39weeks pregnant update

Sorry I haven’t updated in a while.. internet has been down.. and I am forced to use my cell phone to post.

So I am 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant. And I am more then ready to have my Little girl. I’m sick and tired everyday. I’m tired of feeling like crap and I want to meet my little girl:) my doctor doesn’t believe in waiting 2weeks after your due date to induce so if I don’t have my baby girl by July 5th I am being induced July 6th at 5pm. I an really scared to be induced. I know its harder on your body then natural labor is. So everyday I walk, climb stairs, bounce around, etc. All in efforts to get this baby out. I feel contractions every so often and at my last appointment my doctor said I was dilated a little and she could feel the babies head.. I pray every day for a healthy and happy labor, delivery, and baby. And that it comes super soon.
Well that’s all

for now:) thanks for reading.

Maddison. With Two D’s

Is it such a problem to name my daughter Maddison because is means “son of Matthew”?(going by what someone told me)

In the opinions of others, it is a problem. Supposedly it’s over used, and I am giving my daughter a guy name. Ha that’s funny because I have never met a guy with that name. The closest name I have ever heard on a guy is Addison and that is her father’s name. We are naming my daughter Maddison after her father Addison.

So if it’s not bad enough that people (who I have no relation to) hate the fact that I am naming her Maddison because of the meaning, they are so pissed that the name has 2 d’s… WTF… Last time I checked it was up to the parents of a child what to name them and how to spell it.. Correct? or am I wrong?

Sorry for the useless rant.. Thanks for reading..  🙂

Letters to Maddy: A negative + a negative = A positive

You made me fat. You make me tired. You sit on my nerves, leaving me doubled over in pain. You have given me horrible stretch marks that will scar my body forever. You have made it hard to walk. You have given me swollen ankles and feet. You keep me up all night(and that wont change when you arrive). You make my back hurt and my head ache. But, guess what? I LOVE YOU. Even if you do keep me running to the restroom all night. I wouldn’t change it for the world. You make me so happy:) I love you Maddison. your amazing baby girl. I love you!

“With arms wide open”

This song is currently my ringtone for my phone. I know it is about being a DAD, and I am going to be a mother, but this song is the first song that popped into my head when I found out I would be a mother. I cry sometimes when I listen to it. I am here for my daughter with arms wide open. I will hold her in my arms when she cries, and I will teach her right from wrong and pray to God that she fallows the right path. And may God give me and my Boyfriend the strength to be the best parents we possibly can be. I will never forget the day I read the pregnancy test and it had two lines. I remember just feeling empty but not in a bad way. I felt hopeful. And i knew from that point out I would be responsible for a life. And I have to take care of my body to ensure a safe arrival into this dangerous world. And when she is born i will have to watch over her and let her grow independently from a child to a women. I hope she doesn’t make the same mistakes as me. And I hope she realizes that I love her and always will.

“Well i just heard, the news today. Seems my life, is gunna change, I close my eyes, begin to pray, then tears of joy, stream down my face, With arms wide open.”

35 weeks pregnant update.

Today I am 35 weeks and 2 days pregnant. The final stretch. It has been a very long journey to get here and I can’t wait to get to the finish line. Many people ask me if I am scared. Well yes and no. I am not scared of the pain because I have god by my side and there is nothing I can do to change the fact that it WILL be painful. But I am scared of any complications that may arise during labor or after the birth of my daughter (btw i  am having a girl). But I am praying and will continue to pray. I just want people to realize that yes I am young but I know with the help of my boyfriend/baby daddy, my family, and God I will be the best mother I can be. So far I have almost everything we need for the arrival of my baby girl. We have all the big stuff such as car seat, stroller, bassinet(soon upgrade to crib), diapers and wipes. All we need is the little stuff. Like toiletries and what not, which hopefully we will receive at my upcoming baby shower june 11. So we are pretty much ready for her arrival. I just hope she is born healthy and happy. I do plan to breastfeed to maximize her health. Hopefully that will go smoothly.

Now more about how I am feeling:)

I have been feeling so impatient. I am ready to meet her and see what features she has and if she looks like me or her daddy. I feel so so huge..ALL THE TIME. I haven’t been able to see my toes in forever. And don’t get me started on stretch marks.. There taking over my stomach. I hope I can find something that will help them fade postpartum. I have also been having Braxton hicks contractions a lot. But other than that I have been feeling pretty good and ready to have my baby.

So that’s pretty much it for week 35 of my pregnancy. Thank you, enjoy(:

My life changed

I am 35 weeks pregnant. Yes I am young which is probably what many people are thinking. But I am ready to be a mother.. This pregnancy by far was NOT planned but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I already love my little girl.. Her name will be Maddison. I want to reach out to teens who have sex and encourage them to wait. Which is part of the purpose of my blog. Me and my boyfriend did use condoms and we still ended up in this sticky situation. So teens if you think your safe your really not. Abstinence is truly the only way to make sure you are safe. So yeah. Please take my advice and DO NOT have sex.

How I found out.

How I found out I was pregnant was pretty typical.

On Sept. 24 i started my period a day late. So i didn’t think much of it I was just relieved not to be pregnant.But this period was not like normal, it was slight, and only lasted 3 days. But at the time i just let it pass my mind.

A couple weeks later on Oct 10 i decided to take another test. I do not really know what made me decide to take the test, because i wasn’t experiencing any symptoms really, except for frequent urination. Any how,  I took the test and it came back negative. I was shocked but happy.

So by october 24 i still hadn’t started my period. Which again was a day late so i decided to take another test. And this time it was postive. I remember the first think I did was text my boyfriend “It had two lines” and then got into the shower. When i got out of the shower i  read the text from my bf that said “does that mean positive.” then i called him to explain everything out to him.

So later that night i called up my friend Kassie who is also pregnant. I told her whats going on and asked her to take me to the store to by another test just in case. So we get to the store and we buy multiple test. We bought a Clear blue easy digital which came with three test a equate brand which came with one test and then first response which came with 3 tests also. We went to the McDonalds and drank lots of sprite, then i took 2 first response test 2 clear blue test and the equate tests all of them came back postive.

The next morning I took the last clearblue test but, it didn’t show any response so i took the last first response and it was positive. I was still in such denial i was so afraid.

So after 6 positive test i decided to call the local pregnancy center which is a free clinic to get a doctors test. And it to was positive. After that i knew i had to tell my parents but .. i did not know how to, but i did.

More about me and my pregnancy

I am a pregnant teenager. I know it is a touchy subject, but I also know its because this is an unknown subject. Many people think that teenagers get pregnant because they are permiscuious or that they are always out having sex, or maybe because they are not taken care of properly. And yes this is true in some cases, but not all cases. And though I wish I would have waited to have sex, i didn’t and now i am in this beautiful situation and I wouldn’t change if for the world. I believe god puts obsticles in our way for a reason so we can grow as humans. I assure all my readers that I am NOT permiscuous and i am not the average teen. I do not drink, smoke, or do drugs. I do not go out and party. Yes i do have fun and hang out with my friends but also be mindful that i am a straight A student and i do have plans for my future and i am not going to let pregnancy or parenting ruin those plans even though it will be harder. Why am I telling you all of this information, well simply because this can happen to anyone even intelligent young citezens like myself and some other people i have met in my life. NO i did not have the best childhood and no i am not a perfect teen either. I have a amazing boyfriend who has been by my side since day one and i believe even if we ever do break up, he will still be there to help me. Now that you have more information on me i hope that you read my blogs to come and take in consideration to my situation. 🙂
