Makes me sick to see girls in highschool get pregnant so fast..
And from like a one time "oops-y".
I've been watching that "16 and pregnant" show on MTV, and it's driving me nuts how all they do is have sex ONCE and BAM! they are pregnant. I just don't get it! How can it happen so easy and fast for them? When they can't even support the baby on their own? Why can't it happen to those of us who can support a baby and actually WANT to be pregnant..
Also like 10 girls from my graduating class are already expecting. Seems like everyday someone new is finding out they are cooking up a little miracle. And it's hard to say "congratulations" when all i really wanna do is be in their position.
Especially since i have Lupus, it is that much harder for me to even get pregnant.. so i get pretty down in the dumps when i see all of these pregnant young people.
Yes, i am young as well. But with my Lupus, i don't even know if i AM fertile. And if i am, i don't know how long i will be, with all of the medication i take. Also, we can support ourselves and a baby. We are married, he's in the military, and we have our own house.
..Sorry for all the rambling.. i just had to express my feelings!
yeah i dont understand that either how all the girls in high school get pregnant so easily.....makes NO SENSE! and they dont want a baby....people who are ttc want one bad and it usually takes time which sucks. i swear so many ppl from highschool and the college i used to go to are getting pregnant by the minute....more and more announcements on facebook.
like you said it makes me want to be in their shoes. dont worry, we will have our time, we just have to stay positive!
Oh I feel you! Last summer I worked with a young girl who was moving far away and wasnt so happy about it so my job was to take her out and take her mind of it so she didnt take it out on her mother (she has mental health issues) Im a DSW so I work with individuals like her or with disabilities. Anyway they endedup moving and a couple months ago her mom emailed me and told me that shes having a hard time where they are and asked if id be willing to let her move in with me so she could be back here with her friends. OH and I just bought a new house and its only a 2 bedroom so I explained that our new house only has 2 rooms and we are currently trying to fill that room and apoligized. She said she understood. A week later her daughter posted on facebook that she was a month pregnant! Shes 16... what a slap in the face after just telling her mom we were trying
i know how you feel......im a social worker myself and often work with young girls who get pregnant very quickly......all i can put it down to is that both mother and father are so young they must be very very fertile. (just the other day a 13yr old girl i work with told me she was pregnant and is well over 4 months!!)
and my dear work friend announced last friday she is pregnant and will tell us all officially at our girlie meal this friday!! and i get to be all 'yay for you' when inside im thinking boooo when will it be my turn to annouce these things??
Oh I completely understand. I wish everyone else that I know would just stop having sex and announcing pregnancies so that I can have my turn! I just feel like I want it to be just about us when we announce it so I don't want it to be like the same week as someone else we know and stealing each other's thunder.
I know exactly what you mean so many people I know have babies - and so many of them were "oopsie" babies... A girl at work has just announced she's pregnant, after fervently telling us she didn't want children - and I have to listen to her going on about how much of a shock it was and how she didn't want her baby at first.... It's so hard! And so unfair!!!
