I know I haven’t written in a while, besides in my journal. Even then it is still more work than play. I try to keep it going, but I don’t find myself wanting to write much anymore.
So much has happened in the past few months. I’ve dropped out of school, that being one. I still haven’t gotten my GED but I WILL. Soon.
I am 17 weeks pregnant on the 3rd of April. Which is Saturday. Avery and I are still together, and will always be. I will soon be moving in with him and his family. Despite my being only 17, I’m very excited to become a mom. I’m very excited indeed.
The hardest part was telling Avery’s parents. They cried and cried, and so did we, there was a lot of anger, and a lot of yelling, but we got through it, together, and now everyone is excited and accepting.
My mom was 16 when she had her first. I told her before anyone, and she was so understanding. She told my dad for me. He didn’t really care, and he still doesn’t. I guess he didn’t want to be a grandfather so early.
I felt my baby move for the first time on March 28, 2010.
Doctor visits are always exciting. At my last one, I had 5 viles of blood drawn, and a Doppler rolled across my belly. I got to hear its heartbeat for the second time. I was so happy.
On May 10th, I get my second ultrasound. We will know the sex, and I know I will cry that day, as soon as I lay eyes on my baby again. But Avery will be there to hold my hand and wipe my tears, as he always is.I will face this new chapter of my life with a smiling face, no matter how hard things get. I will love my baby no matter what. I will stay with my love no matter what. No matter what the future holds, we will be a family, and we will be strong for one another.
