My name is Isabel and I got pregnant at 14 and gave birth to my daughter at 15. One night my boyfriend and I with decided to have sex. After that night my life changed. About 3-4 weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I talked to a trusted aunt and she took me to go get checked. I peed in a cup and yup those 2 lines came up. I looked at my Aunt and I didn’t really know what say. She told me it was going to be okay.
At that time I wasn't with my boyfriend, but I told him we needed to talk. So I went to his house and I told him. He hugged me and started crying he told me he was sorry for everything but that he was going to help me. After we went to go tell my parents they told me they kinda already knew it. They told me I had their support.
I was happy to know that I was growing a tiny human in me. I couldn't wait to find out what I was having. I wanted a girl and I got a girl! My pregnancy was kinda smooth. I really didn't get morning sickness. But the 9 months went by so slow! I was anxious to see my little girl, but I was scared and nervous about labour. On my last visit to the doctors, the doctor told me "Isabel do you want to have this baby tomorrow?" I was excited when he told me I thought I could finally see my daughter!
So when I got home I got everything ready the baby’s clothes, my clothes and everything. I went to the hospital at 12 midnight. Then the nurses started putting the IV's and everything on. Then I waited and waited and at around 6:30 they broke my water and it felt so weird! The water was just was like pouring out sorta.
Then that’s when I really felt the contractions and I couldn't take them once I started feeling them I asked for the epidural! Then 15 mins later I got it. After about 3 hours I started feeling pressure like the baby was about to come out! So my mom called the nurses and she checked to see how many centimetres I was dilated and she said "oh wow her head is right there don't push yet because I don't want to deliver that baby on my own" she went to go call the doctor and she said I had to wait 15 minutes till the doctor got there so as we waited they got everything ready. I started feeling more pressure finally the doctor got there and he told me her head was already coming out.
My boyfriend was there but when he saw his face was like I’ve never seen it before. It was time to push! Just with 2 pushes she was out! Adelina was a 6 lbs 4 oz little girl born at 9:34 am. My boyfriend cut the umbilical cord and they just took off the blood from her and gave her to me they left her there with me for about an hour and after they took her to check her to make sure she was healthy my boyfriend went with her.
About 4-5 hours they brought her back to me! I was so excited I cried because it was a person that my boyfriend and I created. When we were able to leave home I was happy! I put the cutest outfit on her. The first day with her at home was amazing she really didn’t cry she was asleep most of the time She looks so beautiful asleep. Now my baby girl is 2 months old and yes it is kinda tiring at times but I wouldn't take none of it back. She is my motivation to move forward in life. I am happy I had her! Honestly I don’t really think it’s hard. I’m not saying to go and have a baby because it is better to wait until you have your own house and everything. My boyfriend does work so he does buy everything she needs and I do plan on getting a job when I turn 16 because I don't want her to be without anything she needs. I’m a proud teen mom.

Okay, I have to admit this makes me feel better. I'm 20 and kinda small.. as in really small. I look like a 14 year old and so I was scared of how to go on with the pregnancy but you have encouraged me. Congratulations.

Hi, I'm 16 about to be 17 in a week and I'm 11 weeks pregnan, I haven't told my family yet, only my boyfriend and trusted teachers at school
Your story is so cool! Im now 18 and i have a gorgeous 1 year old boy! I have been with his dad for 3 and a half years now. When i found out i was pregnant my family pretended to be supportive but i knew they didnt want me to have the baby. My partners family were also the same. But im so glad i kept my son. He has brought so much joy to mine and his fathers life. We wouldnt change a thing! For all you young girls commenting saying your pregnant and dont know what to do, just talk about it to someone! My dad didnt talk to my sister her entire pregnancy so i was scared to tell him but he was the most supportive person out of my entire family. Be happy enjoy your pregnancy!
Congrats!!! You sound like a very mature 15 year old and your boyfriend seems mature as well. You guys will make wonderful parents. I hope you enjoy when she is a newborn I heard they grow up fast. I am currently pregnant I'm a teen as well so I know what your going through. !
Your story was absolutely great. Is there any way i can get in contact with you to ask some questions for my parenting class?
Hey, I'm writing a story over teen pregnancy and was wondering If I could use your story as an example for 1 of the 3 stories I need. If you could just give me permission to use your story and to use for photo for my story that would be great :)
