I found out I was pregnant when I was 18 almost 19. I was so scared, at first I was thinking about getting an abortion, but I thought about it.. And I really could not do it. So I decided to keep it. Those 9 months were the longest 9 months I have ever experienced. I had frequent bladder infections. Was in the hospital for a kidney infection. And I gained a lot of weight. I had finally gotten down to my goal body size and I was so proud, and then, BAM my weight shot back up. I was huge. Luckily now that my son is about 5 months old, I am shedding the weight. My stomach is saggy and covered with stretch marks. But, I have grown to love them. They show my journey. And if anyone sees my stomach, they will know, I have had a child. And, on top of weight, and everything else I had to get a c-section. But, once again just another mark that shows my journey. I am so proud of who I have become. I have just turned 20, and in this past year I have changed who I am inside and out. My boyfriend and i are still together. And adore our son. And not for one second have I regretted keeping him. I lost a lot of friends, but I gained the love of my life. And these 5 months have flown by. And that is all I really need.
