Hi everyone. My name is Brinna. I'm 16 yrs old and I'll be 17 in April. I just found out a couple of weeks ago that I'm pregnant. I didn't realize that I might be pregnant until after I missed my second period. My life has been very busy and stressful so it took me awhile to realize that I wasn't having my periods. I feel stupid for not noticing for so long. I should have had my second period about two weeks ago. I actually just started to get some symptoms last week, not much though. I don't think I've gained any weight yet either. I haven't gone to the doctor yet so I don't know for sure exactly how far along I am but I think I'm anywhere from 10-12 weeks.

I haven't told anyone yet. The father of the baby doesn't even know. I have no idea how I'd even tell him. He's 22 and about a month ago he decided that he wanted to be "free" and not tied down after we've been together for almost a year (9 months). Just before I found out I was pregnant I found out from a friend of his that he moved to Michigan to be with some girl that I guess he's been fooling around with for a few months or something. Well I have no idea how to get a hold of him. I never met his parents or any of his family because they live in a different state so I'm really lost with all of that, but I'm also kind of glad in a way because now I don't have to deal with him any more. I'm still really mad at him for cheating on me and then out of no where breaking up with me and moving so far away. I know I should try and figure out a way to get a hold of him but I really don't want to.

Thanks for all the welcomes and congrats everyone. I've thought about what you all have said and I think I will try and get in touch with the father at least just so I can get child support out of him.

I called the social services office in my town and was assigned a case worker. She gave me a lot of advice and really helped me figure out what I need to do. So she said that if I can get a verification of my pregnancy from a doctor then she can help me get medical coverage. So I'm going to try and get that done tomorrow after school. I'm just going to go to planned parenthood. Then I'll go in and fill out the applications. I'm going to try and get this all done tomorrow. She told me that if I get the paperwork filled out fast then I should be able to get coverage within a couple of days since it's considered an emergency I guess or something like that.

I still haven't told anyone yet, I guess aside from you guys and the case worker. I don't know when I will. I want to finish school. I'm a junior right now so I'm so close but I don't know if I'll be able to or not. I'm going to try though I think.

Welcome to the board. I'm Callie, my bf is Abry, and I'm 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow.

I'm very sorry to hear about the father, he sounds like a real jerk. You deserve better, as does your child. I can't imagine having to go through that alone. I feel alone and scared everyday even though my bf is right by my side and always has been. I hope all works out with this.

Feel free to message me any time. :)
