i have started this post to give pregnant teens an insight into what they have to come to them and to try and stop ppl from rushing into having babies at a young age. I will tell you a bit bowt myself b4 i start.....i am 18 years old and have 2 children..... my mom kicked me out at 15 when i told her i was preganant with my first i lived in hostels until my baby girl was born kiera lee-arna. i then moved into a council flat where childrens agency banardos gave me 1,000 to decorate. it may seem like a lot of money but when u have to buy carpets, setees, cookers etc it doesnt last long. so my house was full of old second hand stuff. i had to sleep on the setee as i cudnt afford a bed, i had to live off benefits £120 a week which goes no where when u have to buy nappies, food etc , my clothes are all second hand i never get the chance to buy anything new or go anywhere. 1 yr later i fell pregnant again...both times the fathers ran a mile as soon as they found out. so now that fun carefree thin pretty girl is gone, and whats left is a mother of 2, constantly worrying if she can pay bills and feed her children. my diary starts here::::

day 1 22/01/06...got up with kiera at 6am shes got an upset stomach and has been up all night being sick, got pj dressed and head for hospital with kiera at 9am. had to get the bus as no money so struggled getting kids, double buggy and changing bag off the bus no one even bothered to help. in hospital till 2pm then allowed home another dreaded bus journey. got home and put kiera to bed while pj plays with his toys, i clean up the house (which is v messy) and make tea. then try to do college work (i am training to be an administrator) while pj sleeps, kiera has been sick all over settee and quilts, etc, so didnt get much done. 7.30pm- bathed children and put there pjamas on. pj refusing to settle down playin loudly with toys, kiera still sleeping. trying to get all things ready for tomorrow as im at college and my mom is looking after children. dunno if going or not dependin on kiera. 11pm totally exhausted goin to bed..... up every hour all night with kiera.

I think what you are doing is GREAT but many teens will say that wouldn't happen to me,my boyfriend want a baby or I just found out I'm pregnant and my boyfriend is happy.I don't want to disourage you from keeping it up.If it reaches one girl it is worth every minute you spend on it.

i know that most wont listen coz if someone had said this to me at 14 i would have said "shut up if it happens he l stick by me" thats a joke i fell for twice but like u said if one listens its worth it

I have one question out of curiosity, how can you aford the internet most less a computer. I think its wounderful what your doing but if the truths not told not many people listen

this is a very good thread for the teens trying to get pregnant. i didnt "try" myself, but i found myself pregnant when i was 15, now 16. that first diary kinda scared me, but it wont be as hard on me since my parents and my boyfriends parents are willing to help and are happy for us. Kylie... not to be rude or anything but where is the father?

day 2 23/01/06 - January 24

(to mrs sarge i use net at college) today kiera was a little bit better, pj was up bouncin around at 6.30 so another sleepless nite followed by an early start. got all of us ready (pj twice as he threw porrige all down himself). at 8am had to walk with kids to my moms (argue with her as she says its too much work for her to look after to of them all day) then head off for colllege (there is a creche here which is free for college students so i enrolled both of them they start on monday) finally get to my cla__s 15mins late. I have to work doubly fast to catch up coz never finished my work yesterday with kiera being ill. all my college friends planning a night out for friday. not a chance i can go no money, babysitter or anything to wear. so try to pretend am not interested. i would love to go and get sum new clothes and get my hair done and go out with no worries i'd probs have to starve for a month if i went with them. left college at 1pm and head for shops to get food and nappies then go and pick kids up. kiera and pj are painting, mom doesnt believe me now when i told her i had been up all night with her and how ill she was coz shes been fine all day. get kids ready and go to park to feed the ducks. both of them fell asleep in buggy so i have a little sleep on the couch. both are grouchy when they get up so fed them and put them both in bath. 7.30pm put them both to bed and start on my mountain of ironing by 9 cant keep my eyes open going to bed....quiet night kiera slept through. pj woke at 3am and got in my bed.

I dont think she's putting a bad light on motherhood its hard for a single teenage mom who has nobody to raise to wounderful children and go to collage. Im sure if she didnt love them or enjoy watching them grow she wount have keep them. I think your a wounderful mother for taking care of your children and not saying i give up because its to hard. Im lucky. I had a verry hard live but i have wounderful grandparents who took me in and helped raise me. Im 19 as of the 20th of this month and ive found a wounderful man who is 25 that loves me and works hard, we are now married and im now 34 weeks pregnant . Not every girl gets lucky normally the man is sorry and leaves. Your brave and do something not many womn can do on their own at a young age
