Hi my name is Brittany. I’m 16 and ….possibly pregnant. I like many young women my age thought I could handle the responsbilities and consequences of sex. See, my period was 4 days late and when it started (which was today) It was very light. My boyfriend and I have been together a little over a year and even though he says he will be there for me if I am pregnant I know I can’t have this baby. I’m just a baby myself. I have goals and dreams not to mention my mother will be devastated and I will pratically be disowned by her and the rest of my family. I guess when we engaged in sex I was looking for love the wrong way. Now I’m in this situation and don’t knowhow to get out. I pray that I’m not pregnant and I hope that you all will give me strength and hope by postin your replies. Thanks alot ~*Brittany*~January 30, 2006 at 10:40 am #10359beautiful_soul86
This must be a very stressful time for you. I know there must be alot going on in your mind right now, and this is normal. It is normal to think all these things.
You are young – but that doesnt mean that young women make bad mothers, or do a horrible job. I know many young mums – some of whom had their first at 14 years old and there children are fine, they have been such wondrful mothers and provided their children with everything they have ever needed and given love.
Have you taken a test yet? This would be the first thing you need to do. You need to make sure that you are pregnant. Being late with your period doesnt always mean your pregnant – could be traced back to quite alot of things. But yea a test would be the best thing to take so you can move on with your decissions and think about your choices etc.
No-one should influence your decision with the baby. It is YOUR baby and you need to make the decision without others telling you what to do… that only ends in heartbreak and bitterness. You are your boyfriend need to discuss what you will do when baby is here, what services are avaible, whether or not your parents would be supportive, etc.
Its good to write things down so you can see the bigger picture. There are other options. Hundreds of thousands of couples all around the world are deperate to adopt a child, they have been often waiting for up to 10 years and are desperate to be parents. You can even meet them and suss them out – you dont have to go down that track, even after meeting them… you can always change your mind.
Please let me know how the pregnancy test goes…
Lots of love,
