i just had my first baby girl back in late july. im 22 and i wasnt ready for a kid....i wanted to be married and financially stable. plus i was enjoying going out with friends and doing what i want when i want. i cryed when i found out i was pregnant...i knew how upset my parents would be. everytime i saw the ultrasound i fell in love with my baby...its the miracle of life. labor scared the shit out of me. i didnt even think i would know when i went into labor...i feared i wouldnt know what a contraction was. the day after my due date i went into labor..i ignored the contractions for a few hours then my mom made me go to the hospital. the pain wasnt bad at first but it did get bad. people who go without drugs are strong women...i got the epidural. i ended up having a c section. when i heard that first cry i cryed. you will love that baby more then life its self. that baby is part of you. i was in the hospital for 3 days and had vaginal bleeding for 3 weeks. its not easy but it worth it. youll be fine..people have done it for years :)

I know how you feel! (: Im 17 and I have a 2month old son named Avery. I went a week and a day past my due date, ended up being induced. Labor hurt and wasnt a walk in the park for me because I ended up not being able to recieve any pain medication due to my nurse checking my cervix wrong and me dialating so fast but delivery was nothing but relieving. When I finally held my baby it hit me that I was no longer a normal teen and I was finally saying good bye to my freedom and sleep, it was tough for the first week and a half because it took alot of adjusting to my new baby and coming to realization with all that happend but now 2 months later I am so happy that I have my son, I wouldnt take back getting pregnant for anything. Just being able to wake up to his smiling face everyday makes everything so much better (: PT me if you want more details of my labor and birth.
