Me and My story, pregnant at age 13

At age 13 I became pregnant by my 17 yr old bf. Before then, he lived with my family for about 6 months. He talked about marraige all the time and wanting to be with me forever. I know that I hurt him, but at age 13 I wasn't really thinkin about marraige! About a week after we broke up, I found out I was pregnant though. I was very tore up. My aunt told my parents and suprisingly, they wasn't mad. Eventually me and my bf got back together during my pregnancy and I felt like my life was perfect. I continued feeling great until about my 8th month. While 8 months pregnant, I had a girl come up to me in school and tell me that her and my bf/bd were in love. I was hurt, and it got worse. The girl told alot of people that she was gonna try to hit me in my stomache and make me miscarry. Of course when I asked my bf/bd he denied it, and like a dumbass I believed him. So then everything went back to normal, until after my son was born. When Ryan was 2 months old, I caught his daddy cheating on me. I was so heart broking that I didn't know what to do. So I got depressed. Then I just felt like my life was falling apart. So I started cutting myself to take my mind off the drama. I kept cutting my arms and hiding it for a few months. Then it got to the point where the only thing keeping me from commiting suicide was the thought of my son growing up without a mom. I knew I needed help then, so I told my mom. I went to rehab for a lil' over a week. I got out and I felt alot better about everything. I've been happy since then. Now I have a new problem though! My daddy got put in prison, and is still there now. He has been there for 3 months now and we don't know when he will get out. All this makes me think, things do get better, but then they sometimes suddenly take a turn for the worst.----I'm now 15 and I have an 11 month old son named *Ryan Anthony*

Thanks for sharing your story. I'm glad that rehab helped you feel better about life, but I'm sorry to hear about your dad. :( I hope that once he gets out, things will keep getting better for you.

Thanks for sharing your story :)

You have been through a lot... and I think you are an amazingly strong woman. I can't imagine being pregnant at the age of 13, and having my bf cheat on me at a time when I would need the most support...

I've been through having my father in prison, and you know, it was one of the best things that has happened for our relationship... as he came out a very different man who really appreciated family and the simple things in life. He had lots of time to think about everything... and although it's not the ideal place to be, the way I see it, it was a positive thing in the end :) It is hard though I know... when your father can't be there for important events in your life, and watch your son grow...

But everything happens for a reason, even if it's not so clear in the beginning.

Keep being a wonderful strong mama!! :)
