I am only 16 years old and pregnant. It would of never happened if I stayed home and didn’t go to the party, but it did and now I have to face the consequences.
Lets start at the beginning. I was hanging out with one of my guy friends and he asked if I’d like to go to a party with him. The party was in Mountain Home and it was at one of his friends house. I said sure I’d go with him. I knew I should have stayed home, but I didn’t want to look like a nerd to my friend so I went. Mind you I was steal a virgin at the time.
We got there and he went to get us a couple of drinks. I asked if it was none alcoholic and he said yes it was. Turns out it wasn’t. So I got drunk, but not on purpose. His friend’s cousin that was visiting from out of state started to talk to me. Then it progressed into flirting. Then all of a sudden we were making out. Next thing I know he took my hand and led me to the bedroom he was staying in. I knew what was going to happen next. My head was telling me no, but my body was telling me to go for it. So we had sex.
Next day I thought nothing of it. Then a few days later I noticed my period was late. Six weeks later I take a pregnancy test and low and behold I turn out to be pregnant. I thought to myself how could this happen when we only did it one times.
I didn’t know the name of the father. So I asked my friend , who asked his friend. The fathers name was Sam. I don’t know his last name. My friend explained the situation to his friend. The he in turn told his cousin. So his cousin called me to confirm if the story of me being pregnant was true. I told him it was.
The next thing I knew he was saying he didn’t want anything to do with me or the baby. I told his cousin this and all his cousin and to say was that it was best for me to get an abortion and to never tell any one about it.
So I’m pregnant and still in high school. I’m scared because I don’t want to raise this baby on my own without the father. I know I have my friends and family behind me, but its still not the same as having the baby’s father there for me and the child.
I don’t know what to do. I’m thinking abortion is my only option to my situation. I don’t know if I’m ready. If there is any one out there that can give me advice or at least a helpful suggestion or another solution instead of abortion I would really be grateful. Please help me.
