My name is Lyndsey and I’m 15 years old. I met my boyfriend Braxton (16 years old) at a party a few years ago. We’ve been together ever since. I became sexually active about a month ago. We used protection and made sure we were as careful as possible.
I’m pregnant… I told my parents and they talked to me about abortion and adoption, they have been really supportive, and so have Braxton’s parents and I am super happy. But not so happy that I am pregnant:( One night, Braxton had realized that the condom broke after we were done.
I was scared and I kept a very close eye. My next period didn’t come. I had irregular periods so I wasn’t concerned at that point, then the next one didn’t come. I was scared, so I told my mom, and she understood. She had me at a very young age, and I told her my concern and she took me to the drug store, and we bought 10 pregnancy tests. All of them came out positive.
I cried for day’s The day before my first appointment, I invited Braxton over to tell him. By then my dad already knew and he was very supportive. He came over and I sat him on the couch and I told him. He thought it was a prank at first. I started to cry and he knew it wasn’t a joke. He started to tear up and we just sat there and cried. I asked him about his thoughts on abortion. He didn’t like the idea at all. I didn’t like it either. He wanted to keep the baby.
The next day, we told his parents. His parents were shocked, but they were very supportive. All 6 of us went to my first appointment. I am beginning to feel nauseous and I just needed to find a support group to help me cope.
I have a small bump, and that god Braxton is sticking by my side. We decided we are going to keep the baby, and me being pregnant is hard. I go to an online school. Braxton works a lot. Braxton’s friends are also really supportive and my friends are also.
For the pregnancy, everything is going well. Like I said, I have a little nausea, and I am still in shock. 8 months more to go!!
