They like to call me Brittany. I am 20 years old. I have an amazing daughter named Kaylee Rose. She completely turned my life around. I got pregnant with Kaylee when i was 17 years old. Her father and i are no longer together and i think that is for the best. He still sees her but that is a huge battle between us. After finding out i was pregnant with Kaylee i completely stopped smoking and drinking and started to get my life together as soon as i could. I was able to graduate before i got pregnant.
I am currently pregnant with #2. Even though Kaylee and this baby will not have the same father, Kaylee considers Nick to be her father and i love the fact that she took so well to him. I am due May 23rd with another little girl
we wanted a boy but at this point as long as she is healthy i dont care. i was diagonsed with placenta previa at 18 weeks and i was scared shitless. after researching it i realized it wasnt as bad as i thought so i just have to take it easy. her name is going to be Aubree. Due to having a c-section with Kaylee i have to have one with this baby as well and the date is set right now for May 16th.. Any questions just ask. i love making new friends
