over half of the minority girls at my school were pregnant or had kids. I'm mexican American my self and most of my friends had kids before 20. This can't just be lack of education, I know in my case it wasn't. What about you?

i did not plan on getting pregnant either times AT ALL. i was 13 with DD1 and 17 with DD2. it deff wasn't lack of education, i had sex for the first time bc i was scared to lose my boyfriend. Which now sounds stupid.

No!! I didn't want to have a baby, I was 13 when I had my son, 12 when I got pregnant, I didn't even really know what sex or pregnancy was. I got pregnant at 16 because I was stupid and didn't use protection, I had an abortion. I'm white. I think it's lack of education along with lack of parents teaching kids to have goals, to want more than to be a teen mom.

I actually struggled with anovulation for over a year before I got pregnant at 15 and a half. My second child, to whom I gave birth to at 18, was planned. Both have the same father and we are happily married.

NOT AT ALL! I'd only been dating DH for a month before I got pregnant.

No I didnt. I was 16 when I got pregnant with my soon to be hubby. I never thought I could get pregnant because I had had unprotected sex with my partners since 14 and nothing ever happened.

Not planned. I think it's ridiculous to hear girls say they did it on purpose at a young age... I just don't understand!!!
