Hi my name is:
I was 16 and pregnant. Had my beautiful baby girl when I was 17. I have support from the most important person in my world... my mother. She was there for me when I was 16 and now that number 2 is coming... she's still by my side. Of course daddy was around, or there wouldn't be number 2. Last December we celebrated our 4 year anniversary. Shortly thereafter, I had a moment of truth. After all we have been through I grew up and he didnt so I chose to step away. But with all that said I HAVE to say this. Thank you for letting me make it as far as I have in life.
I'm hard headed and do everything my way. Learning that my way doesnt always work is a process that Im suffering through. Growing up is hard! I proudly have my own place where I pay my bills by myself. My life may not be the way I wanted but its definitely the way it should be. I wouldnt change it for anything.
On Tuesday February 7, 2012 I found out I was pregnant again. 3 days before my youngest turned 8 months. Really cant believe my luck. I didnt even try this time. I know its a blessing but the shock of the whole situation hasnt quite set in. Cant really get over the fact that I will be 22 with 3 kids and 2 of them under 2. Im Haitian, my mother and fathers child, determined, strong-willed, and strong-minded. I CAN HANDLE THIS!. I will eventually be so excited I cant stand it. But right now:
February 12, 2012:
Im still waiting on my first appointment to confirm my pregnancy. Last night I had my first round of morning sickness. Havent told my 4 year old yet. She talks to much I want to get out of the miscarriage possible stage.

: Been looking at baby names. The decision (not exactly final) is Nastacia Honore' for a girl. Still deciding for a boy, might let daddy name him.
February 18, 2012:
Nausea decides to come at anytime of day. Nothing new. Morning sickness tends not to escape me. I am super bloated for 5 weeks 5 days and I have seen too many signs of twins....February 20, 2012:
I called this morning to set up my appt. I go March 6th. I cant wait . I get to see my new little joy.
March 6, 2012:
Went to the doctor today. Thought I was going to see the baby today didnt get to. I was a little disappointed. They had to do my yearly exam because its been over 12 months since I had a pap. Lucky me! My next appt. is March 16th
. That is when they will do my first official baby appt. Cant wait!
The baby looked beautiful on my first u/s. It's just one. My due date is right on the money. Heart rate was 174 most likely another girl. A lady at our traveling consignment sale in town has a friend that can predict. She predicted a girl for her and shes having a girl. Also predicted girl for me.
