hi I'm Chelsey. I'm 12 weeks pregnant and 21 years old. My pregnancy was unplanned. I left a three year abusive relationship where my ex would not let me work or attend college. Decided to take the time to get my life turned around. I was not expecting to meet anybody anytime soon and then I Met my current boyfriend and became pregnant after 5 months in the relationship. I decided to keep my baby because I feel children are the biggest blessings you can ever receive.

Welcome... Sounds like things are a bit scary for you right now.. But I wanted to say that I've been in a similar situation.

I was 19 when I had my first baby. I had been with the Dad for about a week. My daughter is my biggest blessing (shes 13 now!) Sometimes things seem crazy and impossible, but just wanted you to know that they can get a lot better.... Mine did for sure. It was hard, but it was well worth it!


Love to you

Way to go on finding the courage to leave your abusive ex!  That is really wonderful.  :)


Also, congrats on your pregnancy!  I was young when I had my first children.  I married straight out of high school and had a baby two weeks shy of a year later when I was 19.  I had baby #2 only 18 months later.  I've never had any regrets.  You'll love being a mom!
