Heather your doing so well sweetie! Depression is a horrible thing to have I've suffered with it since before I had kids and have been on medication for nearly a year now and I feel like a new person, I'm also a better mother and partner! If your still struggling please don't hesitate to see your doctor about going back on the meds, its not a bad thing and nothing to be ashamed of, ive learnt that the hard way! My stubbornness and embarrassment of 'Giving in' to medication nearly saw my 2 beautiful kids without a mother just before Christmas. So I'm kinda glad I saw sense!

I also need me time, A LOT actually lol if I'm having a bad day my oh takes the kids up his mums house for an hour or 2, sometimes thats all you need! Lol

I like to think of your story and how strong you are, it gives me hope, even though I'm a bit older than you, I find you more of an inspiration than most people my age.

Keep up the goos work heather, I enjoy reading your updates. 💜

I can't believe this thread is still getting posts after such a long time!

Gabriella is 2 years old and growing strong and healthy everyday. She is still slightly behind size-wise, but almost there. She hasn't seemed to have entered the terrible twos yet.

FOB and I are still together. I moved in with him, which was a huge adjustment for me and was really difficult because my family was against me moving in with him so it caused some tension. My mom just doesn't like me "shacking up" with guys. It's like, we have a child together - people know we had sex. Things are better now. I'm getting ready to finish my second year of college, which I'm finding really easy. I'm off on Fridays, so Gabriella goes to a sitter Monday-Thursday. I'm not as stressed out about being a parent now -it's finally become normal to me. If course, I haven't talked to anyone I went to high school with in about a year. Our lives are just completely different and I'm fine with that. Plus, my boyfriend is way more attractive than all my "friend's" boyfriends they've met at college
I do struggle with making friends now because my life is still a lot different than most of my classmates and I'm also not interested in typical college life. Plus, I prefer to just be at home instead of going out. But I do wish I could find people I had more in common with.

Step 1: Relax. Breathe. Stressing out will scare you more than you already are.
Step 2: Do you have a car? Planned Parenthoods and Women's Centers are very helpful for teens. As I recall, they don't tell your parents, but research that, I'm not sure. You want to go to the doctor first and confirm you're pregnant, and that you're okay. People don't want to let the news out until then because it could just be a missed period or a miscarriage can happen.
Step 3: Tell the father first, in this situation. Because he's legal and you're not, your parents will immediately worry that you were aggressively raped. Talk to him and let him know what's happening.
Step 4: Tell your parents and do not lie about the fact that you had consensual sex with an older guy. You don't want anyone physically hurt and if your parents knew that, maybe they'd avoid charging him with statutory rape. Sit down with them and thoroughly explain yourself. Ask of them to hold on with their judgments or reactions until you're done, listen and accept responsibility.

I know it must be terrifying to think about, but you should just be honest. But firstly, calm down and take care of yourself. If my reply didn't help, wikiHow has a lot of good articles on how to break the news of being a pregnant teenager to everyone.

Holy moly! It took some time, but I just read through the whole thread and wanted to add one more I-just-read-through-this to the heap! It's lovely to read all that you've been through and see an update like this most recent one.

I wanted to add that I really appreciate that you keep coming back to update everyone. You may feel that this thread has been a place to ask questions and vent, like it's only for your benefit. But I want to make sure you know, as much as you've taken from this thread and these people you've never met over the years, I guarantee you've given just as much back to all of us! You've shared so much of your private life and your feelings and you've been so open, honest, humble, and kind. Even in the moments you thought you were being selfish or horrible. You gave so much to those that are going through or have been through something similar to know they're not alone in their feelings. Even though my own life and experiences with pregnancy and motherhood (so far) have been so different to yours, there were so many things I could relate to and it made me realize I'm not the only one to feel certain ways, especially in regards to those first several weeks of motherhood.

I'm so happy you're all flourishing and Gabby is thriving under your love and care. I wish you the best and I hope you're proud of everything you've done!
