16 and 3 months pregnant.

By anonymous on 21/05/2012
16 and 3 months pregnant. At this point of my pregnancy everthing is going well for me, but it was a hard road to get to this point.
When I found out I was only about 5 weeks. It was such a shock to me, I told my boyfriend of 3 years and he was real supportive but he knew what he wanted, which was for me to have an abortion.

I hadn't really thought about what I wanted just yet, but I've always hated abortions.

It took me ages to tell my parents as I was scared to tell them. I regreted not telling them earlier because they were so good about it, but my dad was set on me having an abortion. This made me feel so alone on my decision of keeping my baby as no one was telling me I was doing that right thing.
All anyone would say is that "it's your choice" . which made it feel so real.
I came to the realisation that I want this baby. So now that hard part was to tell my dad and boyfriend.
Everyone else accepted my decision, bfs parents were so good about it and still are.
When I told my boyfriend I was keeping it he was upset I could tell. I knew he just needed time to take it in and now he's so great. He's got a job and is standing by me.
Now I'm getting a little bump and it's so special knowing there's a life in me.
I can't wait to have my little family, I've already got a lot of the baby stuff I need
If I can say anything to anyone, it is **use protection!!** seriously, and if you do get pregnant, go with what YOU feel is best because it will be the right thing.
