Congratulations on your little girl! My son was born January 9th :) You should come check out the January 2010 Play Group. The ladies there are awesome and it's nice being with people who all have kids the same age as yours.

Yeah we were an expecting club, where you hang out with women who are due the same month as you, and then it turns into a play group when you have your babies. Here is the link:

Welcome Aubrey!

My name is Renee, and I'm 24 - but I was 18 and a senior in HS when I had my daughter. She is now 6 and her name is Paris Renee. I'm married to her father, Ryan, for 2 years, but we've been together since our sophomore year of HS.

I admire your strength to have your daughter while being a single mother, I'm sure it's not easy - but, I bet you're doing a great job! I can't wait to hear your story more and learn more about you!

Welcome, again :-)

Okay that sounds fun, I’ll look into it. I was thinking I’d join the Teen Moms board so I could gain support from other girls my age. I think it’s a lot different being a single mom at 18 than a single mom at 30 or 40.

I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter's father. Does he pay you any money, if you don't mind me asking? Sadly, some men are like that - but you seem to have a great head on your shoulders, and seem to be doing awesome! You sound like a great mom. Huge hugs to you going through this with out her father, but you are doing great!

I graduated pregnant, my daughter wasn't born until after DH and I had graduated, but I feel your pain. I can only imagine how hard that must be raising a LO and trying to keep your grades up, but hang in there! Only a few more months, then you're out of there!

Also, I'm sorry to hear about you missing out on your senior trip. Are you going to prom? And don't say you're missing out on fun, because being with your daughter is fun (as you know), just not the typical "teenage fun". But, you need "me" time too. Mommy's always need a break, no matter for how long - it keeps us sane! See if you can enjoy your senior year a little, and do something with your friends! You obviously know your limits, but you need to celebrate how far you've made it also!

Look forward to talking with you more!

Thank you so much. No, he doesn't pay me any money. But I'd rather have it that way because then he would be able to see her, and I don't want him to see her. I know it's important for her to have her father in her life but he is not a good person. And I would rather not have her around his current girlfriend either.

Well I have been contemplating going to prom bc it would only be for 3-4 hours that I would be gone.

But you're right spending time with Kylie is a lot of fun. She has such a personality already and I enjoy mostly every minute with her (I could do without the diaper changing lol). She has really changed my life. And it's really hard to believe she's  month old already!

And thank you :) When I was pregant I was watching all those shows like 16 and Pregnant and I think they actually taught me what not to do. I told myself that I didn't want to be a mother like those girls, so that's what I've tried to strive for.

It's great that you're financially stable with out him. You and only you knows what's best for your daughter, and if not seeing him is what's best - that's what matters. Nobody can tell you otherwise!

I was pregnant when prom hit, and I went and wouldn't have missed it! It was a great time, and such a great way to celebrate with all your class that you did it. If you can find a babysitter, and are comfortable, and can go reasonable, I'd go!

Can't wait to see pictures of your LO!

I am in the same place you are. I know it is hard. My baby girl is 7 weeks old tomorrow. She is my world even though her dad is no good i never regret her. Your daughter is beautiful. Here is mine.
