When i found out i was pregnant when i was nineteen. At the older end of the teenage pregnancy scale but still a teenager none the less!
Me and my boyfriend had been together for 4yrs when i found out i was pregnant. But even though we had been together for so long i was still petrified to tell him!
I had been on the pill for years and i always took it every day religously bacause i didnt want to have a baby until we were a bit older not because i was a teenager but because i wanted to be financialy secure and able to provide my baby will all it wanted or needed.
When i first noticed that my period was late i didnt fink anything of it at first as i knew i had been taking my pill every day so i just assumed that it had to be somthing else that was causing my period to be late. So i waited a week and when my period still hadnt came i went to the doctors and they done a pregnancy test and it was negative so the doctor told me to wait another week or so and if my period still hadnt come i was to go back in and see him. All the while i was in the doctors i felt like he was judging me because i was young! Which was making me feel like i was too young and i was starting to panic as theres no way i would have an abortion! So a couple of days later i just new that somthin wasnt right! I just felt different i cant explain how i just did! So i went and bought my own pregnancy test and done it at home.
I WAS PREGNANT! At that moment when i looked at the test and seen that i was pregnant i instantly started crying! Wot was i going to say to my mum, how was i going to tell my boyfriend, and most of all where would we live and how would we afford it! I was unemployed at the time! Also i was going through a really rough patch of my life at that time and to be honest with you at the tinme getting pregnant was about the worst thing that could have happened to me! But now looking back if i hadnt been pregnant i dont know if i would have got through that time of my life!
Anyway when my boyfriend came and picked me up that night we went for a drive in the car down the beach and when we parked i started shaking and sweating crapping it as i didnt know wot he was going to say. When i turned to him and said " ive got somthing to tell you!" He immediately knew wot i was going to say to him! When i told him he asked me if i was sure and i said yes and with that he started the car and started to drive home the whole way back to his house he didnt speak to me at all! But he soon came round to the idea and by the time i was 10wks pregnant and we went for the first scan he was as excited as i was! But i still felt like people in the street were looking at me funny and the doctor was too. And for a while i was thinking the same as them, maybe i was too young to have a baby!
But by the time i was nearly 6mnths pregnant i had changed my mind. I was really excited and i knew that i was going to be a great mum!
When i had her and i was in hospital everyone around me was a lot older and i was worried that they thought i was just a silly wee girl that had gone and got herself pregnant n they wouldnt speak to me. But it was the complete opposite! They were all really nice and it didnt seem to bother them that i was so young! But i think times have changed now and people are having kids younger so they still have a chance to have a life once their kids have grown up so ithink it is becoming a lot more accepted now!
I want people to realise that your life doesnt end when you have children young. You just have someone else to consider when you are planning what to do which is the same for older mothers as well!
In conclusion i think it shouldnt matter what age you are when you have children because who has the right to tell you that just because you are younger than your average mother that you are going to be terrible at it!
Dont listen what anyone else says as long as you are happy thats all that matters!
Thanx for reading.Hope its of use to young mothers-to-be out there! xx
