Went to my weekly checkup! Currently 29 weeks and 6 days :) I cried all throughout the first ultra-sound, but recently my doctor has only been listening to the heart beat, and while I think its cute and exciting, I never got to emotional about it. But today, when I heard the heart beat, it really lifted me up and filled me with joy, as corny as that sounds. I'm so excited to have my little boy. Sure, this isn't by any means the ideal time for me to have a baby, but it's to late to go back and Blake is my son and I will love him no matter what. There's no point in being depressed or upset anymore, I'm 16 and pregnant, and I'm over it. It's only forward from here on out, and I really can't afford to care about what people think. I'm not here for them anymore. I'm not even here for me. I'm here for Blake and he's really all that matters. While its absolutely terrifying and I'm scared out of my mind, I know that everything will work out one way or another. I have a family that will not let me fail, and nor am I even giving myself the option to fail. I'm having a good day today, I'm in a good mood, and I feel up for the challenge. Anyways, I'm getting the crib tomorrow! And I don't really believe in those superstitions about setting up the crib a week before your due..so I will be posting pictures :)

When you think of a teen mom, you think of an irresponsible teenager that's selfish, immature, and has no idea what the real world is like, or what they are getting themselves into. And in some cases, you would have hit the nail on the head. But not all. I am 30 weeks pregnant, 16 years old, and a junior in highschool. And you don't know me. I'm not a slacker, a slut, or just an idiot kid with a deadbeat boyfriend. I'm on honor roll, all varsity sports, AP classes, president of my class, with a boyfriend of two years, of whom is the farthest thing from a deadbeat. People are to quick to judge. Did I mean for this pregnancy to happen? NO! Was I being irresponsible? No. Did you know that your birth control becomes ineffective when you take certain antibiotics? Well I didn't. And well, here I am. But the purpose of this blog is to provide support for girls out there like me, who aren't your 'average' teen mom and have every intention of being successful in life, but who sometimes find it intimidating when it feels like the world is against you. I was curious, so i searched 'being a teen mom at 17' on google. You can imagine all the things I found. I can understand why people have these certain preconceptions about being a teen mom, and they have every right to. With the media and whatnot, teen moms are always portrayed the same, typically as losers, throwing their life away because they were irresponsible. It's just frustrating! I don't care about statistics! I WILL finish highschool. I WILL finish college! Will it be easy? NO! I know that I would not be able to do it by myself, or without the amazing support I have from my family. BUT STILL! It's just so discouraging to see people ranting and raving about how teen moms will go no where in life, they won't finish school, they won't be successful, ect. So I'm going to start this blog in hopes that maybe, some girl like me, confused but not completely lost, will stumble across this site and maybe not feel so alone.
