I had my daughter when I was 19 and it was a pretty difficult process for me. I didn’t really know how to deal with the contractions, or what was really going on. But with the help of my baby’s dad’s mom it got easier. It got a lot more easier when I got the epidural. I felt so much better after that.
I am 20 now and my daughter is 1 year and 2 months. I’m not going to lie, it’s been hard; even with her dad around I feel like I’m a single mom. At the moment I am attending school and also being a home health nurse for my mom. It gets frustrating at times with not much help. But at the end of the day when I get to see her smile, it’s all worthwhile.
I’m glad I went through all of this. I love being a mom. It’s the best feeling in the world, to have someone love you unconditionally. I wouldn’t give up my life or my choices for anything. I love this life.
