I am a teenage mother but as some of the older mama's have said "all the teens have an excuse", I don't, and I'll never pretend that I did. I had unprotected sex probably 3-4 times a day for over a year before I finally ended up pregnant(I will say that I'm not a complete whore lol, always with the same guy, I just enjoy sex), but I've never been so happy to be one of the biggest idiots on the planet =). I wouldn't change it for anything.
I'm not necessarily proud to be a teen mom, but not once did I ever feel ashamed of it, honestly I've never felt so much pride in my life. I created and grew the most beautiful thing this world's ever seen. I was pregnant for almost 42 weeks, at least as long as most of you, and I birthed
a child just like most of you, and even as a teen mom, I've raised a very healthy, chubby, crazy smart baby girl, so I hope that none of you will think I'm any less of a mother because I'm 17.
Labor story(short version)
Went into labor at 7am on September 16(10 days overdue)
Arrived at the hospital at 5pm(I was in denial) at 7cm dilated
Got my epi at 9 cm dilated 45 minutes before it was time to push
Pushed for an hour
Slept for an hour(Got a second dose of the epi and couldn't stay awake anymore)
Pushed for another hour
They sucked Skyler out with a vacuum at 2:17am on September 17(11 days overdue)
I Exclusively pumped for the first 6 weeks of Skyler's life, I quit when I got thrush but honestly, I wouldn't have been able to handle it for much longer regardless, props to all the mama's that can.
I am currently a stay at home mom working to get my high school diploma online, I do miss having friends and talking to people my own age, but I'd much rather be there for my sweet little baby every second I can manage, no one do it like mommy can =)
I think abortion is murder at 22 days gestation when the heart has a beat. Although I don't agree with abortion, I wont think less of anyone for having a different opinion than mine.(Unless you're all for late term abortions, then i might think less of you)
I always imagined myself adopting. Because i thought for me, pregnancy & delivery would be the worst possible thing in the world. Well.. I was right, but I'd do it 100 times over for Skyler =) ♥
