Hi everyone, I was 19 when I found out I was pregnant and had only been with my boyfriend for a year. I knew I wanted to keep the baby but that didn’t stop me from crying for about a week. I was alone when I did the test as i was sure it would be wrong but 4 tests later and it was still positive.
I broke the news to my boyfriend over the phone and he came straight to my house and gave me a big hug and told me everything will be ok and that we’d get through it.
When I went for my date scan I found out I was 6 weeks already which was a bit shocking as I thought I was only around 2 weeks. We didn’t tell anyone about the baby untill I was 3 months pregnant. Everyone was fine about it but I was still scared about what having a baby will be like.
Although, I was scared I couldn’t wait to find out whether it was a boy or a girl.. when i went for my scan they told us it was a boy. From then onwards I was so excited to know what he would look like that it went by so fast.
When I had 4 weeks left me and my boyfriend got ourselves a flat and started buying baby things, my boyfriend did loads of overtime and saved his money to buy everything. I knew from that point, that he was serious about me and the baby.
My due date came and went and a week later and nearly 2 days of labour, baby Jamie came to the world weighing 7lbs and 15ozs. He’s now 9 months old and so cheeky! Everyone says he’s very clever for his age and I totally agree.
My baby and his dad (we’ve been together for nearly 3 years now) are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I may only be 21 but every day that passes makes me realise how happy I am to have my own little family and no one can ever take that away from me.
