Finding out I was pregnant & the outcome

It was December 18, 2013, 7:30pm. I had been sick for two weeks straight, throwing up every morning, every evening, and every night. My mom kept asking me, “Are you okay?” I didn’t know what was going on with me. Then my mom started asking me, “You pregnant and do you need a pregnancy test?” Every time she would ask, I would say “NO!" That December night she told me to get up and get dressed. I got up and did what she said because at that point I felt like I could be pregnant. We went to Children’s Hospital. After two hours the doctor came in and said I was pregnant. My heart DROPPED! I was speechless and my mom said “I knew it” and started crying. She cooled down and told the doctor “it’s a Christmas miracle." After that we left, and it wasn’t a pleasant ride home. My mom was very disappointed. I didn’t know what to say. We went straight to my baby’s father‘s house, and my mom gave him and his mom the information while I stayed in the car.

As the months of my pregnancy went on, things started to get better. My pregnancy was very stressful; some days were good, but most days were not. I went to all my appointments. I didn’t miss a day, and it was only my baby’s father and me who went. My mom went to my very first one. It was on February 3, 2014. I was 13 weeks pregnant.

While I was pregnant, I was trying to get a job and get into mall school, but nothing was turning out how I hoped. My mom was saying how I didn’t need a job. I need to focus on school, so I just gave up on trying getting a job.

Now that I’ve had my baby girl, everything is so much better. August 8, 2014 was the day Aubria was born. She was 7 lbs., 1oz., and now she is growing and a very happy, healthy baby. I’m there for her 24/7, except for when I’m at school or work. I advise teen couples to use protection because a baby is a lot of work and a huge responsibility.

Having Aubria made me open my eyes to life. It also made grow up a lot. I’m more mature, aware, and serious about fulfilling my goals in life. I’m on the right track, and I’m staying on it for my daughter. If you are not ready for a baby, then slow down because moving too fast you won’t realize what you’re doing.
