Just a year ago..
Tomorrow will be Oct. 3rd, and that means only one month until Grace turns one!! It all went by so fast! It really seems like just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant.
I didn't have this blog when I was pregnant, so I wanted to talk about it a little bit..
I found out I was pregnant in March of 2009. I was in complete denial. I was two weeks late, and still "didn't think I was pregnant" so Chris bought the test and made me take it lol. You know how the results are supposed to take like 3 minutes to appear? Well mine instantly said positive, yet I thought maybe the test was wrong lol. I took another one, which said positive too. There was no denying it. I as terrified.. not for myself, but for my baby. I wanted to be able to give my baby everything in life, and I knew that wasn't going to be easy as a teenager. I hadn't even graduated, still lived with my mom, and didn't have a stable job. However, I knew I was going to do the best I could for my child. It would take a lot of sacrifices, growing up, and hard work, but I was determined to be a good mother and give my child everything I could.
And now here I am :) I hae done better than I ever imagined I would. I am so glad I am able to provide a good life for my daughter!
Here are some pics from my pregnancy..
My little peanut! This was my first ultrasound at 10 weeks and she was only the size of a peanut :)
This is from my second ultrasond.. I don't remember what week it was.. it's in her baby book, but I don't have it with me. However, this is where we found out she was a girl!
These are from my 4D ultrasound at 28 weeks!
And this is from my last ultrasound. I was 30-something weeks, so she was a little crapmed in there.
This is where Chris painted my tummy for halloween :) Grace's true first halloween costume lol.
I was 8 months here.
Not sure how far along.. but I like this one :)
I was six months here.
Only 4 and a half months here.. I didn't start reall showing until six months along.
And this is when I went into the hospital. Chris kept taking pictures of me lol. But this is the last pic I have of me when I was pregnant. Not to long after this little Grace was born!
Sort of random note.. when I was pregnant I only missed school when I had doctors appointments and I even tried to schedule my appointments for after school so I wouldn't miss if I could. And if I did have an appointment during school I would go to school when my appointment was over. On last weeks episode of Teen Mom I heard Catelynn say that her and Tyler missed a lot of school because she was pregnant. For starters.. I don't see how that is an excuse for Tyler at all! He was not pregnant. And for Catelynn.. I think being pregnant is only an excuse if you want it to be. Catelynn never had any issues with her pregnancy as we saw on her episode of 16 & Pregnant, so she really has no excuse. She didn't even have to prepare for her child, so she didn't have towork extra hours or anything.
Also, I do not believe that they didn't know they weren't going to graduate. I could see if they were both only one credit behind because of failing a class the last semester or something, but they were six credits behind! That is a whole years worth of class of they go by periods, and over a year if they go by blocks! There is no way they didnt know.
Also, Amber is being investigated by CPS for neglect and the Madison County Police Department for domestic abuse! The police department is also thinking of charging the producers of Teen Mom with failure to report a crime because they have had that footage for so long and done nothing about it, and I agree with that decision, but anyway.. finally somethingis being done about Amber!!
