Pregnant at 15By anonymous on 15/11/2011
I was 15 when I got pregnant the 1st time.
It was one of the hardest yet most rewarding times of my life.
At 3 months pregnant I had very bad morning sickness and ended up in hospital. I went in 13th December and came out 1st January, then it was all fine until 3 weeks before my due date. I was taken to hospital for swelling, itching of the skin and not being able to stand up. I had become low in iron and my heart was weak, so I had to stay in hospital. When I came out a week later they told me I should not get excited or run around, or even walk too far. I heard all of this the day before my 16th birthday & 3 days before my prom, I was very upset which of course made my condition worse, it was like a vicious circle most of the time! I eventually gave birth 2 days overdue. It took 20 mins and I had no painkillers of any type not even gas and air, and the result was a baby boy weighing 7lb 8.5oz. I'm now 18 and 3 weeks pregnant (same father) I don't know how I'm going to do all of that again without my mum around, but I am a strong, fighting woman at least this time I have a heads up ;)
