Due Mar 25, 2012 (boy)
Joined a little late into my pregnancy. Even so my name is Melanie.. cant decide which last name to put so I just wont put any! I accidently conceived my little monster on July 4 and found out of the pregnancy a few weeks later on my birtday(July 25). While its true that I'm only 17, I think my partner and I have done more than many pregnant teens have. He finished with school two years ago and I had a year left, with that in mind I recieved my G.E.D and will be starting college in the fall. Josue and I also moved in together and have our 2bdrm all set up! Big changes come with a baby and were up for this challenge, but its always nice to hear from other moms. So even if your 37 not 17 I know your body is creating a miracle just like mine. 8)
