15, still at school and pregnant

I was 15 when I fell pregnant with my baby.
My boyfriend was 17 and at the time we had been going out for a year.
I was 3 months pregnant when I found out because my periods were all over the place so it didn't occur to me that I was pregnant. Eventually I realised my period should have come and I consulted my boyfriend and we brought a pregnancy test which came up positive.
Me and my boyfriend were very excited apart from having to tell our parents but I knew I had to tell my mum because I began to show.
I told my mum and we discussed about my options and I decided to keep it.
At school me and my boyfriend had a hard time but we stuck through it and we had our beautiful baby girl and we wouldn't change her for the world. She is now a year old and me and my boyfriend are still going strong.
We have a place of our own and we take it in turns to work because I had to drop school but now I'm starting my tafe course.

Editor's Comment

It's often hard to break news like this to your parents, but I am glad that your mum was able to talk it through with you and help you to think through your options. It must be hard work looking after your baby and finishing your studying, but worth it when you are sure you have made the right decision.
