My name is Brooke and i found out 2 weeks ago that i am pregnant, I'm just turned 16 and my boyfriend Jack is 19. I only realized cos i was gaining weight and my stomach was so big that it stuck out further than my breasts, so i went to the local family planning clinic thing or whatever this one was called and they gave me a test and it was positive and she felt my belly and she said she thought i might be 20+ weeks along!

I was completely shocked, i had been having periods, they were a little light but still and how could i have not realised. When i was sick, i just thought i had a bad stomach bug!

In a half hour i am going to the doctor, my boyfriend Jack is going to take me there. He was the first person i told, shocked does not describe his face when i said that i might be so far along.

We havn't told anyone yet, we are thinking that i could probably move in with Jacks mum cos his sister has a 4 month old baby and she was alowed to live there. My mum is not the nicest person in the world and will be furious that i have thrown my life away (well that's what she said to my sister when she got pregnant, at 22).

I know that i will need to tell my parents and the school, i have been getting out of sports because I teach sport to little kids instead. I think that some people at school have guessed already, i'm so confused about how i should be feeling. i'm so scared that i won't be a good parent, or that Jack will leave me and get bored of being a Daddy. Or that i will never talk to my parents again, and that we will not find somewhere to live. But i kind of happy, well a little bit excited.

Well, Jack has arrived to pick me up, so i better go!
