3. 16 and pregnant

Being 16 and pregnant was not easy! I didn't know much about babies but I always knew one day I'd be a mom. 

I found out I was pregnant when I was 6 weeks along. The first person I told was Tyler and he took the news ok. I was 15 years, 7 months when I found out but I was 16 years and  4 months when I actually gave birth.

Labour was not pleasant and it was made worse because my labour lasted 39 hours. I got the epidural but it wore off by the time I could push so I delivered Ever drug- free. I was a child having a child, so it felt worse than I'd imagine it would with an older mom.

The show, 16 and Pregnant didn't air until I'd had Everleigh and no one I knew was a mom so I didn't have anyone who could tell me about the real struggles of the motherhood.

My parents were married and the right age when me and my siblings were born, so even though they supported me, they didn't understand completely. 

Over the years, I've met moms who had their kids as teenagers so I've made a lot of mommy friends who I can finally relate to.
