Sweetheart, i am 17. I have a two year old little boy named Dahvie Alexanderr and my life is hell. Paychech to paycheck, can i make rent this month, when is her dad getting back from job training in dallas? Its hard as hell being a mom. Your best bet is to give that baby to the state child protective services or foster care and let somebody who wants the baby and cant get pregnant for themselves adopt it.

Can't believe what I read on here. Am I dreaming? An 11 year old who can barely spell-read post-is bragging about being pregnant and having a baby??? Sweetie: Who is raising your baby? This is unreal. Anyway, I hope you actually read this book and it helped. 11 year olds were not biologically designed nor do they have the hormonal maturity to give birth without major risks and complications, even moreso than those girls a few years older. I pray that this poor soul could read and digest the info and the outcome was okay, though I seriously doubt it. Please young girls, think before you have sex. I would bet this young lady just started her monthly or was on the cusp and didn't think she could get pregnant. The thing is at such a tender age there is no way to know so until you establish a regular pattern, at which time you know for sure, you'd be well advised to assume you can get pregnant just the same as girls who have steady monthly cycles. Enough said.

Im 16 and i might be having a baby with an 18 years old boy but we love either so i hop this work's out for me and him but im happy at this point that im going to have a baby girl or a baby boy wish me good luck . I havn't told my mom yet that i might have a baby but if she finds out by a friend that im going to have a baby she will yell at me. Its bad alright that she is not talking to me and if she founds out that im pergnent its not going to make it any better with me and her right now.
