Teen Pregnancy

Could it be, It shouldn't be something so fragile and delicate moving inside. This skinny little body not yet ready to be stretched and expanded. This girl not yet ready to have one of god's miracles of life. I can barley take care of myself, how would it be with a child on the way. A man who who plead his innocense to the very end. He's on the football team and I just hang my head in the hateful school walls dreading the results. If it says yes I'll be giving up all my hopes and dreams, and maybe ruining his life. If it says no I don't know if I can stop thinking about what could have been. Just another teen pregnancy, another statistic, another failing mother just trying to get by. Although I had always heard about it, I never thought about it, or even contemplated that it might happen to me. I take another deep breath, sighing heavily and I head to class. No matter what, I will do what's right, and that's to live without regrets.

I think that teen pregnancy is okay. If you want to RUIN YOUR LIFE just to get a little fun, it's not worth it. I almost got my girl prego, and it scared us to death. It would of ruined my soccer career and her life.

Having a child is the most wonderful experience of life and no, it does not ruin anything and yes, I'm talking about becoming a mother at teenage.

I'm sure it won't be as bad as you think. Just think you'll get to bring a human into the world. Your baby is going to grow up and be a beautiful person just like you! Don't think your life is over because its not! We all make mistakes. Small or big they are just the same. Your lifes not over it has just begun! Also remeber this is not you fault its his too. Find someone to help you through this if he won't! ~ To all the teen moms out there.

Hope things turn out OK! Your essay makes it easy to sympathize with you... I'm sure all teen moms feel the same way. Again, hope that whatever happens, you're OK!

Right now I could say that I'm sorry for you. But you just wrote an amazing article with love, feeling and passion. I've never been in that situation before, but all I can say is this. Everything happens for a reason, and if you do become a teen mother, then god thought you were strong enough to handle it. You'll be a great mom and find a way to work it out. Stay positive with your chin up and nothing will hold you back from chasing your dreams, you just may need to find another way.

u wud only be another statitstic if u let yourself be. honestly accidents happen. if u are pregnant that baby is a blessing from god. always remember that babys a life, not a mistake. getting pregnant at a young age may be an accident bt no human life is. my sister was 15 and she had a baby and she just turned 16. My nephew is 3 months and hes incredible. hes changed her life for the better. it will be hard if u are pregnant bt thats y u hav to be strong for ur baby and urself. i may not k... (more »)

wow I'm really starting to like this place! Haha to everyone on here not being cruel about this issue, I'm very impressed! I agree of course. I'm just glad that people don't try to give you crap for this. I understand that this is your feelings and that it's a big kick in the head and that it's hard. My boyfriend and I have had many of these scares but don't worry. It will be okay. You can make it through. It will be a lot harder but it's completely poss... (more »)
