I've been meaning to share this for some time. So, I teach high school and I have a freshmen homeroom. I found out in Jan. that one of my students was pg. Apparently, she just found out too and she was already 6 months along! She said she thought she had just gained some weight and thought it was normal , but she was clearly pg when she arrived back to school.
Sadly, this girl is so immature, I mean she's 14! I've heard her and some of the other girls commenting on feeling the baby move. It is just so hard, knowing that all of us want a baby so badly and would be great moms. I try to be as positive with her as possible, and ask her questions if she is ready and/or nervous. She simply shrugs and seems indifferent towards the idea that she will be a mom in a month. I don't think she gets it (of course she doesn't!)
I think at first I felt like I couldn't even look at her and her growing belly. (not to mention she wears 80's spandex clothing that clings to every part of her body at 8 months pg). Now, I just think about how wonderful the day will be when I'm pg and how fortunate I am that I wasn't a mom at 14. I feel for this new baby, her mom is just a baby. Anyways, just wanted to share...
