Hello everyone... I am finally glad to join!
I am 18 years old [[19 in JUly]] and I am pregnant with my first child! To be honest, I am not that sad or upset about being pregnant at such a young age because I was recently told that I could never have children because I have a low amount of eggs in my body and have severly small cervix which the doctors thought would enable me from having children. Even though I didn't really want children at the time, I was very upset to know that I could never have children!
In December, right after christmas, I passed out in my shower and I went to the doctor [[thinking that I had the flu]] and found out that I was actually 6 weeks pregnant! My heart dropped and tears fell from my eyes! I was so happy but at the same time scared to death because I AM ONLY 18!!!
I didn't know how to break the ice to my parents... but with time I eventually did and now they are very supportive of me and their granddaughter-to-be!
I am in a very good relationship with my boyfriend [[of 3 years]] and he is very supportive of having a baby. He is a few years older than me so he is much more ready than I am. I am trying to stay in college and keep my grades up while being pregnant and worrying about being a mom!
This pregnancy has been very hard on my body! Because of my small cervix, I feel EVERYTHING!!! I cramp all the time.. I get sick all the time! It is just miserable! I can't wait until August when I actually give birth!
But.. that is pretty much all about me... thank you for welcoming me to girl-mom.. I aM happy to belong!!
